Storyline

Il mondo che ruota attorno alle corse dei cavalli ed in particolare alle scommesse è il protagonista del film; mondo rappresentato da Mandrake, Pomata e Felice. Il primo sempre sul punto di sposare Gabriella, il secondo in perenne fuga dai suoi creditori. Quelli che li accomuna è il fatto di perdere sempre e comunque. Poi un giorna Gabriella dà a Mandrake tre nomi di brocchi da giocare a una corsa tris. Mandrake si lascia convincere da Pomata a puntare invece su un vincente sicuro che naturalmente perde. Come perde Mandrake i venti milioni che avrebbe vinto giocando i nomi suggeriti da Gabriella. Guai in vista per tutti. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

the "King" of the italian B-movie
28 June 2001 | by (Milano) – See all my reviews

Among all the Italian B-movie of 70's and 80's, "Febbre da Cavallo" differs from the ability of the actors (a very young Proietti, who can be considered one of the best living italian actor and showman and Montesano) and the particular soundtrack, echoing the styles of the latin and the fusion.
