Storyline

L'impero britannico ha deciso di accaparrarsi lo sfruttamento di tutto il petrolio che viene estratto dai giacimenti del Kuwait. Totò, un domestico, con alcuni stratagemmi riesce a farsi affidare dall'Intelligence Service la missione di sconfiggere la concorrenza degli altri paesi. Dopo una serie di comiche peripezie, riesce a sconfiggere gli agenti segreti avversari e a far interdire lo Sceicco El Buzur, proprietario dei pozzi petroliferi, dopo essersi fatto adottare dallo Sceicco stesso. Così Totò diventa padrone assoluto dei giacimenti e si trasferisce a Napoli, dove impianta una raffineria. Written by rosebud6

A very weak story with few worthy puns
12 August 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

besides absolute masterpieces, such as "I due Marescialli", unfortunately Toto was involved in a conspicuous series of B movies with a very weak and absurd plot. Toto' d'Arabia is not the worse of them, but honestly I have managed to watch it to the end only because I am a big fan of Toto. Toto perform at his best only in a Neapolitan context, where his mimics puns and gestures belong to his cultural background; his best partners are themselves Neapolitan or Roman, such as Peppino De Filippo and Aldo Fabrizi. In the middle of British Secret Services, or dubious Turks and Arabs, he is simply a freak, an oddity, unable to recite from his heart. Too bad that his wonderful talent has been too often squandered this way.
