Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It is hardly necessary to note that the star of Totò cerca casa is popular Italian farceur Toto. Nor does it require a PhD to figure out the film's plotline. That's right: Totò wants to find a place to hang his hat, but the postwar Italian housing shortage makes this difficult. The "plot" is merely a series of anecdotes, some hilarious, others only moderately amusing. The glue that holds the enterprise together is Totò, who can make anything work. Totò cerca casa was the first of the comedian's four 1950 efforts.
