KIRKUS REVIEW

Johnny Lang, a disarming crook, persuades Piero Fontana- at a price- that he can substitute a real da Vinci, on the walls of an art gallery in Florence, for the copy which is the only flaw in Fontana's collection of great paintings. With the help of Henry Fletcher, a drunken painter, as his copyist, and a young English girl and a middle-aged couple as camouflage, Lang succeeds- or seems to, but underestimates the danger of his attempt and the menace of his associates... Bright background tints (the Riviera, Italy, etc.) for a cosmopolitan confidence game.
