"Goldface il fantastico Superman" Bitto Albertini (1967) Intro Italiano
Adalberto "Bitto" Albertini (1924–1999) was an Italian film director and screenwriter.
He began his film career as a camera operator and as a cinematographer. In 1974 Albertini directed Black Emanuelle starring the then almost unknown Laura Gemser. Her subsequent successful career meant that she was absent from Black Emanuelle 2, and Albertini instead cast actress Shulamith Lasri in the title role.
In 1977 he released Yellow Emanuelle as a comeback. The film, starring Chai Lee, was very successful. However the film never reached the popularity of Joe D'Amato's series. His last two films were "Mondos" set in Asia, depicting shocking rituals and savage violence.
He died in Italy in 1999 at age 74.
