| 60's Cheese Fest By Harold Robbins
Yet another film I have watched having no knowledge as . The first name on the credits was Joseph E Levine a man who produced such classics such as ZULU and A BRIDGE TOO FAR so I hopped on to this site wondering what the film might be about . Oh dear based on a novel by Harold Robbins , a writer best summed by Basil Fawlty " Trans-Atlantic pornographic muzak "

As can be expected this revolves around a protagonist who has it all - Ceasere Cardinalli who walks in to a casino where the couples have the biggest age difference seen outside of Santa's grotto or a 1970s BBC dressing room . Of course being based on a Robbin's novel Ceasere has a past which he'd rather not reveal

Thankfully much of the story revolves around a couple of cops wanting to trace a couple of former mobsters who will rat on their bosses . I say thankfully because this is the best part of the story . Every time the audience gets a scene with Ceasere and the supporting cast we have to endure what sounds like very bad sound dubbing where - characters-talk - like - this - like - they're - foreign - or something which is a serious distraction

I'll give Harold Robbins some credit and that is you know what to expect and I don't mean the Nobel Prize For Litreture . We see a rather nasty melodramatic cheesy pot boiler where men are men and women are brainless sex objects in a movie that will not be studied at university film class
