Starring a seventeen-year-old beauty-contest winner, DEADLY SWEET is a most unusual crime story. In the film, a French actor finds his business contact lying murdered on the floor. Rather than call the police, he decides to protect the young woman at the scene and nail down the true killers, putting him on a collision course with the London underworld. DEADLY SWEET leads us through a mind-bending series of pop-art visuals by renowned erotic cartoonist Guido Crepax with split screens (and triple split screens) and the seductive rock score by Armando Trovajoli. Filmmaker Tinto Brass (who later gained fame for his soft-core erotic), wrote the screenplay in 1967, loosely adapted from a novel by Sergio Donati, as an outrageous attempt to turn the crime genre on its head. It can be said that with this film, Cinema Fumetti (comic-book movies) was invented prior to the more known DANGER: DIABOLIK and BARBARELLA.
