Prince of Foxes
(1949, 107 minutes)
Director: Henry King
Based on the Samuel Shellabarger novel of the same title, this classic film stars Orson Welles as Cesare Borgia, the corrupt and power-hungry duke, who, with his sister, plots to expand his sphere of influence in Renaissance Italy. Borgia's scheme is complicated when his servant Andrea Zoppo (Tyrone Power), masquerading as a member of the noble Orsini family, ingratiates himself with the Count of Citta del Monte and falls in love with his wife (Wanda Hendrix). This screening coincides with the exhibition Rome After Raphael.
