Unsuccessful singing bullfighter Juan arrives in Barcelona to try his luck in a big town. He finally persuades a devious local impresario to book him, but only on the condition that Juan first manages to spend an evening with Olimpia, a "shrewd merciless beauty" who seems effortlessly to collect apartments and Maserati sports cars while leaving a trail of broken hearts behind her. Juan approaches the challenge by pretending to her he is an emissary for a rich count. Written by

Peter Sellers was legendarily difficult during the making of this film, even falling out with Kenneth Griffith, one of his best friends. He was most hostile towards director Robert Parrish, and made determined efforts, not merely to undermine him, but to replace him as director. Until a short time before the film's release, it seemed that he would get a co-director credit. But eventually, Parrish got sole credit - some have unkindly suggested that Sellers waived his claim because he knew the film would be a critical and financial disaster (which it was). See more »
Olimpia has locked Pepe Gamazo out of his apartment. In the opening scene, Pepe chases her from the street in an attempt to reenter his apartment. Before he begins running, his long straight hair has a distinct part on the left side that exposes a large portion of his bare forehead. However, Olimpia beats him to the door. When Pepe reaches the apartment door, his hair is now windblown so that the part no longer shows (now resembling Moe of the Three Stooges). Yet when Olimpia looks through the peephole, his hair is neatly parted with a large portion of his forehead again visible. After she opens the door and pushes him into the elevator, he reverts back to the windblown look without parted hair. Later in another scene when Pepe knocks on the door, his hair is windblown with his forehead covered by his hair. Again, the next point of view Olimpia sees through the peephole is him with neatly parted hair and his forehead exposed. See more »

There isn't much about the movie other than it was pretty much sub-par for Mr. Sellers. However what I did find interesting was the Spanish dance sequence in the middle of the movie. I don't know who the dancer was, but obviously one of great talent. As far as I'm concerned it was the only thing worth watching in the whole movie but it was bad for the movie itself. This exceptional dancer filmed in such artistic form was absolutely thick with raw sensual energy and when they cut away from her to the two Bobo's the movie's lack of substance was painfully obvious. From that point on Sellers and Ekland seem shallow and amateurish.
