Italian Spiderman (Good Guy), Japanese Spiderman (Good Guy), Turkish Spiderman (EVIL!!!!)

These are all on youtube – the first is a spoof ‘theatrical trailer’ for a ‘long lost’ Italian version of Spiderman from the 1960’s. All very tongue-in-cheek, but with a lot of humour and knowledge of the respective Countries film output and cinematic conventions.

Here is the blurb from the youtube entry;

“ITALIAN SPIDERMAN
Unearthed for the first time in 43 years and lovingly restored at Maxischermo Studios Milan, this rare theatrical trailer for the 1964 Italian classic ‘Italian Spiderman’ is a real treat. Featuring Franco Franchetti of ‘Mondo Sexo’ fame in his last ever role before being killed in a spear fishing accident in 1965. Director, Gianfranco Gatti, reminisces on ‘Italian Spiderman’; “I have made some mistakes in my
life…bad, bad mistakes”.
