Savage Man Savage Beast (1975) UK Quad Poster
Described by James Ferman, the head of the BBFC as 'one of the most vile and objectionable films ever submitted', this Mondo received about 10 minutes of cuts for - well, just about everything, staged or otherwise. It turned out to be Hong Kong's second highest grossing foreign language picture in 1975, only pipped by Jaws.
Director Antonio Climati (who here co-directed with his editor Mario Morra) made several other Mondo films - This Violent World (1976), Sweet and Savage (1983) and finally went on to fake everything in The Green Inferno (1988) with a cast that strangely never made another film... Apart from Bruno Corazzari, a constant face in Italian cinema, from Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), to Necropolis (1970), Seven Blood-Stained Orchids (1972), Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man (1976) and Black Cat (1981).
