Storyline

La dimora del marchese Peccoli è abitata dalla domestica Caterina che si vede di nascosto col fidanzato Raffaele, dal maggiordomo Guidobaldo e dalla nipote Giovanna oltre che, naturalmente, dal marchese Nicola. Giovanna è senza saperlo, la promessa sposa del conte Rodolfo. La casa è inoltre frequentata dal commedator Sandrini la cui ammirazione per la nobiltà diventa il sogno di essere nominato nobile. Giovanna ama però Mario, semplice impiegato e i due decidono di sposarsi segretamente a causa dell'opposizione dello zio. Il marchese, saputolo da Sandrini, decide di impedire lo sposalizio fingendo una gravissima malattia che richiede la presenza costante di Giovanna. Nicola non sa però che i due si sono già sposati. Un'aragosta porrà fine a tutti gli inganni. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Nobless Oblige Italian nobleman to keep his niece from marrying a commoner
2 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a light comedy that might be hard to understand by other than an Italian audience. Following the second world war and the abolition of the monarchy, Italian noblemen fell on hard times, although nobility was still regarded with awe by the majority of the public. Nonetheless, the penniless noblemen were often depicted as objects of ridicule even as commoners aspired to the now meaningless titles. Uomini e Gentiluomini is a story about the love between a commoner and a titled woman whose uncle does everything he can to prevent the two from marrying. The uncle is played with verve by Vittorio De Sica, one of the foremost Actors/Directors of postwar Italy. The movie sees the first appearance of Elke Sommer, whose role of a housemaid speaking with the accent of the Venetian dialect is spirited and worthy of note, but the rest of the cast delivers predictable performances. Sylvia Pinal, who plays the part of the niece somewhat laconically, went on to become an iconic Mexican actress. De Sica and Sommer fans may want to look this one up, but overall it's hardly worth the effort.
