Divorce Italian Style (Original program for the 1961 film)

By Germie, Pietro (director, screenwriter); Divo Cavicchioli (still photographer); Ennio De Concini, Alfredo Giannetti (screenwriters); Marcello Mastroianni, Daniela Rocca, Stefania Sandrelli, Leopoldo Trieste (starring)

Rome: Lux Film, 1961. Original Italian program for the 1961 film, here under the original Italian title, "Divorzio all'italiana." Illustrated throughout with black-and-white still photos from the film, full-color front wrapper fold-out art, and the program details a synopsis and cast and crew credits. Notations throughout in holograph ink, mostly amending certain words of the synopsis. Ferdinando (Mastroianni) is bored with life and his wife (Rocca). He falls in love with his cousin (Sandrelli), and since divorce is illegal in Italy unless there is just cause (like catching your spouse committing adultery), he decides to find his wife another lover instead of killing her. Seems simple enough. The first of Mastoianni's four "Italian Style" films, and winner of an Academy Award for Best Writing, a BAFTA, three Golden Globes, and nominated for a host of others. 9.5 x 13.25 inches (24 x 33.5 cm), 9 leaves, saddle-stitched. Very Good overall, lacking staples, with creases, brief tears and foxing. Criterion Collection 286.
