Ottavio Alessi – Top Sensation aka The Seducers (1969)
Plot Synopsis by Robert Firsching (allmovie)
This preposterous sex melodrama stars pretty Edwige Fenech as a prostitute hired by the overbearing mother (Maud de Belleroche) of a shy, mentally-retarded 20-year old named Tony. Fenech is meant to claim Tony's virginity on a sea cruise, also attended by sexy Paula (Rosalba Neri) and her slimy husband Aldo, who incessantly try to curry the wealthy mother's favor. Ewa Aulin (Candy) shows up as an island girl who dies when the dull-witted Tony accidentally strangles her, leading her husband to board the ship, where he is quickly dispatched by the rifle-toting Neri. Bodies are exploded with dynamite, Neri models a leather bikini, and there is much sexual byplay, both straight and lesbian. Cult buffs will appreciate seeing two of the most famous sex symbols in Italian genre film, Fenech and Neri, sharing the screen in revealing costumes, but anyone looking for high drama would be best served elsewhere. Exploitation master Jerry Gross released the film in America.
