Here's a comparison I worked from. I'd love to see that new DVD release.


German DVD: 122m 20s at 25 fps.

1.85

Dubbed into German.

Italian credits.

Visually, this is the best-looking of the three transfers.

The DVD is cut in the following places:

1- 1m 12s. Close-up of the girl inside the van, then a shot of the old woman walking around the van to talk to the driver.

2- 36m 48s. Some dialogue in car missing. just before the girl in the back seat reveals her breasts. Note: this footage is also missing from the Greek tape - it can only be found in the Italian DVD, where it appears between 36m 42s and 36m 50s.

3- 57m 15s. Shot of girl wearing headphones cut at end of scene


------------

Italian DVD

Title: STORIE DI VITA E MALAVITA (RACKET DELLA PROSTITUZIONE MINORILE)

I see that Kult Video has two X-Rated versions listed. One running 122 min & this one running 125 min. Is this just likely to be an error?


Does anyone know if this is indeed a longer version? Seems strange that there are 2 X-Rated versions on the site. I haven't seen the film before, how difficult would it be to follow without an English option?

Cheers. :)

No idea, I bought the previous X-Rated release and I'm a bit hesitant to stump up the cash for the other release without knowing for sure what the actual runing time is.

Might be worth asking Mario at Kult Video if he'll check the runing time for us.

There's quite a bit of important dialogue to follow in the film so watching it without being able to understand what's being said wouldn't be recommended imho.

Thanks for that Jonny. I was going to give it a go (I've used Kult once before for a load of Polizieschi thanks to your recommendation over at Maniacs & they were brilliant), but think I'll hang in the hope of an English friendly release. Patience is a virtue.  :-\

Well it's definitely Lizzani's film,here's the scene with Lidia Di Corato which is featured on the lobbycard you uploaded.

Well thats what i thought but i got confused as after i won them i checked the bbfc and it said the work was rejected,so im assuming they must have made the advertising materials before the decision came back from the bbfc.Has anybody seen any other uk movie paper/cards for the film as im guessing these were a really lucky find.Hell i only got them for £2

According to the BBFC it was rejected on 15/09/1976; however, there is an earlier submission on 04/08/1976 that was passed X with cuts. Incorrectly entered when they built up the database perhaps?

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/AFF018533/ - BBFC 'PROSTITUTION RACKET'

It got passed in 1976 with cuts mate, Eagle Films was the distro and I reckon you can see the 'E' in Eagle Films just before the title on that lobby.

Maybe the BBFC have their dates wrong and Eagle first submitted an uncut version...

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/AFF060314/ - BBFC 'THE PROSTITUTION RACKET'

And when that got rejected they re-submitted it with cuts and took THE out of the title?

EDIT: Damn you to hell COED!!!!  :-\
