I spent a small fortune at the weekend picking up a few more Klaus Kinski bits and pieces. I think I’ve now got 97 films (which means I need to get more reviews done as soon as possible!) and my collection of photos, posters and books is increasing rapidly too.
Here’s a few things I found this weekend:
Klaus Kinski and Alain Delon in Mort d’un pourri (dir Georges Lautner, 1977), which I just recently found with English subs (although I’ve not even watched it yet!).
Here’s Klaus playing with a toy bird and looking slightly demented whilst he’s at it!
That wonderful image of Klaus in the rather brilliant Crawlspace (dir David Schmoeller, 1986)
Klaus with Max 404 in Android (dir Aaron Lipstadt, 1982), which I really must get reviewed soon. A very enjoyable film.
I love this image of Klaus with Eddi Arent and Anthony Newlands on set of Circus of Fear (dir John Llewellyn Moxey, 1966). Sorry about the streaky patches on the scan! I need to add to my review of Circus of Fear as I now have the Blue Underground restored full length version of the film; so much to do to get all these films reviewed…
Klaus in the artwork for La mano che nutre la morte (dir Sergio Garrone, 1974), which is another one for reviewing…
Klaus Kinski in a Hamlet moment, for some reason or other flicking the V!
Klaus looking world-weary in the wonderful Fruits of Passion (dir Shuji Terayama, 1981) – this is one I started reviewing a little while ago but it needs some serious attention as, for once, there is actually something interesting to say about this film, which can’t be said for the vast majority of Klaus’ films unfortunately. However enjoyable they are.
You know me, I like Klaus. I also like men who wear glasses. Klaus in glasses – yum yum. This is Klaus with Heinz Drache in Der Rächer (dir Karl Anton, 1960), which I don’t yet have in my collection – must find it soon…
Klaus in the Jack the Ripper (dir Jess Franco, 1976) artwork. Thank goodness, this is one I have already reviewed on here!
Klaus in Jesus Christus Erlöser (dir Peter Geyer, 2008). All together now: “Ich will dir nachfolgen, wohin du auch gehst!”
Colour and b/w Nosferatu the Vampyre (dir Werner Herzog, 1979).
A fabulous image of Klaus in Nosferatu a Venezia (dir Klaus Kinski, Augusto Caminito, Luigi Cozzi, Mario Caiano, Maurizio Lucidi, 1988). Whatever anyone else thinks of this film, I think it’s fabulous – and, o no, I need to review this one as well…
Do I spend most of my time defending Klaus’ films? I will definitely defend this one, I love Kinski Paganini (dir Klaus Kinski, 1989) and yah boo sucks to Werner Herzog and anyone else who said it would never work!
Klaus Kinski and Stéphane Audran in Pill of Death (dir Jean Delannoy, 1970), the film with many, many names. I think I may have reviewed it on here under the title Only the Cool, but I can’t swear to it!
Only Klaus could play a gay guy in a film and get a scene where he’s lying naked with a big breasted woman and sucking his thumb! Klaus in the fabulous L’important c’est d’aimer (dir Andrzej Zulawski, 1975), which also needs to be reviewed…
After seeing this image of Klaus, I really wanted to see him in Nella stretta morsa del ragno (dir Antonio Margheriti, 1971). Not enough Klaus in the film for my liking but he does look rather wonderful as Edgar Allen Poe. This posting of so many images is just reminding me how many films I have yet to review – will my work here ever be done?!!
No Klaus images here, but some information about Our Man in Marrakesh (dir Don Sharp, 1966) in which he makes a short but sweet appearance.
Another The Little Drummer Girl (dir George Roy Hill, 1984) poster to add to my collection! I love that this one says Diane Keaton in big letters and yet it has a bigger picture of Klaus on it. I must watch the film some time…
Look at Klaus’ face in this Code Name: Wild Geese (dir Antonio Margheriti, 1984) poster!
That’s all for today, and I haven’t forgotten that I’m supposed to be writing up the Love and Money full film review. That’s in case any of you are actually waiting for it after the recent photo story posting!
