n the early 18th Century, Northern Italy was terrorized by bandits - Boldest among the Robber-Chieftains was Fra Diavolo (the 'Devil's Brother') who masqueraded as the elegant Marquis de San Marco in order to mingle with the rich Nobility and locate their wealth. Great Lords lost their Gold to him - Great Ladies their Hearts.

In 1933, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy starred as Stanlio and Ollio in the feature film, "The Devil's Brother." This comic opera, based on Daniel Auber's 1830 opera "Fra Diavolo," is among the finest and most popular of the legendary duo's films.
