Storyline

Donna Carolina, rimasta vedova, ricorda con Don Salvatore la sua gioventù in America e in particolare la storia di Lucky De Simone: di come arrivò a casa sua una sera e di come ricevette l'aiuto di suo padre Don Calogero. Lucky faceva l'esattore per l'organizzazione, ma gli piaceva lavorare da solo e questo gli procurò dei guai per cui finì in prigione. Da qua lo tirò fuori Don Calogero. Ma i guai per Lucky non erano finiti. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

They tried to make Rome look like New York and Toronto
17 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film was Jeff Cameron's last film. He plays a secondary role, along with a few of Demofilo Fidani's regulars Dino ( Dean Stratford) Strano and Simonetta (Simone Blondel) Vitelli. Fidani set out to make a sequel to "Sedia Elettrica" which was set in the early days of American gangsterism. What Fidani ends up making is rather boring film. A mess, a montage of scenes composed mostly of action sequences that were removed from "Sedia Elettrica" which were fitted in as flash backs with some new scenes to bridge the present with the past. Some of the re-cycled scenes are with Big I Verdi but he's not given any star credit. Jeff Cameron doesn't do much, mostly drives around the back streets of Rome in his beefy Ford Mustang, trying to make it look like New York at dusk. Fidani almost gets away with it too, if it weren't for the painted road lines of the pedestrian crossing. Only in Europe do they have such crossings. The film ends with a series of shot outs that make no sense. Killing after killing, you have no idea whose on whose side. Vendetta upon vendetta, in the end Cameron's character Mike Artesi is crowned the new boss of bosses. Oh, about the Toronto piece I mentioned in the summary, Fidani has a van driving around the construction yards of Rome with Ontario license plates.
