Because You d The Overcoat
Drama Comedy 
19521h 41mOn: Kanopy Country: Italy

The classic Nicolas Gogal fable The Overcoat is given a European flavor by Italian filmmaker Alberto Lattuada; some consider the film to be Lattuada's best "psychological study." Comedian Renato Rascel plays a nebbishy nobody who spends his life-savings on a fancy overcoat. Suddenly, the nobody becomes a somebody, proving beyond doubt that clothes make the man. And then one day, the overcoat is stolen...Fleshing out the short-but-bittersweet Gogol original are several colorful new characters, including a publicity-hungry small-town mayor, played by Giulio Stival. The background music was composed by director Lattuada's wife Felice. American prints of Il Cappato are missing a so-called "naughty" telephone exchange between the mayor and his silken mistress.The Overcoat featuring Renato Rascel and Yvonne Sanson is streaming with subscription on Kanopy. It's a comedy and drama movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 7.6 (551 votes).
