  1. A very unique film. It's cut together, using whole "blocks" of Mauri's earlier "...e poi lo chiamarono Spirito Santo" and "Bada alla tua pelle, Spirito Santo" and was given a new synchro. Mauri often reused parts of some of his other films or scenes originally intended to be in another one, but this is the only example of a film that entirely consists of scenes from other pics.

  2. Biltmore: Mauri learned how to reuse scenes from his peplum days!
