From dancer, to model, to actress Barbara Bouchet was a force to be reckoned within Italian cult cinema during the 1970's, with indisputable beauty and intelligence. As one of our favorite international cult film actresses, we thought limiting ourselves to a few random reviews in our International Film blog simply wasn't good enough. We wanted to create a separate and more comprehensive collection of Barbara Bouchet material than has ever been seen on the net, from rare interviews, photos and magazine articles to reviews of films that even cult film fans have never heard of! Thus the Barbara Bouchet Film Series was born, so be prepared for the most comprehensive collection of Barbara Bouchet reviews anywhere!

Il debito coniugale [The Conjugal Debt] (1970) June 26, 2017 08:00


When it comes to Italian comedies The Conjugal Debt delivers on all cylinders with cheesy comedy and more sexy Barbara Bouchet scenes than may be medically recommended in one sitting.

L'asino d'oro: processo per fatti strani contro Lucius Apuleius cittadino romano [The Golden Ass] (1970) March 12, 2017 08:00


While Barbara Bouchet's beauty (and body) transcends both time and culture L'asino d'oro is a long winded attempt at adapting an ancient Roman novel and adding some booty, albeit Bouchet's lovely behind, which may possibly be the film's only silver lining.

Colpo rovente [Red Hot Shot] (1970) February 21, 2017 08:30


For fans of the euro-crime genre this is a rare one that ticks all the boxes of a true Italian crime film, drugs, gangs, girls, and guns.  Unfortunately the film never gained the recognition it deserved and almost appeared to be intentionally shunned.

Stoney (1969) January 16, 2017 21:56


For Barbara Bouchet's first starring role Stoney is a film that will appeal more to fans looking for "eye candy" than general cult film fans.  For what the film's story squanders in plot holes and horrendous editing, it breaks-even in pure unadulterated Barbara Bouchet beauty.

Sweet Charity (1969) December 21, 2016 08:00


Barbara Bouchet makes her final American film appearance (at least for the next 30 years), in once again another Shirley MacLaine musical which equals a recipe for disaster.

Star Trek - Season 2 Episode 22: By Any Other Name (1968) December 10, 2016 10:11


Barbara Bouchet says goodbye to American television with her final appearance in an episode of Star Trek, a role that would end up being one that most American audiences would remember her by to this day.

Tarzan - Season 2 Episode 22: Jungle Ransom (1968) November 28, 2016 08:00


Out of the handful of American television guest appearances by Barbara Bouchet our unlikely favorite happens to be the most obscure of them all. Tarzan wins out as the best of Barbara Bouchet's TV appearances on pure campy entertainment value alone.

The Virginian - Season 6 Episode 15: The Fortress (1967) November 24, 2016 11:15


The Virginian marks Barbara Bouchet's only appearance in a western genre role.  While its definitely a decent tease of what could have been if she'd pursued westerns in her Italian film career, it's ultimately a role that doesn't vary much from her previous guest appearances.

Danger Route (1967) November 07, 2016 08:00


Danger Route breaks away from the stereotypical Euro-spy/James Bond knock-off adventure.  There's no gadgets, there's very little action (most of it's shown in the trailer below), it's abnormally serious and dark, and starts off at a rather slow pace.  Add that all up and you're looking at a film that's probably only going to appeal to the genre's hardcore enthusiasts or fans of Richard Johnson.

Casino Royale (1967) October 06, 2016 21:38


When it comes to Casino Royale there are only two kinds of viewers.  Those who are going to hate it, and those who admittedly have to watch it five times to remotely understand the plot and claim they enjoy it.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - Season 2 Episode 26: The Project Deephole Affair (1966) August 26, 2016 08:00


While panned and mocked by many, Barbara Bouchet's first co-starring film appearance in the campy cult film Agent For H.A.R.M. did nothing but good things for Bouchet's blossoming career which landed her a guest spot in the hot 1960's spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and a handful of other spy-centric roles to come.

Agent For H.A.R.M. (1966) August 01, 2016 08:00


Agent For H.A.R.M., likely known more for its featured appearance on the 90's cult TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000, where B-movies go to be mocked.  For Barbara Bouchet fans it's the first real chance to see the actress in a large co-starring role.  While it is an overly campy romp, it's a fun one none the less.

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - Season 2 Episode 6: The Left-Handed Man (1965) July 19, 2016 00:47


Barbara Bouchet makes a "splash" in Irwin Allen's classic 1960's adventure series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.  Unfortunately the promotional photos promise a lot more than is ever delivered, still it's another solid television appearance for the blossoming actress.

In Harm's Way (1965) June 27, 2016 01:17


Ironically Barbara Bouchet's party scenes and the promotional pictures on the beach, did more for the film than any of the big name stars could.

John Goldfarb, Please Come Home! (1965) June 13, 2016 09:01


It's hard to believe that the writer of this film, who would later go on to adapt The Exorcist, could pen such an off-the-wall, over-the-top and all-over-the-place comedy.

The Rogues - Episode 11: Plavonia, Hail and Farewell (1964) March 28, 2016 23:47


Barbara Bouchet wastes no time in solidifying herself as an international blonde bombshell.  In her first credited role she turns on the heat and gives plenty of pouty looks as the sultry temptress who throws a hammer in the cog of Gig Young's conman plan, in the short lived NBC television series The Rogues.

Good Neighbor Sam (1964) March 05, 2016 23:38


While still an un-credited role, in Good Neighbor Sam, Barbara Bouchet has her longest on screen film appearance thus far and well as a speaking role, in this cute comedy starring Jack Lemmon and Romy Schneider.

Bedtime Story (1964) January 21, 2016 19:37

What A Way To Go! (1964) January 10, 2016 00:07


What A Way To Go! is an interesting pairing of some of Hollywood's classic actors, and possibly worth a look for that reason. Barbara Bouchet makes a brief appearance in the "orgy" scene... but don't get your hopes up.
