Someone PLEASE PLEASE tell me where I can obtain a copy of this Ugo Tognazzi vehicle from 1962, which also starred the luscious Catherine Spaak. One of many of early 60s Italian comedies that explored the bittersweet longings of aging adults amongst youth culture, CRAZY DESIRE or THIS MAD URGE boasted Ennio Morricone's first score and some haunting pop songs of the period, plus a lot of good looking Italian youth in beachwear. Most poignant, though, was the aging but dapper Tognazzi in his sports car, clinging wistfully to his younger self. This film is burned in memory now for 30 years as I, myself, approach that turning point. See it with someone you're growing older with.(Here)

Crazy Desire (La Voglia Matta) stars Ugo Tognazzi as a middle-aged Italian businessman on a cross country motor trip. He comes across a group of rambunctious teenagers, including sexy Catherine Spaak.... read more Infatuated by the girl, Tognazzi allows Spaak to deplete his pocketbook to pay for a wild seaside spree for herself and her friends. When challenged to a fight by the leader of the kids, Tognazzi, much to his own surprise, wins, and is hailed as "one of the gang." But when he wakes up on the beach the next morning, he's all alone. Alternately wacky and wistful, Crazy Desire was the film that secured the international reputation of Italian director Luciano Salce. From the opening sequence during a amateurish outdoor production of Julius Caesar to the closing seascape shot of the solitary and bemused Ugo Tognazzi, there's hardly a false move in the picture. Crazy Desire was based on Enrico Siella's short story A Girl Named Francesca.(Here)

"Ugo Tognazzi, at the beginning of his international popularity, offers a rich characterization of the figure that was to become identified with him: the middle-aged man going through varieties of identity and sexual crises. The director, Luciano Salce, devises a perverse series of 'rites of passage' for Tognazzi. The forty-year-old hero must prove his youth to a band of teenagers with whom he accidentally becomes involved. He has a particular infatuation, 'a crazy desire,' for Francesca, a post-Lolita type played by Catherine Spaak with seductive amorality. Though in a much lighter key, their relationship is reminiscent of that of Dietrich and Jannings in The Blue Angel. Salce uses this confrontation between youth and middle age to comment on two spoiled generations of the sixties." Charles Affron

? Directed by Luciano Salce. Written by Salce, Franco Castellano, Pipolo (Giuseppe Moccia), based on the short story "A Girl Named Francesca" by Enrico Stella. Photographed by Enrico Menzger. With Ugo Tognazzi, Catherine Spaak, Gianni Garko. (1962, 109 mins, In Italian with English titles, 35mm)(Here)

Youth gang start to play tower game,
A boy says:(01:01'13") "And the other 250 million Chinese people? Are they as beautiful as you? Because, if they are,we're all leaving for China". But Chinese population is about 650 million in 1960, and it has been 250 million in about 1770! (See belw list).I don't now why it is? Or is a mistake of the writer or director, or is that the derictor intends to reflect the ignorance of Western (or Western Youth) to China?

The relative China's film composed by Ennio Morricone are not much. We only has known 4 films up to now, they are "The Hawks And The Sparrows"(1965),"Once upon a time in revolution" (1971)(Only used MAO's quotation) and "China Is Near"(1967) and "Marco Polo"(1982). The film is a new discovery. It is very important for Chinese Fans

003-About the director Luciano Salce
 

uciano Salce (Roma, 25 settembre 1923 – Roma, 17 dicembre 1989) è stato un regista e attore italiano. Dopo aver lasciato la facoltà di giurisprudenza poco prima della laurea, si iscrisse all'accademia di arte drammatica dove si diplomò. Cominciò la sua attività artistica nel campo del teatro, in Italia e in Francia, recitando assieme a Vittorio Caprioli e Franca Valeri nel Teatro dei Gobbi, rilevando il posto di Alberto Bonucci....(See here and 01, 02, 03, 04, 05)

the director Luciano Salce
Born: September 25, 1922 in Rome, Italy Occupation: Actor, Director, Screenwriter Biography:Italian director Luciano Salce did his first post-college work helming stage plays, then moved to Brazil in 1950 to function as artistic director of Teatro Brasiliero de Comedia. Salce acted in a handful Brazilian films before returning to Italy to work in radio and television. His first film directorial credit was Le Pillole di Ecole (1960), after which he filled the triple-threat capacity as actor/writer/director for The Fascist (1961). Some of Scale's best film work in the '60s could be found in multi-storied pictures wherein each episode was handled by a different director, e.g. Kiss the Other Sheik (1965) and The Queens (1966). The director was particularly fond of light, location-shot comedies about the clash of old and new values, notably the Ugo Tognazzi vehicle Crazy Desire (1961) (please avoid the crudely English-dubbed version of this one). Virtually unknown in America, Luciano Salce is frequently represented on US television by one of his most conventional pictures, a harmless 1963 confection starring Sylvia Koscina and Catherine Spaak titled The Little Nuns.(See here)

004-Major stars
 
004-1 Ugo Tognazzi
Tognazzi was born in Cremona, in northern Italy but spent his youth in various localities as his father was a traveller clerk for an insurance company.

After his return in the native city in 1936, he worked in a salami production plant. In World War II, he was called to the Army, returning home after the Armistice of September 1943. His passion for spectacles and acting dates from his early years, and also during the conflict he had organized spectacles for his fellow soldiers. In 1945 he moved to Milan, where he was enrolled in the theatrical company led by Wanda Osiris. A few years later he formed his own successful musical revue company.

In 1950 Tognazzi made his debut for cinema, in I cadetti di Guascogna directed by Mario Mattoli. In the following year he met Raimondo Vianello, with whom he formed a successful comical duo for the new-born RAI TV (1954–1960). Their shows, sometimes containing satirical aspects, were also among the first ones to be censored in Italian television.

After the successful role in The Fascist (Il Federale) (1961), directed by Luciano Salce, Tognazzi became one of the most renowned characters of the so-called Commedia all'Italiana (Italian comedy style). He worked with all the main directors of Italian cinema, including Mario Monicelli (Amici miei), Marco Ferreri (La grande abbuffata), Nanni Loy, Dino Risi, Pier Paolo Pasolini (Pigsty), Ettore Scola, Alberto Lattuada, Pupi Avati and others. Tognazzi also directed some of his films, including the 1967 film Il fischio al naso. The film was entered into the 17th Berlin International Film Festival.[1]

He was a famous actor in Italy, and starred in some important international films, which brought him fame.

Roger Vadim cast Ugo Tognazzi as Mark Hand, the Catchman, in 1968's Barbarella. He rescues Barbarella (Jane Fonda) from the biting dolls she encounters, and after her rescue, he requests payment by asking her to make love with him (the "old-fashioned" way, not the psycho-cardiopathic way of their future).

In 1981 he won the Best Male Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival for La tragedia di un uomo ridicolo, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. While he worked primarily in Italian cinema, Tognazzi is perhaps best remembered for his role as Renato Baldi, the gay owner of a St. Tropez nightclub, in the 1978 French comedy La Cage aux Folles which became the highest grossing foreign film ever released in the U.S." (See 01,02, 03, 04,05)

004-2 Catherine Spaak
Catherine Spaak (born 3 April 1945) is a French actress and singer.

[edit] BiographySpaak was born at Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine (Ile-de-France).

She spent most of her career in Italy, where she became a teenage star. From age 15 to 18, Catherine Spaak was the lead actress in at least twelve movies and, as a singer, was regarded by some as the Italian equivalent of French chanteuse Francoise Hardy, some of whose songs she recorded in 1963. Notable appearances include classic Italian movies such as I dolci inganni (1960), La voglia matta (1961), The Easy Life (1962), The Girl from Parma (1963), The Empty Canvas (1963), L'armata Brancaleone (1965), Hotel (1967) with Rod Taylor, The Libertine (1969), and The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971). She starred in Take a Hard Ride with Jim Brown (1975). She later hosted several TV shows for RAI TV, and published some books in Italian.
