NOTE: The dates in the braces are the dates given in a government application as the first day of work. Many of these dates are obviously spurious, and, maddeningly, we don’t have a list of the final day of work. It appears that most of the crew members below were temps and floaters who worked only a few days or weeks and left long before the end of filming. Names in
large bold letters
are the names that appear on screen.
•Presented by [Robert Charles] Bob Guccione (b 17 Dec 1930, d 20 Oct 2010)
•Produced by
[Romano] Franco Rossellini (b 7 Nov 1935, d 3 Jun 1992) and

•Original Screenplay
[Eugene Luther] Gore Vidal (b 3 Oct 1925, d 31 Jul 2012)
credited in the Italian version as
“Tratto dal soggetto originale di GORE VIDAL
and in the English version as
“Adapted from an original screenplay by GORE VIDAL”
•Additional Dialogue and Rewrites Malcolm McDowell
Ted Whitehead
and an anonymous Italian writer
(Ideas for these extra lines were inspired in part by concepts from Roberto Rossellini’s treatments [1962 and 1971] for the unmade Caligola. Whether any ideas were taken from the now-lost 1965 script that Jean Gruault wrote for Roberto Rossellini is anybody’s guess.)
•Italian Dialogue (for the 1979 Italian Release) Adapted by [Tommaso] “Masolino” d’Amico

[There seems to have been some flexibility here, as Calì Said was definitely a cameraman rather than a mere focus puller. And as for cameramen Pino Di Biase and Federico Del Zoppo, I’m not sure how long they were involved. So people in this department definitely swapped positions, and Tinto Brass himself frequently operated one of the cameras, without credit, as he does on all his films.]
•Film Editors Tinto Brass [not completed; “Do your dance, boy” through the execution of Macro in the final release is, visually, largely Tinto’s, though terribly vandalized]

Transvestite in Suburra / Prostitute in Suburra Sidney Sheldon (b 11 Feb 1917, d 30 Jan 2007) [Sorry. My bad. The studio documentation was wrong. It said that Sidney Sheldon was photographed AS a transvestite and AS a prostitute. That was a woeful typographical error. He was photographed WITH a performer portraying a transvestite (Mario Tursi’s unit still #7789) and WITH a performer portraying a prostitute (#7790), neither of whom I can identify. How do I know this? I found the stills! Oops.]

JUNE 1987

Something amused me in 1980. It may have amused you, too. When journalists are under the gun with a deadline, they do hasty research, and the hastiness shows. That’s a professional risk — actually, it’s a professional inevitability. An editor at The New York Times assigned Tom Buckley to do a brief piece on the forthcoming Caligula. The editor recognized the principal names in the cast and crew, but he had never heard of the director before. Could Buckley learn something about this director? Now, in early 1980 that was not such an easy assignment, for it was next to impossible to find any reference to Tinto in any English-language journal, apart from the occasional passing reference to Salon Kitty that one could glean from Reader’s Guide. Nonetheless, Buckley did what he could, and I instantly recognized what he had done. He began his research by pulling up the 1980 International Motion Picture Almanac, edited by Richard Gertner, published by Quigley. Was Tinto mentioned? Yes, he was! The brief listing, though, was simply a list of Italian titles that were entirely unfamiliar. Apart from Caligula, there was only one title in English, namely Yankee. On a hunch, Buckley decided to look up Yankee in a respected book on westerns, and he lucked out. Then, in an index of film journals, he found that Variety had published a reference to Tinto’s most recent movie.

Behold the result:
