Movie Info

In this comedy, two Yankee con artists pose as tourists visiting scenic Naples. There they intend to rob an old church. Before pulling the caper, the two enlist the aid of a local criminal. The theft succeeds, but afterwards the crooks begin double-crossing each other. Murder and mayhem ensues as one American murders the other and then heads for the airport dressed as a nun. "Her" loot is, in turn, captured by the Italian crook and his friend. The local thief then heads for Switzerland accompanied by a bogus "cardinal" who protects him. Unfortunately for the crook, the cardinal turns out to be the real thing and takes the treasure back to its original home.more

Audience Reviews for The Treasure of San Gennaro


Dino Risi films are for me synonym of a bit ourageous, over the top, silly but delightful sense of humour. this is a prime example of it, a hilarious caper movie with an excellent Nino Manfredi.
