A psychotic small-time criminal realizes that the everyday robberies, rapes and murders he commits aren't making him all that much money, so he figures to hit the "big time" by kidnapping the daughter of a rich man.
When Terry Levene distributed this film in the late 1970's, he replaced a few of the establishing shots with those of American locations. For an establishing shot of the Rome youth center where Tanzi meets Stefano, Levine used a shot of the Manhattan night club "Fascination". Strangely enough, in the later Lenzi film Da Corleone a Brooklyn (1979) (which also starred Maurizio Merli as an Italian policeman), Merli drives by the club "Fascination" after he arrives in New York.

Italian crime drama released with stars not billed in 1982!
Terry Levine done it again! He picked up a 1975 italian cop film, edited it down to 79 min, and open it wide in New York in 1982 (or was it 1981). People Magazine even reviewed this film!! Levine failed to mention the stars Arthur Kennedy, Tomas Milian, and little known (in the U.S.) the late action star Maurizio Merli doing the franco Nero role of a cop hellbend on going after the hunchback psycho (Milian). Levine tacked in the movie poster as the begining credit (!) (similar to what he did in MEAN FRANK AND CRAZY TONY, which he failed to mention Tony LoBianco) Kennedy is the only actor not dubbed, and the film just look standard with A to Z script. Milian, who use to get lead good guy roles in Italian film slowly became supporting player playing bad guys. Kennedy looks like he shot this film back to back with KILLER COP. Not recommended, unless the un-cut print runs better.
