MINIKILLERS PART TWO - "Macabre Heroin Flamenco" (1969)

You know what they say about "one good turn" so this Saturday Night Special is about three of the other "Minikillers" shorts. There's not a lot to go on here, but I found these Super 8 box photos that actually have names on them, so by trying to match the pictures, I think that first one I showed you last week was this one titled "Operation: Costa Brava."
The second one was this one titled "Heroin."

Diana Rigg's nameless character might not be Emma Peel, but she's definitely doing some spying for some reason!

She's watching some people on a boat and just chilling on the beach when it suddenly gets very weird!
Like out of nowhere, she's kind of surrounded by mannequins!
The one standing behind her is extra casual, and reading a newspaper to try and look normal.
All the dummies fall on her, and a buried net she was laying on scoops her up and drags her out to that boat she was spying on!

She escapes from the net, but also loses the covering she had on!

Diana Rigg was a national treasure and in 1994, she was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth!

She finds a slicker to slip into, and steals the hoods car to get away!
Before getting back to her own car, she parks the bad guys car in a 'No Parking" area so they get a ticket!

Each one of these silent shorts is approximately ten minutes long, and I think the next one is this one called "Flamenco," but she's wearing a dress in this box collage that she doesn't wear until the next episode, so who really knows?
That ten minute length kind of messes with the theory of showing them in the gas station.

In "Flamenco," the boys with the binoculars are back!
 They leave one of those creepy dolls in her car, and this one has a bomb in it!

I guess they didn't remember she had a rear view mirror!
These bozos aren't too hard to outfox!

She unceremoniously tosses henchman Moisés Augusto Rocha off the edge of a small cliff!
If a Deutsche Mark was about equal to a dollar, I'd say it's safe to say that not many poor folk were watching these at 29.99 DM each. 
"Macabre" starts off with the boys waiting for her with an open coffin!

After the last picture, you'll find a link where you can watch them all yourself. It just might be the only damn thing good that happened this whole year!

How is it even possible?
