Lee J. Cobb,
Tony, a mob loan collector, is dissatisfied with his station in life. Though he dreams of one day being rich, he is stuck with the dead-end job of beating up borrowers who fall behind in their payments. After meeting up with Napoli, another mob enforcer who's just been fired from his job, the two hatch a plan. Together, they will con mob boss Manzari out of a fortune, after which they can retire and live in luxury. Manzari, however, is not about to let them go so easily. Written by

Powerful and excessively violent riff on THE GODFATHER. This colorful and strangely romantic film takes place in a gritty real-life Italian ghetto, a drab and terror-filled place full of poor folks in shacks, tiny red Fiats, silk-shirted dudes and sexy chicks in miniskirts. Jack Palance, his face looking truly demented, smirks and smokes endlessly from a cigarette holder, doing his damndest to look like a mob kingpin, but coming across more like a visiting tourist. Our two pretty boys run around Rome in their goofy little red Puma GT dune buggy, karate-kicking all the bad guys without getting their hair mussed, and sleeping with the local tramps. (Intentional) comic relief is provided by the hilarious Vittorio Capriol, who plays Napoli, a retired mobster who likes to wise-crack and sleep alot. Lots of fighting, and a cool, bloody climax in an abandoned slaughterhouse. Cool, downbeat jazz score by Luis Enriquez Bacalov.
