Here is an excellent costume adventure directed by Guido Malatesta. After Czar Alexander II names the vicious General Volkonsky as governor of the Caucasus, the Cossocks decide to plan a revolt. Alessio Andrejevic, a young nobleman, adopts his father's alias, "the black eagle," and begins to free villagers from the terror and tyrrany of Imperial Russia. This film boasts some wonderful cinematography by Augusto Tiezzi, as well as favorable roles for Mimmo Palmara, Loris Gizzi, and Andrea Aureli (the latter of whom actually gets to play a good guy for a change). This film also has a remarkable mucic score (by Angelo Francesco Lavagnino), and contains one of the best battle scenes I've ever witnessed! The fact that Umberto Lenzi wrote the original storyline for this film is icing on the cake. This film is simply too good to be true.
