LE SPIE UCCIDONO IN SILENZIO - "Spies Strike Silently" (1966)

It's another Wild and Wooly Spy Guy Wednesday in The Dungeon!
Pretty cool poster!!

Honestly, before I started this blog, I had no idea there were so damn many spy and secret agent movies made in the 60's, and I still don't think we're close to the end!

So first off, to get in the mood for "Le Spie Uccidono In Silenzio," aka "Spies Strike Silently," kick back, and have yourself a drink or two!

Then after you've had about three or four strong drinks, take this vision test!

"Le Spie Uccidono In Silenzio" is a film about patterns, and a crazy but very industrious guy named Rashid, who literally wants to take over the minds of every person in the world, one by one!

A lot of it was shot in Lebanon and Turkey!
I like the architecture!

Spying on the spies is not good for your health!

She wasn't the only one to find that out!

The game of "Twister" is always more exciting when a knife is involved!

Pretty good when you can work a knife in the back and a portable phonograph into the same shot!

I've put up a lot of pictures of strange phones on this blog, but I think this one takes the cake!

Anything with this many shifters on it has got to be powerful!

The Mind Control room of the supreme megalomaniac, Rashid!!

It looks to me like this jacket is made of the same material used in the Mind Control room!
Lang Jeffries is Michael Drum!
 Lang was another one of those good looking guys from North America who went to Italy to carve out a career. He was in the Chubby Checker feature "Don't Knock The Twist" before he headed overseas! Besides Sword and Sandal and Spy movies, Lang was also the star of "Mission Stardust!"
Lang left this world in 1987 at the young age of 56.

Check out the wheels on the Boss's car! It looks like it's running on two spare tires!
I guess since they were going to destroy it anyway......

She's actually much prettier dead than she was alive!

Andrea (The Witch's Curse, Kriminal, Argoman, Danger: Diabolik) Bosic as Rashid, does his best impersonation of Carl Jaffé!

It's a bit of a gamble, but in my humble opinion,
 "Spies Strike Silently" is worth giving a watch if you've got nothing better to do! It's definitely not the worst spy movie I've ever seen!

TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: 'Pain Killer' - 1984

Here's an episode I remember seeing back in 1984, the story goes like this... Harvey Turman suffers from both back pain and his nagging wife Nadine. Dr. Roebuck finds nothing physically wrong with Harvey, concludes that the problem is caused by latent anger toward Nadine, and suggests uxoricide (the killing of one's wife) to get rid of all of Harvey's pain!

It stars Farley (SO SWEET, SO DEAD) Granger as Doctor Roebuck, Peggy (THE HATHAWAYS) Cass as Nadine Turman, Lou (IRMA LA DOUCE) Jacobi as Harvey Turman and Fay (THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT) Sappington as Mrs. Tracey.

Here are the Turmans, Harvey and Nadine. They are the typical eighties married couple, each living in their little worlds and of course, they argue a lot after years of marriage.

Suddenly, Harvey's back goes out on him after he goes into the kitchen... Nadine thinks it's funny, what a pal she is!

So, she brings Harvey a blanket and turns off the light, a lightning storm is moving in. As he's dozing off, Harvey sees a bizarre figure in the window, like, what the Hell!!

Nadine takes Harvey to the doctor for his back. Harvey tells the doctor that he was the person he saw in the window the night before, but, the doc tells him that it was just the result of being in severe pain!

Harvey gets a medical care package full of goodies, he shows it off for Nadine, who in not impressed. She thinks he's over doing the whole thing... Love the training bra!

Harvey goes back to the doctor, still in pain. The doc runs some heavy shit past him, he tells Harvey that if Nadine was out of his life, his pain would go away. Harvey doesn't know what to believe...

But, wouldn't you know it, Harvey's laid up on the couch, but after he gets a phone call telling him that Nadine was struck by a car and is dead, he gets off the couch and his back is now perfectly fine!!

The first thing Harvey does when he gets home is polish off Nadine's box of chocolates!..

Then, the doorbell rings... It's Mrs. Tracy, she was the one that struck Nadine with her car, she wants to apologize. As she leaves, she says "I had no choice!" Harvey is confused yet again, you know, what did she mean by that?

Harvey goes back to the doctor to tell him the good news, he feels great now! Unfortunately, the doc hands him the address of the person he want Harvey to knock off, otherwise, his pain will return, but worse than before. Harvey wants to know... Who.. Are.. YOU?!!

Well, the doctor just smiles and laughs his way to the end! Tune again on Wednesday for more weird junk for you, here, at The Dungeon!

I FANTASTICI 3 $UPERMEN - "The Three Fantastic Supermen" (1967)

Tonight's Saturday Night Special is the epitome of the Italian 7G school of filmmaking!

"I Fantastici 3 $upermen" or "The Three Fantastic Supermen," is a movie about two crooks and one F.B.I. agent who are going to have to save the world from an evil sumbitch with a machine that can duplicate anything including gold, money, and people, but there's only one problem, there's usually some defect or another!

The three supermen, Aldo (The Wild Wild Planet) Canti, Brad (King Of Kong Island) Harris, and Tony (Kommissar X) Kendall don't really have any super powers, but what they do have are bulletproof suits, suction cup and/or spring loaded boots, and a combination of fighting and circus skills above reproach!

As far as the 7G's go, first off you've got GUYS, like muscle man Brad Harris!

If one of Brad isn't enough for you, how about three?

Do the Stomp!

Number 2 is GIRLS!

Lots and lots of pretty girls!

Number 3 is GUNS!

"Don't move or I'll shoot you!"

Number 4 is a twofer, GADGETS......

.....And GIZMOS!

Number 5 is GOLD!

Number 6 is GAGS!

And number 7 is pure GROOVIE-NESS!

And if that ain't enough, the portly, disgusting, child killing villain is named 

And if you don't believe me, you can check it out for yourself, because "I Fantastici 3 $upermen"streams in it's entirety on YouTube!
