A scene from YOUNG APHRODITES (1963)

In my neverending quest to find every PEP film out there, I came across this film. It's a controversial Greek film that's almost all but forgotten today. It parallels stories of Eros set in 200 B.C. and it shows the sexual awakening of a girl and a young boy.  I got a hold of a great looking print with English subs. I haven't seen it yet, just parts of it and it's looks great. Decidedly different than the usual stuff but has an authentic feel to it.

Forgive me, must I must ask: just what kind of bird is that and what are they doing to it?

It's a dead pelican and the kid carries it around in the film, from what I've seen from it.
