DIRECTOR: LUCHINO VISCONTI, PIER PAOLO PASOLINI, VITTORIO DE SICA, FRANCO ROSSI, AND MAURO BOLOGNINI

CAST: SILVANA MANGANO, ANNIE GIRARDOT, FRANCISCO RABAL, CLINT EASTWOOD

To this Dino De Laurentiis-produced comedy anthology film, with episodes by Luchino Visconti, Franco Rossi, Mauro Bolognini, and Vittorio De Sica, Pasolini contributed "The Earth Seen from the Moon," featuring The Hawks and the Sparrows star Totò and Pasolini's beloved Ninetto Davoli as father and son, the patriarch hatching a harebrained scheme to net them a new house that goes horribly awry. The sections are linked by a preoccupation with witchcraft and the presence in each episode of Silvana Mangano—and you won’t want to miss Clint Eastwood as a cowboy movie fanatic trying to spice up his married life.
