Originally set to star Martin Balsam and Sybil Danning, this co-production between Italy and Austria features Joan a seductive stripper with a grubby little sideline in grooming schoolgirls for a prostitution ring! Even with this over dramatic, if not seedy plot, the film manages to include moments of comedy which may seem out of place in a gritty thriller. Joan appears in the latter part of the film and more than makes up for her absence in the first forty minutes..
As her role is that of a night club stripper, she does do a more daring strip routine than we witnessed in the 1960 crime caper "Seven Thieves"! Joan looks sensational in the film and certainly gives the film a boost of international style and glamour. Like most Italian films, this release has been available under many titles including, 'Magnum Cop' (USA), 'Fearless Fuzz' (Europe), 'Fearless'(USA DVD), Die Zuhalterin (Germany).
First premiered on March 1978, it was released on video in the 80's in an acceptable print, however since then it has turned up under many titles on a variety of DVD labels, many of which using a worn out VHS master. A cd of the soundtrack by Stelvio Cipriani was released a while ago by Megaphon Italy. The films star Maurizio Merli died in 1989 and as a tribute this film was screened on Italian tv!
