David Bailey (b. 1938)
Visconti (1972)
David Bailey interviews Italian film director Luchino Visconti whose works include Death In Venice, The Damned and The Leopard. Recorded in Bavaria whilst Visconti was on location making the film 'Ludwig', the director is refreshingly straightforward and matter-of-fact when asked about his influence on Italian neo-realist cinema and the prevalence of homosexuality in his work. Bailey also talks to the actors Helmut Berger and Romy Schneider, as they film Ludwig.
