European Nights (1959)
An odd mix of straightforward documentary and mondo movie, this look at mostly European show business acts is narrated by humorist Henry Morgan, who's on board so "you won't have to read those crazy subtitles." Featured are bellydancer Badia, with a hypnotizing midriff; the Rastellis, a group of violent clowns; "Volare" singer Domenico Modugno; lots of strippers; and The Platters(?!), who sing "You'll Never Know." AKA: "Europe by Night." 77 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English; bonus shorts.
