Bekim Fehmiu

1. – Franco Citti, Edipo re/Oedipus Rex, Italy, 1967.  Silvano Mangano asked her director, Pierre Paolo Pasolini, for Bekim after seeing the Cannes prizewinner, Skupljaci perja/I Even Met Some Happy Gypsies – but Yugoslavia’s Albanian-born superstar was booked solid until finally making an unwise stab at international fame in The Adventurers, 1970.
