(1955, Daniel Mann) Tough day for still-in-mourning-after-three-years seamstress Anna Magnani: she learns her beloved husband was a cheater and that her daughter’s got a new boyfriend – and then gets into a fight with Burt Lancaster’s hunky but dim truck driver Mangiacavallo (“Eats like a horse”). Best Actress Oscar for Magnani, in her first Hollywood role, written for her by Williams. Print courtesy Harvard Film Archive. Approx. 117 min. 35mm.
