The Insatiables

Insatiables

She doesn’t manage to divert interest from the J&B for long…

Verson Jetorix: “Murder mystery set in the high-powered, decadent and corrupt business world. Great tunes, lots of nudity, good cast (Robert Hoffman, Dorthy Malone, John Ireland, etc.), and plenty of ambience with LA exteriors and Italian interiors.”

Despite Salvador Huguet’s insistence that she grab the J&B, Dagmar Lassander lets it pass and is forced to drink Chivas for the rest of the film.

Verson Jetorix: “Dagmar Lassander and Susan Scott make a beautiful pair of peacocks in their high fashion duds. Not the giallo that some disappointed reviewers wanted, this top notch Euro-ambience entertainment is about sexual politics, mysterious motives and washing down loads of tranquilizers with hard liquor. Great Morricone score, fun set design, and outstanding cinematography. Stylish and twisted, this comes highly recommended.”

Final Curtain

Final Curtain 1

Always remove remove your shoes before approaching a bedside J&B.

Final Curtain 2

This bottle stays in frame for nearly a full minute.

Verson Jetorix: “Dreamy, unconvincing giallo with Anne Heywood’s amnesia victim stalked by her husband’s killer (Telly Savalas). Pretty good score but the film lacks focus and suspense. But it has J&B.”

The great Franco Nero keeps his eye on the road while tilting back some J&B.

Verson Jetorix: “Beautifully photographed giallo with the great Franco Nero as a drunken journalist investigating a series of murders amongst people he knows.  Gorgeous Silvia Monti is Franco’s ex.  Ira von Furstenberg pulls a Kinski but gives it up.  With Wolfgang “Dr. Mabuse” Preiss, and babes Agostina Belli and Pamela Tiffin.  A clear winner, this made my top 100.”

Elisa Mainardi and Rosemary Dexter ignore a bottle of J&B.

Verson Jetorix: “Rosemary Dexter searches for a missing friend, Horst Frank, in exotic Italian locations encountering Alida Valli, Adolfo Celi, Franco Ressel, and J&B. Mario Caiano’s fever dream giallo is interesting and amusing enough to remain in rotation.”
