Great flick. Just bought the Blue Underground DVD a couple months ago. I still need to watch that version though.
One of my pride and joy's back in the day was my old dutch Duckling tape ::)

sold it now mind.

Print was pretty horrible though, wasn't it?

Wasn't that bad, at least it was a compromise and not fully panned and scanned

When I'm making enough money I'm gonna buy loads of dvd's at one time once a month and have loads to watch and loads left unopened etc.

I swear you guys make me insanely jealous sometimes  :)

600? Fucking hell. I have absolutely no idea how many unwatched DVDs I have. I've not got them catalogued and don't have time to count them.  :-\

656 to be precise. I'm not buying much at the moment though so that number should drop quite a bit over the next year.

Just finished re-watching this for the first time in a couple of years and it's still a firm fave. I really makes me wish Fulci would have directed a few more gialli during the first half of the 70s.
Like in Lizard, everything just came together in here. Direction, script and cinematography are all well above average. The cast is great (Milian, Bouchet, Bolkan, now that's an all-star line-up!) and the rural setting is really different.
I'm happy with my old Anchor Bay dvd, but I certainly would double-dip if a SE came about. I certainly wouldn't mind the Italian language track, a trailer and a docu with Milian, Bouchet, Bolkan. Doubt that that'll ever happen though, especially now that it's been re-released by BU. That disc is just a straight port of the old AB disc isn't it?

Yes, sir. It's due for an upgrade, it's one of the earliest DVDs I've got and the mastering has improved tenfold since then.

Let’s just say it involves a face bashing against rocks on a cliff face…

Just watched this for the first time.

The falling dummy looked nowhere near real enough so i found that laughably tacky. :o

Otherwise the film is excellent. :D

LIZARD & DUCKLING are two of my favorite Gialli.  ;)   :P

And the settings and atmosphere are completely polar opposites.  Mod ,swinging, anything-goes, late 60s (actually early 70s), cosmopolitan London for LIZARD and rural, superstitious, close-minded, insular, Catholic (with its ancient paganism just below the surface) Italy.  But both films pack a wallop.  ::)

The one thing, however, that does drive me crazy >:(  in LIZARD is Stanley Baker's inane, insane, non-stop whistling.  :-[

Doesnt Florinda Balkan do a great job of internalizing her acting? You can see the emotions brewing under the surface and she uses her eyes to great effect when doing this, especially in Lizard in Womans Skin and Duckling.
