Part of Fashion in Film Festival: If Looks Could Kill
Sunday, May 6, 2012, 4:30 p.m.

Dir. Elio Petri. 1965, 92 mins. With Ursula Andres, Marcello Mastroianni. Costumes by Giulio Coltellacici. In a distant 21st century where the world lusts for violence, an international organization called “The Big Hunt” has legalized murder. Things get heated when the game’s top players become Victim and Hunter. Marcello Mastroianni stars as a blond-haired, sun-glassed impassive Victim and Ursula Andress as his beautiful Amazonian Hunter in what can only be described as an über-cool Italian 1960s pop art sci-fi comedy extravaganza, complete with an exciting electronic musical score and comic book architecture.

Free with Museum admission.
