Part of the program

The first of Lenzi’s four lurid thrillers with leading lady Carroll Baker (Baby Doll), who had left America for Italy and was accordingly cast here as an expatriate; newly widowed, her mourning period gets spiced up by the arrival of younger swingers Lou Castel (Fists in the Pocket) and Colette Descombes—but their partying soon takes a sinister turn. Future auteur Bertrand Tavernier, himself on an Italian sojourn, was assistant director.

Please note: the print we will be screening is faded red.
