It is rumored that famed Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini had completed a draft of this screenplay and begun filming in fall of 1961. Directed by associate Robert Fones, the film was a blistering, passionate glimpse into the private hells of a wide cast of characters. Test screenings were overwhelmingly negative, causing the anguished Fellini to demand all copies of the film destroyed before they could reach the public. Over the course of two decades, at a budget of over $14,000, the AFI has painstakingly crafted together the film from the original negatives and pieced together the film as Fellini originally envisioned it. Presented here is the never-before-seen "La Dita Furioso" or "The Furious Fingers."
