BOLOGNESE RECIPE
Avelli treats moviegoers to a double helping of his art.


We recently shared a poster painted by Italian artist Tino Avelli and wanted to revisit his work. He was prolific, painting great promos for such well known films as The Man with the Golden Gun and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. We also recently saw a tarot deck he painted going for $3,000 at an auction site. We predict... we won't be buying that.
 
Above you see two Avelli efforts for the 1975 film La bolognese. Usually we have an English title for you, but this one was never shown in the U.S. The Italian title refers to any person from the city of Bologna. We've seen the movie, and it's a comedy, so we won't get into it. Plus, it's not funny anyway. It's the type of thing where star Franca Gonella rides her bike with the wind blowing her skirt up and everyone she passes ends up in a ditch from staring too hard at her white panties. Big laughs.
 
Not that we're above anything gratuitous, whether nudity, violence, or whatever. Vintage genre fiction is all about adding heaping helpings of fan service to most every narrative, therefore we are too. To prove it we've uploaded a nice shot of Gonella below—without her white panties. And you'd been thinking, "Hmm... not a lot of nudity on Pulp intl. lately." Solved. We should add that Gonella made some crime and horror movies, so maybe she'll return in the future.

Femmes Fatales Oct 1 2019
BRITT-ISH AUTHORITY
The golden girl with the gun.


Swedish actress Britt Ekland was one of our early femmes fatales. We posted her more than ten years ago. Today we're bringing her back, again in character as CIA agent Mary Goodnight from the 1974 James Bond hit The Man with the Golden Gun, but in three new poses. And of course she looks amazing in all of them. She was one of the Bond series' most popular so-called “Bond girls” for good reason. See the original shot here.

Nobody does it better.

1961—Rudolph Nureyev Defects from Soviet Union
Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev defects at Le Bourget airport in Paris.
