Storyline

Il mondo che ruota attorno alle corse dei cavalli ed in particolare alle scommesse è il protagonista del film; mondo rappresentato da Mandrake, Pomata e Felice. Il primo sempre sul punto di sposare Gabriella, il secondo in perenne fuga dai suoi creditori. Quelli che li accomuna è il fatto di perdere sempre e comunque. Poi un giorna Gabriella dà a Mandrake tre nomi di brocchi da giocare a una corsa tris. Mandrake si lascia convincere da Pomata a puntare invece su un vincente sicuro che naturalmente perde. Come perde Mandrake i venti milioni che avrebbe vinto giocando i nomi suggeriti da Gabriella. Guai in vista per tutti. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

the pinnacle of Italian comedy
5 January 2001 | by (London,UK) – See all my reviews

Febbre da cavallo is THE pinnacle of Italian comedy. Never before, nor after, there was a movie of such power . The casting, the storyboard, the masterful direction of that genius that was Steno, all make the movie a true milestone in the history of Italian comedies. A must-see for all the self respecting fan of Italian cinema.
