Storyline

When a deported gangster dies in Italy, the U.S. treasury dept. is very interested in the $1,000,000.00 Madigan owed the government, but managed to take to Italy with him. They send agent Jason Phister over to Italy to nose out the million. His criteria for the job is that no one would ever guess he's an agent of the United States government. Written by April M.

Why doesn't Dustin Hoffman do more comedy?
9 January 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so "Un dollaro per 7 vigliacchi" (aka "Madigan's Millions") is pretty much all low humor, with a pre-"Graduate" Dustin Hoffman as a witless government agent sent to Italy to find the million dollars that a murdered gangster (Cesar Romero) kept hidden. Still, the movie elicits a certain charm, as he irks the police, leaves a lawyer in an embarrassing position, and causes a wacky chase through Rome. If absolutely nothing else, it's neat to see Dustin Hoffman in an early role. Personally, I wish that he would do more comedy (think "Tootsie" and "Meet the Fockers").

So, it's worth seeing if only for that. And because Elsa Martinelli was really hot!
