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.
