Adrienne Larussa Shines in Brazzi's Psychedelic Euro Thriller


Original Italian Title: SALVARE LA FACCIA [Saving Face]

starring: Adrienne Larussa
· Rossano Brazzi · Nino Castelnuovo · Paola Pitagora · Alberto de Mendoza


Mario consigns his girlfriend Licia to a whorehouse for an evening so he can get get the photographs to blackmail her father. In retaliation,the father then forces Licia into an asylum for the mentally disturbed. She gets out, and - pretending to be crazy - proceeds to take revenge on everybody including her lover, older sister, brother-in-law - and of course - her father.
     American actress Adrienne Larussa absolutely steals the show as Licia. Strongly resembling Soledad Miranda (EUGENIE DE SADE, VAMPIROS LESBOS, et al), Ms Larussa manages to exude a chic sexuality while suffering through both betrayal and revenge
. Adrienne had only one other gig before this film, a minor part on ABC's General Hospital (1968). She left that series for an Italian contract which included this film and Lucio Fulci's BEATRICE CENCI, the same year. After a small part in Nicolas Roeg's The Man Who Fell To Earth, she returned to the United States television scene, landing the major role of bad-girl Brooke Hamilton for 265 episodes of Days of Our Lives soap. Today, Ms Larussa is a real estate agent in Los Angeles.
      Rossano Brazzi was an accomplished actor, involved in over 200 projects before his death in 1994. He was best known to English-speaking audiences for his role of Emile de Becque in the movie version of Rogers & Hammerstein's musical South Pacific (1958) but he also starred in numerous other Hollywood blockbusters (Three Coins In The Fountain, Barefoot Contessa, et al). Interestingly, in the late '60s, Rossano took some of his Hollywood money and went to Italy where he financed three unconventional motion pictures:SEX OF THE DEVIL, SEVEN MEN AND A BRAIN with Ann-Margret, and this psychedelic thriller, all of which he also directed under the alias Edward Ross. Mr Brazzi died in Rome, December 1994, after complications with a neural virus. He was 78 years old.
