Hidden gems from the past: Italian spy-movies of the '60s You may have heard the soundtracks, now get ready for the technicolor extravaganza of sixties Italy Italian cinema has always been very quick to imitate famous Hollywood films.
When an American film became popular in Italy, Cinecittà - the Italian Hollywood - produced a series of films with the same theme, the same atmosphere, often with a similar title, but obviously with a lower budget. In the '50s, after the success of Hollywood biblical films such as Ben Hur of The Ten Commandments, Italian producers invaded the cinemas with biblical B-movies.

DVD Review: Man In A Suitcase: Set 1 Man in a Suitcase is a Sixties British spy show from ITC, a production company that churned out slick adventure series with some regularity, including The Saint, The Baron and Danger Man.
In fact, Man in a Suitcase was in part commissioned to fill the void left by Danger Man, which was still a hit when star Patrick McGoohan abandoned it in order to turn his attention to what’s likely the most famous of all ITC series today (though short-lived in its time), The Prisoner. Many of the key personnel from Danger Man (known in the U.S. as Secret Agent) transitioned straight to Man in a Suitcase. Like most of its ITC brethren, Man in a Suitcase featured a solitary hero who traveled the world (mainly Europe) on the fringes of the intelligence community getting into trouble wherever he went.

Movie Review: Kriminal (1966) and The Mark of Kriminal (1968) Unlike the morally flawed but heroic Argoman, or even the lawbreaking antihero Diabolik, Kriminal is just plain bad.
Diabolik loves and cares for Eva above all else; Kriminal cares only for himself. He is a completely amoral, utterly corrupt psychopath who puts on a skintight black ninja suit with a skeleton on it to appear even more horrific whilst committing his terrible crimes. And he’s the central character!
