Tuesday, January 20, is Fellini’s birth date. At our house here in Fort Worth, Texas, we have a tradition of inviting friends over for a celebration on or around this date. Italian snacks are served, the walls are covered with posters, lots of vino is available and a film showing. We always invite invite some younger folks and turn them on to the Maestro’s magic.
Last Saturday night was no exception. I chose ROMA this year not only because it’s a crowd pleaser, but because Frank Burke told me in Seattle that it was his favorite Fellini film. I also screened the Fellini TV commercials for my enthusiastic crowd. A grand time was had by all.
