The Golden Bouzouki is a feature-length motion picture starring Johnny Diamonds. In ancient Mythological Greece Johnny Orpheus returns home to the peaceful village of Salamis to find that it has come upon troubled times. Assembling a crew of heroes like no other, boasting such famous names as Heracles, Theseus, Machiste, Hercules, Son of Samson, Ulysses, and Diogenes, Johnny sets sail on a musical voyage of adventure to obtain the Golden Bouzouki, a legendary musical instrument of divine origin which is said to bring peace to the hearts of men. Royal conspiracies, Mer-folk, Lakonian soldiers, a reptile of striking proportion, a tribe of Amazons, the dreaded two-headed albatross king, and even the mighty Togolos cannot keep Johnny from his ultimate goal, but will he return home in time to save his beloved city from impending attack?
