    Forget Depp and Morrow! This one has the lovely Leslie Easterbrook wearing one of the finest see-thru nighties in movie history!

    I'm really not sure what it is about this movie, but it's always been one of my absolute favorite 'guilty pleasures' over the years. I've come across 2 LaserDisc copies over the years and now it looks like time to part with one of them. Any word on whether or not this will be 16x9? Not exactly a hot title, but Depp's name is probably good enough for a modest gain.

    Yes, it is anamorphic.

    I don't think I'll be able to review this due to some higher-profile titles coming out on the same day, but maybe Cam can give it a look.

    Sounds great! I honestly never thought this would see a widescreen transfer, yet alone a DVD release. Now if RAD and The Wizard can get similar treatment I'll be a happy guy.
