This mild comedy finds two envoys from Hell sent to Earth to cause trouble. Relfagor (Vittorio Gassman) and his faithful sidekick Adramalek (Mickey Rooney) start out by disintegrating the peace soon to take place between Rome and Florence. While traveling, they manage to seduce the wife of an innkeeper, induce the wife of a nobleman to engage in adultery, and cause a wealthy count to lose all his money and die in disgrace at his own hands. When Relfagor falls for the lovely Magdalena (Claudine Auger), he loses his magic powers and becomes a mere mortal.
