Peripatetic Spanish character actor Simón Andreu, in the first of three consecutive movies for director/producer/editor Ercoli, is the blackmailer holding the titular compromising shots over the head of newly-wed Dagmar Lassander (A Hatchet for the Honeymoon). Is her BFF Nieves Navarro (Ercoli’s off-screen leading lady, billed on-screen as Susan Scott) in on the sleazy scheming? Co-scripted by the prolific Ernesto Gastaldi (Torso et al.) and the film’s female assistant director, Mahnahén Velasco, with a score by the never-less-than-great Ennio Morricone.

In Italian with English subtitles
