Women of the World by Bob Hyde - 1960s

Print Description

Women of the World by Bob Hyde - 1960s.

Women of the World (original title La donna nel mondo) is a 1963 Italian mondo film, also described as a "shockumentary", written and directed by filmmakers Gualtiero Jacopetti, Paolo Cavara and Franco Prosperi. It was rushed into release on 30 January, following the international box-office success achieved by its predecessor, the initial mondo film, Mondo Cane, which premiered in Italy ten months earlier, 30 March 1962. The English language print was narrated by Peter Ustinov.

Following the pattern set by the original concept and consisting mostly of leftover footage from the first film, Women of the World is, again, a series of travelogue vignettes which provide glimpses into the lives of its title subjects, with the intention of shocking or surprising Western film audiences. However, unlike the previous film which had no specific central subject matter, but rather presented a kaleidoscopic display of shocking content, the second film was marketed as directly promising a titillating display of feminine flesh and intriguing as well as exotic sexual practices. As with the first film, despite its claims of being a genuine documentary, a number of the depicted scenes are either staged or creatively manipulated.

Bob Hyde - Prints, Cards & Postcards of London In the Swinging 60s

Memories of Bob Hyde by author Len Deighton.

I first met Bob Hyde at St Martin's School of Art. It was 1950 and we had served in the RAF and been lucky enough to have secured ex-servicemen's grants for further study. We weren't the only ex-servicemen there, and the presence of so many 'mature students' - many of them with wives and children to support - made the art school a very serious environment.

 



Confronted with students so determined to learn, the teachers were kept on their toes. In my class the ex-servicemen included a Polish general, a decorated British Chindit officer who had fought through the Burma jungle, and a Polish ex-soldier who had escaped from a German prisoner of war camp and made his way through the Middle East to England. These were not the sorts of people who could be bamboozled by incompetent instructors.

They were a colourful bunch and those of us who had done no more than a couple of years of National Service were inclined to be in awe of them. Bob's time in the RAF had been spent serving in a mountain rescue team and he was a tough individual well able to endure the penny-pinching, rationed and everyday hardships of London in the fifties. I have never met anyone more dedicated to his work but we were both partygoers too. Looking back it is hard to reconcile Bob's taciturn, and even somewhat shy, character with the way he was to be found at all the best parties skilfully playing guitar and singing softly in his hoarse smoker's voice.

Bob Hyde was an exceptionally talented student of the painting school but for those of us who were motivated by the need to earn a living after art school, the fine arts seemed a perilous path. Bob was made of sterner stuff. Cezanne was Bob's favoured painter and, when we shared a small flat, it was a print of Cezanne's 'The Card Players' that hung on the wall of the kitchen where we spent so much time cooking, laughing, eating and talking.

I couldn't say that Bob talked about painting to the exclusion of everything else, in fact he didn't get into the sort of earnest discussion about art that was going on all around us. Bob was the sort of painter who painted rather than talked. When, having graduated from St Martin's School of Art, he became a waiter at the Studio Club it was because he didn't have to start work until early evening, and so had the daylight hours in which to paint. And yet, when at about that timeI introduced him to someone as a 'painter', he corrected me and said: 'No, I'm a waiter'. I admired him for that response and remembered it ever after. It demonstrated the depth of self-discipline and determination that was the essence of his character. I have no doubt at all that had Bob Hyde not died so tragically young he would have become a major talent in today's art world.
