Io sono Tony Scott, ovvero come l'Italia fece fuori il più grande clarinettista del jazz (English: I am Tony Scott. The Story of How Italy Got Rid of the Greatest Jazz Clarinetist) is a 2012 Italian documentary directed by Franco Maresco.

It is a documentary film about the life of the Italian-American jazz musician Anthony Joseph Sciacca, known to the public as Tony Scott, starting from his childhood and youth in the USA, until his death, following a long illness, in Rome in 2007.

In the film, a great number of American and Italian musicians are interviewed, such as the legend of clarinet Buddy DeFranco, pianist Mario Rusca and drummer Tony Arco and, also, a few non-musician friends of Scott’s. Moreover, Scott’s three wives and the two daughters from his second marriage provided many details about Tony Scott's life and, also, about their own feelings.

The documentary was shown at the 63rd Locarno International Film Festival (as a non-competing film) and at the Vancouver International Film Festival in 2010.

Synopsis

Io sono Tony Scott, ovvero come l'Italia fece fuori il più grande clarinettista del jazz narrates in detail the private and artistic life of Tony Scott, who reportedly regarded himself as “the number one clarinetist in the world”. Through clips, pictures and interviews with people who knew Scott, this documentary film goes over the astonishing story of the life of Tony, who was a very popular clarinetist in the 1950s, but later encountered tremendous personal and professional decline, after relocating to Italy in the seventies.

Le film évoque la carrière du duo comique sicilien qui compta parmi les plus célèbres des acteurs dans leur pays, Franco Franchi et Ciccio Ingrassia ; en utilisant des archives de leur répertoire et des témoignages originaux — par-dessus tout, ceux de la famille et des amis des réalisateurs — il imprime en quelque sorte à la pellicule son propre et authentique récit cinématographique.

In the immediate post-war Sicily the La Marca brothers, owners of a sacred craft company, set up, with the consent of the Archbishop of Palermo Cardinal Sucato, the Trinacria House of Film Production, which they intend it should be the "beginning of a Sicilian Hollywood". The first films, played by non-professional actors, badly rehearsed and directed, are commercial disasters, and so to revive the fortunes of the company they have the idea to make a film about the life of Cagliostro, engaging Errol Douglas, an alcoholic Hollywood star whose career is going into sharp decline, in the title role.
