Toby Dammit (from "Histoires extraordinaires") (1968)

Terence Stamp is extremely attractive and enigmatic in "Toby Dammit". He is decadent as a character in the Oscar Wilde novel.

Among the three stories, I liked this Fellini one the best. Fellini has a magical power to invite the viewers to a "travel" in a dream of illusion. The airport scenes at the beginning of the story are extraordinary.

This segment (and other two ones by Vadim and Malle) features a story of Edgar Allan Poe and the blond/long haired Terence Stamp in "Toby Dammit" reminds of Poe. Toby Dammit is an alcoholic "formerly-known-well" actor. Stamp is too real. He IS like a real alcoholic.

In fact, Terence Stamp hasn't been changed at all. The way Toby Dammit rushed to Ferrari is exactly the same as that of Wilson who stood up immediately after having been beaten up and went to the warehouse to kill all in "The Limey".  I like the way he walks, with his shoulders angled. Stamp has been divine and he will be divine forever.

Fellini one is the scariest. It's a must-see.
