is a young pop singer who REALLY likes girls.
He spends most of his time pursuing (and deceiving) all the beautiful
girls he meets. By resorting to all sorts of implausible schemes, he
manages to navigate among six different girlfriends at once... until
he meets Sandra.
pop-art musical extravaganza - probably loosely inspired by the American
IN THE ATTIC - was directed by Italian grandmaster Giorgio Bianchi.
Designed as a breezy vehicle for Italian singer Tony Renis, it also
introduced a bevy of beautiful young actresses, including Lola Falana.
She had relocated to Italy from the United States in early 1967, amid
negative publicity following a scandalous affair with Sammy Davis Jr.
The Las Vegas singer/dancer quickly learned the Italian language and
began appearing on Euro TV variety shows where she almost instantly
became a major star. This movie was her Italian debut followed by the
spaghetti western LOLA
COLT before returning to the USA in 1970.
This DVD also includes a half hour of Lola Falana bonus material from
various appearances on Italian television. Plus Tony Renis performing
the title song on a 1979 TV special.
