Classic Eurospy Screenings In Los Angeles
As part of "Mods and Rockers," their awesome annual festival of Sixties movies, the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA will screen the greatest Bond knock-off of all time, Deadlier Than the Male on Thursday, July 26. It will be a double bill with the ultra-rare 1966 Eurospy flick Lightning Bolt. Deadlier Than the Male (1966) stars the luscious Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina as a pair of bikini-clad assassins and Richard Johnson as a Sixtified (or Bondified) Bulldog Drummond. Nigel Green (of Ipcress File fame) plays the villain. Lightning Bolt (like Thunderball... get it?) stars Anthony Iseley and is directed by Antonio Margheriti. I've never seen it, so I can't comment on it, but I'm eagerly looking forward to the opportunity!
