A pipipip custom of the Italian retail.

“I can understand the previous reviewer’s frustration if he was expecting this to be a horror film, due to the extremely misleading English title (“Psychopath”) and Klaus Kinski’s presence (he actually has a very small role). The truth is this is an offbeat crime comedy, mostly flippant and parodic when it focuses on the hero, a gentleman-thief-master of disguise, and the almost Clouseau-like Inspector of Scotland Yard, who is always one step behind him, but also pretty grim in its actual crime plot, which ends with several deaths, including some of innocent people. The hero also has extra springy gymnastic abilities, which make for some unusual fight scenes. The female cast is exceptionally attractive: Sophia Loren-lookalike Gloria Paul has just one scene, a show-stopping musical number, and Orchidea De Santis appears in an equally show-stopping bikini. The music score is somewhat repetitious but extremely catchy. This is not really a great film, but at least it never gets boring.”
