A classic parody of gangster movies played by the most famous and beloved Italian musician and entertainer of his days, Fred Buscaglione, who brought easy listening jazz to Italian audience since the 50es, embodying in his songs (and his way of life too) the "tough guy" made famous by the hard boiled flicks of the 40es, that were so popular in Italy after World War II. The plot is rather simple. An FBI agent (Fred Buscaglione) infiltrates the gang of the drug-dealer Algerino (played by Totò, always a delight to see), who runs his criminal business in a night club. The G-man cover identity is Fred Bombardone, the leader of a jazz band made of police cops (all played by Fred's band "Asternovas" except the guitarist, the famous Italian comedian Paolo Panelli). The rest is typical of Fred's songs, night clubs full of smoke, gorgeous girls and good music. A must see for all Fred Buscaglione fans. Rated 7/10.
