William Dieterle


Because her lover Roberto Rossellini fell for Ingrid Bergman and made her the star of his new film STROMBOLI, Anna Magnani, the diva of neorealismo, got angry. She hired a Hollywood veteran and starred as an alley cat in an abrasive melodrama on the island Vulcano. Her character returns from the big city back into a scarce village and is driven crazy by the locals there. In the end two natural powers meet: the volcano and the Magnani.
