Italian would be bawdy three parter partly from the uneven Corbucci.
This piece looks like it was a pot boiling assignment for Sergio Corbucci whose delirious westerns and vigorous Adriano Celantano comedies were high among the joys of Italian movies of the day.

There's a glossy finish and some well shaped women in various stages of undress.
