Synopsis by Hal Erickson

I Pompieri di Viggiu draws its title from a popular Italian song of the era. The title translates literally to The Firemen of Viggiu, and indeed the film's comedy is totally reliant upon how amusing one finds a group of bumbling firemen. Heading the cast is Italy's number one comedy star Toto, here aided and abetted by expert impressionist Carlo Dapporto. Drawing its material from several Italian stage revues, the screenplay offers a minimum of plot and a maximum of underdressed chorus girls. So far as can be determined, I Pompieri di Viggiu never received an American theatrical release, though reportedly it showed up on New York television in the middle 1950s.
