Mike Connors Misses His Father
4 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Italian circus performer Mike Connors (as Mario Patruzzio) has an argument with father Robert Carricart (as Gino Patruzzio) just before they are to perform their high-wire trapeze act, as "The Amazing Patruzzios". Mainly, Mr. Connors won't listen to his Latin poppa's warning about Connors' slutty wife, curvaceous Yvette Vickers (as Carlotta Patruzzio). The hot-tempered group, made a quartet by brother Ruggero Romor (as Paul Patruzzio), go on with the show.

But, tragedy strikes when Connors fails to catch his father. Guilt-ridden, Connors turns to drink. Connors is unable to provide for brother Romor, and Ms. Vickers moves on to greener pastures (becoming July's "Playboy Playmate of the Month"). Vickers tells Connors, "You're not that big a bargain, remember that." Realizing his paralyzed father was correct about Vickers, Connors decides to kill himself... Only Romor is fully convincing, as an Italian trapeze man.
