Ace - £5.99

On his wedding night, of all times, a husband appropriately named Ace (Adriano Celentano) gambles away the night at a local bar-and wins a handy amount of money. As Ace heads home to his waiting bride Silvia (Edwige Fenech), he is killed by a hired gun. When he reappears to his wife, he has a hard time convincing her that only she can see him....he is definitely invisible to everyone else, and definitely quite dead.

So the next question arises-is there divorce after death?
