FAUSTINA - This romantic comedy concerns a young girl who is the product of a black American-Army regular and a Roman woman who shared a romance in World War II. The woman is pursued by two men who both covet a relationship with the dark-skinned girl. Scenes often take place amidst the Roman antiquities and ruins that have become famous the world over. Faustina (Vonetta McGee) falls for a shady trader who deals in pilfered antiques. She is also courted by her neighbor, who revels in the good things in life but seems to be allergic to any kind of manual labor. Faustina decides she must choose between the two men but soon leans towards the more carefree and comedic neighbor. 1968

I NUOVI MOSTRI - a series of short stories, showing the funny side of Italian life.

Also Known As:
The New Monsters (1978) (USA) (informal literal English title)
Viva Italia! (1977) (USA)

OPERAZIONE SAN GENNARO - In this comedy, two Yankee con artists pose as tourists visiting scenic Naples. There they intend to rob an old church. Before pulling the caper, the two enlist the aid of a local criminal. The theft succeeds, but afterwards the crooks begin double-crossing each other. Murder and mayhem ensues as one American murders the other and then heads for the airport dressed as a nun. "Her" loot is, in turn, captured by the Italian crook and his friend. The local thief then heads for Switzerland accompanied by a bogus "cardinal" who protects him. Unfortunately for the crook, the cardinal turns out to be the real thing and takes the treasure back to its original home. 1966

PAOLO IL CALDO - This Italian feature caters to a self-congratulatory stereotype of male virility which many an Italian male might fantasize as being true for himself. Paolo is from the lower ranks of the Sicilian nobility, and he shares his grandfather's penchant for beautiful women. Indeed, he proved his readiness for bedroom sports at age 10, when he beat his grandfather to the bed of a lovely young new house servant. As a grownup, Paolo (Giancarlo Giannini) now lives in Rome and cuts a wide swath through the female population of that town. Though the depiction of his succession of conquests is repetitive, one of the film's highlights is the great beauty of the numerous women he has encounters with. 1973

The Sensual Man (1973)
The Sensuous Sicilian (1973) (USA)

IL PRETE SPOSATO - This comedy takes sharp aim at the hypocritical behavior of supposedly celibate Roman Catholic clergy. Keeping to the middle ground, neither too "holy" nor too critical, it was a hit in native Italy. Don Clemente (Lando Buzzanca) has done too good a job as a priest in his rural parish and is promoted to a wealthy parish in Rome. Along with the new job come new temptations, most prominent of which is the desire to embrace the problems of Silvia, a beautiful young prostitute with a yen for married life (Rossana Podesta). Their relationship develops until he must choose between his calling and marrying Silvia. As he is growing accustomed to life in the city, he gains insight into his romantic temptations by observing how his peers and superiors in the church respond to theirs. 1970

Also Known As:
The Married Priest (1971)

PROFUMO DI DONNA - Before Al Pacino ever picked up a blind man's cane in the 1992 production of "Scent of A Woman," Vittorio Gassman played a blind army captain in the 1974 Italian film "Profumo di Donna," based on a novel by Giovanni Arpino. The earlier film unquestionably inspired the later one, though they differ significantly. The Captain, accompanied by Ciccio (Alessandro Momo), who has been assigned to him by the army, is on his way from Turin to Naples to meet with an army compatriot who was also disfigured in the same military incident. Unknown to his aide, the Captain means to fulfill a suicide pact there. While they journey, the captain asks Ciccio to help him spot beautiful women. Unsatisfied with the boy's descriptions, he uses his nose instead, claiming that he can smell a beautiful woman. The dashing blind military man enjoys considerable success with women. During their journey, he carries with him a picture of his beloved Sara (Agostina Belli), whom he could not bear to have see him disfigured and helpless. The suicide pact is eventually thwarted, Sara enters the picture, and the boy Ciccio does some much-needed growing up. 1974

Also Known As:
Scent of a Woman (1974)
Sweet Smell of Woman (1974)
That Female Scent (1974) (UK)

RUGANTINO - Directed by Pasquale Festa Campanile. 1973

SETTE UOMINI D'ORO - The bulk of this amusing crime film consists of a plan to steal a fortune in gold from the supposedly impregnable vaults of Geneva's Credit Suisse Bank. A criminal genius (Philippe Leroy) watches from across the street as his six henchmen -- whose names all begin with the letter "A" -- carry out the caper. Among the burglars are such familiar actors as Gabriele Tinti and Gaston Moschin, while Rosanna Podesta appears as Leroy's mistress, the scheming Giorgia. After the heist itself, which consumes nearly an hour of screen time, the group becomes fraught with mistrust and suspicion, only to lose out on their wealth when the stolen gold ends up scattered in a public square. Leroy and the rest returned in director Marco Vicario's "Il Grande Colpo dei Sette Uomini d'Oro" the following year. 1973

Also Known As:
Sept hommes en or (1965) (France)
Seven Golden Men (1965)
Siete hombres de oro (1965) (Spain)
