The first recipient of the Best Foreign Language Oscar was this, Federico Fellini’s beautiful, emotionally-harrowing art house smash, which tells the tale of a surly, drunken circus strongman (Anthony Quinn), the young assistant who he treats as chattel (Fellini’s wife, Giulietta Masina, radiating forbearing pathos), and the Fool who tries to offer her a better life (Richard Baseheart), only to risk his own.
