I’ll never forget the moment at he end of the interview when he started singing “Die Gedanken sind frei” and many of the German-language invites joining in.
Fornicon (1969) [above] is a collection of 60 prints of scenes of funny machine-aided sadomasochistic male domination. When I say machine-aided, think Rube Goldberg machine. Box sets of these prints are being sold for as high as 3,000$. Books can be had for as little as ten dollars.
Via research on the King Mob Echo magazine, which led me to Chris Gray which led me to Conrad Rooks which led me to Chappaqua (in which Rita had a part), it has come to my attention that Rita Renoir has died.
Rita Renoir was a French exotic dancer, sex symbol, nobrow figure and actress.
María José Cantudo was the actress who was first seen nude on Spanish cinema screens in La trastienda. While researching Grau, it also came to my attention that Cantudo recorded a song called “Desnuda me”, Spanish for “Unrobe me”.
In the part on Spanish horror of the documentary Eurotika!, Jorge Grau is featured on 18:50 [above].
Both were film stills. The first was from Succubus (1968) directed Jess Franco, the second was from Castle of Blood (1964), directed Antonio Margheriti.
Today, the full movies of these stills are available on YouTube:
From Castle of Blood I was able to find the exact location of the film still in question. The woman who is wearing the translucent crinoline and who bares her perky breasts appears to be Sylvia Sorrente (Elsi in the film).
From Succubus I was unable to track the still. However, I was able to get a wider shot. La Reynaud appears to be stripping for a pianist seen from the rear in the back.
