Abridged Book Description

Fellini's sprawling film - the action ranges far and wide throughout the Roman world - was an immediate success with art-house audiences. Shocking scenes of debauchery, grotesquerie, and black comedy fully earned an R rating from the then recently installed rating system, taking advantage of the new freedom of expression offered with the demise of the Production Code.
