Rome Armed to the Teeth (Italian: Roma a mano armata) is a 1976 Italian poliziottesco film directed by Umberto Lenzi.



Director Umberto Lenzi was offered a script titled Roma ha un segreto (Rome Has a Secret), a spy story set in the popular Roman district Trastevere.[3] Lenzi felt that the script made no sense and trashed the script.[3] He then asked the producer to make a film about the violence that was surrounding Rome at the time. Within a week, Lenzi improvised a script.[3]


Rome Armed to the Teeth was released on February 25, 1976 in Italy where it was distributed by Medusa.[1] The film grossed 1,617,361,000 Italian lira.[1]
