La Signora Senza Camelie (English "The Lady Without Camelias") is a 1953 drama by Michelangelo Antonioni featuring Lucia Bosè in the main role of Clara Manni, an aspiring actress.
- Historical Domain Character: Clara plays Joan of Arc in the new version of her life. The film proves a failure.
- Italian Neorealism: Only as a secondary influence here. Can be considered a film from the pink Neorealism stage from the early 50's.
- Hotter and Sexier: That's how the producer decides to change the mood of the film in-universe after the screen tests show that the public are more attracted to the main character played by Clara than to everything else.
- Shout-Out: To La Dame aux Camélias ("The Lady of the Camellias") by Alexandre Dumas, fils.
