    There are six so far in the US, and 6 more in France. I'm wondering how the quality of these are. The French ones can be had as a set for about $40, while the US versions are listed at $40 each (or buy 2 get one free).

    I never managed to get the entire set on LD. I would hope that Russ' commentary on the Vixen LDs makes it to the eventual DVDs.

    I'm holding out for Faster Pussycat!

    There's a place reserved on my shelf for it between Reform Scool Girls and Olgas House of Shame [​IMG]

    By all accounts, Criterion are handling Beyond the Valley of the Dolls - see here.

    I've also heard rumours that Criterion are going to be release other Fox properties, like Robert Altman's 3 Women, Akira Kurosawa's Kagemusha and Luchino Visconti's The Leopard.

    Yes, I was aware of the Criterion connection, but am a bit surprised that we haven't heard anything official yet.

    You can get Faster Pussycat for all of 2 Euros here.

    I have no idea if the ship to the US though.

    The R2 Faster Pussycat dvd is the only disc I've bought from outside R1 that my Cyberhome 500 player does not like. I don't know what the problem is, but the image pixellates beyond watchability. I was not impressed and rather disappointed after spending the money importing it from Amazon France!

    Since the Russ Meyer site only lists 6 movies on disk, is there some possibility the other ones are bootlegs?

    I have seen DVD movies on the auction sites that I am not aware of having been issued as such.
