The Night of the Iguana is a 1964 film based on the 1961 play of the same name written by Tennessee Williams.

The film grossed $12 million worldwide at the box office, earning $4.5 million in US theatrical rentals. It was the 10th highest-grossing film of 1964. Time magazine’s reviewer wrote:

“Huston and company put together a picture that excites the senses, persuades the mind, and even occasionally speaks to the spirit—one of the best movies ever made from a Tennessee Williams play.”

The “sweet life”: Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg Famous Scene in the Trevi Fountain (1960)

La Dolce Vita is a 1960 Italian comedy-drama film directed and co-written by Federico Fellini. The film follows Marcello Rubini, a journalist writing for gossip magazines, over seven days and nights on his journey through the “sweet life” of Rome in a fruitless search for love and happiness. La Dolce Vita won the Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for Best Costumes, and remains one of the most critically acclaimed films of all time.

The famous scene in the Trevi Fountain was shot over a week in winter: in March according to the BBC, in late January according to Anita Ekberg. Fellini claimed that Ekberg stood in the cold water in her dress for hours without any trouble while Mastroianni had to wear a wetsuit beneath his clothes – to no avail. It was only after the actor “polished off a bottle of vodka” and “was completely pissed” that Fellini could shoot the scene.
