Plot.

Mario Costa directed the film based on Ruggero Leoncavallo's opera. The film stars two people. The tragedy of Canio, the lead clown in a commedia dell'arte troupe, his wife Nedda, and her lover, is recounted. Canio was told about Nedda's betrayal when she spurns the advances of Tonio. Nedda and Silvio were murdered by Canio in a jealous rage. The film is very faithful to its source material, presenting the opera nearly complete, despite the fact that the only actor in the cast who also sang his role was the celebrated Italian baritone, Tito Gobbi.

This Movie Is About.

Wiki.

Love of a Clown, or Pagliacci, is a 1948 Italian film based on Ruggero Leoncavallo's opera Pagliacci, directed by Mario Costa. The film stars Tito Gobbi and Gina Lollobrigida. It recounts the tragedy of Canio, the lead clown (or pagliaccio in Italian) in a commedia dell'arte troupe, his wife Nedda, and her lover, Silvio. When Nedda spurns the advances of Tonio, another player in the troupe, he tells Canio about Nedda's betrayal. In a jealous rage Canio murders both Nedda and Silvio. The only actor in the cast who also sang his role was the celebrated Italian baritone, Tito Gobbi, but the film is largely very faithful to its source material, presenting the opera nearly complete.The film premiered on 16 April 1950 in the USA. It is notable for having been filmed largely in outdoor settings, much like a big-budgeted film version of a Broadway musical.
