Sette volte sette/Seven Times Seven  (1968)

Anyone seen this fabulously fun crime caper from Michele Lupo? I've watched it a few times but it's one of those titles that is rare as hell.

Only got a copy in Italian and have never got around to watching it. Was there ever an English version on home video?

Ahhh, I found the thread! You MUST watch this great movie. Just been in my storage and found an English langauge print. P&S if I remember correctly.

I'd love to see it in English, Ray Lovelock's got a tiny role in this if I remember correctly.

I noticed the other day a Greek one on ebay.
Where's your one from jay because this one is apparently longer than most prints

It says this in the description:

 "Rare  80's greek  UNCUT (105' instead of 92' at imdb!) VHS"

But we know imdb can't always be trusted

I've heard about there being different length edits of this film before. The Italian language copy I have is 105 minutes.

Thanks for the heads up about the Greek vid Tanzi  :D

I was gonna go for it but the cover looks a bit too worn for my liking.

It's a Lovelock film I've never seen so might as well try and pick it up if I can get it cheap enough. Never seen a copy in English before.

Likewise. But with the English language print, why not consider a fan dub?

I thought Sette volte sette was a really entertaining comedy heist movie. I loved the scenario and I loved the actors - especially Gastone Moschin. Michele Lupo must have a soft spot for England because he set several of his movies there. Has anyone noticed how after the success of Sette uomini d'oro/Seven Golden Men (Marco Vicario, 1965) there were a whole bunch of heist movies released with the word 'Seven' in the title? Vicario, incidentally, is the producer of Sette volte sette.

I have the Italian Golden release (105 mins) which is sadly full screen - I heard from an Italian collector that there was another release which was widescreen.

Well I lost out on the Greek VHS...

I'd still like to actually watch this film in English...

Hey Jonny,

It'll be on its way shortly along with an amusing Italo spy thiller: Spies Strike Silently.

Moschin certainly was very good in this as was Adolfo Celi hamming it up as the prison governor.Very cool to see plenty of mid 60's London as well-alot of which has been demolished now.

Anyone up to doing a fan dub of this?

Jonny: did you see the English print?

I have the Greek tape and it is definitely the uncut version. Most english language versions are missing the scenes with Lovelock and Erika Blanc. Really fun film.

Ooof...I had the English dubbed Greek VHS to this and sold it on eBay about 2 years back for something stupid like £3.99 Buy It Now. Seems like I should have hung onto it. From what I remember it was very badly cropped and had a rubbish cover. Wasn't a bad film though - I just wish I'd made a DVD-R copy before I sold it.

Is he definitely in it?Watched it again last night and still can't find him,did however spot Westminister Hall in Victoria Street which was used as the Royal Mint in it and is still home to a long running film fair every few months.

Hi to all. (http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/1143/helloxb.gif)

I 'm a new member from Greece, and need some help about this movie :

I have a copy of "7x7", but it is in Hungarian language.

Can (anyone) upload an English, or (at least) Italian copy, for me ? (http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/4543/redfaceh.gif)

Thanks. (http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2069/efxaristo.gif)

Hi Cranky,

You're probably better off trying some of the more well-known 'cult film' private trackers if you'd like free films. This board is more for discussions than file sharing.

Drop me a PM and I can point you in the right direction.

Τhanks, for your response.

I read Terms of Service, but I didn't see any forbiddance about sharing. (http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/standart/dntknw.gif)

Anyway, I can't send you p.m. because

You're OK to share DVD-R's between members on here, we don't host links for downloads though. Like Luca said you'll be best off going down the bit torrent route and joining a private tracker site like CG (C i n e m a g e d d o n). Google it and it'll be at the very top of the results page.


New members can't send PM's I'm afraid. Sorry. Like CG we like to operate a 'put in to get back' program on here, it's to discourage people joining up and messaging people for copies of films without actually putting anything back into the community in the way of discussion on the boards. On CG if you don't do your fair share of 'seeding' and just take, take, take you get booted off. On here if you don't participate in the discussion by posting you don't get PM privileges to contact other members.


I think that's fair enough.

Νο, I don't think so.
In most of Greek sites, any registered user can communicate with others, for any reason.
Also, there is no notification about it in "Help page (http://www.lovelockandload.net/forum/index.php?action=help)".

In other hand, I do not like to post any stupidity, in order to accede the rank for pm's.
This (in Greece) is considered as spamming. (http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/remake/nono.gif)

Thanks a lot for your response.

Bye. (http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/remake/bye.gif)
