Got a dvd-r of this a couple of months ago and I enjoyed it immensely, it's one of those Brit Films with a unique atmosphere that you can't pin down. It's a really strange little thriller/black comedy to be sure but it's well worth watching.

I thought I had read this was getting a DVD release soon along with other lesser known brit films particulary from Hammer's vaults like there STRANGLERS OF BOMBAY  ::), TERROR OF THE TONGS and others.

Redemption/Jezebel were supposedly putting it out but it's all gone cold of late and the word on the street is that it's not going to happen.

I've seen the Salvation schedule and it goes through to October/November, and there's no mention of it.

Jonny, I have originals of the American and Dutch video releases. Both are much nicer looking than your screen caps above.

The other title Redemption were going to release alongside GIRLY was Alan Gibson's GOODBYE GEMINI (1970). I also have the American and Dutch video releases of this one too. The US title is TWINSANITY.

What about WHAT BECAME OF JACK AND JILL?  I heard this was somewhat similar or related to GIRLY.
Title: Re: Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly (Freddie Francis, 1969)
Post by: MarcMorris on 03 Apr 2008 - 12:12
That is one bizarre and twisted movie. Quite nasty - and very dark. Have you seen it? It stars Vanessa Howard, who was also in GIRLY - other than that they're not really related. It's a Twentieth Century-Fox Film and I very much doubt they'll be issuing this one any time soon. I got a copy of a guy in the US who transferred his original 16mm print to video.
Title: Re: Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly (Freddie Francis, 1969)

I haven't seen it but its in ETC's catalogue so its probably a copy of that 16mm version.

Just watching it now and was wondering... The house featured in this is Oakley Court. Were the interiors actually filmed inside Oakley Court for this? Looks like it is to me, very good sets if it isn't.
Title: Re: Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly (Freddie Francis, 1969)
Post by: Jonny on 08 Apr 2008 - 21:51
Very minor spoilers ahead...

There's a scene in this where Sonny bashes out a door panel with an axe, as the occupant of the room is trying to escape. All through the scene I'm thinking this is ripping off 'The Shining' but then I realised this film was made 10 years earlier than Kubrick's and when the panel finally gives way Sonny pops his head through the panel and shouts - in his best Brit schoolboy accent - "Hello!"

(http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/5928/hellojd5.jpg)


Funny how when we see a door being bashed in with an axe and then a face poking through it we always seem to think of Kubrick's film isn't it?

A rather odd but enjoyable movie - agreed?
Title: Re: Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly (Freddie Francis, 1969)
Post by: Jonny on 08 Apr 2008 - 22:13
Agreed.

I really rate it actually and would dare say it's in my top 10 favourite films. The way the characters talk, using children's playground speak is one aspect I really liked.

"You remember Tony Chestnut?"

"Toe, Knee, Chest, NUT!"

Vanessa Howard in her schoolgirl uniform helps things along nicely too.

Found this on wiki...

Whatever Happened To Vanessa Howard (http://api.ning.com/files/z9pQTE38wNdFAastBthpiDu*plCxUi46Vv1zYe6i7eM=/vanessahowardcinxdsc001dq7.jpg)

Michael Bryant makes for most unlikely male 'escort' I'd ever imagined but he's really great in this. Great film.

She looks very cute too in SOME GIRLS DO, the follow-up to DEADLIER THAN THE MALE.

If you haven't seen these two then you simply must! They are essential viewing for fans of Eurotrash.

The film was released on tape in the US by Prism but I don't recall if it was a Joseph Brenner theatrical release or a Cinerama one (Prism released titles from both catalogs).

I am trying to get some more info and will share it if I can.  Over the weekend I found a nice 30 second trailer for GIRLY, a US TV spot.  Completely forgot I had it.
 I just sent an email to see if it's needed and where to send a copy.

Of course it'd be more fun between her legs, but then we'd have a slightly different film between our limbs.
I prefer the UK cover.  I wonder if it will have any unique extras or if like GOODBYE GEMINI, it'll be a copy of the R1?
Never cared for the US poster...the girl doesn't look like Vanessa Howard to me.
The head isn't supposed to be severed, as the kids bury one of their 'friends' up to his neck in the film.
The image makes it seem like he's looking up at her and begging her not to chop off his noggin, which never happens in the film.

There were no extras mentioned on the press release – I would guess that they’re the same as those on the US disc. That was certainly the case with GOODBYE GEMINI if memory serves me right.

They said their allocation is 300, I don't think they can put that high on the stock levels shown as they keep topping up a bit, it said there was twenty something left last night, either way all four titles seem to be going down rapidly.

Just pre-ordered this from Diabolik, 73 left now of their quota apparently...

Came to about £22 all in.
They said their allocation is 300, I don't think they can put that high on the stock levels shown as they keep topping up a bit, it said there was twenty something left last night, either way all four titles seem to be going down rapidly.

Yeah, it's up and down like a yoyo which is why I got my order in. Didn't want to miss out on this one.
Me neither, I wanted Short Eyes and was too late.

I ordered it with Don't Answer The Phone. Didn't want to miss out either.

All this ltd ed stuff is getting a bit annoying though. Still waiting to buy a couple of the Code Red ones because I wasn't around when they were briefly up at Diabolik. It'd be okay if they were available to order all the time.

I'd expect Short Eyes to be back at Diabolik sometime. It's only available otherwise through Kino and I really can't see him selling 1000+ just through there.

Short Eyes is back in at Diabolik now actually.

Watched mine last week with the wife. Was not at all what I expected, a very interesting film though, especially for its time. It freaked my wife out quite a bit. Not sure I'll ever watch it again though.

Mine arrived a couple if days ago. Might get a chance to watch tonight. It's back at Diabolik for anyone that missed it.
