Working-class lovers, Renzo and Luciana, marry but must hide it from her employer (plus, they need a room of their own).  A billboard of Anita Ekberg provocatively selling milk gives a prudish crusader for public decency more than he can handle. The wife of a count, whose escapades with call girls make the front page of the papers, decides to work to prove her independence, but what is she qualified to do? A buxom carnival-booth manager, who owes back taxes, offers herself for one night in a lottery: a nerdy sacristan and a jealous cowboy make for a lovers' triangle. In each of these Decameronesque tales, the women take charge; but not always happily.

DVD-R is in Italian with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 204 mins.  See film samples for sound and video quality!
