Title: Persecution (Don Chaffey, 1974)
Post by: Jonny on 29 Oct 2009 - 11:26
Anyone have any info on this Ralph Bates, Lana Turner film from Tyburn?

Seems to have had a UK (VHS?) release on the 'Taste of Fear' label.

I'd be interested to know if there's a definitive version released anywhere on home video.

I don't have any more info about the film other than it's good, and you're welcome to a copy of my vhs-rip mate.

I have the old Rank pre-cert. Isn't there an Italian DVD?

Can't seem to find one if there is.

If it was a translation of the English title it would be Persecuzione. I think.

Have done some searches based on actors, director and writers - am coming up blank.

PERSECUTION was first released on tape in the US under that title on Electric Video (one of the older US video companies).  You can find used copies on eBay for around $20.

It was then re-released on tape in the mid-eighties as THE GRAVEYARD by VCL (SP) and Interglobal (EP mode or LP mode, I think).  The Interglobal can usually be found for under $10.

I think I'm confusing it with another film, sorry. No Italian DVD.

None of the Tyburn films seem to have made the jump to legit DVD.

Sadly true, my bootlegs of Legend of the Werewolf & The Ghoul were a labour of love but no substitute for an official release.
Jonny told me they might be coming out which caused great excitement but it hasn't happened yet.. any more news on that?
