Confusing movie? Maybe, but I guess I have to be the one digging up valuable info. I can't tell you much, just what I know. What little info there is on this film is on my In Memoriam: Alexander Salkind segment in my KringleQuest.com website. So here goes, and remember, I'm quoting straight from what I wrote: "This was [the Salkinds'] only 'vanity project,' in that the script had been conceived and written by Berta [Dominguez D.] for the express purpose of casting herself in the lead female role. As both writer and star, she would assume the pseudonym Cassandra Domenica, while [presenter Alexander Salkind,] her husband would cast Tony Curtis...[as] the bizarrely named central character, one Parsifal Katzenellenbogen, the notorious inventor of the skywriting industry...this lively piece of satire[, which takes a lighthearted look at the history of advertising slogans,] has never been released theatrically in the U.S.; for some reason, it is the only Salkind picture from the twilight of [his career] to bear that distinction." Hope that clears things up for those you who were 'confused' by this title.
