Marcello Mastroianni 1924 - 1996
Mastroianni became internationally famous from starring in the Fellini film La Dolce Vita (1960) about a jaded tabloid reporter who wants to get away from Rome and work on the novel he claims is his true calling, but he is unable to break free from the decadent lifestyle and superficiality of the world of celebrity.
Mastroianni made many other films, and holds the record for the most Oscar nominations for a non-American actor, for: Divorzio aal'italiano (1963), A Special Day (1977), and Dark Eyes (1987).
