Adult for Kids
...but It will Thrill the Kid inside all Adults
Italian title COME RUBARE LA CORONA D'INGHILTERRA [How to Steal
the Crown of England]
also known as ARGOMAN THE FANTASTIC SUPERMAN and THE INCREDIBLE
and ARGOMAN AGAINST THE ROBOTS
Grieco (as Terrence Hathaway)
starring Roger Browne · Dominique Boschero · Eduardo Fajardo
· Nadia Marlowa · Nino Dal Fabbro
Lawrence from Scotland Yard discovers the Crown of St Edward has been
stolen from the Tower of London in a daring daylight robbery. It appears
to be the work of masked criminal Argoman! The Inspector looks for help
from debonair Sir Reginald Hoover (actually, unbeknownst to him, the
secret identity of Argoman). Sir Hoover is a British adventurer and
master scientist [plus, of course, an arch criminal] with a luxury villa
on the French Riviera. He's a compulsive womanizer but that is his 'kryptonite'
(Argoman loses his super powers six hours after sexual intercourse).
However, his non-sexual superpowers are extraordinary: ESP, super-hearing,
and exceptional personal magnetism. This is his movie. It tells the
story of Argoman's conflict against Jenabell as she attempts to become
Queen of the World and expose him while doing it.
Batman crossed with James Bond. It's decidedly too adult
for kids but it will thrill the kid inside all adults. Dominique Boschero
as arch-villainess Jenabell is HOT. Fresh from
her breakout role in Ernesto Gastaldi's LIBIDO,
she accepted this project before turning to a number of supporting parts
in Spaghetti Westerns. In 1969, she returned to sizzling cinema with
Antonio Margheriti's UNNATURALS.
By the late '70s, after supporting roles in popular Giallos (ALL
THE COLORS OF THE DARK, WHO
SAW HER DIE?, et al), she retired to Frassino, a small
mountain village with a few hundred of inhabitants (unaware that she
was once the Queen of the World).
