Audience Reviews for Black Veil for Lisa

(1991 Director: Massimo Dallamano-Dorian Gray/Super Bitch) Ahhh...a nice Italian movie...which I am sure I have seen but not recently & starring Luciana Paluzza (99 Women, Thunderball[James Bond] & Medusa) with John Mills of Hamlet, Frankenstein, A Tale of Two Cities & Around the World in 80 days' fame.
