Eurocult Looney Tunes!

Marisa Mell was one of the most beautiful actresses of her time! During her reign in the Eurocult scene a lot of photo's where taken from her. This one is from March 1964 when she attended in Argentina the Buenos Aires "Festival Internacional de Cine de Mar del Plata" . Already early on Marisa Mell had a lot of success with her films in the Spanish speaking countries appealing to a lot of latino men. So Spanish language newspapers started to cover the movies she made often accompanied with a review of that movie. Because the internet and desk top publishing are still decades away the editors of the newspapers asked often cartoonists to make a little drawing of the content of the movie so to liven up the review a little bit. This week's entry shows some cartoons of that time as being published during the 60's and 70's. You will notice the cartoons are not very flattering to the beauty of Marisa Mell.

Hi Mirko,

The second one is quite flattering and some of the others you can see it's definitely Marisa (albeit a caricature of her!), but a few of them look absolutely nothing like her at all!!!

Are you familiar with the blog "The Wrong Side of the Art"? It features posters from B-movies, spy movies, Eurocult, 70's explotation movies and similar. Today there was a poster for a 1972 film called "Rivelazioni di un maniaco sessuale al capo della squadra mobile" starring Farley Granger and Sylva Koscina.

When the poster pictures come in my RSS feed, they are quite small and this one had some more of the cast's names at the bottom of the poster, so small that I couldn't quite read them properly without clicking on it, but I noticed immediately that for the person credited last, their first name had an "S" in the middle and the last letter was "A" and that the last name was four letters long and the last three were "E-L-L". I immediately clicked on it thinking that it must be Marisa, but that I was sure this was not a movie I had ever seen listed for her before.

And then as soon as I saw the poster full size, it turned out to be an actress named Krista Nell!!! So close but yet so far!!
