Dropout (Tinto Brass, 1970)

Does anyone know if this Tinto Brass film starring Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero has had a VHS release anywhere in the world?

Not available anywhere. Damn shame. Its companion piece La Vacanza has had a video release in Italy.

I've got Dropout, which has suddenly become available from an amateur 16mm telecine.
But my transfer on DVD-R is missing some minutes of video (but not of audio luckily), so we're trying to put our hands on other versions (e.g. the censored TV broadcast, etc.) in order to create a complete and composite watchable version. Quality isn't the best unfortunately, here're some screens

Great to see screen grabs from this! Looks like a must-see

looks VERY interesting. I love early Tinto Brass, Yankee and Col Cuore In Gola are great comic-styled genre-variations. Have yet to see Nerosubianco and Howl, and apparently there's more fantastic stuff to be discovered (and released!!!) from his pre-Caligula-phase.

Lots more on Dropout - and other rarities - at RJ Buffalo's comprehensive Tinto Brass site, including the fact that some of the sculptures in the film later ended up in Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange.
