The Cobra (1967)

Mario Sequi made The Tramplers, a spaghetti western with Charles Band’s father Albert before this Eurospy film, which is all about Captain Kelly (Dana Andrews, who shows up in plenty of other spy films like Bang You’re Dead, Spy In Your Eye, The Satan Bug and Innocent Bystanders).

Peter Martell from Franco’s Killer Barbys vs. Dracula and Death Walks at Midnight is in this, as is George Eastman, who we all know is the patron saint of B&S About Movies. Elisa Montes from Franco’s 99 Women and Anita Ekberg also show up. Ekberg is best known for La Dolce Vita, but she also shows up in Killer Nun and S*H*E*, as well as the Bob Dylan song “I Shall Be Free.” Dylan sang, “Well, my telephone rang, it would not stop / It’s President Kennedy calling me up / He said, “My friend, Bob What do we need to make the country grow?” / I said, “My friend, John, Brigitte Bardot, Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren.” / Country’ll grow.”
