Fiasco in Milan
Cast & Crew
A gang of petty thieves led by Peppe are recruited by a Milanese bandit to rob a suitcase filled with L90,000,000 from a soccer pool. The accountant in charge of the receipts, having fallen in love with Floriana, the Milanese's stripteaser girl friend, willingly agrees to hand over the suitcase. Peppe takes charge of the "robbery" when the Milanese is arrested on an unrelated charge. The valise is stolen during a soccer match in Milan and checked in a baggage room. The baggage claim ticket falls into the possession of Capannelle, an aging gangster who is dying of indigestion in a hospital. Peppe finally retrieves the suitcase, but he abandons it in a public park when the police, who later arrest him for jaywalking, appear to be closing in.
