One of the world's greatest criminals and conmen, Aldo 'The Fox' Vanucci (Peter Sellers) has finally struck gold but to traffic his embezzled bullion he must enact his most outrageous scheme yet disguised as a neo-realist film director.
Co-starring Victor Mature and Britt Ekland, and directed by Vittorio De Sica, After the Fox is a madcap comedy caper, at once both a zany heist farce and a riotous filmmaking satire.
