La mortadella (1971)

Trama
La napoletana Maddalena Ciarrapico, lascia il lavoro e l'Italia per raggiungere, a New York, il fidanzato Michele Bruni. Arrivata in America, le autorità doganali non le danno il permesso di lasciare l'aeroporto, poiché la ragazza ha con sé una mortadella e la legge americana proibisce l'importazione di insaccati. Non intendendo separarsene Maddalena resiste caparbiamente alle ingiunzioni dei doganieri, che tuttavia risolvono il caso divorando la mortadella.
