Italian reference sources "Filmlexicon" and "Colonna Sonora" both credit the music score to Roman Vlad. The most likely explanation is that the Italian musicians' union insisted an Italian member (Vlad was affiliated to SIAE) be paid to write a score, even if it was never used. See more »

The first thing I read about this movie was that it was terrible and that the first lady even though very gifted as far as bust is concerned was a nightmare when it comes to acting. However when I saw this film I had to disagree with those critics who tried to ruin a good movie. Even though the sets are nothing to those of "Ben-Hur", "Cleopatra" and other screen giants the sets of Cinecitta are stupendous. The colour is magnificent and the acting is quite good. It is true that the part of the heroine could have portrayed some more fragility, still Ms. Podesta' was quite satisfying. The cinematography is very good and the story never lingers. It is action-packed and is bound to marvel anyone who likes this genre.
