Storyline

Francesca is a maid, not a thief, but under the instigation of her boyfriend Walter, she steals a necklace and gets on a train.

Unidentified cast #1

Rice female paddy workers

Andreina: she play one of the prominent parts among the "mondine", but it's likely she's not credited. There's a little possibility that she's played by Maria Capuzzo.

Emilia Carpeniti, called "Argentina": another supporting actress among the rice paddy workers who interact with the protagonists (visible here also in snapshots 12 to 15). She has several scenes in which she speaks some lines. So she could be Maria Capuzzo and also ANICA states it.

Others Rice female paddy workers follows:
