1967. Marisa Mell and John Philip Law embrace on a divan under a shower of banknotes from a recent heist. It’s a scene from Diabolik, one of those cool and flippant 1960s films that inspired Austin Powers. The clapperboard to the left shows that this is a candid shot. The caption on the back of the photo reads:
Director Mario Bava is currently shooting the film “Diabolik”, a Dino De Laurentiis production for Paramount release, starring John Philip Law as Diabolik and Marisa Mell as his sexy playmate Eva Kant.
The scene shows Diabolik and Eva Kant celebrating the victory of their last theft by making love among the million dollar notes they have just stolen.
