Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jul 27th at 7:30pm for Danger Diabolik at the Brattle Theatre . Look for Howard wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
This rarely screened super-thief flick features B-movie fave John Phillip Law in a starring role as Diabolik, an international man of mystery who steals from the rich toÂ… wellÂ… keep it for himself. Yes, Diabolik is a thief, pure-and-simple, but he is perhaps one of the hippest robbers ever committed to celluloid. Sort of like To Catch A Thief on steroids, DANGER: DIABOLIK features great locations, beautiful women, fabulous riches, and a cop who will stop at nothing to catch his man. Directed by the immortal Italian schlock master Mario Bava and featuring a devilishly charming performance by Law, this movie is a colorful, mod confection not to be missed on the big screen.
