Il compagno Don Camillo
In the opening title sequence of the 1965 comedy Il compagno don Camillo, also known as Don Camillo in Moscow, a couple of madcaps get into a tussle. The conflict at the film’s heart is between two community leaders in a small town in northern Italy just after the Second World War: Don Camillo (Fernandel), the lumbering, tempestuous priest, and Giuseppe Bottazzi (Gino Cervi), better known as Peppone, the town’s communist mayor.
