After The Fox - 1966
Movie: After The Fox - 1966
Director: Vittorio De Sica
Synopsis: Written by Neil Simon, this cult mash-up is the story of a theft of $ 3 million in gold bullion in Cairo, and the attempt to outsmart Interpol and smuggle the gold into Europe. The only master criminal considered up to the task is Aldo Venucci, also known as The Fox (Peter Sellers). Venucci comes up with the the idea to pose as an Italian neo-realist film director, Federico Fabrizi, and bring the gold ashore in broad daylight as a scene in an avant garde film in a tiny fishing village. He cons the faded American matinee idol Tony Powel (Victor Mature) into starring, along with his stage-struck sister Gina (Britt Ekland).
Scene: Oka (Akim Tamiroff) the mastermind of the Cairo heist, is on his way to Fabrizi's hotel room, looking for his beautiful assistant (Maria Grazia Buccela), who Fabrizi is trying to seduce. When he knocks on the door she hides in the armoire.
Monogram: The initials FF decorate the trendy orange karate outfit that Fabrizi wears in this scene.
