The Innocent Casimiro

The Innocent Casimiro (Italian: L'innocente Casimiro) is a 1945 Italian comedy film directed by Carlo Campogalliani and starring Erminio Macario, Lea Padovani and Olinto Cristina.[1] It is based on a play Scandalo al Collegio by Mario Amendola, and was mainly shot in 1943. However it was disrupted by wartime events and was not released until 1945. It was the first release to be distributed by Lux Film following the Liberation. Critics were generally disappointed with the film, made in the traditional pre-war style of "schoolgirl comedies".[2]
