Venice, July 15 - Italian 1960s bombshell Claudia
Cardinale will be in attendance at this summer's Venice Film
Festival to celebrate the restored version of a Luchino Visconti
classic.
Released as 'Sandra (Of a Thousand Delights)' in the United
States and 'Of These Thousand Pleasures' in Britain, 1965's
'Vaghe Stelle dell'Orsa' starred Cardinale as a Holocaust
survivor in the retelling of the incestuous Electra myth set in
postwar Italy which won the event's top Golden Lion prize.
A screening of the film, which was re-mastered by Sony
Pictures Entertainment, will be part of the festival's 'Venezia
Classici' section, now in its second year, devoted to newly
restored films and documentaries.
Opening the section is the 1977 'Sorcerer' by William
Friedkin, winner of a Golden Lion for lifetime achievement.
For the first time, the Venezia Classici jury will be
composed of Italian university film students.
The world's oldest film festival, now in its 70th year,
runs August 28-September 7.
Born in Tunis, Cardinale's work has spanned Mario
Monicelli's I Soliti Ignoti (Big Deal on Madonna Street,
1958) Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers (1960) and The
Leopard (1963), Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 (1963), The Pink
Panther (1963), Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time in the West
(1968) and Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo (1982).
Cardinale, who won an honorary Golden Lion in Venice in
1983, is still going strong with the Italian film "The Silent
Mountain" in post-production.
