Would be gangster epic stars legit Italian actress
With this feature former Italian mainstream actress turned porn-star Lilli Carati tried her luck in American Adult features. So, director Alex de Renzy jumped on this opportunity to make his own 'Godfather', complete with an opening sequence set in Palermo, Sicily (but obviously not filmed there). Also note the Italian dialog with English subtitles. Still, the end result is just a bunch of American looking people with big Eighties hair and enormous shoulder pads trying to act butch while having a lot of sex.
The version of The Whore commented on here was found on the internet and at 45 minutes is definitely incomplete, though it does feature lengthy opening and closing credits (much longer than those usually found on this sort of picture). Since it does have a beginning and and an end, I feel like I get the gist of what De Renzy was going for, meriting this comment.
The Don then arranges to kidnap Eddie's wife Liz (Tracey Adams) and puts her up in his late mother's bedroom. Which is a bit strange as he normally won't have anyone in there. The room is strictly off limits for his Sicilian niece, whom he naturally catches getting to know the maid intimately in there. Not to be outdone, Eddie somehow kidnaps Gina (the version I saw skips right to the end around this time) and there is an exchange, in which it turns out Liz prefers to stay with the Don instead. So it's not exactly Mario Puzo, but it does have a more elaborate plot than most films of it's ilk. Unfortunately I must have missed how the whole subplot with the Judge was resolved, if any. Still, this Whore is worth seeking out if only to see Lilli Carati's final on screen role, and partially in English to boot.
