Crime is Like Sex . . .

Ahhh, the good old days . . . My dad and mom got married in 1929, and their adult life began with the Great Depression, followed by World War II. With that background, Dad often told me stories of those days, and they were always 'the good old days' - with memories not of the bad times, but of the good times . . . about surviving and having happy days while the world around them was in crisis.

Sure, he described the hard times, but always pointed out the good things that came from them, like bread cereal. Once in a while he would suggest it to me in the morning, explaining that during the dark days of the depression when a breakfast of eggs, bacon and such were out of the question, they would make bread cereal by breaking slices of bread into bite-sized chunks in a bowl and pouring on some sugar and milk for a special breakfast treat . . . yup, bread cereal wasn't to grumble at the lack of bacon and eggs, it was to celebrate a special treat.

For him, those were the good old days, and his memories have a lot to do with my love for old movies that were made before I was born. Now, many years later, I am an old fellow, and my 'good old days' were in the late 1960's when I was a teenager, and this movie transports me back there. All of a sudden I'm a pimple-faced teen again. This story is as if Rowan and Martin made a Laugh-in movie (Google it kiddies) . . . the plot is all right, the acting is almost good, the comedy isn't earth-shattering but quirky enough to keep one watching eagerly . . . oh, and did I mention the girls? In the swinging, tie-dyed, paisley, free-love 1960's it was mandatory to have pretty young girls in skimpy dresses prancing around the screen, and this movie doesn't disappoint.

The odd part of the story is the leading man . . . Rossano Brazzi . . . if you are a fan of old classics you remember this Italian singer and actor as the leading man in the 1958 Rogers and Hammerstein blockbuster "South Pacific." With his brother Oscar, who was an Italian director and producer, Rossano Brazzi wrote, directed and acted in this sexy crime romp that could only happen in the psychedelic swinging 1960's.

Rossano is a University Professor in Rome, Italy who writes books on crime and helps the police capture master-criminals, but events conspire to make him think about actually pulling off the crime of the century for real. His mama advises him that Crime is like Sex . . . you shouldn't write about it, you should just do it.

While on a Sabbatical in Argentina with his student assistant Leticia, played by sex-kitten Ann-Margret, he plans the perfect crime . . . he will rob all of the wealthy patrons attending the opening night performance of La Traviata. Unlike the early days of motion pictures, in 1968 it is possible to show crime succeeding, and that adds a whole new dimension to movies that the motion picture industry could never explore before.

Ahhh, for the good old days . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
