Thread: Jess Franco Blu-ray

  1. #1691
    Artus Films in France is issuing Lucky, the Inscrutable (as Opération Re Mida) on DVD. No English at all. Apparently the earlier German release (Lucky M. füllt alle Särge) has an English soundtrack. The cast includes Rosalba Neri, Teresa Gimpera and Patty Shephard.

    You forgot Beba Loncar! Her scenes are the high point of the film, holy cow she looks incredibly sexy, and the bit where Ray Danton and pal chase her around the rooftops accompanied by Bruno Nicolai's "Spy Chase" theme is a full-on slice of Euro-cult nirvana. I can watch that scene anytime and feel better. I have the earlier German DVD and it does have an English option. Wish this film would get a BD release.

    "You forgot Beba Loncar! ... holy cow she looks incredibly sexy" I honestly had never heard of her before and in reading the credits did not realize Beba Loncar was a woman. I have watched "Some Girls Do" so I must have seen her. I have the German DVD too, so I'll check her out this weekend.

    Thus far, I've only managed to see 'Lucky' via a terrible, pixelated bootleg. Viewed in that condition, it seemed like a total mess, but I recall the masque ball sequence was very impressive (Franco getting his Welles/von Sternberg on, I suppose), and that clip definitely makes me want to check it out again in more watchable form. Fingers crossed an easy way to do so with subtitles emerges sooner or later.

You can find audio clips of the tune but not the scene as it is in the film. Oh well, at least you can see Beba in all her glory. This is probably my favorite Franco film.

    A Franco I've never seen... Will have to remedy that.

    Pidax have started to re-issue some of their titles on blu-ray. I don't own this, nor have ever seen it, but got to admit that clip draws me in. I may hang on a little to see if it hits blu.
