Horrors of Spider Island (1960) - Exotic Dancer Catfight

From the days of black and white movies this comes from a German production Ein Toter hing im Netz,which became "A dead one hung in the web" which was dubbed into English and eventually after a few more name changes and some nudity taken out released in 1962 as Horrors of Spider Island.
The girls doing the fighting are Austrian Barbara Valentin
who was often refered to as Germany's Jayne Mansfield.I think that's called poetic licence,born in Vienna,Austria!!!
Another strange claim to fame is that she was romantically involved in the 80's with Freddie Mercury and featured on the video the Queen song "It's a Hard Life".
Her opponent is Eva Schauland
was born Eva Maueroff in Poland whose career in Germany appears to have covered the odd marriage where she got her surname through dancing,singing and films.
