The Morricone score is outstanding. Been interested in seeing this for a long time...

This is one of those films (VERUSCHKA is another example) where I've never managed to come across anybody with a copy, but I'd love to see it as well. I'm a bit surprised it hasn't been released on DVD anywhere, considering the cast and Dario's involvement.
The score is fantastic. Love the version of the title track from Easy Tempo Vol. 4 with vocals by Florinda.

There`s also a super cool, long version done by Piero Piccioni on Easy Tempo Vol. 10, it was recorded live for television and has Edda on vocals. By the way, vol. 10 might just be my favorite of the series - there`s so much exclusive stuff and the Nicolai microgroove 'Allora Il Treno' is killer.

There definitely was an English dub for the film.  The extended CD has an English language song done for the English version.

Yep, I was listening to the Cinevox disc this morning after this discussion. The liner notes state that the English version of 'Hurry To Me' was recorded exclusively for the English version of the film. The Canto Morricone Vol. 1 cd has what I believe is this same version, credited to The Sandpipers. Odd that this version of the film hasn`t turned up somewhere.

Yes, I've got the Italian video release on Domo Video. Widescreen, 120m 32s. A fan sub would be nice.

come to think of it, I know a guy who's friends with Veruschka. I'll ask him if she knows anything about the possibility of a release of her film.

What's the quality usually like on those official DivX's? I've seen them for sale over at DVD.it and always wondered how they looked.

Yes, I've got the Italian video release on Domo Video. Widescreen, 120m 32s.
I've got the Rete4 version which is lbx with a runtime of 115m.54s though the end credits are cut short.
Also noticed that,like LA DONNA INVISIBILE,the Topfilm fotonovel has some scenes in a totally different order to the film.
