Skipping without paying rent


Met a tour guide on Stromboli. She showed us the house where Rosilini first fell in love with Bergman. This was the main location. After filming for three months she said that Rosilini skipped without paying the owners of the house rent. Is this true???

I've heard that before, but always just assumed it was an urban legend. Maybe he left them a cheque and it was burned by fire from the volcano. ;)

Paying rent for the director and other talent while on location -- isn't that the producer's job?
