Universal Pictures: Celebrating 100 Years screening - Cobra Woman
Maria Montez plays dual roles as a virtuous princess and her evil twin, the iron-fisted, fabulously attired ruler of Cobra Island. Cobra Island is a place where strangers are instantly put to death, and inhabitants are periodically thrown into the local volcano. This CinemaScope and Technicolor spectacle influenced the camp aesthetic in films by Jack Smith and John Waters. Introduced by Houston Film Critics Society member Michael Bergeron.
