About this Playlist
Jane Does Danger is a playlist inspired by two films. The first is the 1968 classic Danger: Diabolik. I’m not sure if this film by Mario Brava and starring John Phillip Law is supposed to take place anywhere that I’ve physically visited. A summary of the film suggests it takes place “somewhere in Europe.” Thankfully, I am currently, at least, somewhere in Europe!
Enter Roman Coppola’s film CQ. If you haven’t had the pleasure, this is an absolutely brilliant and fun piece of filmmaking. It parodies the aforementioned Danger: Diabolik on the one hand. On the other, it stylishly and lovingly pays homage to almost every quirky, completely inappropriate-for-children film that many Gen Xers (like myself) were raised on.
The setting of Jane Does Danger is Monte Carlo.

Imagine credits rolling over a single image. Picture yourself in the late 60s during the Monaco Grand Prix. Driver Graham Hill is there. So is Richard Atwood. The Bay of Monaco is crowded with yachts. Music blares as beautiful men and women, scantily clad, brush flesh against flesh, spilling Dom Perignon on the bows.
You’re not here for the party, though. You’re here to rob the rich and give to the poor (yourself included). You have a plan. It’s not a great plan, but it’s going to work.
