Shock Xpress - Lindsay Shonteff (pt. 1)

I'll have to disappoint all of you who had hoped this post would feature trailers from the oeuvre of Bodil Joensen: the films in which she 'starred' are not featured on YouTube.

Instead, this post focuses on the films discussed in an interview with z-grade film director Lindsay Shonteff by film journalist Allan Bryce, published in the second Shock Xpress book. Bryce: "I first became interested in Lindsay Shonteff movies in the early '70s, when I spent an unhealthy amount of time frequenting the lower class of London soft porn cinemas - the sort of places where even the cockroaches wear dark glasses to avoid being recognized."

Devil Doll (Lindsay Shonteff, 1964)

Licensed to Kill aka The Second Best Secret Agent in the Whole Wide World (Lindsay Shonteff, 1965)
