The 1.85:1, 16x9 enhanced Region 1 Anchor Bay release was once thought to be the definitive version of the film until eagle-eyed fans noticed that a scene during the opening sequence and some music from the soundtrack was missing.
Fans have also complained about the fact that during English-language playback on the Anchor Bay edition some of the audio was not dubbed into English, so the English subtitle stream has to be turned on during playback. Our Region 4 edition does not have an English subtitle option which suggests that we have a version that does not include these Italian-only recorded scenes.
The X-Rated PAL Kult DVD from Germany has the same audio issues as the Anchor Bay edition. The German subtitles have to be activated so the Italian-only scenes can be understood by German speaking fans. It is presented in an aspect ratio of 1.66:1 and is not 16x9 enhanced, but contains the following bonus features:
• US, Italian and German trailers
• US, Italian and German opening credits and US closing credits
• 10 isolated music tracks
The best and most complete version available appears to be the Region 2 Italian Alan Young Pictures release. It has a bundle of bonus features including:
• Director audio commentary
• Alternate opening and closing credit sequences
• Sequence comparison involving natural and filtered light featurette
• Photo gallery
It is presented in an aspect ratio of 1.72:1 and is 16x9 enhanced. Although it has both an English and Italian language option, the bonus features are in Italian only.
Overall, regardless of its faults, the best version available for English speaking fans is the Region 1 Anchor Bay release.
