Synopsis

The Empty Canvas wwwgstaticcomtvthumbmovieposters6383p6383p

Mediocre artist Dino is obsessed with young model Cecilia and distraught that she shares her sexual favors not only with him, but with actor Luciani as well. In an effort to derail her plan to vacation in Capri with his rival, Dino proposes marriage, and when she rejects his offer, he invites Cecilia to join him at the Rome estate of his domineering mother, a wealthy American, in the hope that he can seduce her with his glamorous lifestyle. Despairing that he will never have a monogamous relationship with her, he crashes his sportscar into a wall. While recovering in the hospital, he realizes his feelings will never be reciprocated. When Cecilia returns from her trip assuming their liaison will continue, Dino announces that the affair is over.

    In his review in the New York Times, Howard Thompson observed, "under Damiano Damiani's studied direction, the incidents move in stilted, crabwise fashion... Miss Davis... is truly a sight, looking like a Pekingese under a blonde bob and growling an atrocious Southern accent... At times, especially under-scored by Miss Davis's withering expression and lava lingo, the picture's overripe sexuality is downright funny."

    Time magazine said it "is one of those "international" movie projects that appears to have been dreamed up by its principals... in a spirit of reckless unity... It is chiefly notable for the fun of watching Davis breast the New Wave plot with bitchy authority... Stretched too far to be believable, Canvas is the kind of overdrawn foolishness that frequently proves diverting."
