Aldo Fabrizi is both director and co-star of the Italian Una di Quelle (One of Those). Basically, however, the film is a vehicle for the inspired film-clown Toto. The latter plays the ardent suitor of a seemingly respectable young widow named Maria. Actually, Maria is a prostitute, albeit an inept and unsuccessful one. With Toto's "help," she manages to bungle her first -- and last -- assignment, culminating in an emergency visit to a doctor (played by Fabrizi). What might have been treated as a turgid drama by Hollywood, emerges as a lovable comedy under the careful guidance of Signor Fabrizi.
