An Alsacian Baron massacres the family of a French Duke, and takes his lands, and his title. Isabella, the Duke's baby child, escapes the massacre, is raised by gypsies, and comes back twenty years later to exact revenge. Written by
Now this is something a little bit different, Isabella, Duchess of the Devils, is the translation of the original Italian title and is mentioned within the film, although my print has the American title; Ms. Stiletto, leading me to suggest this might be in a category of one being a 'sword and stiletto' flick. Anyway, yes plenty of sword fights, pretty well done, rather a lot of talking, not so well done and a great lead performance from a plucky Brigitte Skay who wins most of the sword fights and bares just enough skin to keep us interested through some of the lesser moments. A lot of people dressed as soldiers chasing each other about but one or two quite extraordinary scenes including, the seduction of a near naked black slave who is to be whipped if he shows signs of excitement, as an extra at a banquet and an amazing scene where our heroine gets a mighty lashing, facing the camera.
