This is a great campy Italian movie from the 60s starring Marcello Mastroianni, Ursula Andress, and Elsa Martinelli. Mastroianni and Andress are hunters in an organized club in which members hunt and kill each other until they survive ten hunts. In both of their tenth hunt, Andress is the hunter. We watch her kill her 9th victim in a nightclub when she dances up to him wearing a metallic mask and bikini then shoots him with guns in her breasts. (This is the earliest appearance of a bra gun that I know of. Weaponizing a woman's breasts with guns has been parodied in the Austin Powers movies and later in their own ways by Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Sofia Vergara, and Ariana Grande, and probably others.) Mostroianni discovers that he is Andress' victim and makes plans to kill her first. He meets some men at a house where they bring out a crocodile. The plan is to get Andress to sit in a chair rigged to shoot her into the pool where the crocodile will be waiting to rip her to shreds. It seems like it would be a lot easier just to use a gun on her, but then we'd miss out on all the fun of the crazy plan. Unfortunately, she never makes it to the pool.
