Pipolo (who was born Giuseppe Moccia) and Castellano would go on to alternate writing and directing duties for the rest of their careers. While frequently receiving bad reviews from the Italian critics, Pipolo and Castellano were nevertheless very popular with the vast majority of the Italian moviegoing public and as a result had five of the top 100 grossing films in Italian history, with two of those films in the Top Ten.
