I remember Kino Video used this artwork for the video box, I had no idea it was also the original U.S. poster. Here's an intriguing Italian poster for it:

And one from Eastern Europe (Polish or Czech, I'm not entirely sure):

Still haven't seen it myself, or Boccaccio '70 for that matter.

I once posted a brief piece about the Welles/Pasolini collaboration in RoGoPaG; read it here.

I was able to see one of Gregorett's films, Omicron, a science fiction comedy that was quite funny. Too bad Kino hasn't seen fit to get RoGoPaG on DVD.
