Mike Richards
Cinema Papers issue 2, April 1974
FELLINI’S SATYRICON had two minutes cut. As the Department notes indicate: “The cut related the fact of Oenothea (played by Donyale Luna, the snake-bodied American model who visited Australia several years ago), the beautiful but dissolute priestess of Priapus at Croton. After Oenothea spurns an old and ugly wizard, the wizard deprives the peasants at Croton of the power to light fires. When the peasants beseech him for mercy he tells them they will henceforth light their torches under the clothing of Oenothea.” The scene shows a tortured and anguished Oenothea as a stream of peasants light torches from her vaginal flame-thrower.
