La bambolona

La bambolona (internationally released as Baby Doll and Big Baby Doll) is a 1968 Italian comedy film directed by Franco Giraldi. It is the Giraldi's fifth film after four successful spaghetti western and the first film in which he is credited with his real name and not as Frank Garfield.[1] The film also represents the first of the four collaborations between Giraldi and the screenwriter Ruggero Maccari.[2] The film is based on the novel with the same name written by Alba De Céspedes.
