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

, 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

Diabolik steals a 20-ton ingot of gold. The ingot is shown to be about the size of a VW minibus, but, because gold is so dense, a 20-ton block would take up much less space: a little over one cubic metre (36 cubic feet, or a cube-shaped block 39 inches each side). See more
