Robotti (Renato Rascel), a law-abiding bank employee, discovers that someone has been embezzling money at his branch, but when he brings this to the attention of his superior, he’s offered a million dollars in cash to ignore it. Robotti rejects the offer and is promptly given a pink slip. But after meeting Jane (the stunning Anita Ekberg), he abandons his moral code and starts playing the stock market. At the peak of his success, he gains a majority share of the bank that fired him. Loosely based on a true story, this screwball comedy is underpinned by Rascel’s earnest performance.
