Fellini : the Sixties by Manoah Bowman( Book )

"Fellini: The Sixties is a stunning photographic journey through the director's most iconic classics: La Dolce Vita, 81/2, Juliet of the Spirits, and Fellini Satyricon. Carefully selected imagery from the Independent Visions photographic archive, many published here for the first time, illuminate these films as they have never been seen before, and reveal fascinating details of the director's working style and ebullient personality. With more than 150 photographs struck from original negatives, these images spring to life from the page with the depth and quality of the films themselves. Complemented with insightful essays from contemporary writers, Fellini: The Sixties is a true testament to the man and his work, a remarkable compendium of the legendary filmmaker's greatest achievements"--Jacket

Dead eyes of London( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When movie audiences caught this double bill in the mid-'60s, they were doubtless unaware that they were witnessing remarkable entries in the Italian gothic and German "krimi" genres. Based on a story by the legendary Edgar Wallace, "Dead Eyes of London" is filled with stylistic flourishes which would influence such directors as Dario Argento. Klaus Kinski stars in this chilling yarn about a series of perplexing murders involving wealthy, middle-aged men and a sinister sect of blind London residents with a grisly secret. Scotland Yard is baffled, but soon the ghastly truth is revealed! Then scream legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday) stars in The Ghost, a marvelous, atmospheric shocker from acclaimed director Riccardo Freda (The Horrible Dr. Hichcock). Stuck in an unhappy marriage with a wheelchair-bound, occult-worshipping husband, Margaret begins an affair with the handsome family doctor and concocts a murderous scheme that turns into full-blown terror!
