Giorgio Bianchi Writers: Luigi Angelo (story), Sandro Continenza (dialogue) | 4 more credits » Stars: Totò, Peppino De Filippo, Nadia Sanders

Lured by the promise of big money offered to him by two Nazis, Toto la Puzza agrees to appear in an American court in West Berlin and impersonate a general, who's being tried for war crimes. Unfortunately, the Nazis promised the same amount of money to another poor fool, Peppino Paglialunga, to testify against Idiot Number One. It doesn't take long for the Americans to realize what they're dealing with and promptly release the two with a figurative kick in the rear. After being released, the two men head for East Berlin, where Russian security forces promptly put them under arrest. When they're found to be carrying a book, which Toto uses as an advisor to pick out lottery numbers, the Russians believe to have found a secret code book and order the two chumps to use the code to find the flight paths American spy planes are using to violate Soviet airspace. Things don't get better, when Toto's dead aunt comes to him in a dream, dictating a row of numbers which supposedly correspond to the coordinates of these illegal flight paths. When the Russians end up shooting down one of their own planes based on these numbers, they come to the realization that these Italian idiots have nothing to do with espionage. That, however, doesn't prevent a Russian general from trying to use the two in an exchange against two Soviet agents in American hands. They're escorted to the Berlin Wall and released into the West, where a waiting car whisks them off to the airport. Convinced they're finally on their way back to Italy, they're more than a bit nonplussed when the pilot announces that they've just passed Peking.

ale di guerra ricercato. Greta, figlia dell'ammiraglio gli offre 20 milioni per far finta di essere il padre e Antonio accetta. Ma quando scopre che lo aspetta una condanna a morte grazie alla testimonianza di Giuseppe, pagato da Greta, rivele la verità agli americani e riesce a convincerli con l'aiuto della... Smorfia. Ma ci sono sempre i russi che, catturati i due, vogliono fare decifrare i codici segreti americani. La smorfia e la zia monaca (defunta) danno una mano ad Antonio e i guai sembrano finiti, ma le sorprese sono sempre in agguato.
