Il Fiore dai petali d'acciaio (The Flower with Petals of Steel)
It took me quite some time to track down an english subbed copy of Gianfranco Piccoli's 1973 thriller Il Fiore dai petali d'acciaio. I'm generally quite fond of Carroll Baker's work, so I was hoping this might be a forgotten classic. It wasn't. It was rather dull and uninspired entry in the genre. One for the giallo completist only. The poster by Ezio Tarantelli looks pretty good though.
