The Countess (Bette Davis), a wealthy American with an addiction to card games and a large real estate portfolio, has become an expert on the card games of all the countries where she owns houses. The regional favourite in Rome is a card game called "scopone" and the Countess summons a married couple to be her adversaries. The couple, played by Alberto Sordi and Silvana Mangano, are the poorest of the poor, but the Countess supplies them with one million lire to play with, promising them that they can keep the money should they beat her. But the Countess is yet to lose a game...
This classic commedia all'italiana features a superb Bette Davis as the capitalist torturer in a benefactor's clothing with terrific support from Alberto Sordi and Silvana Mangano.
