Set in Italy, all Fellini:

 

*Amarcord*

*La Strada*

*Juliet of the Spirits*

*Fellini Satyricon*

*Fellini's Roma"

*Nights of Cabiria*

 

... to name only a few of my favorites. Of course, Italian directors, kinda like shooting fish in a barrel...

 

So, I'll add *The Italian Job*, 1969 version, of course.

Yes, I tried to stay mainly with U.S. or British productions filmed in Italy. However, I did mention BICYCLE THIEVES and LA DOLCE VITA since they are so well-known internationally.

 

I should've also added OPERATION CROSSBOW.

I should've mentioned THE FABULOUS DORSEYS on the post for the big band era. I wonder if THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS could be considered a loose remake...? LOL

 

Also, WHITE NIGHTS seems to fit with the cold war theme.

 

And for painters, I think we can include two recent pics: FRIDA and ****.
