I used to have the Italian language tape on Nocturno which was uncut and contained the H/C inserts and to be honest found it a bit boring,the opening scenes of New York's 42nd St are good though.

I got my copy off Lefteris and it seems to have the H/C stuff in it, at least from the first 20 minutes I watched. Some porno loops showing a woman 'pleasuring' herself...

How about Bridgette Petronio's pussy being used as a pocket in a game of pool or Christian Borromeo being slapped around the face with a big dildo? Wanna watch it now?

No! Marc was bidding on it too but we were both outbid.  :-[

But members of this forum aren't supposed to bid against each other  :D

I don't think Marc even looks at the bidding. I think he sees the item when it's listed and puts a snipe on it and never checks back until the auction has ended.

I think.  :D

I dug out my old tape of this recently.  It's a copy of the Italian widescreen tape (complete with jumping picture) with the English dubbed soundtrack added.  Despite the mixed reviews on here I found it entertainingly sleazy in Master Joe's indimitable style.  Not as controversial or as jaw-dropping as as Emanuelle in America or his Caligula but enough to make you want to take a shower afterwards.

Is this still going to get a proper DVD release?

here's hoping so.
With an interview with Brigitte Petronio (who still works in the Italian film industry) would be good. The Uk tape was very cut I believe

Indeed it seems to be.  The number of times the tape lapses to the original Italian dialogue is testimony to this.  Mind you it's also a good indicator that something untoward is going to happen. :-\

The proposed DVD release was cancelled as the rights owner wants too much money, and with falling DVD sales it just wasn't worth licensing.

The Treasures Of Pleasure Are For Sale In The Pleasure Shop On 7th Avenue!

Two crooks hold up a drug store in New York - unfortunately for them it is under the protection of the local mob boss, and they flee with $5,000 and hide out briefly in a porno Shop run by the good looking girlfriend of the local gang boss. They take her hostage, and drive off in her car to meet the black hustler who had set up the job. The three criminals decide their only option to escape the mob is to drive to Canada and hide out, and they plan to spend one night of the journey indoors by breaking into an empty country house near the border.

The CG Italian DVD is 'Version Integrale', runs 1hr 29mins 27secs.  All the hardcore parts are present.  Nice print too.  Italian Language only but does come with Italian subtitles if anyone feels like translating them.

Plenty of third part sellers selling it for around a tenner, including one 'fulfilled by Amazon'.  Who would have thought it!!

Suppose an English friendly Blu-Ray disc is out of the question, but there again who knows.
