That anatomical wonder, former "Miss Italy" Silvana Pampanini, stars in the "made for Mae West" role of Gobette, a turn-of-the-century Moulin Rouge entertainer charged with indecency. She wastes no time in seducing the investigating judge which compels his boss, the President of the Court, to have her deported. Incensed, Gobette slips into the President's apartment when his family's away intending to cause a scandal but before she can teach the uptight magistrate a lesson, his boss, the Minister of Justice, comes to stay the night and the President is forced to pass off Gobette as his wife. Later, after the President's asleep, she seduces the Minister and when he goes back to Paris the next day, he orders the President and his family transferred there so he can resume his affair with the man's wife, "la presidentessa". Uh oh...
Mistaken identities and risqué situations abound in director Germi's "French" sex farce and not only does the pulchritudinous Pampanini show a flair for comedy, she sings, dances (sort of), and can really fill a period costume -when she's wearing one, that is, since Silvana spends most of the time in either a peignoir or a bustier with frilly panties, stockings and garter belts. Both simple-minded and knowing, this one's good-natured fun with an emphasis on s-e-x.
