Three Italian-American brothers, living in the slums of 1940's New York, try to help each other with one's wrestling career using one brother's promotional skills and another brother's con-artist tactics to thwart a sleazy manager.
A knight finds his village destroyed and abandoned. He tries to track the attackers down and avenge his family, but almost drowns. A maiden, prisoner of Black Knight, saves him, so he vows to free her, even though she warns him not to.
The movie was heavily advertised in infomercials for producer Santo Rigatuso's "Santo Gold" mail-order jewelry business. The movie's price tag of $2 million was paid for by the proceeds from the business. See more »
Aliens disguised as wrestlers cause a ruckus in this rare treat of a film. I don't call this film a rare treat because it was any good, I call it a rare treat because I must be one of the few people who actually paid to see it in its four-walled theatrical run at the Patterson theater in Baltimore, Maryland. While the film was in production, I saw TV commercials enticing people to pay to go to the Civic Center to watch the excitement of them filming the wrestling scenes. Those who have been on a set know that the "excitement" of watching someone filming a movie lasts only a few minutes. I wasn't there, but I heard the crowd got quite irate! Needless to say, I was anxious to see the film when it came out. I thought it would be bad, and it didn't disappoint. Sadly, it was a little too bad. So bad, in fact, that it was one of the very few films I walked out of at a theater. I think the other two were Robert Altman's "Vincent and Theo," which was bad in a whole different way, and the X-Rated "Blonde Emmanuele in 3-D." (I'm a 3-D fan, but I didn't need to see THAT coming at me!)
Despite its ineptness, I would like to see this film again. With the tons of material flooding the DVD market, one would hope this would find a distributor. Fans of campy bad movies would definitely enjoy it.
