Title: Vaya luna de miel (Jess Franco, 1980)
Post by: Funktion on 17 Aug 2020 - 14:13
Earlier this year, the Filmoteca EspaƱola made available online a "lost" Jess Franco film, Vaya luna de miel, which was never released to the cinemas, and whose whereabouts were unknown for almost 40 years.

The film, a light comedy/adventure loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold-Bug, is a bit of an unusual entry is his filmography, and if it wasn't for Lina Romay prancing around naked (or close to it) it could almost pass as a kids flick.  :-\
It's good fun.

The film remains available on Vimeo, with English subtitles.
Since there's no planned Blu-Ray release (apparently, there are some rights issues that may prevent one from happening any time soon) it's well worth a look.

Also, the Filmoteca EspaƱola has a PDF with information about the film, its restoration, poster art, and more, here:
