Storyline

Nora is a stewardess for ATI Airlines. She lands in Naples: a stranger gives her $100 to deliver a letter to Silvera, a brawny thug who has his boys work her over, convinced she's in league with "Il Americano," a mysterious underworld figure. Manuel, a young boxer, helps Nora get to her hotel and convinces her to seek police help. Wherever she goes, three rival gangs may be following her: Silvera's men, a gang led by a guy in a priest's cassock, and a smooth operator who gives Nora a consultant fee for information. Drugs may be behind the machinations. Is Nora more than an innocent bystander? A fistfight and a car chase bring matters to a head. What about Manuel? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ursula, Ursula, Ursula....
29 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

I wonder how, in all those biblical epics they made, they never got Ursula Andress to play the role of Eve. After all, she is the perfect female specimen, so what better choice is there for the first woman ever created? And can you believe that this incredible body and face belong to a (then) 39-year-old woman? And yes, she does get nude, frequently. There is a rather distasteful scene early on where she gets roughed up by some thugs, but don't worry, she takes charge later on and even kicks a little ass herself! The plot? Ah, who cares, it's just a senseless mess about rival crime organizations in Napoli. One strange thing is the tone: for the most part it's fairly serious, but when the fight scenes come they are shot in a slapstick style that reminded me of the Bud Spencer - Terence Hill comedies (with Woody Strode, of "Spartacus" fame, in the Bud role). There is also an overlong "comic" car chase with a clumsy Italian inspector. The problem is that these fights and chases are not the least bit funny. See this movie (if you can find it) only for Ursula...and frankly, she's reason enough to see it. (**)
