The Princess and the Pea/La Principessa sul Pisello (1976)



Notable for not actually featuring the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale ‘The Princess and the Pea’, director Piero Regnoli plunders ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Snow White…’ instead, with actresses Crista Linder and Susanna Martinkova taking the title roles respectively. If you were impressed with the thoroughly bonkers Baby Love then this is probably the next best thing, with healthy doses of sex and a script filled with (thoroughly) insane dialogue and sexual innuendos aplenty. I should add that it’s rumored the film took in a staggeringly low 70,000 lira at the Italian box-office which may explain its relative obscurity.
