Above, an issue of Midnight published forty-six years ago today with a cover photo of a man who’s looked better. The claim that he’s a father hanged and left for vultures by his son is probably fiction, but the cadaver is genuine. Midnight editors seemed to pride themselves on obtaining real gore shots. The 1960s were the heyday of gore documentaries like Mondo Cane, so there was public interest in the subject, strangely. See many more issues of Midnight by clicking its keyword below.

This Sandro Symeoni poster is a mighty fine piece of art for what is basically just a low budget documentary about the sexual mores of England. Back in the ’60s a lot of these types of films were produced after the success of the 1962 Italian shockumentary Mondo Cane. This one is Italian as well, directed by Vittotio de Sisti, and released under the name Inghilterra nuda in Italy, and L’Angleterre nue in France. It premiered in those countries today in 1969.
