Trivia

One Night during the Shooting, a then unknown person uninvited entered the Hotel Room of Actress Uta Levka and crawled into her bed. When she turned on the light, she recognized this Person as Director Lucio Fulci who made obvious sexual advances to her. Levka managed to make him leave her room. During the next day, Fulci treated her very badly, often angrily yelling "Cut!" for no reason and insulting her all the time, complaining about her performance in a very offending manner. Eventually, Levka freaked out and, in front of the whole crew, loudly told him to stop his awful behavior, "just because I wouldn't let you stay with me in my bed last night". Fulci stared at her for a long moment and then continued shooting without loosing another word. See more »

Forget it...
23 February 2004 | by p13r0See all my reviews

Just a copy of another movie, "Operazione San Gennaro", realized in hurry to try to repeat its success. The plot is substantially the same (it is simply shifted from Naples to Rome) but without the humour and the style of the first one. Many of the secondary characters are the same in both the movies.

There is nothing particularly funny or smart in it, but for some strange reason this movie had more success outside Italy than the original, that is still broadcasted sometimes on the national television.
