A motley quintet of inept small-time thieves attempt the burglary of a local pawnshop in this Italian farce.
When Mario (Renato Salvatori) is working at the movie theater, and is confronted by Ferriboti, (Tiberio Murgia,) in the background of the scene hangs a poster for the film "Kean; Genius or Scoundrel", which stars, was co-written, and directed, by Vittorio Gassman, one of the leads in "Big Deal On Madonna Street". It was the movie he did immediately prior to this one.
May your father and mother drop dead if you have a cigarette and aren't sharing.
Cosimo: All orphans here, I see.
The thieves should know enough to wear gloves to hide their fingerprints. However, the main comedic beat of the movie is how the band is composed of incompetent thieves who are way over their heads, except for veteran Dante Cruciani who doesn't take part in the actual robbery.
