Ginger and Fred

Synopsis: Amelia and Pippo are reunited after several decades to perform their old music-hall act (imitating Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers) on a TV variety show.

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Director(s): Federico Fellini
Production: MGM Home Entertainment
  Nominated for 1 Golden Globe. Another 18 wins & 17 nominations.

It's a wonderful day, isn't it?

Well, it's Rome!

Maybe not so good today.

the admiral is on board.

Mister admiral, just one question.

Could you imagine you'd become a hero?

In case you change your mind, I'm here!

Mister admiral, these ladies

and these men are all artists.

I know, I love artists.

They're humanity's benefactors.

Yes, I love you.

Now forgive me,

I have to rest for a while.

My God, aren't you feeling well?

Be careful, it's wet.

- Lean on me.

- Where's my yogurth?


you have to take the drops before.

I want an answer.

- I want my yogurth.

- It's in my bag, I'll get it now.


what will you do in our show?

- He'll be with you.

- With us? We'll be dancing!

but, is that a player too?

Here's red riding hood!

and what about these ones?

Salvatore, here's two more.

Here we are.

The admiral and Ginger.

Let him sit here.

You'll see, tonight

they're not so bitter.

A glass of water, plese.


It's not them, They'll come later.

- Please, not frozen.

- We're in Hotel Manager.


I'll close your nose.

Come on, or the lady's going to be upset.

Upset with me!

So many questions!

I signed everything. Maybe Fiorenzo

will bring someone else.

- Hi, Salvatore.

- Miss...

- Are you Adelina Pollini?

- Yes, it's me.

- What should I do?

- Whatever you want.

You can go to your room,

That one is the dining room.

Don't worry,

Fiorenzo will take care of it.

- Who's Fiorenzo?

- The director's assistant.

Mister Botticella, where is he?

Is he here?

Room 306.

- Has Mister Botticella arrived?

- Has Botticella arrived?

- You're suffering, yes?

- I'm dying!


No, he's not here yet.

Then, as soon as he arrives,

tell him to call me at 306.

I'm Mrs Bonetti.

In a career spanning almost fifty years, Fellini won the Palme d'Or for La Dolce Vita, was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, and directed four motion pictures that won Oscars in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. In 1993, he was awarded an honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement at the 65th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles.Besides La Dolce Vita and 8½, his other well-known films include La Strada, Nights of Cabiria, Juliet of the Spirits, Satyricon, Amarcord and Fellini's Casanova. more…
