In order of merit:



1.Coup D' Etat (1969) ***
2.Crazy Desire (1962) ***
3.Il Secondo Tragico Fantozzi (1976) **1/2
4.Fantozzi aka White Collar Blues (1975) **1/2



Salce is another expert in Italian comedies and, among other things, he helped shape the legendary character of the unluckiest accountant of all time, Ugo Fantozzi (unforgettably brought to life by Paolo Villaggio); unfortunately, the frequently hilarious content of these comedies featured much which is quite untranslatable to non-Italian speakers and, therefore, very few people outside of Italy appreciate, or indeed are aware of this character and the seemingly never-ending series he starred in.

Amusingly, Salce’s son – who introduced his long unseen darkly comic political satire, COUP D’ ETAT, at the 61st Venice Film Festival in 2004 – was not very amused that the film was being shown as part of the “Italian Kings Of The Bs” retrospective since, in his opinion, his father’s work was not “B” product at all!
