Barbara Steele is so smokin hot...

Great image, I love the Italian poster art from this period...

Didn't ya know that Skinny'd pop up for this one?

Very striking, even startling poster. Good use of colors.

If you wanna see a real laughfest (similar to the Capt. America cheesefest flick) check out Bava's ode to secret agents in his film: Danger: Diabolik. They have it on Netflix. MST3K did their version of it, which is where I caught it. There was a comic book series too but I don't know which came first?

Mob- I imd'd Barbara Steele and in the pics they had, she looked kinda weird. Maybe, I should investigate further.

Johnny- The use of colours is def the most interesting thing about it. If it wasn't so huge(55'x78' I'm guessing) I might be tempted to buy it.

Vox- You're not selling me with that comparison, sir.

Steele is very harsh featured, so she'd be an acquired taste, but I think she's hot in a kinda strong dominatrix way.

The Danger:Diabolik film is based on the comics if memory serves, and was also the inspiration for the Body Movin' vid by the Beasties, if that gives you more of a reference point.

Ah, a little.
