The Magnificent Cuckold (Il magnifico cornuto)

Claudia Cardinale: The Indomitable

Claudia Cardinale plays opposite Ugo Tognazzi in an engaging lighthearted comedy about a philandering businessman who is convinced his wife is unfaithful too. This stylish 1960s marital romp features a lively contemporary soundtrack.

Organized by Camilla Cormanni and Paolo Ruggiero, with thanks to Marco Cicala and Germana Ruscio, Cinecittà.
