Two Different Versions of the Same Movie
on One Extended DVD

original Italian title: COLPO ROVENTE [Hot Shot]
also known as RED HOT SHOT and SYNDICATE and DEATH IN THE FAMILY

director: Pietro Zuffi
starring: Michael Reardon Barbara Bouchet Carmelo Bene David Groh Susanna Martinkova

Police detective Frank Berin is removed from an investigation against top gangster Mac Brown, the owner of a pharmaceutical company, suspected of drug trafficking and masterminding a teen sex ring. But when the crime boss is murdered on a crowded Manhattan streetcorner - with no suspects or witnesses - Frank is brought back into the case.

This is an unusual DVD package for an equally strange film. Here are two versions of essentially the same movie, but they tend to be radically different. First, is the original 1970 Italian film [English subtitles] concentrating more on the hippie movement, drugs and prostitution. This version runs 85 minutes.
The second movie - released Internationally in English, four years later - is considerably longer (104 min) and the plot is much more focused on the gangster story. The print here is in English with Greek subtitles. Both versions have the same 'twist' ending.

It's the only movie directed by Pietro Zuffi. He enjoyed a career as the production designer for many Italian masters, including Michelangelo Antonioni and Federico Fellini. He died in 2006 at age 86.
Michael Reardon was a relatively unknown American actor, remembered only for a co-starring role with Burt Reynolds in the TV series Hawk (1966-67). This movie remains his only feature film.

San Francisco born Barbara Bouchet moved to Italy in 1971 where she landed the starring role in Alberto De Martino's MAN WITH THE COLD EYES. She soon became one of Europe's top stars and is known for many cult films including BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA, CONVENT OF CASTRO, CAULDRON OF DEATH and THE HOOK. Usually, she is an immediately recognizable blonde, but here Barbara is a brunette [see pic upper left]. In 1985, She started her own production company and launched her own line of fitness books and videos. She also opened her own health club in Rome. Today, Barbara still takes the occasional acting role and stars in the Italian TV series Ho Sposato Uno Sbirro (Married To A Cop).
