Storyline

Angelo Musco leaves his small town in Sicily to go to Rome for an operation. Once there, he decides he likes that continental air and proceeds to acquire a veneer of same...and also acquires a dancer, sporting-and-claiming an even-larger dose of Continental Veneer. They return together to Sicily with Musco under the impression she comes from the continent. Leda's clothes, manners, habits and flirting ways start a small revelation-style revolution, which is not to Musco's liking. He ships Leda back to Rome, but not before learning that he has been taken in by a Scilian native, as Leda was born in a near-by town. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Farm boy gets taken by big-city woman.

Angelo Musco (first billed) leaves his small town in Sicily to go to Rome for an operation. Once there, he decides he likes that continental air and proceeds to acquire a veneer of same...and also acquires a dancer, (the 2nd-billed Lida Gloria), sporting-and-claiming an even-larger dose of Continental Veneer.

They return together to Sicily with Musco under the impression she comes from the continent. Leda's clothes, manners, habits and flirting ways start a small revelation-style revolution, which is not to Musco's liking.

He ships Leda back to Rome, but not before learning that he has been taken in by a Scilian native, as Leda was born in a near-by town.

First US showing was at NYC's Cinecitta Theatre, in November of 1939, with Italian dialogue and no English titles. Film Daily called it a slightly naughty and very amusing comedy.
