Trivia

Jump to: Director Trademark (1)
Federico Fellini cast film editor Leo Catozzo as "The Man with the Sack" and wanted to keep that sequence in the release print over the objections of producer Dino De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis, who thought the scene slowed the film down, finally had to resort to stealing the scene from the editing room. According to DeLaurentiis about five to seven years after its original release, Fellini called him up and begged him to give him back the sequence so he could restore it. As "Cabiria" had now achieved a classic status, the producer agreed.
During the editing of this film, editor Leo Catozzo developed the CIR self-perforating adhesive tape splicer (also known as "Costruzione Incollatrici Rapide", "the Cattozzo", Guillotine-, CIRO- or ARRI Splicer) which made him rich in the 1960s and for which he won an Academy Award in 1989.
According to Federico Fellini's assistant Dominique Delouche, actor 'Francois Perier' was hired so the film could get financing as a French co-production.
