Trivia

Valeria Moriconi (Pupella) stated in an interview that the spaghetti scene was improvised as they had only rehearsed approaching the spaghetti and no more. Furthermore, Toto inadvertently put into his pocket a "spiral" (a hot smoking device placed in the food to make it look piping hot) and the scene had to be stopped as his jacket caught fire.

Never be sure like i am now to give the vote to a fiction or to a someoneelse, no doubt 10!. Now i will try to persuade the many that haven't still seen this fiction to do it. This is an ironic fiction that talk about the life in two different and opposite way:misery and nobility. The comic verve of Totò, i think the best Italian actor of ever, make this comedy one of the best work of ever. Every time i see it i smile and laugh but i reflect also about the magnificent message that is mixed on the jokes... the worlds can be never enough my opinion should be like an advice to see it. a masterpiece. P.S. excuse me for the bad English i will try to advice
