Pin-Up of the Day: Sylvia Kristel

Ah, the human back. I can’t help feeling it doesn’t get enough credit, the human back. Although I guess dress designers have known of its secret powers for some time.

From Claude Chabrol’s atypical ALICE, OU LE DERNIERE FUGUE. Sylvia is very good at sitting naked in cane furniture (see also: EMMANUELLE). Although I bet by now her ass looks like she’s been spanked with a tennis racket.

  1. Two back stories. The earliest, seeing Richard Fleischer’s The Vikings as a boy, and the erotic charge I got seeing Tony Curtis rip open Janet Leigh’s bodice so she could more effectively help row the boat to safety. Years later, seeing Kate Nelligan’s bare back as she made love to Donald Sutherland in Eye of the Needle. That also stayed with me, my foremost memory of the film. A splendid back is a sight to behold.

  2. “He loved the back of her neck, which he could look at without being seen,” ~ Jules et Jim.

  3. An erotic zone the Japanese highly appreciate.
