An ex-gangster retires to his native village in the Abruzzi mountains. He has kept some tapes which incriminate an American senator and his Mafia contacts. Various people try to get hold of the tapes - by fair means or foul.
Although this comedy is more Italian than German (it was directed by the Austrian comedyspecialist Franz Antel, here billed as Francois Legrand) the scenes were actually shot in Yugoslavia (look at the cars, you see Zastava, Yugo's national automobile). Caroll Baker plays the part of the nagging actress wonderful and Arthur Kennedy is great as an ex-gangster, who makes Baker his moll! Curd Jürgens has a small guestrole as the blackmailed American senator. Gag follows gag in this lovely AND funny seventies Euro-coproduction.
