Lui Magazine, Part III

Once again we time travel to the '60s and French pr0n. First some sidebrow, and a cover story about "what doesn't work in cinema." And a model who appears to be watering her melon:

The good news is that the Godard version had two great things (well three): music by pianist Martial Solal, and Jean Seberg's two eyebrows (plus, as a bonus, the rubber mask-like face of Belmondo). Here's the poster:
