In psychedelic swinging 60s style, the dreaded thief (and killer) Diabolik wreaks havoc on a generic European country for his own financial gain and amusement. He shares an extravagant underground lair (and a giant bed of money) with his curvaceous, superficial girlfriend...who uses her awesome powers of wig-wearing to help Diabolik kill innocent people and steal billions from the government. Nonetheless, Diabolik is the "hero" of the film because he must face off against bumbling cops and revenge-seeking mafiosos. Written by

According to John Phillip Law
, the first choice for the role of Ava Kent was an unknown model from New York, who was a friend of Charlie Bluhdorn
, the CEO of Gulf & Western, the conglomerate that owned Paramount Pictures (which had contracted to distribute the film in the US). Second choice was Catherine Deneuve
, who lasted for about a week, until director Mario Bava
decided she just was not right for the part. He finally found the perfect Ava Kent in Marisa Mell

The picture that Diabolik mounts in front of the surveillance camera during the emerald heist would not be able to substitute the actual picture on the police monitor. Firstly it is taken with a hand-held camera without flash, and secondly after mounting it is only lit from the back and would therefore appear much darker on the monitor. See more
Sure I do, who could forget what she looked like? The way she was decked out in red she looked like a mini cardinal. She had good legs. Want me to describe her? Well, look at that! That's a funny looking thing! What is it? Hey, I'm talking to you, what is it?
