Cheeky Italian Adventure
In ancient Mytilene, on the island of Lesbos, handsome warrior Kerwin Mathews (as Phaon) is wounded in battle. Luckily, the scantily-clad women of the island find Mr. Mathews and nurse him back to health. Mathews grows attracted to friendly, voluptuous and arousing Tina Louise (as Sappho). The feeling is mutual, which irks Ms. Louise's sub-textual female companion. To make matters worse, Louise's male companion was set to be Riccardo Garrone (as Hyperbius), who is Mathews' deadly enemy...
This was directed by Pietro Francisci and photographed by Carlo Carlini. They sometimes give it a dreamy quality, but this no Fellini. In fact, it's below average for the genre...
Mathews strolls through the part, impressing only because he's been good in previous adventures. Louise impresses in her looks alone; ludicrous but sexy, she did not forward her serious acting career with this one. The small-scale production saved money by having Mathews and the men go without pants; instead, they simply wore lower armored vests and pulled their shirts down. There are dozens of full-figured young running around braless in their satiny nighties. And, almost everyone gets to show some cheek.
