Soledad Miranda's Got A Gun

I told my girlfriend that this guy was giving me some trouble at work. She decided to take matters into her own hands. I had no idea this is what she meant.

Seriously though. That's Soledad Miranda in the 1971 Jess Franco film
The Devil Came From Akasava. She's credited in the film as Susann Korda. This movie could be considered to be a Franco contribution to Euro-Spy genre. A certain stone is discovered that can turn metal into gold, but also has the effect of turning humans into zombies. It seems everybody wants this stone. Secret agents are sent in on a mission to retrieve it. This is actually one of my favorite Jess Franco films. It's got all the hallmarks of a Franco film that his fans love and his critics hate. The sexy beauty of Soledad Miranda is on full display here. I could watch that women for hours and hours. Tragically she was killed in a car accident soon after filming was completed on this film.

Check out the trailer to get a better idea of what this movie is all about:

Is she the one from Vampyros Lesbos?

Keith said...

Hey Metal. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's been a long time since I've seen this one. I wanna watch it again. I've been trying to see all the movies of hers I can. Yeah, she can be brutal. But she's definitely beautiful.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Yeah, that's her. Both of those films were done by Jess Franco.

Right on, Keith--I've never even heard of this one, but I've discovered so far that Franco+Soledad Miranda is a good combo. I'll have to seek this one out.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I've seen Vampyros Lesbos and She Killed In Ecstasy. That's it.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks for the comments. Glad you're interested in seeing this movie. I think you'll enjoy it.

Keith said...

Hey Fred. Glad I could introduce you to this movie then. I hope you get a chance to see it. I like this one. My favorite Franco movies are the ones he did with Soledad.

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe for letting me know.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I came across this video. I thought you might like it. It's sort of long though. It's a tribute to Soledad.

Soledad was the definition of a black magic woman - something always a bit dark and mysterious about her. Great post!

Keith said...

Thanks Gil. I love the way you described her. I couldn't say it any better. She's something special.

Jeremy Richey said...

You know Keith, I really dig this one as well and I wish it got more respect...it's a hell of a lot of fun and Soledad is breathtaking as always.

Keith said...

Hey Jeremy. Thanks. I'm glad you are a fan of this one. I think it's really cool. It deserves more attention that it gets. Soledad is so stunning.
