This is a madcap Italian slapstick comedy of the type Roberto Benigni has made world-famous in recent years. I caught this in the mid-Sixties on a Chicago TV late-show feature, back when they still took a chance on obscure films and before they decided "Three's Company" reruns were more to their likings. It's immensely creative and weirdly, surrealistically funny, moreso than the premise might seem. It could have been just another fish-out-of-water plot, but the script and principals keep the audience guessing throughout. The numerous bit players have their day in the Roman sun with wacky blackout-type bits. Very entertaining, and I wish the film was better-known. Recommended.
