Love the packaging and the extras, but missed the Spanish variant and would have preferred THE SEDUCERS complete and the German VHS a 10 min bonus.  The image of the Italian is a bit rough on my 40" in the long shots, I'd never have guessed it was from a neg.  But such a huge step up, and colors are vibrant.   It's just great to have this film showered with some love and affection though, so thank you very much for this one.  I appreciate the effort that went into releasing this.

Thanks so much for your kind words!

But you can be half happy now, since you basically own the Spanish version now minus the Spanish audio track :-\. The Italian version is identical to the Spanish one except for the language and some music cues here and there that are different, plus, you get the extended goat scene in the Italian version which was more or less cut in Spain.

The US version is the more interesting one as there are some scenes that were edited a little differently plus the alternative nudie shots of course. Both are included in the Additional Scenes section, and the US language track is synched to the Italian version which is also interesting since the dubbing is pretty crazy and the music has also been substituted with alternate tracks. So basically the US version is more or less conserved in the set as well. The German version was included because A) the VHS has a better quality than the dreadful US one, and B) the German version doesn't only have additional scenes but was also heavily cut, which makes it even more interesting (also because this is a German release and the German version has lots of fans -- and we could also do the interview with G√ľnter Hendel which makes the presence of the complete German version all the more important).

Oh my, what a rant, but since there are so many different versions out there and only few  people really know which one is which and what's different, I guess it's okay to write all these lines here... We tried to produce the set that makes the most sense and features everything you can possibly own of TOP SENSATION without going with a 4 disc set or something that features additional versions in bad quality that in the end no one really wants to watch. Not to mention the costs...

Since the negative was in such bad shape due to regrettably poor storage conditions, a blu-ray wouldn't have made much sense either since the shortcomings of the negative would have been all the more visible in HD. Believe me, some films are better off in SD.

Now you know what went on in our minds when we were working on this release.  :-\

I hope you all have fun with the set despite the sometimes tough decisions we had to make! And thank you so much for the support we receive(d) from all of you! I can't tell you how much we appreciate it! Without your help, this release would not have been possible in this shape.

My copy arrived today from Diabolik  ::)


... the US language track is synched to the Italian version which is also interesting since the dubbing is pretty crazy and the music has also been substituted with alternate tracks.


I'm so glad that you guys did this as the US version has a far superior soundtrack in my opinion - especially during the 3 way lesbian scene. The music in the Italian version is suitably dreamy but the US soundtrack was the one I was used to and packs moe fo a punch. The Spanish soundtrack was terrible during this scene, so I'm happy that's been ditched.


I think with so many different versions out there it would have been difficult to please everyone, especially those who have seen all of the different variants and had their own idea of how they would have preferred the release to be (I am also speaking for myself here) - but you guys deserve the utmost credit for getting it out there in the first place. Thank you once again and please keep up the same level of quality for future release.We all appreciate it and will continue to support what you do.

Apparently 'Filmbar 70' will be showing it on Friday 27th Sept, for their "Final blow out" at the Roxy Bar and Screen, 128 Borough High Street. London, the venue is changing hands alas ! Good timing because it's my birthday weekend also !

Watched all the extras on the DVD tonight - The main set of interviews are amazing, I love how everyone remembers the shoot so well, there's some amazing anecdotes from everyone involved. Rosalba is amazing, we need more interviews with her!

Interesting to hear about them putting salt on Edwige's knees to get the goat to play ball... The clips remind you of just how dodgy that scene looks despite how un-dodgy it really was when filmed.

I started skimming through the photo novel extra which gave me a chuckle...
