Short Films By Federico Fellini

Three sketches by Fellini from portmanteau films of the 50s and 60s. I no longer recall The Marriage Agency, which comes from the 1953 Love in the City, but The Temptations of Dr. Antonio (1962), from Boccaccio ’70, the principal model for Woody Allen’s contribution to New York Stories, and Toby Dammit (1960), from the Poe anthology Spirits of the Dead, are striking and exceptional fantasies.
