A lively compilation of fifteen years of Titanus, one of the greatest stars of Italian cinema
Publicity for the film read: “You will see: Totò’s irritable surgeon; Sophia Loren’s provocative commoner; Alberto Sordi’s appendicitis patient; Gina Lollobrigida’s exuberant “Bersagliera”; Nino Manfredi’s dangerous prisoner; Vittorio Gassman’s stuttering burglar; Silvana Mangano’s mambo dancer; Giancarlo Giannini’s beat singer; Vittorio De Sica’s love-struck policeman; Anna Magnani’s unforgettable florist…” What is this madness? It is an anthology film put together by press agent Antonio Lucherini, presented by Renato Pozzetto and narrated by Oreste Lionello. A well-paced and tasteful collection of fifteen years of the cinema of Titanus, fifteen hugely important years in the history of Italian cinema, packed with its greatest stars. At the time it was an unexpected success, and today it still retains all of its attraction.
A rich anthology of the cinema of Titanus from 1947 to 1962.
