7 Golden Women Against Two 07 (1966)


7 donne d’oro contro due 07 (original title)

7 Golden Women Against Two 07 (Worldwide)
Sette donne d’oro contro due 07 (Italy)

1966 Italy
Direction: Vincenzo Cascino (who also plays the villain Barbikan)
Actors: Mickey Hargitay, Maria Vincent, Luciana Paoli

Former Mr. Universe and Mr. Jayne Mansfield, Mickey Hargitay plays Mark Davis, secret agent Two 07. He’s on a mission to locate a Nazi treasure hidden in the Mediterranean by Martin Bormann. The location of the treasure is hidden in a Goya painting. The only problem is, seven identical replicas of the painting were sold at auction to seven “beautiful” women, each hoping against hope that theirs is the real McCoy. Cue the obligatory catfights…

Of course, even though the film is titled 7 Golden Women Against Two 07, these eight principals aren’t the only ones after the treasure. Leading the pack of also-rans is the writer-director-producer-editor-and-star Vincenzo Cascino as Barbikian. There’s no explanation as to why he’s painting them gold and the only justification is it looked good on Shirley Eaton.
