THE BIG DEAL ON MADONNA STREET

(Italian, 1956, 90 minutes, b&w, video)
This takeoff on classic caper films centers on the attempts of a clumsy small-time thief to organize his fellow crooks and rob a jewelry store. The actual heist turns into a hilariously inept and comical mess, featuring the talents of Vittorio Gassman, one of Italy's most beloved comics.
