One of Mimsy Farmer's most compelling performances was in ROAD TO SALINA (1971) aka Quando il sole scotta. She plays an enigmatic young woman who flirts with and plays mind games with a drifter who might be her long lost brother (Robert Walker Jr.). Some would classify this as Eurotrash but it's something more - genuinely erotic and haunting. But there are also nutty, over the top moments. In some prints Rita Hayworth and Ed Begley can be seen dancing the frug.
