Fatal Desire Reviews:

There have been numerous versions of the Giovanni Verga storyline and enjoy as well as the Pietro Mascagni opera based on the work. This movie is an amalgam of the opera and a straight dramatic version, with acceptable results. The well-known plot of Sicilian love, jealousy and revenge is directed here by Carmine Gallone, who specialized in, among another things, the transferring of operatic texts to the screen and movies about classical composers. Turiddu (Ettore Manni) has returned from military service, gotten his fiancée Santuzza pregnant, abandons her for Lola, the wife of the town's cart-driver and wine-hauler. Alfio challenges him to a duel and kills him… to the horror of the townspeople. Swedish actress May Britt as the wronged Santuzza looks angelic; Tunisian-born actress Kerima is perfect as the slatternly object of Turiddu's passion (that same year she was the 'she-wolf' in Lattuada's "La lupa.") But the strongest impression is made by Anthony Quinn as the avenging Alfio, suggesting in this early role some of the qualities that would create him popular in his soon performance as Zorba the Greek. He is dubbed in Italian, as he would be in Fellini's "La strada." The movie itself has been almost impossible to see , but can be glimpsed in its entirety on YouTube. Unfortunately the film , which was shot in Ferraniacolor (and 3-D!) , actually seems to exist only in black-and-white copies. In fact when it played the U.S. in 1963 as "Fatal Desire," dubbed in English, it was shown in black-and-white prints only. The advertisement read "There is a unique type of payment for 'borrowing' other man's wife." I remember a local drive-in program, with this at the bottom of a double bill with Elsa Martinelli in "Rice Girl", other Italian film, as the main feature. I'd love to see "Cavalleria Rusticana" restored and made accessible in better copies, but I'd like to see a lot of impossible things.


I watched a dreadful black and white print of this tiny known movie on an obscure satellite TV channel yet found it riveting and the final 10 mins unforgettable, made so by Anthony Quinn's performance.It is not a storyline of a revenge - told to be greatest enjoyed cold - but, at its end, a life or death war between two boys who were once mates over a woman. Not a tussle in hot blood. Not melodramatic but a grim ashen-faced older boy (Quinn), determined, for mixture of reasons-personal pride and honour as a husband, punishment for the younger man's betrayal and, finally, to eliminate a rival for his very desirable pretty young wife-to war to the death. The Quinn hero accepts his own death as a probability and calls briefly at the home of his aged mother to tell a final goodbye. The younger boy too, knows that he may die but he too feels aggrieved. Both trust death is a price worth paying. Neither wants to live after losing. For every it is life and the woman-or death. It is fully raw and elemental, and, it hardly needs adding, tragic.The film's original game "Cavalleria Rusticana" comes from a novel by Sicilian writer Giovanni Verga who specialised in "realist" stories set in rural Sicily. It was soon made into an opera parts of which accompany the realistically filmed action-something which works well.Rather more pertinently in terms of another roles, the pretty object of these two men's desire, the magnetic Algerian actress Kerima, played a very related role with Trevor Howard as the besotted male in "Outcast of the Islands" (1951). Most go through life never having even met allow alone been involved with a girl who can inspire such poor cravings and reckless jealousy, never imagining that extreme beauty may not be benign and pleasurable but risky and very possibly life-threatening. In "Lady from Shanghai" Rita Hayworth plays such a hero with Orson Wells as the worldly sailor who rebukes himself for not having recognised the danger signals.Where are they now? Kerima was the wife and is actually the widow (since April 2016) of famed British movie director, Guy Hamilton
