The blue Spanish eyes haiku

Actually those
Spanish eyes were more likely
to be brown. Sí, sí.

Woke up with this song coming into my head in a train of thought that started with Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra singing something stupid like I love you, went on to Dean Martin and the Rat Pack (wondering if any of them were still alive), then Al Martino and that one and only song of his I remember.

The 1970s movie title haiku

Dame in a car with
oversized sunglasses and
a loaded shotgun

Movies with similar titles came out in the 1970s in Europe. The dating of the copyright is in synch with the thought and inspiration, not the actual time of writing, which is good old 2017. Picture the sunglasses as similar to those Jackie O. would wear.
