CASANOVA 70 (1965) - MARCELLO MASTROIANNI’s MOVIE POSTERS (Part 1)

We clearly anticipate trends as we said last week we would be focusing on MARCELLO MASTROIANNI movies this week. The Cannes Film Festival just published the poster for its 67th edition featuring our beloved icon!!!

This 10 part blog will focus on on his solo movies (excluding the ones he shot with Sophia Loren and/or Vittorio de Sica - which will be treated next week - as well as 8 &1/2 and La Notte treated previously - see our blog archives)

MM is a modern time Casanova, having conquered the hearts of the most beautiful women in the world so it seems natural to start with the movie where he plays the ultimate seducer.

Directed by Mario Monicelli, the movie sees MM playing a UN soldier traveling the world and seducing as many women as he can in dangerous places (watch trailer here).

The list of his conquests is enough to make any man jealous:  Virna Lisi (see Part 6), Marisa Mell and last but not least Michele Mercier whose flawless backside is featured in the Italian fotobusta below

Along that image you can find probably the coolest MM poster ever made for the Japanese release of the movie as well as the US half sheet and the colorful Danish poster.

All our other MARCELLO MASTROIANNI posters are here

Alternate Poster Design for Dog Day Afternoon (Sidney Lumet, 1975)
thedissolve:


“But the embodiment of all that is good about Popeye is [Shelley] Duvall’s Olive Oyl, who only needs the big shoes and the ornate headdress to look exactly how E.C. Segar imagined her in 1919. Tall, thin, and angular, with saucer eyes, full lips, jet-black hair, and a distinctly breathy tone of voice, Duvall was a symbol of the rebel 1970s in that she didn’t fall within the narrow spectrum of what a movie-star should look or sound like. As many have said, she was “born” to play Olive Oyl, but it’s a real performance, too, flighty and distracted, yet sweet to the core, with perfect little “oooooo” sounds whenever there’s trouble (she’s like a Marge Simpson precursor) and a moony romanticism that carries the spirit of the whole production. Her rendition of Harry Nilsson’s “He Needs Me” resurfaced to great effect in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love—which owes much of its intoxicating mixture of violence, discord, and innocence to Altman’s film—but it stands on its own for its abrasive sweetness.”

In this month’s Departures, Scott Tobias offers a re-evaluation of the much-maligned Popeye, a big-budget, family-friendly musical adaptation that somehow fits snugly into director Robert Altman’s career. [Read more…]
