Danger: Diabolik "From Fumetti to Film" doc.

With it's hyper colorful palette and sixties psychedelic style, 1968's Danger: Diabolik allowed director Mario Bava a chance to turn the hugely popular Italian comic into a fast paced action movie. Anti-hero Diabolik (John Phillip Law) steals from the government and delights in it, all the while plotting his schemes from a technologically avant-garde underground compound assisted by his curvaceous gal pal Eva (Marisa Mell).

The documentary below offers a glimpse into the film's
back story / creation along with commentary from Stephen Bissette.
