Anita Ekberg stars in this wicked satire of the Italian judicial system directed by Dino Risi. As Olga Dubovich, the widow of a wealthy man who died under mysterious circumstances, the beautiful Ekberg is able to charm her way into an acquittal on murder charges once a change of venue puts her on familiar territory. Claudio Gora and Ettore Manni co-star in this delightful romp, with Ekberg turning in an engaging comic performance. The script, by Marcello Coscia, Dino Di Palma, and Sandro Continenza, has its slow spots, but is amusing enough to overcome them.
