Even more Swedish cultural imperialism

So yesterday we had Italian posters with more or less tenuous connections to Sweden, and today we have... English posters with Swedish connections! How's that for seamless linkage? First up the UK quad for Anita - Swedish Nymphet, starring not only Christina Lindberg as the titular nymphet, but also Stellan Skarsgård as the young psychologist who takes her in. Stellan of course would go on to mega-stardom in Pirates of the Caribbean and other schlock, whereas Christina edits Flygrevyn, the leading Nordic magazine for flight enthusiasts. More UK quads: Christina also starred in Exposed, whereas Sex In Sweden is in fact an adaptation of Daniel Defoe's Molly from director Mac Ahlberg, who later enjoyed a career as one of Hollywood's top cinematographers. Finally, a film with no connection with Sweden whatsoever except the title! Brigitte Lahaie who played Greta, one of the Sechs Schwedinnen von der Tankstelle in this Erwin C. Dietrich production, is in reality French and appeared in many of Jean Rollin's dreamy vampire epics.

I've been looking for that Exposed quad forever! If you ever come across another (or Anita), I'd love to hear all about it! And Sex In Sweden is superb. You guys are outrageous!

For UK quads, an automated search on ebay.co.uk can do wonders! And Canadians are great too, you naughty mounties, you...
