The Passionate Thief
Dir. Mario Monicelli (1960). In their only movie together, the great Neapolitan comic Totò appears alongside volcanic diva Anna Magnani in this long night of drama and coincidence. Totò is a bit too pathetic here for my taste, but theres a classic bit of business in which he greedily stuffs his face at a swank New Years Eve party.
