Ma chi t'ha dato la patente?:
Pero ¿quién te ha dado el carnet? (Spain)
Wer hat Euch bloß den Führerschein gegeben? (West Germany)
Digitmovies, in collaboration with the Sugar Group, presents on CD, for the very first time, the complete OST in full stereo by Carlo Rustichelli for two comedy movies starring the cool duo Franchi and Ingrassia: "I due vigili" and "Ma chi ti ha dato la patente?". "I due vigili" (aka "The Two Traffic Policemen") directed in 1967 by Giuseppe Orlandini and starring by Franco Franchi, Ciccio Ingrassia, Umberto D'Orsi, Luciana Scalise, Rosita Pisano. The traffic policeman Francesco Lo Cascio, paired with the traffic policeman Ciccio Merendino, is a relentless hunter of fines, who by imposing a fine on the mayor succeeds in getting a promotion. The envious Merendino, who tries to get a promotion for himself, in the end only manages to push both of them back towards more strenuous tasks. Both of them will redeem themselves by arresting a gang of robbers, therefore going back into service as brigade motorcyclists. "Ma chi ti ha dato la patente?" (aka "Wer hat Euch bloß den Führerschein gegeben?" – "Pero ¿quién te ha dado el carnet?") directed in 1970 by Nando Cicero and starring Franco Franchi, Ciccio Ingrassia, Angela Luce, Willy Van Der Valke, Raika Yuri, Clara Bindi,Carla Mancini. Holding a shabby driving school, Franco and Ciccio suffer from the theft of the only car they had. They buy another one, but don't know that it is rigged. Two beautiful American girls try to remove them from troubles. Carlo Rustichelli always had a great and rare quality: He never made a distinction between movies of the A or the B series, and the final result of his soundtracks was always remarkable. For "I due vigili" Maestro Rustichelli has composed a wild Go Go dance floor "shake" for orchestra and choir introduced in the "Main Titles" (Tr.1), which is then reprised in an alternative version for the scene where young people are dancing in a flat and their noise causes the neighborhood to call the two funny cops (Tr.8). The composer has written a mysterious lounge theme (Tr.2) and funny music (Tr.3, Tr.5, Tr.6, Tr.7, Tr.10) that without doubt contains all the typical elements of his well-known style. As a bonus track we include the unused "Main Titles" (Tr.11). For "Ma chi ti ha dato la patente?" Carlo Rustichelli wrote a nice theme performed by the whistle, choir and orchestra (Tr.12, Tr.14, Tr.16), a love theme with a jazz flavor (Tr.13, Tr.18), funny themes with a circus flavor (Tr.17, Tr.19, Tr.21), a charming slow ballad with a baroque-beat flavor performed by I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni (Tr.15). For our CD (47:20) we used every note recorded in stereo during the original sessions. One more record to celebrate the musical art of Carlo Rustichelli.
