Goofs

When the Sicilian women are shooting at their men, only the first shots actually fire blanks, after that it is clear they are just pretending to fire their guns (despite the sound effects). See more »

Bloodless feuds between German Sicilians
3 November 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Swiss singer Vico Torriani stars as Carlo Del Fonte, a teen idol returning to his native Italy. His most annoying fan, Mitzi Underhuper, who claims to be the daughter of an American beer brewer, bribes Carlo's manager and stalk along to Sicily, planning to grab him for herself and take him back to the states. Meanwhile Tante Theresa (Brigitte Mira) is spreading the word that a notorious Texas gunman is on his way to settle the ongoing blood feuds. So when Carlo arrives, he is greeted by a couple of attempts on his life. Not to worry, the shotguns in this movie make a lot of noise, but there is very little smoke and certainly no bullets.

Soon the prettiest pink petticoat in town who goes by the name of Antonella (Gerlinde Locker) is falling for Carlo and he starts singing love songs into her hair that may or may not explain the title of this film. On the other side of the feud, comedy duo Wolfgang Neuss and Wolfgang Muller do a Danny Kaye inspired number of their own and set up a trap for the 'famous gunslinger'. But clever Carlo joins forces with Die Zwei Wolfgangs and promises that if they let him marry Antonella, the couple will take Tante Theresa away with them.

Our big star proves to have rather a limited repertoire as he sings each of his songs twice. To add a little variation, the music editors have some fun speeding up either the music or the pictures (but never both at the same time). I suppose this was quite amusing back in '58. When everything is just about resolved, Mitzi and the drunken manager (remember them?) try to stop the wedding. For a moment it looks like Antonella is about to meet the same fate as Appolonia from that other Sicily bound gangster epic, but then we remember Carlo has not reprised the song 'Antonella' yet.
