The Italian Merchant of Slaves spends an inordinate amount of time concentrating on underclad young beauties who've been sold into slavery in the Middle East. For those in the audience not interested in this sort of the thing, the script dwells upon a captured slave trader who falls in love with a downtrodden unwed mother. The film shows signs of being radically re-edited for American consumption: after 68 minutes, it comes to an unexpected halt, after tying up only one of its many loose plot strands. Enzo Fiermonte plays the reformed trader, while Annette Bach is his lady love. Director Duilio Coletti does his best with slipshod material.
