Those were the days as the saying goes. The movie stars were glamorous. Italy was the place to be. Production costs were low, profits were high, everybody was making money and the Italian cinema industry was booming. You had American actors in Italian movies. They were having fun. They were all on the top of the world. Life was good. Everyone was laughing; they were eating, drinking, playing, doing it all, living the life of real "Hollywood stars," when the term meant something.
