In un appartamento di una vecchia casa signorile, nel centro di Roma, viene perpetrato un furto.  Il commissario Ingravallo della squadra mobile, ha appena iniziato le indagini per scoprirne l'autore, quando nello stesso edificio, nell'appartamento contiguo, viene commesso un assassinio.  L'uccisa è Liliana Banducci, una donna ancora giovane e piacente, timida e riservata. Il nuovo delitto costringe il commissario ad estendere le indagini, che da principio procedono a stento, poiché gli indizi sono slegati e frammentari. 

A theft has taken place in one of the apartments of an old, converted mansion in Rome.  Commissioner Ingravalle of CID had just started an investigation into the robbery, when in the same building, in the very next apartment, a murder is discovered.  The victim is Liliana Banducci, a woman still quite young and attractive, but who, for some reason, recently re-wrote her will.  Now the commissioner has two crimes to solve and that's not going to be easy, because the clues are disjointed and fragmentary.

While not meant to be comical in any way, this very good, but dated, film, causes more than a few laughs with its stereotypical portrayal of overdramatic Italians; its lighthearted handling of the interrogation of everyone from suspects to male hustlers; and over-the-top melodramatic performances on the part of all the actors/actresses.

 

DVD-R is in Italian with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 109 minutes.  Minor softness and pixellization.
