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>

Sexploitation comedy with a few priceless scenes
25 March 1999 | by SMK-4See all my reviews

This is one of these daft sex comedies that could only have been made in Italy, and only in the 1970s. Often, the moments and plot twists are just completely ridiculous and at other times the film expects us to take it seriously.

However, there are a few classic scenes of 1970s exploitation cinema in here which are just priceless. One of them lets us ogle at the nude Ursula Andress having a bath in her hotel room when she is rudely interrupted by the local Mafia clown (played by the unbearable Jimmy il fenomeno) with gun in hand and trousers down. Undeterred, Ursula smashes a radio on his head to calm him down. They don't film scenes like this anymore.
