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 there’s a classic bit of business in which he greedily stuffs his face at a swank New Year’s Eve party.
