Try to imagine a comic farce co-scripted by one of the founding fathers of Italian neo-realism, Cesare Zavattini, and a wisecracking Jewish playwright, Neil Simon. Pretty funny, yes? No! Ill-fated international co-production isn't in it: we are talking turkey here as master criminal The Fox (Sellers) escapes from jail into streets full of excitable Italians, executes a gold bullion robbery and saves his sister's honour. Marginally enlivened by Mature's witty self-mockery as a beefcake movie star fretting over his fading charms.
