This Saturday Night Special is episode seven from season three of the great 1960's TV show "It Takes A Thief."
For this episode they left Universal Studios in California and headed to Rome, Italy for a more authentic location!
"The Three Virgins Of Rome" has a real Eurotrash look and feel to it!
There's going to be an big outdoor exhibition of some famous paintings, so Al Mundy has been hired to stop them from getting stolen. His Father, a noted international art thief known as The Panther just happens to also be in town. Coincidence? Not likely!
I'm sure part of the reason this is such a good looking episode is because the Director is none other than Jack Arnold, the man who directed some of our all-time favourite monster movies like "It Came From Outer Space," "Creature From The Black Lagoon," "Tarantula," "The Incredible Shrinking Man," and "Monster On The Campus," to name a few!
Using International Dungeon fave Karin Dor as Angela was also a stroke of genius!
The pretty cool cast also includes Victor Buono as as Mr. Kent!
I read that Victor Buono at one point was close to 400 pounds in weight, and I believe it from the looks of him in this photo! He was also 6'3" tall!
They come in all sizes. On the complete other end of the scale, Davy (Satan's Harvest) Kaye, the gentleman in the middle, was only 4' 11."
Robert Wagner and Karin Dor make quite an attractive couple!
I really think you could plug Joachim Fuchsberger and Natalie Wood into the same two roles and get away with it! Wouldn't that be interesting?
Just in case you wondered, there are no real "Three Virgins Of Rome" paintings!
Now that is a tricky hiding place!
Time for a word from our sponsor, "Spa-Fon" cleaning products. If you can't get it out with "Spa-Fon," it's permanent!"
So here's where it gets a little slightly unbelievable!
They float "The Three Virgins" away with helium balloons!
And land them safely in this field!
Here's the cover of a great 7" 45 single by pianist Dave Grusin!
I didn't have any "It Takes A Thief" music to listen to, so I listened to this killer soundtrack from the movie "Robbery," written by John Keating to get me in the mood!
No matter the role, Karin always looks freakin' amazing!
Lord Litter in Berlin was the one who told me about this great episode, so, from the both of us,
