Trivia:
When Mario Monicelli's segment, "Renzo e Luciana", was cut, producer Carlo Ponti offered to finance Monicelli's film as a full-length feature on its own. This was never made. This segment was apparently cut because Monicelli had promised to deliver a "major American star" but failed.See more »

do not miss!, 20 July 2008
Author: indy-39 from United States

Specifically for film lovers,like myself, who only ever got to watch this collection (minus the first segment) on late-late night commercial TV- run out and get a copy of this remastered version. To watch this as it was originally intended- the work of some of Italy's finest directors- is a joy. As for which segment is the best... it's hard to say...Fellini's segment is better than I remembered it...and who could ever forget Anita Ekberg...in truth I have a fondness for all these Italian films I saw in my youth that makes objectivity hard.P.S.: Of course, the same must be said for Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow-also reissued- I nearly cried at how good the print was.
