I remember asking an Italian video shop owner to part with his tape years ago (around 1999/2000) when I worked in Sicily briefly... It was then that I learnt how difficult it was to get Italian rental shops to part with just about anything. Later in Rome, seeing if a guy would part with Fulci's Silver Saddle, I got the same reply inferring that each tape was like gold-dust to them... (even low-key titles I cannot imagine anyone back then renting out.)
With the advent of dvd this has all changed, of course.
I haven't seen this sleazy gem for years, Marc, if you want me to sub a composite print I'd be more than happy to take up the challenge. I don't remember this being such a talky film so it shouldn't take too long.
Send me a PM when you're ready and I'll send you my address here in Italy.
