Accattone I'll Never Be

Accattone Sweater Action

I've watched Pier Paolo Pasolini's first feature film Accattone many times and I've always been particularly struck by the 1960s Roman street fashion of the male characters. It's rather smart.

In the film clip below you will see a nice white v-neck sweater at 1' 28''; and at 1' 40'' in you see a John Smedley style collared-shirt style sweater.
Good (yet troubled)
This is a wonderful, atmospheric film. The actor Franco Citti looks good (yet troubled) throughout, furnishing the lead character — an aimless drifter in the poverty-stricken slums of post-war Rome —  with a misplaced pride that fits the role perfectly.
