Movies: "Mondo Cane"

June 23, 1962 - “Mondo Cane,” a feature-length documentary filmed in color by a variety of photographers in various parts of the world for Italian director Gualtiero Jacopetti, has been acquired for distribution by the Times Film Corporation. It is slated for release here this winter. The original title, which could loosely be translated as “World Gone to the Dogs,” will be retained. A report from the Cannes Festival, where the film generated much discussion, called “Mondo Cane” a “bitter, often shocking glimpse of sadistic rituals in the world in which we live.”
