So I saw this last night – Firstly, I'd like to point out this appears to be exactly the same print that's been aired on TV recently – is non-anamorphic 1.85:1 during the credits and becomes fullscreen after they are over. It's a petty grainy print, but one must remember who obscure this film has become and I believe this is the first ever UK home video release, though I could be wrong. Still, the picture is solid enough and appears to be framed quite nicely, even though it's full frame.

The film itself I had not seen before (though I thought I had) and it's an enjoyable, yet generic period class struggle. The girls are hot, Franco suitably mysterious as the Gypsy and there's a wonderful conclusion that I shall say nothing more about. The film is a rather pedestrian for the most part but really comes into its own in the final act. Definitely one to watch, if you like this sort thing.
