Danger Diabolik, 1968

First viewing unriffed. Signal Watch party. Everyone else liked it.

One reviewer called it a charisma-free zone. I can suspend a lot of disbelief if I think a character is cool or funny or human and not plastic mannequins. Having just found out this was based on a comic book it makes much more sense now.
