Recognized as a master of Italian and world cinema, Vittorio De Sica is considered one of the major proponents of neorealism, an Italian movement that forever altered the content and style of the cinema worldwide. This work covers De Sica's entire career as a stage and screen actor, director, and screenwriter. Vittorio De Sica: Actor, Director, Auteur begins with a chronology of this great artist's life and work. A lengthy essay then discusses his biographical and career information in detail, with special attention given to the years following the war when De Sica directed Shoeshine, Bicycle Thieves, Miracle in Milan, and Umberto D--the films that made him famous. Succeeding sections offer stage acting credits, screen acting credits, a filmography of De Sica's directorial work, selected credits related to De Sica's neorealist films, and a filmography of De Sica's work as a screenwriter, as well as a series of still images from his cinematic oeuvre. Two interviews with the master and a statement by De Sica himself provide additional insights. A bibliography of works by and about De Sica in the English language concludes the book, followed by a comprehensive index.
