One of greatest neglected film comedies.
6 September 2000 | by (Ann Arbor, Michigan) – See all my reviews

One of the great neglected comedies of all time. Needs to be placed on video and also shown at film festivals. It is a hilarious satire of 1960s USA, as the Italian hero travels to the main regions of USA seeking a wife. Polidoro captures the absurdity of each region, the customs, mores and styles of the time and place.
