Tre Notti d'amore (1964): La Vedova
The first segment of "Tre Notti d'amore" is a black comedy about a widow who travels back to the hometown of her late husband to meet his family and see him buried. When every man she converses with on a significant level ends up dead, she discovers that her late husband was a big time mafia boss and that his hit men have been tailing her the entire time, making sure she doesn't cheat on her husband even after his death, and killing every man who gives the woman the least-bit of attention. A fabulously nightmarish concept taken very lightly and played for laughs, and it works in a very quirky way.
