The sensation of 1960 and most notorious of Fellini films—evocation of jet-set decadence, source of the term “paparazzi”—has a period charm that’s enhanced by big screen projection. The movie ultimately collapses beneath its “exposé” but the sequence where journalist Marcello Mastroianni frolics in the wake of superstar Anita Ekberg is an E! channel landmark.
