Obscure double-feature at Raleigh's glorious sleazepit Center Drive-in, from July, 1971: FORNICON was the US title for George Harrison Mark's UK drama PATTERN OF EVIL (1967); no info on CANDY BABY (1969) other than it featured the infamous Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Neither film has been seen on home video.

A nice juxtaposition of foreign obscurities on one screen, and Hollywood epic on the other, here at the Tri-City Twin in March, 1967. FLESH AND DESIRE is the US version (distributed by Ellis Films) of the French/Italian drama La Chair et le diable (1954, no DVD); BLONDE WITCH was Ellis' version of the French/Swedish La Sorcière (1956, no DVD); not sure about HOUSE OF FEAR, but maybe it's the 1945 Sherlock Holmes film? CLEOPATRA was of course the 1963 Taylor/Burton bio.

The enticing ad for Barry Mahon's FANNY HILL MEETS DR. EROTICO (1967) makes it that much more painful that a print has yet to resurface. Rounding out this March, 1968 triple-feature at Guilderland, NY's Carman Drive-in are the UK actioner MOZAMBIQUE (1965, yet to make DVD) and NAUGHTY GIRLS, which I'm assuming is a retitling of Barry Mahon's NAUGHTY NUDES (1965, on VHS from Something Weird).
