Plot synopsis
A remake of the famous Italian movie shot in 1951. The policeman catches and the thief escapes. When a charming rogue was trying to sell faked archaeological treasures to a naive foreigner he did not know what he was doing. The oversea guest turned out to be a director of a local Russian-American macaroni plant. The outraged American orders his guard to find the thief. The new-sprung detective tries to get into confidence of his sacrifice’s family. The thief and policeman families become the best friends.
