Registration is required.

Co-directed by Alberto Lattuada, Variety Lights centers around a traveling vaudeville troupe whose quixotic impresario (Peppino De Filippo) is tempted away from his faithful mistress (Giulietta Masina) by the charms of an ambitious young dancer (Carla Del Poggio). A foundational work that exhibits many of Fellini’s distinct preoccupations with performance and that thin veil between the stage and real life. (1950, Italian with English subtitles, DCP, 97 minutes)
