It's a real potboiler by the long-lasting director-writer, Carmine Gallone. He was born in 1885 and by the turn of the century was writing plays. He directed his first feature movie in 1913, and by the time he retired in 1962, had directed well over a hundred of them. His specialty was biographies of composers and costume dramas, but had a wide range which included a couple of the Don Camillio comedies starring Fernandel. He died in 1973.
