Photo of the Day

Michèle Mercier and friend are WOMEN OF DEVIL'S ISLAND

A "women in prison" type of film also starring Guy Madison. Not bad. I don't have this film in my collection but I did see it online at one point and it was good. Director Domenico Paolella made tons of PEPLUM films, including one of my favourites, HERCULES AGAINST THE MONGOLS. This film doesn't move at the pace of the Mark Forest actioner but production quality is solid. Would make a fun double feature with AVENGER OF THE SEVEN SEAS starring Richard Harrison. You can view an odd trailer here: link

The Spanish DVD release is a terrific letterbox print in Spanish and Italian language. There's also a letterbox French release and a ropey full screen English language version available in the "50 Drive-In Movie Classics" boxed set.

A good movie and I have a copy of this from the set that was mentioned.That is a choppy version and missing many scenes. I saw this movie on TV during the 60's and was very disappointed by that DVD copy.
