I actually typed "Mexico" and edited my post after that when I realized you said it was made in Southern Europe. :lol:
Well, you got it right in the end. You forgot to mention that the film was made post-1965 though.

This is confusing. Is this really the same movie as the gorgeous B&W pics at the previous page?

Glad you find it confusing, Joachim. Mission accomplished. :P
But yes, it's the same film. Would you expect to find this in a period film?

It's made in the 1980s. And yes, it's the same lady as in the pic above.

Huh, I didn't know Groucho Marx was an Italian from the 80's. :shrug:

Haha, my thoughts exactly. Anyhow, it seems this goes nowhere so allow me to reveal the title:

Ladri di saponette aka The Icicle Thief (1989)

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/ladri+di+saponette/
A movie resembling Ladri di biciclette (1948) is shown on TV, but the real-life world gets muddled with the film and the TV commercials.
