Maurizio Merli looks for a kidnapped girl and encounters Joan Collins
"Magnum Cop" came with the title "Fearless Fuzz" in the print I watched.
Maurizio Merli is an ex-cop turned private eye. He deals with his work in a fairly humorous way, sometimes making the joke on himself. But as the story proceeds, it becomes darker and enters noir territory as he uncovers an outfit engaged in getting teenage and younger girls into prostitution in Vienna, where most of the story occurs and whose locations add to the film. Merli makes as if he's a cop so that he can work with Gastone Moschin. The latter appeared in Godfather 2 as Fanucci, the don in the white suit whom De Niro shoots.
Merli has been asked to locate a kidnapped daughter of an older wealthy man. This takes him to a ritzy hotel where Joan Collins does a strip tease and briefly reveals herself waist up. Later in the movie, she goes nude again. But really it's her ability to portray a strong, independent, classy woman who can be both bitchy and sexually willing that's mainly on display. Her presence adds quite a lot to this movie.
It's pretty much a detective story with Merli running into some people who mean business and deliver him quite a beating. With a few twists as part of the story, the overall result is a solid poliziottescho.
