  • Notes 
    • his family moved to Turin and then Rome. During WW2 he was sent to a German prison camp, but he managed to escape and hide in Venice. In 1945 he started working for the Italian department of Lion Films, Eagle at Rome and joined a drama club, where he was discovered by director Luchino Visconti. He made his "official" movie debut in the film Miserabili, I (1947) and soon became a leading man in popular films like Cronache di poveri amanti (1954) and Bella mugnaia, La (1955). In 1957 Visconti gave him the starring part in his Dostoievski adaptation Notti bianche, Le (1957) and in 1958 he was fine as a little thief in Mario Monicelli's comedy Soliti ignoti, I (1958). But his real breakthrough came in 1960, when Federico Fellini cast him as an attractive, weary-eyed journalist of the Rome jet-set in Dolce Vita, La (1960); that film was the genesis of his "Latin lover" persona, which Mastroianni himself often denied by accepting parts of passive and sensitive men. He would again work with Fellini in several major films, like the exquisite 8 1/2 (1963) (as a movie director who finds himself at a point of crisis) and the touching Ginger e Fred (1985) (as an old entertainer who appears in a TV show). He also appeared as a tired novelist with marital problems in Michelangelo Antonioni's Notte, La (1960), as an impotent young man in Mauro Bolognini's Bell' Antonio, Il (1960), as an exiled prince in John Boorman's _Leo the Last (1970)_ (qv), as a traitor in Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's _Allonsanfan (1974)_ (qv) and as a sensitive homosexual in love with a housewife in Ettore Scola's Giornata particolare, Una (1977). During the last decade of his life he worked with directors, like Theo Angelopoulos, Bertrand Blier and Raoul Ruiz, who gave him three excellent parts in Trois vies & une seule mort (1996).
