Rule 5 Sunday: Claudia Cardinale

Claudia Cardinale, the glorious Tunisian/Italian actress who featured in a lot of spaghetti westerns, first came to my attention in perhaps the greatest of those not starring Clint Eastwood: Once Upon A Time In The West, where she played a beautiful widow beset by the eeeeevil Henry Fonda. More appropriately, she played the Algerian lover of Anthony Quinn’s Colonel Raspeguy in Lost Command, a mid-sixties film based on Pierre Larteguy’s famous novel The Centurions, which follows a group of French Army officers from Dien Bien Phu to the Battle of Algiers. Here’s Cardinale’s Aisha with her colonel.

The beginning of a tragic relationship.

On a far more cheerful note (and if you’ve read the book, you know exactly what I mean), Ninety Miles From Tyranny serves up something extra this week with Hot Pick of the Late Night90 Miles Mystery Box Episode 699, Morning Mistress, Girls With Guns, and the bonus 90 Miles Mystery Video – Nyctophilia #2. At Animal Magnetism, it’s Rule 5 UFO Kookery News and the Saturday Gingermageddon (the 250th!), while Bacon Time serves up Larsa Pippen.

This week, EBL brings us rats, National Chicken Wing Day, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Marianne Williamson, Harriet Tubman, Tulsi vs. Kamala, National Water Balloon Day, and Darleen Love.
