La Diabolique

During the height of the Flower Power era in the Sixties, Marisa Mell was drawn for a poster enclosed in a French movie magazine to promote her latest movie "Danger: Diabolik!" (1968). On her dress are written the words "Marisa Mell" and "La Diabolique". Without it, you could not have known that the women on the poster was the actress Marisa Mell because the drawing is not very life like and rather abstract trying to imitate Andy Warhol, who was also at the height of his popularity during that time. The same kind of drawing style and lay out was picked up and better done last year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ian Fleming's birth by Michael Gillette for a re-edition of the James Bond books by publisher Penguin!
