Giovannona Long-Thigh

Giovannona Coscialunga disonorata con onore (internationally released as Giovannona Long-Thigh) is a 1973 commedia sexy all'italiana directed by Sergio Martino. The film reteams the two main actors of the 1972 film Quel gran pezzo dell'Ubalda tutta nuda e tutta calda and, as with the previous film, it was very successful commercially.[1] The original title reprises Lina Wertmüller's Mimì metallurgico ferito nell'onore.[2]

When a newly appointed judge shuts down a cheese factory for pollution violations, its owner, La Noce, bribes a monsignor to fix the problem. He discovers the judge has a liking for other men's wives. La Noce sends his assistant, Albertini, to hire a woman to pretend to be La Noce's wife. Albertini finds a virginal-looking prostitute with a dirty mouth. The girl's train ride from Rome to Sicily is filled with mix-ups but they hope that once she's in Sicily, La Noce's plan to compromise the judge will succeed. All the characters come together to create a comedic storyline....La Noce, his real wife, the whore, her pimp, Albertini, the judge, his wife, and his jealous secretary.
