So I saw part of this movie in an Italian restaurant (with English subtitles) and it seemed really funny so here are all the details I remember :

  • The movie is old, Italian, black and white, probably from the 50's
  • The characters are all trying to get a suitcase with a lot of money in it since they are poor
  • They steal it from a guy who asks them to knock him off so that he can say it was stolen and he couldn't do anything about it
  • They had a technique so that their car could change color and that it won't be recognized by the police
  • There is a man that was hidden in a dumpster and goes back to his wife to tell her they're about to be rich since his friends found the suitcase

That's about all that I can remember since it was playing during a dinner with my family in the background of the restaurant.

That'd be L'audace colpo dei soliti ignoti (see here for the English Wikipedia and here for the Italian one, with more details), also known as Fiasco in Milan, directed in 1959 by Nanni Loy, with Vittorio Gassman, Renato Salvatori and Claudia Cardinale.

It was a sequel to the more renowned I soliti ignoti (1958) by Mario Monicelli.

(I am not sure whether it is legit, but the film can be found on YouTube, with the not-exactly-hi-tech colour-changing car from 56:20.)
