More publicity brochures

Here are some more of those fantastic French publicity brochures. First up is one from yet another Carroll Baker giallo, Umberto Lenzi's outstanding Orgasmo (1968):


The inside of the brochure - with a plot summary in French. Notice how Baker's character is called Janet Fulton here. In both the English and Italian versions the character's name is Catherine West.


Here's another nice brochure for an obscure film, Carlo Infascelli and Antonio Racioppi's decamerotic film Decameronissimo (1972) with the stunning Malisa Longo, Maurizio Merli, Orchidea De Santis, Giacomo Rizzo, Carlos De Carvalho and others.

A naked Malisa Longo riding a horse graces the brochure cover



Again, there are lots of nice pictures inside but the best part is seeing a young Maurizio Merli (without his trademark moustache) as a cheerful troubadour:



And, finally, Riccardo Freda's excellent Double Face (1969) under its French title Liz et Helen. Disappointingly, this isn't really a brochure. It's simply some good-looking poster work on the front and a synopsis with no pictures on the back. Still, this image of the unforgettable scene of Christiane Krüger and the mysterious veiled lady is a treasure in itself:

Orchidea de Santis, attrice tugliese, prorompente avvenenza, donna colta e intelligente, di gran classe.

I've only seen Orchidea De Santis in about five films (so far) but she is indeed a very beautiful and classy lady who brings a lot of charm to the films she appears in.
