OBNOXIOUS BUT UNPRETENTIOUS SELF-PROMOTION DEPARTMENT:
We just got a call from Luciana Paluzzi to say that the first part of her interview in issue #8 of Cinema Retro was "the best and most accurate I've ever seen." Quite a compliment considering she has given thousands of interviews to the international press since starring as the sexy black widow assassin Fiona in the 1965 James Bond classic Thunderball. For those of you who are still stragglers, if you subscribe today you can enjoy Part 1 of Luciana's exclusive interview in which she relates some wonderful stories about her early days in the Italian cinema as well as working on cult movies like Muscle Beach Party. In this first installment, she also discusses how she got the role in Thunderball. In the second part, which will run in issue #9, she relates the full story of starring in the film. Issue #8 is now almost sold out and is available only as part of our three issue subscription package (see subscription section for details.) It is no longer for sale as a single issue. If the lovely Luciana isn't enough to make you subscribe, then consider this issue also includes tributes to Our Man Flint, Danger: Diabolik!, Easy Rider and our latest interview installment with David McCallum. Plus you get a cool exclusive CD packed with rare radio spots from films of the 1960s and 1970s- oh, and we'll drive to your house and do some light cleaning up on Thursday mornings.
We also confess that we ran this entire blurb not only to separate you from your hard-earned dollars, but to also run a couple of sexy photos of Luciana.
