Directed by Aldo Baglio, La Leggenda di Al, John e Jack (The Legend of Al, John and Jack) follows a trio of klutzy mobsters fumbling through the Italian crime underworld in the late '50s. The film begins at a drive-in movie where Al (Aldo Baglio), John (Giovanni Storti), and Jack (Giacomo Poretti) have rewired a car speaker in hopes of catching incriminating evidence on a fellow gangster's plans. Things go awry, however, when Al gets short-term amnesia from an inadvertent electrical shock. His compatriots take it upon themselves to re-inform him of his role in the accidental murder of one of their boss' old friends. In order to avoid death themselves, the three inept mobsters must concoct a plan to earn his forgiveness and prove their loyalty.
