Silvana Mangano (1930-1989)

1. - Giulietta Masina, La strada, Italy, 1954. La strada?” said Federico Fellini’s I Villetoni producer Lorenzi Pegoraro. “Perhaps... but not with Giulietta Masina.” But Fellini had not spent two years honing the scenario (with his then usual partner, Tuilio Pinelli) for anyone other than his wife. “Get another actress - then get another director!” Instead, he found new producers Dino De Laurentiis and Carlo Ponti. And although Dino wanted his wife, the decidedly non-waifish Silvana Mangano, as Gelsomina, Fellini stood firm and became the first winner of an Oscar for a foreign language film. The reason why Dino and Carlo produced 325 films between them and poor Pegoraro... seven.

2. - Anouk Aimée, La Dolce Vita, Italy, 1960. Italian icon Federico Fellini's first choice was blocked by her husband, producer Dino De Laurentiis - because she had been a childhood sweetheart of the film’s star, Mastroianni! Dino grew up and later allowed her to play Marcello’s wife (twice) in the 70/80s

3. - Lucia Bosé, Lumiere, France, 1975. For her directing debut, French star Jeanne Moreau phoned Silvano, her co-star in Five Branded Women, 1960. Busy. As usual, Lucia was (almost) too shy to accept.
