Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this comedy, Vince (Rudy De Luca) is a mobster who is soon to stand trial for murder, and he's eager to see the key witness "disappear" before he can testify. Vince hires Joe Fortunato (Ezio Greggio), an immigrant from Italy, to rub out the witness before he can take the stand. To remain inconspicuous, Joe disguises himself as a policeman, but he's so convincing that he's forced to uphold the law so as no to blow his cover -- which puts a snag in his new career as a hired killer. The Good Bad Guy also features Ronnie Schell and Dom DeLuise; co-star Rudy De Luca also co-wrote the screenplay, having previously worked as a writer on a number of comedies, including three with Mel Brooks.
