Film Details

Fellini 101. Double Feature!

THE TEMPTATION OF DR. ANTONIO & TOBY DAMMIT

France, Italy | 1962/1968 | Federico Fellini

THE TEMPTATION OF DR. ANTONIO film still

Two short fantasies by Fellini. The first is his contribution to the 1962 portmanteau film Boccaccio ’70. Fellini’s first color movie, it’s a delightful comedy in which a prudish, self-appointed moral watchdog strenuously objects to a neighborhood billboard featuring busty La Dolce Vita star Anita Ekberg, who encourages people to “drink more milk.” Imagine this puritan’s surprise when the giant goddess comes to life! Toby Dammit, the maestro’s psychedelic segment from the 1968 French-Italian omnibus film Spirits of the Dead (showcasing three Edgar Allan Poe adaptations), is a screen translation of Poe’s Never Bet the Devil Your Head. Terence Stamp plays an alcoholic British movie star in Rome who is plagued by diabolical visions. Both 4K restorations! Subtitles. DCP. Total 97 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes or twofers.
