3 Men To Kill

1977

Alain Delon, Dalila Di Lazzaro

Here's another excellent French thriller starring Alain Delon. The real treat however is his co-

star, Dalila Di Lazzaro who plays his girlfriend and has several topless scenes. Delon innocently

helps a car accident victim without realizing the man was shot. The two men who killed him are

now after Delon and make his life a living hell as they kill off all those he comes in contact

with. If you want to know who came up with the bullet through the keyhole shot Argento used

in OPERA, well Jacques Deray did it here 10 years earlier. A tale of paranoia, mixed with sex

and violence.

7 Hours Of Violence

Michele Massimo Tarantini1977

George Hilton, Rosemary Dexter

George Hilton is a former hitman who's blackmailed into performing one last job. It doesn't go

well and he ends up hiding out at a young woman's (Rosemarie Dexter) place. Not only are the

police looking for him, but a group of Chinese killers are too (this leads to Hilton and George

Wang getting into a kungfu fight that was obviously influenced by the HK films of that time).

Hilton becomes more desperate as all sides close in on him. An offbeat thriller with many

changes of direction along the way. Hilton plays a real SOB in this one which makes for a nice

change of pace. Directed by Michele Massimo Tarantini.

Damiano Damiani1979

Giuliano Gemma, Michele Placido, Eleonora Giorgi

Nino (Giuliano Gemma) is a hard working guy who has somehow pissed off someone important

enough that a hitman (Michele Placido) has been hired to kill him. Turns out a rich woman was

kidnapped and all who were involved are being brutally murdered. Nino has no idea why he's

considered as one of the guilty. Gritty crime film with Eleonora Giorgi and directed by Damiano

Damiani.

A Man to Respect

Michele Lupo1973

Kirk Douglas, Giuliano Gemma, Florinda Bolkan

This was released here as THE MASTER TOUCH and was cut. This version restores 13 minutes

to the film's running time. Kirk Douglas is an ex-con whose old boss wants him to pull off a

million dollar robbery. He teams up with an acrobat (Giuliano Gemma) to help him pull off the

job. Too bad he falls for Douglas' wife (Florinda Balkan) and together plan to double cross the

old guy. Bad mistake as Kirk will not be denied his revenge. The last 40 minutes are virtually

free of dialogue giving Ennio Morricone to go nuts with his music.

Franco Nero, Dalila Di Lazzaro

Franco Nero stars as a old man (actually he's not, he uses make-up to fool his fellow co-

workers) who plans on robbing his workplace but the plot is discovered by a fellow worker

(Dalila Di Lazzaro) which certainly complicates things. A great jazz score by Ennio Morricone.

who might talk about her important clients). Lots of nudity in this crime film by Romolo

Guerrieri.

Cop Target

Umberto Lenzi1990

Robert Ginty, Charles Napier

Excellent Italo-Cop film by Umberto Lenzi (who proves he's still the best when it comes to nasty

and violent action films). Robert Ginty stars as a cop hired by a woman to escort her and her

kids to a fancy awards party. Of course things go wrong and the woman's daughter is

kidnapped. He is told to back off the case which of course just pisses him off and causes him to

Excellent Italo-Crime film starring John Saxon as a tough cop out to rid Italy of its violent

Rod Taylor, William Smith, Ahna capri, Suzy Kendall

Incredibly violent detective film by Robert Clouse featuring Rod Taylor as Travis McGee, based

on the novel by John D MacDonald. Not only is sexy Suzy Kendall featured, but there is one of

the most violent fist fights between Rod Taylor and Big Bad William Smith ever portrayed on

the screen! This the uncut version and not an edited TV print. Ahna Capri co-stars.

Giorgio Ardisson

Vince (Giorgio Ardisson) meets Wally, an old friend from high school, and they decide to hang

out together at a hotel in Rome a few days later. Vince shows up but Wally has disappeared

and the more Vince searches for Wally, the his life is in danger. This is sixties mixture of a Spy

and Giallo film, complimented by a jazzy score. Director Mino Guerrini's technique certainly

influenced Giulio Questi when he decided to make DEATH LAID AN EGG a year later.

Letterboxed print. Al Cliver does his Maurizio Merli imitation in this violent crime/revenge

need be). Three of the worst criminals alive escape from prison and begin an unbelievable

crime spree involving robbery, kidnapping and rape. When they run over the young daughter

of a decent man, he goes psycho and vows revenge. An all out mix of DEATH WISH and the

usual nilhistic Italo-crime film elements.

deep end! He teams up with an underworld figure (Tomas Milian) and together they track down

the ones responsible. Stelvio Massi directs and Katia Christine plays the love interest.
