POW-POW-PAOLI! Fireworks Start Early with New Luciana Paoli Pin-Ups!

Fans of luscious Luciana Paoli, who played the lover and partner-in-crime of the King of Crime in the SADISTIK chronicles, will be happy to hear we've posted a virtual Lucianapalooza (not to be confused with Bond girl Luciana Paluzzi) of her pin-ups on our site.
Luciana appeared in many magazine photo spreads and some incredibly odd films but she is most dear to many as Dana, the inseparable companion to the Diabolikal Super-Kriminal. On the Luciana Paoli Actors Gallery, we have just posted some new inspiring images of the Queen of Crime. See rare photos of Luciana from American and Italian pin-up magazines, films and her role as another sidekick, Eva, in the Lord X photo novel.

In the next few weeks we will be posting some more saucy pin ups of Luciana from the film Casanova '70 she did with Marcello Mastroianni, and pictures from another photo novel series she was in, the 007-ish James Bix!

While the new documentary (see below) will shed light on long kept secrets about the Imperceptible One, the biggest mysteries left is... Whatever became of Luciana Paoli? Despite some incredible detective work, the director of the documentary has found no trace of her. If anybody has any leads on Luciana or her kin, please contact us!

Our first posting offers the international exclusive on a new movie that will excite acolytes of the King of Crime... and make new fans! Italian director SS-Sunda is producing an incredible documentary called The Diabolikal Super Kriminal! SS-Sunda has does the almost impossible by rounding up interviews with the cast and crew of the original photo novels! Hard-core fans of Sadistik and Euro-Trash films of the 1960s and 70s will drool over conversations with such legendary actors as Rico Boido, Erna Scheurer, Gabriella Giorgelli, the son of director Rosario Borelli and many others!

Perhaps most stunning is that the greatest mystery surrounding the series is solved... Who was behind the Mask of Death? Rumors abounded that director Borelli, a photo novel star himself, portrayed the skeleton-clad killer. In an interview, Borelli dispelled such notions and claimed even he didn't know who it was. Well, it can now be told that the true identity of the Genius of Crime is... revealed in the documentary! Here's another exclusive: A recent photo of the actor who played the Diabolikal Super Kriminal wearing the original mask!

The film also promises vintage 8mm film from the original publishers and recreations of the photo shoots. The documentary has a planned December release in Italy. Comicfix, the publisher of Sadistik, will do all it can to make sure this gets an American release!
