Ettore lo Fusto (1972, ITA/FRA/SPA) C-92m. ** D: Enzo Girolami (=Enzo G. Castellari). Starring Vittorio De Sica, Rosanna Schiaffino, Giancarlo Giannini, Philippe Leroy, Aldo Giuffrè, Luciano Salce. Broad, typically Italian comedy spoofs Homer's Iliad, with De Sica playing Jove, who witnesses immoral events around Helen of Troy (Schiaffino). The setting is transported to the contemporary Roman netherworld of pimps and prostitutes. Fast-paced, mad-cap comedy for those who like this kind of stuff. Cowritten by Lucio Fulci! English title: HECTOR THE MIGHTY.
