Comedy of the ultimate loser ....the unemployed actor !!
29 January 2002 | by (Rome,Italy) – See all my reviews

...Only Alberto Sordi could play the role of an unemployed theater actor,who hustles his way through unpaid bills, who constantly overvalues himself,scorns the lesser arts(e.g.films), but is constantly humiliated by his poverty, and accepts any role at the last minute !!

This film is one of few which gives an affectionate view of the Italian theater between the two world wars called "avan-spettacolo" (before the show).Infact,before any film was shown in Italy the cinema would entertain the restless crowds with vaudeville type shows,comedy,magic and singing(usually skimply dressed women).These shows evolved into something well established so the films were shown elsewhere !! Many of Italy's best actors/actresses came from this background,where they had to do a hard apprenticeship,under the guidance of a master actor !Only after 5-10 years apprenticeship, could they finally aspire to be "avan-spettacolo" stars ! (Since foreigners mostly know Italian films through Federico Fellini's art,it may interesting to note,that the "avan-spettacolo" is almost faithfully reconstructed in Fellini's film "Roma",1972?).

This explains why Italy's best actors/actresses were the 1950's /1960's stars of the Italian cinema,of which the most loved is Alberto Sordi.Here are the names of some these stars...Gianni Agus,Macario,Ugo Tognazzi,Marcello Mastroianni,Walter Chiari,Paolo Stoppa,Aldo Fabrizzi,Toto.....the list is endless..........all great actors, ...and I must say the Italian actors of today are a poor imitation ! No wonder !!,... they have no experience,but alot of pretensions,bordering on arrogance !! This film is a light comedy,but very realistic in the portrayal of the excessive vanity,self-esteem and unrealistic dreams that actors have ! My vote for the film 8.
