I doubt this comedy ever made it outside of Italy, in spite of the american title given at IMDB. As far as these pre-Trinity funny (intended) stuff goes, this is not among the worst example, not so much thanx to specialist comedy director Steno (who was also responsible for the first italian poliziottesco) but mainly for Walter Chiari. The plot revolves around two cheaters who assume the identies of two heirs to a gold mine. But the villain tries all his best to let them kill each other, as he did with their assumed fathers. They will escape their fate thanx to "their" sisters.  Interesting to remark that Alessandroni sings most of the songs. 5\10
