Spy Vibers in the LA area: Stop by Quentin Tarantino's Beverly Cinema tomorrow, Saturday December 30th, to catch Mario Bava's Danger Diabolik on the Big Screen! Not only is this a rare chance to see the 1968 classic, but they will be screening an original 35mm print from Tarantino's own collection! Get "Deep Deep Down"!" Film starts at 11:59PM. From the press release: "The psychedelic, swinging ‘60s super-crime caper Danger: Diabolik is a colorful jolt of James-Bond-meets-Batman high camp adventure from legendary director Mario Bava, composer Ennio Morricone and Barbarella producer Dino De Laurentiis! Based on the popular Italian comics, Diabolik (John Phillip Law) is a suave master criminal out for all he can take, seduce or get away with. With his lovely partner (Marisa Mell) on his arm, he’ll have to stay one step ahead of the police with an arsenal of clever gadgets, especially when a jealous underworld kingpin (Thunderball’s Adolfo Celi) teams with the law (Michel Piccoli, Terry-Thomas) to help catch him." More info here. Find out why Danger Diabolik was #1 in Spy Vibe's list of top-ten set designs here. I highly recommend events at the Beverly. One of my favorite outings was to go to LA to see the new Man From U.N.C.L.E. film with fellow writers and collectors, and the evening finished up at the Beverly for a TRIPLE FEATURE of U.N.C.L.E. 1960s movies. And per the theater's mission, only original film prints were screened. I like their style! Enjoy!
