La Strada--An Unforgetable Movie by Federico Felina


By CatherineYen(20,979) CatherineYen



La Strada



Wide eyed and snub nosed, actress Giuletta Masina was no great beauty.  But her face held an innocence and compelling wistfulness that could reach out from the cinema screen and touch the hardest of hearts.

Masina was married to Federico Felina-the great Director of Italy; he saw in her a Chaplinesque charm irresistible to a director.  He set about crafting a story for her that would evoke emotion in all who saw it.

The result was La Strada, the movie that made both their names. La Strada was released in 1954, winning critical acclaim, more than 50 award worldwide, and one Oscar for best foreign film.

La Strada had two famous Hollywood stars in the cast, Anthony Quinn as Zampano and Richard Basehart as the Fool......

Go to visit my links, see Masina's heartwrenchingly sad, and its haunting musical theme proved as popular as the movie. The compendia of this movie will be found in URL link:
