There's a new terrorist in town, the mysterious and always masked Cobra, and he's blowing up industrial plants left and right, and now blackmails industrialist Pereira into paying him 2 million Dollars. Pereira gives in and lets his trusted employee Villmar (Espartaco Santoni) handle the handover of the money - which is a good idea because Villmar the mild-mannered and absent-minded scientist is secretly masked championship wrestler Goldface, and after he has handed the money over as Villmar, he gets it back as Goldface.

Cobra is not too pleased about this development of events, but whatever his men do, it seems Goldface is a few steps ahead of them. Especially Cobra's attempts to kidnap Pereira's daughter Pam for ransom fail time and again. Still, Cobra is very well-informed about the goings-on in Pereira's company, so much so that Goldface soon figures there must be a mole, and it turns out to be Pereira's administrator Gunner, whom Goldface eventually scares the shit out of, so that Gunner makes an escape right to Cobra's lair ... and Goldface follows in a safe distance.

Eventually, Cobra manages to kidnap Pam after all, and now Goldface knows he must strike, and thus infiltrates Cobra's secret island together with his black sidekick (Big Matthews), and once Pam is freed and safe, the police, which has been in hiding waiting for Goldface's signal, strikes, and pretty much all of Cobra's men are machine-gunned to death, Cobra is revealed to be industrialist Matthews, and Matthews' fiancée Olga, who has long fallen for Goldface, kills Cobra's female sidekick single-handedly. Matthews though seems to get away in a helicopter - until it's shot down by two police helicopters.

In the end, Goldface gets the girl - Olga that is.

 

Not a classic of any kind, but one of these loveable European 1960's superhero-movies (though strictlyspeaking, Goldface is not a superhero but a wrestler in the Santo-mold), in which realism and narrative logic and stringency always take second seat behind action scenes - that aren't necesarily all that well-made, and the low budget does painfully show in some scenes. But the whole point of the movie it seems are not its objective qualities but its high camp factor that makes it fun to watch not despite but because of its shortcomings.
