It's good to see that cinema was promoting awareness of breast self-examination even then.

I think Pasolini's Oedipus Rex may be the film that inspired Tom Lehrer's song of the same name (as described in his patter on "An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer").

Whether you prefer your magnificence provocative and scandalous or terrifying and compassionate, Pasolini's got you covered.

Lehrer recorded his Oedipus Rex in 1959, Pasolini made his film in 1967. Maybe it was the former who inspired the latter?
