Part of the program

In WWII, a luxe German brothel caters to a Nazi clientele; officer Helmut Berger has the establishment bugged and staffed with sexbomb spies in order to gain leverage over Party members and perhaps even the Führer himself. Meanwhile madam Ingrid Thulin and working girl Teresa Ann Savoy hatch their own plot. High-class Italian erotic film auteur Brass (Caligula) secured as production designer the estimable Ken Adam, of Dr. No and Dr. Strangelove fame, who himself had fled the Nazis.
