Description

"Liberally adapted" from Poe's 'Don't Wager Your Head to the Devil', Federico Fellini's Toby Dammit was shot in twenty-six days over the winter of 1967-68, at the experimental film centre near Cinecetta in Rome. It is an extraordinary piece of genuine film psychedelia, and rightly regarded to be amongst the director's finest work. Dammit reveals that he haunted this personal apparition of the devil; a little blonde girl in a white dress playing with a ball. He moves on to the Lupa d'oro Awards ceremony, where he is hailed as a great Shakespearian actor. Very drunk, he responds by reading a passage from Macbeth, before lashing out verbally at the partygoers. Delirious, he races from the nightcub and leaps into his Ferrari, speeding off into the night through the foggy streets of Rome and into the surrounding countryside. Lost, he arrives at a collapsed bridge. The little girl seems to be beckoning him from the other side of the chasm. Gunning the engine madly, he attempts to leap his car across the gap, unaware of a steel cable stretched across the road before him. He is neatly decapitated. The child runs to play with the head as if it where her ball. Nino Rota's labyrinthine music is complimented here by Ray Charles performing 'Ruby (It's You)' which is used eloquently in a scene at the awards ceremony.
