Storyline

Nora is a stewardess for ATI Airlines. She lands in Naples: a stranger gives her $100 to deliver a letter to Silvera, a brawny thug who has his boys work her over, convinced she's in league with "Il Americano," a mysterious underworld figure. Manuel, a young boxer, helps Nora get to her hotel and convinces her to seek police help. Wherever she goes, three rival gangs may be following her: Silvera's men, a gang led by a guy in a priest's cassock, and a smooth operator who gives Nora a consultant fee for information. Drugs may be behind the machinations. Is Nora more than an innocent bystander? A fistfight and a car chase bring matters to a head. What about Manuel? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fernando Di Leo's "Colpo in canna" ("Loaded Guns" in English) should be a typical mediocre 1970s action flick. But it has nude shots of Ursula Andress, so that makes it ultra-enjoyable. The woman best known for emerging from the ocean bikini-clad in the first James Bond movie plays a flight attendant caught up in battles between rival gangs in Naples. But the plot is pretty much irrelevant. It's pretty clear that the movie is all about showing off Ursula Andress's body. Yes, every man who's seen "Dr. No" has spent eternity wondering what she looked like under that bikini. She had some similar scenes in "The Loves and Times of Scaramouche", directed by Enzo Castellari*. But the scenes here are the real deal. "Loaded Guns" isn't that easy to find, so you'll have to find a local video/DVD store if you want to watch it. And you'll love it.

*He also directed "The Inglorious Bastards", whose title of course inspired Quentin Tarantino's movie.
