Marcello Mastroianni

Biography

Date of Birth 28 September 1924, Fontana Liri, Lazio, Italy Date of Death 19 December 1996, Paris, France (pancreatic cancer) Birth Name Marcello Vincenzo Domenico Mastrojanni Height 5' 9½" (1,77 m) Marcello Mastroianni was born in Fontana Liri, Italy on 28 September 1924, but soon 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. He debuted in films as an extra in Marionette (1939), then started working for the Italian department of "Eagle Lion Films" in Rome and joined a drama club, where he was discovered by director Luchino Visconti. In 1957 Visconti gave him the starring part in his Fyodor Dostoevsky adaptation Weiße Nächte (1957) and in 1958 he was fine as a little thief in Mario Monicelli's comedy Diebe haben's schwer (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 Das süße Leben (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 Achteinhalb (1963) (as a movie director who finds himself at a point of crisis) and the touching Ginger und Fred (1986) (as an old entertainer who appears in a TV show). He also appeared as a tired novelist with marital problems in Michelangelo Antonioni's Die Nacht (1961), as an impotent young man in Mauro Bolognini's Bel Antonio (1960) , as an exiled prince in John Boorman's Leo, der Letzte (1970), as a traitor in Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's Allonsanfàn (1974) and as a sensitive homosexual in love with a housewife in Ettore Scola's Una giornata particolare (1977). He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor three times, for Scheidung auf italienisch (1961), Una giornata particolare (1977), and Schwarze Augen (1987). During the last decade of his life he worked with directors, like Theodoros Angelopoulos, Bertrand Blier and Raoul Ruiz, who gave him three excellent parts in Drei Leben und ein Tod (1996). He died of pancreatic cancer on December 19, 1996. - IMDb Mini Biography By: Thanassis Agathos
