Baroness Troixmonde (Cristina Ruspoli) leads a double life as the notorious burglar Filibus, a master of male and female disguises. Following her latest daring bank robbery, the famous Detective Hardy vows to track Filibus down. Attracted by the large cash reward for her capture, the Baroness decides to outwit the detective, while romancing his attractive sister, Leonora.  Find out more here
