Maid in Sweden is a dirty fillm.

I'm not referring to the nudity found therein, but rather from the fact that the film element used for the transfer, presumably an IP, has both printed in as well as surface dirt that was not cleaned away.

It actually looks very much like what a 35mm print would have looked like in 1971.

Back in the early 1970s when nudity in films was a novelty, young Swedish model and actress Christina Lindberg seared her way across motion picture screens around the world.

Don't get me wrong. Ms Lindberg, now 71, had a beautiful body, but the films pretty much began and ended there. With any possible rationale to have her take off her clothes. From the perceptive of those on HTF, probably her most important film was the 1973 Thriller: A Cruel Picture, available from Synapse, which many feel was the basis of another film.

Maid in Sweden, her third film was a 1971 release, directed by Israeli filmmaker Dan Volman aka Floch Johnson, not to be confused with John Ford.

The film was distributed via Cannon Films, and is now being made available from MGM to Kino and their Code Red label.
