Giulietta Masina

Highest Rated: 100% The White Sheik (1952)

Lowest Rated: 20% The Madwoman of Chaillot (1969)

Birthday: Feb 22, 1921

Birthplace: San Giorgio di Piano, Italy

Jaunty, wide-eyed Italian screen star, most typically cast as naive, hopeful waifs, best known for her roles in films by husband Federico Fellini. Masina's almost Chaplinesque ability to combine pathos and comedy was put to brilliant use as the strongman's devoted if simpleminded assistant in "La Strada" (1954), and as the optimistic prostitute in "Nights of Cabiria" (1957). She was also superb as the bored Roman housewife whose escape to the world of fantasy is the subject of Fellini's "Juliet of the Spirits" (1965). Masina's last collaboration with Fellini came with the wistful "Ginger and Fred" (1986), whose initials also suggest "Giulietta and Federico," about a fictional dance team, who gained fame in Italy imitating Rogers and Astaire, reunited after many years.
