Lo Strano vizio della Signora Wardh (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh)
Since I've been slacking a bit this week, I thought I'd make up for it by posting the two great looking alternate posters for Sergio Martino's Lo Strano vizio della Signora Wardh.
The first of the four (!) gialli Martino directed between 1971 and 1972. They were all produced by his brother Luciano Martino and featured screenplays by Ernesto Gastaldi. This excellent thriller starred the lovely Edwige Fenech, George Hilton, Ivan Rassomiv and Alberto de Mendoza. All of which would appear in different constellations in several of Martino's later films.
The top poster is made by G.Nistri and features a kaleidoscope view of Hilton that brings back memories of one of the films effective nightmare sequences. The beautiful poster below is from a re-release of the film in 1978. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any info on who did the art-work.
