Synopsis
Don Camillo, the parish priest, is no shrinking violet. His straight talk and willingness to use his fists keep getting him into trouble with the church hierarchy. Giuseppe Botazzi, the town mayor known as Peppone, is a communist and therefore always arguing with Don Camillo. The fights between the priest and the mayor of the small Italian town are legendary.
