Coming from new label Thunder Island Releasing on August 11, 2009 - Asso aka Ace (Franco Castellano/Giuseppe Moccia, 1981)

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 see 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. Aghast at his wife's determination to go to work as a dancer on the stage, he undermines her rehearsal and then connives to get her married off to an appropriately aged and wealthy banker. So the next question arises: Is there divorce after death?

Widescreen, Italian language with optional English subtitles.

I've never heard of this one but anything with Fenech is worth a watch.

In my opinion, it's very very funny. Very celentanesque, I'd say  :-\

I agree, this one is pretty humorous. The premise is similar to 'Ghost'...[spoiler]with Fenech able to speak to and interact with Celentano after he is murdered at a card game[/spoiler]. Low on nudity but Fenech gets to work her through a variety of different costumes throughout.

Here are some screengrabs I just took of it, looks pretty good. :D

Seems to be a fair amount of blur when pausing movement though.
