Kriminalkomödie basierend auf dem tatsächlichen Diebstahl der Mona Lisa durch den italienischen Anstreicher Vincenzo Peruggia im Jahr 1911: Im Film stiehlt Peruggia das Gemälde aus dem Louvre, um dem Stubenmädchen Mathilde zu imponieren, das sich wünscht, dass jemand etwas Großes für sie tut. Als Mathilde dennoch mit einem anderen Mann durchbrennt, schenkt Peruggia das Gemälde dem italienischen Staat und wird verhaftet. Angelockt durch die weltweiten Schlagzeilen, die die Rückgabe der Mona Lisa macht, kommt Mathilde nach Florenz, wo Peruggia der Prozess gemacht wird. Mathilde glaubt, nun würde sie im Mittelpunkt stehen. Aber als Peruggia sie unter den Zuschauern sieht, gibt er einen anderen Grund fur den Diebstahl.

This German crime drama was based on a true story. Willy Forst stars as a poverty-stricken Italian glazier who falls in love with French hotel maid Rosa Valletti. Struck by the girl's resemblance to Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Forst manages to steal the painting from the Louvre in hopes of impressing his sweetheart. But when the girl proves to be a fickle sort, the crestfallen hero confesses his crime and is carted off to jail. Unwilling to admit that he'd been led astray by a woman, Forst claims that he stole the Mona Lisa to restore it to his native Italy, and as a result is hailed as a national hero!
