SALVARE LA FACCIA - Benedetto Ghiglia/Rossano Brazzi - "Psychout For Murder" (1969)

Welcome to a new feature in The Dungeon called Eurotrash/Giallo Wednesday! I'll be planning on doing this on a regular basis in the future, at least once a year!

 Watching "Psychout For Murder" is kind of like getting a colonoscopy! You don't know what to expect at first, then the next thing you know it's over, and you don't know what happened. It wasn't a bad thing, but then again, it's not something you want to do again real soon!
Why the English title is "Psychout For Murder," I have no clue, but that's what suckered me into watching it!

 Is it sex, is it love, or "is it just confusion?" It's up to you to figure it out!

 It seems that leg belonged to a member of a high society big business family member, and there she was, with a common person! Shame, Shame!!

 Although this is an Italian movie, the star, Adrienne Larussa as the persecuted Licia, is an American actress who spent a lot of time on the sets of soap operas with names like "General Hospital," and "Days Of Our Lives!" She was also in the David Bowie film, "The Man Who Fell To Earth!"

 I like sub-titles! Some times, like right here, they explain a lot!

So they ship Licia off to the funny farm!

Can they cure her of being a depraved sex addict?

 I think these toys explain the whole story!

 She learned her lessons well, and now she has crazy down to perfection!

 Great gas station shot circa 1969!

 I read about comparisons of Adrienne Larussa to Soledad Miranda, and that's something that probably can't be denied!

Things are starting to slow down some, so it must be time to bring on the band! You'd probably have to ask composer Benedetto (Secret Agent Super Dragon) Ghiglia who these cool cats were, but I don't think that's gonna happen since he passed on back in 2012 at the age of 90!
 Here's what it sounds like when this party is going on! 

 Classy Rossano Brazzi is Licia's oh so upstanding, but hyper hypocritical Dad!
Rossano also wrote and directed this film, and it was produced by his younger brother Oscar Brazzi! It's just a family affair all the way around!

 Licia decides to put on a little poolside performance for her sleazy brother-in-law!

 Now THAT is a cool record player!

 One more long hallway, and I'm outta here!

See what can happen? They took a nice girl, and turned her into a monster!
Politics as usual!
