macistinfern14300The devil takes Maciste the Strongman down to hell in an attempt to corrupt and ruin his morality. Maciste was the hero of 13 early Italian films. This was the last made in the silent era, and is the most famous. “I’m sure that I remember it well because the image has remained so deeply impressed that I have tried to re-evoke it in all my films. I saw it standing with my father’s arms around me amidst a crowd of people in wet overcoats because it was raining outside” – Federico Fellini.

Presented by Edward Hopper House Art Center and Rivertown Film in the backyard garden of the Hopper House, 82 North Broadway in Nyack, at dusk.
