The 1952 directorial debut of Italian legend Federico Fellini featuring his future wife, Giulietta Masina.

The White Sheik tells the story of a newlywed couple’s honeymoon that turns into disaster when the virginal bride runs away in search of the eponymous hero, a soap-opera actor who fulfils her naïve romantic ideals.

A light hearted, timeless comedy, and satire on glamour and illusion, The White Sheik is one of Fellini’s most accessible films, yet contains hints of the surrealist elements he was to develop in his later work.

  • Fellini's The White Sheik and Other Stories - 16 minute featurette compiled of Interviews with Fellini experts Peter Bondanella and Charlotte Chandler discussing The White Sheik and other Fellini classics
