Filmed in 1945, the Italian My Widow and I made it to the U.S. five years later. Two of Italy's top box-office draws, Vittorio de Sica and Isa Miranda, head the cast. De Sica plays Adriano Lari, who has been missing for so long that he is presumed dead. Returning home, Lari poses as his own brother in order to claim a huge insurance policy. But when his "widow" Maria (Miranda) begins responding to the advances of Signor Gugliemi (Gino Cervi), Lari has second thoughts about hiding his true identity. My Widow and I may be a one-joke comedy, but the joke is never played beyond his worth.
