Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

A thoroughly entertaining documentary about the beloved Sicilian comic duo Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia, who starred together in over 100 films. Franco and Ciccio were once street artists in Palermo, but became increasingly popular, first in theatre on television, and later film. Between 1964 and 1968, they played the lead roles in no less than 38 films, including War, Italian style with an aged Buster Keaton. Later they worked with artistic directors such as Fellini and Pasolini, but didn't shun more risky excursions, as can be seen by Franco's role in an hilarious parody of Last tango in Paris.
