(1954, Luchino Visconti) In the last stages of the Risorgimento, Contessa Alida Valli (The Third Man) dallies with Austrian deserter – but also vulnerable dreamer – Farley Granger, for whom she betrays her own Italian cause. We will be showing the English-language version (with Granger and Valli’s own voices) called The Wanton Countess, crediting “dialogue collaborators” Tennessee Williams and Paul Bowles.
