Aaah! Someone has a go at 8. ! No, but nice stab. This is my favourite of the ten, so I'm leaving it up for a wee bit longer.

Oh, and yes, you're right BiNS...it was used in an Italian comedy called Fortunella from the 1950s.

This rings a bell, is it something like he took weeks shooting a ridiculous amount of takes and ended up using the first one?

Oooh, that's quite close, actually.

They used the first rehearsal rough-cut. Some of it is even out of focus. Apparently, during the official attempts, Sinatra just couldn't replicate his performance so the director was forced to use the practice session. The critics assumed that the distorted POV was intentional.
