Claudia Cardinale

Claudia Cardinale, in 1967 she appeared in Una rosa per tutti (A Rose for Everyone) and in Alexander Mackendrick‘s sex farce Don’t Make Waves opposite Tony Curtis. Although occasional funny moments were noted, Don’t Make Waves was generally panned by the critics and the lack of chemistry with co-star Curtis was highlighted.Leonard Maltin, though, described the film as “a gem”.

New York tourist Tony Curtis falls asleep on a Southern California beach on his first night in the West and wakes up to The New Phantasmagoria–catamarans, surfers (including a dog), bodybuilders, acrobats, motorcycle chicken races, a nut fishing in the shallows . . .

This is the ’60s American Dream: youth and beauty and money and sex in Southern California. Go west, all men.

Village of the Damned

Village of the Damned (1960 film)

The inhabitants of the British village of Midwich suddenly fall unconscious, as does anyone entering the village. The military establishes a cordon around Midwich and sends in a man wearing a gas mask, but he, too, falls unconscious and is pulled back with rope. The man awakens and reports experiencing a cold sensation just before passing out. The pilot of a military reconnaissance plane is contacted and asked to investigate. When he flies below 5,000 feet, he loses consciousness and the plane crashes. A five-mile exclusion zone around the village is established for all aircraft. After approximately four hours, the villagers regain consciousness, and all are apparently unaffected.
