The vast majority of his directorial efforts are lowbrow comedies. He also directed I figli del leopardo, a parody of Il gattopardo. His biggest success came with the long-running "Nico Giraldi" series, which starred Tomas Milian as a foul-mouthed Roman policeman.

His 1971 film Io non spezzo... rompo was shown as part of a retrospective on Italian comedy at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.[1]
