a 1968 action film directed and co-written by Mario Bava, based on the Italian comic series Diabolik ... The film is about a criminal named Diabolik (John Phillip Law), who plans large-scale heists for his girlfriend Eva Kant (Marisa Mell). Diabolik is pursued by Inspector Ginko (Michel Piccoli), who blackmails the gangster Ralph Valmont (Adolfo Celi) into catching Diabolik for him.Terry-Thomas is Minister of the Interior, then Minister of Finance. Ennio Morricone did the music.
DVD Talk has a positive review. Time Out calls it "A delightfully outlandish comic strip directed by the master of the Italian B movie". Roger Ebert says, ""Danger: Diabolik" is a superior example of its type. Law is Diabolik, a supercriminal who lives underground in his electronic hideout with a sexy blond (Marisa Mell) and millions of dollars worth of gadgets."
As we settle into our social distancing, I'm thinking this looks like a good idea:
I'm not personally going to that extreme, but I am staying home except for weekly grocery trips. The online communities I'm a part of -blogging, FB, Twitter...- increase in significance in my life as this thing drags out. We're now under a shelter-in-place order here in Memphis, TN. Please join the T Stands for Tuesday gathering. We're naturally well over the recommended 6 feet apart.
