William Klein Mr Freedom cover Fantastique #20 October 1968

£45.00

A complete issue of the French film magazine Fantastique #20 October 1968 edited by Le Terrain Vague publisher Eric Losfeld, who  had reputation in the 1960s for publishing risque adult graphic novels (many of which can  be found on this website) -namely Barbarella (1964), Emmanuelle (1967) and The Adventures of Jodelle & Pravda by Guy Pellaert ( Diamond Dogs cover….) and Saga De Xam.  Unsurprisingly Losefeld published the book of Klein’s film, based on a larger than life comic book anti-hero.   Ambitious as the film was, the book is a lot better than the film.despite fantastic costumes, sets  & a Serge Gainsbourg soundtrack (and acting role),  the poor lighting and bad production value let it down.

The rest of the magazine’s contents is  fabulous : Goohan’s The Prisoner, Planet of the Apes (La Planete des singes – the film was based on a French novel) and Polanski , Godzilla etc…all high trash.

Condition : VG+ Minor spotting on content page – see photo. Complete : no clippings , creases etc. Uncommon.
