Encore and in a new scan for our friend Greg. Vintage postcard. Photo: publicity still for Le plus vieux métier du monde/The oldest profession (Michael Pfleghar, 1967). Le plus vieux métier du monde/The oldest profession was a typical European anthology film of the 1960s. A collection of sketches on prostitution through the ages, made by a pan-European cast and crew. In the leads some of the most sensual stars of the era, such as Michèle Mercier, Elsa Martinelli, Anna Karina, Nadia Gray, Jeanne Moreau and thé sex symbol of the late 1960s, Raquel Welch. Welch played Nini in the episode La belle époque/The Gay Nineties, directed by Michael Pfleghar. When Nini discovers by accident that her antiquated customer (Martin Held) is a banker, she pretends to be an honest woman who has fallen in love with him. She even pays him, just like a gigolo! Varlaam at IMDb: "Raquel Welch stars in the most amusing episode, relatively speaking. It's apparently set in 1890's Vienna (Emperor Franz Josef is on the paper money). One could probably say that Raquel's greatest classic role was as the injured party in the Cannery Row lawsuit. Finely nuanced she was not, normally. But she makes an appealing light comedienne here, and she can really fill a lacy Viennese corset. The Belle Époque it assuredly was." The other five episodes are: 1) L'ère préhistorique/The Prehistoric Era (directed by Franco Indovina): A caveman discovers that a cavewoman (Michèle Mercier) is more attractive when cave paint is applied to her face. And she can earn more seashells that way. 2) Nuits romaines/Roman Nights (Mauro Bolognini): The Emperor goes out seeking a little nocturnal amusement, only to find that the high-priced, Oriental courtesan he hires is his wife, the Empress (Elsa Martinelli). 3) Mademoiselle Mimi (Philippe de Broca): In revolutionary France, Mimi (Jeanne Moreau) finds that her client, the nephew of a marquis (Jean-Claude Brialy), is more interested in watching the guillotinings out her window than he is in going to bed. 4) Aujourd'hui/Paris Today (Claude Autant-Lara): Two girls (Nadia Gray and France Anglade) pick up clients by driving around in a car, and then an ambulance. Police pull the vehicle over for speeding. 5) Anticipation, ou l'amour en l'an 2000/Anticipation (Jean-Luc Godard): Demetrius (Jacques Charrier) has just arrived on Earth and wants some human contact. Marilu Tolo and Anna Karina are the sensual and spiritual aspects of prostitution. Bob Taylor at IMDb: "The sketch film was a staple of European cinema in the Fifties and Sixties. It allowed directors to work out some interesting ideas in 15 to 20 minute segments, on small budgets. (...) We have to wait for the final episode, Anticipation by Godard, to experience a real jolt. Nobody has used everyday settings like airports and office towers to create menacing environments the way Godard has; there's terror in that chrome and Formica."
