Leopoldo Trieste

1. – François Perier, Le notti di Cabiria (UK/US: Nights of Cabriria) Italy-France, 1956. Trieste appeared in Federico Fellini’s second feature, Lo sceicco bianco/The White Sheik, in 1952 (the first time Giulietta Masina played Cabiria) and the third, I vitelloni, 1953. By now, he was helming his own movie, Citta di notte (featuring Fellini’s brother, Ruccardo) and suggested the French stage-screen star take his place as the little accountant seducing Masina’s unforgettable, Chaplinesque hooker – with an aspect of Lucille Ball.
