Two Sicilians, Franco and Ciccio, are taken from a small town in Sicily and shipped out with a unit in the Italian army which has to fight the Austrian troops in World War I. Upon war’s end, Franco and Ciccio, more clumsy than ever, return to Italy but find themselves out of work.
The Shortest Day is a parody of the war movie The Longest Day and stars the popular duo Ciccio Ingrassia and Franco Franchi in the leading roles. Dozens of other well-known actors, from both European and American cinema, agreed to appear in the movie in cameo roles for free to avert the bankruptcy of the production company, Titanus.
