Venere in pelliccia [Venus in Furs, Devil in the Flesh]

N.p. N.p., 1969. Two vintage oversize borderless double weight color photographs of actress Laura Antonelli from the 1969 Italian film. One photo shows Antonelli in an ecstatic semi-nude pose, the other with her completely controlled, in elaborate chain-mail bikini, wielding a riding crop (though in a bedroom, so, no horses). Latter photo with the stamp of Cine-Street on the verso, along with a dealer label.

A sexploitation film made by the prolific Italian director Dallamano, better known for his crime and giallo work. Released in Germany in 1969, but due to censorship woes, not released in Italy until 1973. Not to be confused with Jess Franco's 1969 film of the same name.

Based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's infamous 1870 novella. A young couple pursues a decidedly perverse lifestyle involving furs and voyeurism, based on childhood experiences of punishment for bad deeds.

Set in Istanbul.

Both photos 9.5 x 11.75 inches. Very Good plus.
