POPSY POP (Jean Herman, 1971) **1/2
8 March 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Mildly enjoyable international caper, very typical of its period and mainly notable – if at all – for its eccentric setting (a South American diamond mining-town), casting (Henri Charriere of "Papillon" fame as the gang boss, Stanley Baker's graduating from criminal in ROBBERY [1967] to inspector and Claudia Cardinale as a beautiful but duplicitous chanteuse nicknamed "Popsy Pop") and plot situations (the film is as much about the diamond theft and subsequent chase as the settling of a score – of the romantic type – involving the three principals); equally to the fore, especially during the narrative's first half, is the vivid local color.

Another Jean Herman film which often plays on late-night Italian TV but I've yet to catch is the gangster thriller FAREWELL, FRIEND (1968) which basically hinges on the potentially dynamic star combo of Alain Delon and Charles Bronson.
