I Maniaci (1964)
In cult and exploitation cinematic circles, Lucio Fulci will perhaps always be identified with bizarre horror titles (If you've ever wanted to see a zombie fight a shark, may I recommend his 1979 effort Zombie). In the stream of 60's and 70's genre cinema that's often parading before my eyes and in my brain, I've found that I enjoy Fulci's earlier comedic efforts more. The man was a gifted director for farce...which doesn't explain the often farcical leaps in logic that his horror titles usually contain. Anyhow, this quickie sketch was grabbed from a still from his 1964 collection of comic sketches, I Maniaci.
