Award-winning film about the legendary waif from the streets of Mobile Alabama who was at the center of the American expatriate community in Paris and Rome after World War II, acting in the films of Federico Fellini and other Italian directors during the golden age of Italian cinema, later taken in by his fellow Mobilians, some proud, others dubious of his accomplishments. Gore Vidal called him the flip side of Truman Capote, Eugene's childhood friend; he lied about himself, but only to entertain.
