Storyline

The Duke Gagliardo della Forcoletta, a penniless expert in horse-races, finds out he has a daughter, Emma Marini, who works in the Bar Aurora. The Duke decides to participate in "Lascia o Raddoppia," a TV quiz show, in order to win the five million lira necessary to buy the bar, inadvertently becoming a celebrity when he wins. Gangsters Nick Molise and Joe Taccola bet between themselves on his success and attempt to fix the outcome.

Im quite sure the woman on the left with the jacket in pic n.1 is the Snobbish-looking lady, Johan can confirm that to us since he is the big expert on her, but im quite sure:

in5-6 is a young Enrico Cesaretti passing by behind Totò and i think he is on the left too in pic 61

Thanks, Cesaretti added.

Will wait for Johan's opinion for "Snobbish-looking lady", but it might be a long wait as he hasn't been around since new year.

I'm still around, but working on another project, so probably won't be posting much for a while.

Anyway, I agree on both counts (plus Cesaretti is also in pic 2).

About Giuliana Farnese, she is misidentified. She was supposed to be the woman on the far left in pic 89. At least that seemed like her in the old print, but less so in this HD print. This woman is maybe too old to be Giuliana in 1956...

Oh, and the man in pics 22-24 and again in 55-57 is Pier Ugo Gragnani.
