Storyline

La Costa Azzurra è flagellata dal fenomeno criminale Dorellik con la sua risata satanica e la polizia francese chiama in aiuto Scotland Yard nella persona del commissario Green. Dorellik è però finanziariamente in cattive acque, tanto che è abbandonato dalla segretaria. Cerca allora lavoro con un annuncio su un giornale e lo trova: viene incaricato da Rafael Dupont di uccidere tutti gli altri Dupont di Francia in modo da risultare l'unico erede di un miliardario brasiliano. Dorellik inizia la sua opera a cui affianca il tentativo di riconquista della segretaria. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

The funniest movie ever made!
15 May 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie is so funny that certain scene made me laugh so hard I cried. This is a spoof off from year before "Danger: Diabolik" with also starred Terry-Thomas. The plot has comedian Johnny Dorelli as a phantom hitman who is in need of work so he hired to kill all 400 people who is next to inherit a fortune. Lots of funny gags that makes this film a classic. The U.S. video print is missing several scenes though.
