   What Have They Done to Solange? - 1972
Dutch Release
Cosa avete fatto a Solange?

Just as through history there has been trends and periods of art, such as pop art or expressionism, the Dutch went through a period of producing airbrushed nightmares to grace there video sleeves. Almost a sister piece to the delightful "caniball girl".
So here we have a Dutch sleeve for an Italian Giallo film and yet when I look at it I see two quintessentially(look at me using big words!) British things, both to do with the Lady to the left of the front cover, whos nipples appear to be made from screws...

First thing is: Bacon Frazzles

A childhood favourite and cheap. But the real question is, why the f- has she got a bacon frazzle over her mouth? In this some kind of torture method? Maybe she really hates frazzles and now she can't open her mouth and scream for fear of it landing in her gob and her having to eat the bacon-esque corn based snack.

And number two: Jeremy Beadle

Check out her hands, which have been tied up, clear case of Beadle hand going on there.

And for thoes under the age of 20 or not too up on dead British tv presenters: Don't worry, the sleeve is so shit it defies cultural and geographical differences, i.e it's universally crap.

Thanks to Cees for the scan.

Lost in translation

Caniball girl - (??)
Dutch release

Words fail me. And obviously they also failed whoever was in charge of putting the title on this sleeve.

Hitting a bum note...

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage - 1970

 UK Release
L'uccello dalle piume di cristallo

Certain names in life just demand respect - no questions asked, they get it. Argento is one of them. This sleeve is not. Complete pile of arse , except the arse in question looks more like, to put it crudely, a ball sack. The master of horror's work deserves more respect than a dodgy arse with a fist coming out of the top. 
Wrong wrong wrong wrong!
(Insert anal fisting joke here)
