Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Giovanni Bonfiglio (Paolo Villaggio) is a sports agent from Italy, and he has signed black basketball ace Ben Ferguson (Sterling St. Jacques) to his team for a lot of money. He receives an education in American racism because Ferguson, a Black Panther, must tie up a few loose ends before he heads off to Italy. One of his accomplishments in this fairly violent film is to quiet a potential race riot.
