Anto watched a documentary on RAI recently titled Fellini: I’m a Big Liar, which has a series of interviews of people sharing tales about the great Federico Fellini, and what a maniac he was. And no story captures this better than Terence Stamp narrating his experience working with Fellini for the first time, it just puts Fellini on a whole another level in my mind.
In the following clip Stamp talks about his experience acting for Fellini in “Toby Dammit”, which was one of several short macabre films in the Histoires extraordinaires (1968) omnibus film. Give it a little bit, it gets insane pretty quickly, and please note that this has all sorts of narcotically lewd and lascivious descriptions—and may offend you deeply. Enjoy!
An unexpected and crystal clear window into the Maestro. Grazie, Rev.
I demand to be more offended.
Also, Terence is marvelous, darling, maaahvelous.
Right? Isn’t this great, and I agree with @Ed Webb, Terencino is brilliant in his own right.
You are probably right, not all that offensive. But figured the orgy scene wherein Terencino is imagined by Fellini be sodomized by a big black man may raise a few eyebrows :0 or maybe it was the final hit of LSD that sent me over the top. I am getting soft in my old age 🙂
