It would be interesting to know more about this obscure film, purely on the basis that it yielded two of Ennio Morricone's most beautiful and famous themes "Comme Maddelena" (Like Maddelena) and Chi Mai (Later re-used in "The Professional" and on UK TV) Comme Maddelena is just incredible, especially in the original version, with long drum riff intro (Rather than the 1978 disco version)It would be interesting to know what emotions, in terms of the film's story provoked these themes) As is so often the case Morricone has provided amazing music for films that completely disappear from view (another case would be La Califfa, from the same year)
These movies are probably worth re-releasing on DVD just on the strengths of their soundtracks alone
