Salon Kitty, however, owes more than just a little of its mise-en-scene to La Caduta degli dei {The Damned, Italy, 1969, Luchino Visconti). What emerges from a study of these films' influences and precursors is a genetic/generic code that moves downward from 'art' films like Visconti's through Brass's glossy but salacious re-working, into the Nazi sexploitation period proper. This particular thread, from La Caduta degli dei to Salon Kitty, gives way to what can be called the 'Nazi Bordello' film: high-art prototypes such as La Caduta degli dei and perhaps II portiere di notte give way to the extreme exploitation films Casa private per le SS (literally 'Private House of the SS' but known in English as SS Girls, Italy, 1977, Bruno Mattei) and Le Lunghe notti della Gestapo {Red Nights of the Gestapo, Italy, 1977, Fabio De Agostini), with Salon Kitty holding a more ambivalent middle place between high- and low-cultural product.
