Directly from the archives of Istituto Luce a roundup of faces and emotions evoked in a period of time, in between the 50’s and 60’s.
Through a rigorous and detailed research well known figures such as Vittorio De Sica, Anna Magnani, Gina Lollobrigida and Sophia Loren are shown in public and private displays.The film star of all stars, Marlon Brando draped across a hospital bed as he generously gives blood under the vigilant eye of Liz Taylor who is in evening wear and sporting a pagoda hairstyle to match...
These famous and irreplaceable faces are not the outline of this short recollection, but the succession of faces around them of figures, who for one short minute left their anonymity behind and took the spotlight in movie parties, talent contests such as:‘ Miss Fregene ‘,‘ The Ladispoli Prize’,‘ Mr.Muscle’ and so on.., and were just as quickly forgotten.
