Opening credits: The Gay Swordsman

Here are the opening credits for THE GAY SWORDSMAN directed by Riccardo Freda and starring Gianna Maria Canale. The original Italian title was IL FIGLIO DI D'ARTAGNAN which translates as The Son of D'Artagnan. The names have been changed for the English version with Riccardo Freda ending up with two different names: Freda directed and wrote the screenplay so his name was changed to Richard instead of Riccardo for the direction credit and the screenplay credit he's Dick Jordan. What's wrong with the director being responsible for writting the screenplay as well? Odd. As for La Canale, they removed Gianna from her name. This is a very rare film and I haven't seen it. I only have the beginning of the film. Any movie directed by Riccardo Freda is worth watching.
