Super Agente Flit (Brazil)
Flit (World-wide) (English title) (informal title)
We released on CD the complete edition OST by Bruno Canfora for the film "Flit" ("Il vostro super agente Flit").
Bruno Canfora (born 6 Novembre 1924 in Milan) became one of the most noted and expert television orchestra conductors, directing the orchestra for RAI in various TV programs such as Studio Uno and Canzonissima (starting from the 1959 edition with Nino Manfredi, Paolo Panelli and Delia Scala). He also often worked with the director Antonello Falqui. During the same period he wrote many hit songs like "Vorrei che fosse amore", "Due note", "Conversazione", "Sono come tu mi vuoi" and "Brava" sung by Mina; "Il ballo del mattone", "Fortissimo", "Il geghegè" sung by Rita Pavone; the famous theme song "Da-da-um-pa" proposed by the Kessler twins; "Stasera mi butto", made popular by Rocky Roberts, and many others. He also composed many soundtracks including this enjoyable one for the film "Flit" which is a parody of the film "Our Man Flint" starring James Coburn (who also starred in "In Like Flint"), to music by Jerry Goldsmith. Canfora composed the brilliant main score "Miliardunesimo" with a shake rhythm and a female voice, heard in the opening titles. It is then repeated in instrumental versions with a rock beat arrangement. There is also no shortage of action music, a romantic love theme, and cocktail bar background music. For this CD, the complete OST is included for the first time ever. The mono master tapes from the original recording session were used and a rare full stereo mix of the song is included, perhaps intended for a record.

Strange episodes happening during important diplomatic meetings worldwide threaten peace on earth. Heads of State, Ambassadors and Consuls mock each other for no apparent reason, as if they were in the grip of madness. In order to resolve this delicate situation, the head of N.A.T.O., Hayes, summons Super Agent Flit who is famous around the world for his exploits. Flit discovers that the diplomat's strange behavior is being caused by extraterrestrials who have hypnotized them. The aliens have had to leave their planet and come to earth where they try to instill terror in the world powers in order to start a nuclear world war which would lead to the self-destruction of the human race and make it possible for the aliens to invade the earth (for ethical reasons they are not allowed to kill humans directly). Flit, along with Aura- a young converted alien who falls in love with Flit, end up saving the world and render the other aliens harmless.
