Ponti - De Laurentiis for Excelsa / Rosa Films (
Sophia has a small role again with Totò, the inimitable Italian comic. This is in fact the fifth and last film in which they appear, together or not. Sophia was an extra in Tototarzan and Le sei mogli di Barbablù and also starred in L'oro di Napoli but in a different sketch than Totò. The two true collaborations of Totò and Sophia are Miseria e nobiltà and Tempi nostril, which was filmed just a few months prior to this one.
The film is directed by Mario Mattoli who also directed Sophia in Due notti con Cleopatra.
"Toto improvises an extraordinary duet with his future 'niece', a radiant Sophia: taking advantage of the situation he indulges in embraces and effusions which are a masterpiece of humor... The great success of Poverty and Nobility did not help Sophia in any particular way. It was just a confirmation of her popularity."
Stefano Masi, Sophia.
"Sophia Loren and Franca Faldini
are satisfied just to appear provocative."
