GIULIETTA MASINA

Vintage glossy 8×10 black and white chest-up lobby still portrait from Juliet of the Spirits (1965), boldly signed and inscribed in black felt tip ink, “A Walter Thomas con/simpatia/Giulietta/Masina.”  Very good condition, with noticeable border creasing and scattered mild handling bends and wrinkles within the image, one on her right cheek, very slightly detracting from overall appearance.  The wife and muse of director Federico Fellini starred in his film classics La Strada (1954), Il Bidone (1955), and Nights of Cabiria (1957).  Signed photographs in 8×10 format are surprisingly scarce.
