Dallamano's Rabid Actioner is One of His Very Best
Italian Title: SI PUO ESSERE PIU BASTARDI DELL'ISPETTORE CLIFF?
(Can There Be A Bigger Bastard Than Inspector Cliff?)
Also Known As: BLUE MOVIE BLACKMAIL and MAFIA JUNCTION)
director: Massimo Dallamano
starring: Ivan Rassimov · Stephanie Beacham · Patricia
Hayes · Ettore Manni (as Red Carter)
the scheme: Inspector Cliff - an amoral undercover cop - infiltrates
a Lebanese drug-ring responsible for heroin trafficking in the UK, then
tricks a Mafia gang into a deadly bloodbath, maneuvers corrupt cops
into a sting operation, convinces a high-price call-girl to betray her
drug-dealer boss (while enjoying the tricks of her trade for free),
and - ultimately - plans to keep the drugs, the money and the girl for
himself. By the conclusion of Massimo Dallamano's film, it appears that
Inspector Cliff has managed to pull all the strings; he is the sole
winner. However, he seriously misjudged the voracity of the Super Bitch...
film was Massimo Dallamano's only entry in the crime action genre [too
bad, it was one of his best films]. He began his career as a cinematographer

OF DOLLARS and
A FEW DOLLARS MORE). As a director, he only made a handful of
films (including VENUS
IN FURS, THE
CURSED MEDALLION, WHAT
HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE?, et al) before suddenly getting
killed in an auto accident in November 1976 at age 59..
