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.”

Pre-probe J&B.

Alex Cord keeps a pint of J&B on file.

Daniela Surina knows she’d better not block Alex from that bottle in the background.

DeadareAlive5

Three bottles of J&B. We only drank two bottles while watching the movie.

DeadareAlive6

Etruscologists are known for drinking and driving.

DeadareAlive7

J&B often causes overacting.

Slimy blackmailing insect torturing caretaker J&B.

Alex Cord roughs up a bottle of J&B, a poor substitute for Samantha Eggar in our opinion.

We’re betting Alex brought his own bottle when he stopped by.

Verson Jetorix: “In the summer of ’72 I sneaked out of the house and rode my bike down to the Big Sky Drive-In in west Phoenix.  I climbed the fence and sat in the seats near the snack bar with a cold Coke for company.  What I saw was not a particularly good film but it was disturbingly bloody and violent to this 13 year-old.  Decades later the film hasn’t improved but it has its moments and a lot of J&B.”
