Yes, finally...a true legit version coming to DVD!! Mya Communications is releasing this highly sought after Argento film in Feb 2009!! Now, what do they have up there sleeve that the others didn't?
I had forgotten there even was a German disc. Thanks for that, Johan.
In terms of extras on the MYA release though, you're right - they look almost non-existent, which considering the history of this title's availability, is highly unfortunate. Never mind an Argento interview though. Even more so, I'd give a left nut to be able to sit back and enjoy a lengthy Q&A with the magnificent, Mimsy Farmer - whose status as somewhat of a minor gialli goddess was kick started unquestionably with 4 MOSCHE DI VELLUTO GRIGIO. Had she not had such a significant role in Argento's film, she may have never been considered for later, twitchy parts in giallo outings such as Crispino's MACCHIE SOLARI (1973) and Barilli's IL PROFUMO DELLA SIGNORA IN NERO (1974) (PERFUME OF THE LADY IN BLACK). The film definitely had influence in the way it shaped Mimsy's overall onscreen persona, in my view. And what of Brooklyn, New York born veteran film, television and theatre actor, Michael Brandon? I'd be intrigued to know how he looks back today on his only foray into the offbeat world of Italian cult cinema.
That's what I've already suggested in one of my posts above. Pretty positive they are an offshoot of No Shame. It's been all but confirmed on several boards, so the general consensus is yes, they do have a tie in to the former No Shame. At least that tells us we're likely to get stellar quality when the disc officially streets.
