Irene Papas as the tormented sister of Stratos (Eli Wallach) who has a scheme to sell off stolen jewelry to rare stone collector "Madam Habib" (Poli Negri) who travels the mediterranean on her giant yacht with a pet leopard. While plotting the sale, Wallach's character gets drawn deeper into (attempted) murder and a frightening (for him) hyper superstition about astrology. Film has a lot of great scenery from Crete and the abundant Greeks in the cast (particularly Papas).
