- Good morning.

- Good morning.

My name is "Four-Leaf Clover".

A room has been booked for me.

Room #3, sir.

It's on the 1st floor.

- And the bar?

- Over there, sir.

- A whiskey.

- With ice? - Straight.

That nice pin suits you.

It's a lucky charm.

Lie down, slave.

As you command, my master.


There's a registered letter

for you, sir.


- You may go.

- Yes, sir.

"We would like to draw

your attention to some photos

showing you

in a compromising light.

To gain possession

of the prints and negatives

you will have to pay 300 million.

You'll be informed as to how and when.

If the police are called in,

these photos will be published.

You'll be called regarding

the time and place for the exchange."

This is Altieri's law of ce.

I'm at present in court.

I will be in my office after 4 p.m.

You have 30 seconds

in which to speak, beginning now.

This is Corttesi, Altieri.

Please, call me at your

earliest opportunity. Thank you.

This is Cortesi, Altieri.

Please, call me at your

earliest opportunity. Thank you.

Did you hear that, Luisa?

That husband of mine

is always in trouble.

It's funny. He usually gets

his secretary to call me.

It must be something very serious.

You've made me curious.

Let me know what's up.


I suggest you go straight to

the police. Without any hesitation.

No, I'd prefer not to.

I must avoid any scandal at all costs.

I'd be faced with ruin.

I prefer to pay up

even if the cost is high.

If they should blackmail me again,

I'll do as you suggest.

I'm only giving you

advice as your lawyer.

It's up to you whether

you accept it or not.

On the other hand, it's your money.

I've no alternative.

I suggest you think

about it carefully.

- My mind's made up, I have to pay.

- Very well.

If that's what you want.


- Hello.

- Luisa? -Yes?

I've just spoken to him.



I know that there are maybe

some suppositions in what I said

but I don't think

I'm so far from the truth.

Excuse me, Mrs. Corttesi,

butt this wouldn't be a case of j ealousy

originating in a desire...

to get back?

Listen. I really couldnt care less if

my husband goes to bed with another woman

or goes in for mass orgies.

As I've already said,

it's been years since I've shared my bed

with him. I've asked him for divorce.

- Will you have some copies

made of this, sergeant? -Very well.

- And have some blow-ups made

of the girl's face. - Yes, sir.

You'll have them back

in a few minutes.

You'd better putt them back

where you found them.

Your husband

shouldn't suspect anything.

I've found this publication

in records dealing with porn.

The model in the magazine

is the same one in the photo.

You may go.





- Hi, Mirella.

- Hi, how are you? - Not bad.

- It's ages since I saw you.

- Well...

Those pants suit you.

It's my usual haircut.

What about you? You look fine.

- Hi.

- Hi, cutie.

- I'll phone you, ok?

- Ok.

- Don't forget, ok?

- Don't worry.


Hold it.

Come on, Willy, take pics'.


Ok, that's fine.

Let's modify the shot now.

Bruno, change the tape

and bring some glasses and a bottle.

Here, don't mess up the cushions.

- Aldo, you sit here.

- On the cushion? -Yes.

- Leo, bring in the backdrop.

- Ok.

Don't mess up the cushions.

Paola, come here.

Refresh their makeup.

- Is it all right for you?

- Yes, it's fine.

Leo, bring in the Paris backdrop.

No, it's ok like that.

Anna, come on over on the set,

we do have work to do!

You, come here with your camera!

- Just a minute, miss.

- Yes. - Good morning.

I'm inspector De Sanctis.

- Here's the transparencies, Mr. Liguori.

- Put them down there.

- And the black and white material?

- They are printing them.

- That's good.

- They'll be right up.

Max, listen to this.

"Youthful, beautiful, passionate woman,

unsatisfied wife

of an oriental diplomat,

mistress of the exciting secrets

of the Kamasutra, would like

to share her personal experiences

with a western high-class partner

who has a great capacity

and love for sadomasochism.

Who is that fellow

who's talking to Loredana?

I seem to have seen him before.

Really, but that's

inspector De Sanctis!

Until a short while ago

he was at the Vice Squad.

And now he's up the creek.

The Vice Squad is on the rocks.

He came regularly confiscating

materials where I worked before.

Ok, but what the hell

does he want from Loredana?

Hold it, Nadia.

- Right.

- Just one more.

Right, that'll do,

That's all for today.

We'll call for when

we need you next. You can go.


Well then, are you coming with me?

Stop it, Willy.

I told you a hundred times:

no, no and no.

But as you f*** with everybody else,

why don't you do it with me?

Because I don't like you.

If it's just a question of money,

I can make it, and a lot too.

Well, when you do,

give me a whistle. Bye.

- Goodnight, Luigi.

- Goodnight.

Always the last one to leave,

even when you finish early.

Well, we'll go to get home.

- Goodnight.

- Goodnight.

No doubt about it, sergeant.

It's Loredana Salvi.

So you've really

decided to go there.

- Yes. -Why don't you

leave it up to the police?

Because I want to do it my way.

Listen, if I was in your shoes...

But you aren't, are you?

Good evening.
