Found the :16 video clip of this many months ago, but this is even better--it shows much of the interview featuring Marilyn Monroe and Anna Magnani; they both come in at 2:31....Anna Magnani is very funny holding the cigarette; Marilyn Monroe is just hilarious:

Love Anna Magnani with Marlon Brando in The Fugitive Kind; Magnani is also good with Burt Lancaster in The Rose Tattoo (although Lancaster's role is a bit buffoonish. 'The Swimmer' with Lancaster is a great film too. Funny scene where he is in a nudest camp, talking to another couple then walks away, the camera showing him bare butt naked. It's a good film because it shows his character in a realistic way, particularly the closing scene when he is climbing that rock face and can't quite make it up--he's having a nervous breakdown. Overcome with weakness. And then the final scene when he breaks down crying. Loved that film. Read Lancaster believed in it so much he paid for much of the production.

Rather, he almost doesn't make it up that rock face--he has a moment where he's overcome with weakness, but regains his composure and makes it up. Only to make it to outside the house where he breaks down completely.

Anna Magnani was on 'What's My Line?' preceding a film release:

Burt Lancaster had an insightful quote about Magnani (it appears on her Wiki page):

Lancaster:... "if she had not found acting as an outlet for her enormous vitality, she would have become 'a great criminal'".[14]
