[Mask of Grey]
director: Juan Antonio Bardem
starring: Jean Seberg · Marisol · Barry Stokes · Perla Cristal · Rudy

Seberg plays Ruth Miller, a fashion designer, spending the summer in Spain
with her stepdaughter Chris. They do not get along. Ruth wants revenge
against her husband who abandoned them a year before. She hopes to get
it by corrupting his daughter through unusual sex games. The whole thing
is further complicated by the arrival of a young drifter who may - or
may not - be connected to a series of vicious murders in the surrounding
criteria, this is a very unusual Giallo, made even more bizarre by the
presence of legendary Hollywood actress Jean Seberg in the leading role.
She was not proud of this movie and did not include it in her 'official'
filmography. She was embarrassed by the lurid subject matter, agreeing
to make it only for financial reasons. In reality, despite a robust early
career (which included such hits as Bonjour Tristesse, Lilith,
Paint Your Wagon and of course Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless),
Ms Seberg was virtually broke in 1973, unable to secure work due to her
fragile mental state, which was further damaged by constant worldwide
harassment from the FBI as a result of her involvement with the Black
Panther movement. Five years later Jean Seberg was found dead, an apparent
victim of suicide. She died in Paris, from a barbiturate overdose, in
August 1979, at age 40.
