"The White Sheik" is about a young couple on their honeymoon. Ivan and Wanda Cavalli go to Rome, so she can meet his family, but, what Ivan doesn't know is, she secretly wants to meet "The White Sheik" (Alberto Sordi), a comic book character! Wanda (Brunella Bovo) sneaks out of their room to go find "The Sheik". And Ivan (Leopoldo Trieste) is stuck trying to figure out a good excuse as to why his bride can't see his family. For a foreign movie, and for a film made by Fellini, this is actually quite funny. Their are nice performances by the characters, and good directing by Fellini. This would make a nice start in your collection of Fellini's films.
The script was done by four people, including Fellini, but, also fammed Italian director Michelango Antonioni co-wrote this script as well! And anyone familiar with him will find this to be a shock. Also Giulietta Masina (Fellini's wife) is in this movie as well. She plays a character named Cabiria. Fellini would later make a movie around this character in his masterpiece "Nights of Cabiria".
