PEDDLIN' IN SOCIETY (the original title means "Down with Wealth!") is a tour-de-force for Anna Magnani as an erstwhile fruit vendor who finds herself in the lap of luxury when her black-market business pays off more handsomely. She leases an elegant villa from an impoverished count (the superb Vittorio De Sica), wears the most ridiculous hat ever seen in the Italian cinema, and finds out the hard way that instant wealth brings her neither class nor esteem but instead makes her easy prey for the unscrupulous. This thoroughly lightweight dramatic farce is a counterpoint to some of Magnani's much better films of that period: OPEN CITY, AMORE, and L'ONOREVOLE ANGELINA. Director Gennaro Righelli keeps it all going entertainingly. The film is a follow-up to ABBASSO LA MISERIA ("Down with Misery") which he had made with Magnani the year before.
