Love and larceny ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1963 in Italian and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A comedy focusing on Girardo, an Italian con man and his efforts to leave behind a life of crime. In a series of flashbacks we follow Girardo through five scenarios in which he separates gullible Italians from their hard earned cash. Girardo learned his skills on the stage where he was a bit player, before moving to more lucrative employment. In one scheme he impersonates an Italian police officer, handing out fake fines in order finance his lifestyle. From there he graduates to impersonating a general, Santa Claus and Greta Garbo. Director Dino Risi's satires focusing on the newfound prosperity of his countrymen during the Italian "economic miracle" of the 1950s and '60s established a new style that became known as commedia all'italiana
