She doesn’t care of her physical appearance until she falls victim to a bad prank made by Mirko, the most popular guy of the town, with whom Miris’ sister is in love. Miris is so frustrated that she decides to commit suicide, but just when she is waiting for the gas to kill her, she finds out that she won a trip to New York. In the USA she meets Baroness Judith von Kemp (Anita Ekberg), who chooses Miris to test a new slimming treatment. Miris’ life won’t be the same anymore and she’ll come back to Italy to get her revenge. Popular Italian pop singer Donatella Rettore along with international star Anita Ekberg lead this teen comedy of the eighties, directed by veteran Umberto Lenzi.

Once there she becomes a TV star and falls in love with Mike (Robert Madison), the cynical and unscrupulous manager of the network. But to find her way she still has much to learn.

CRAVING DESIRE (Graffiante desiderio, Sergio Martino 1993)
Luigi Muscati (Ron Nummi) is a successful man. He is engaged with Cinzia (Simona Borioni), a girl from a wealthy family, and his career is about to step forward thanks to a very profitable business he’s dealing with. During a visit to Naples, he meets his young cousin Sonia (Vittoria Belvedere). No longer the little girl he played with as a child, she has blossomed into a sensuous and provocative young woman. On his return home, Sonia turns up on his doorstep needing a place to stay and he invites her to live with him. From that moment Luigi’s life is transformed from one of quiet stability to insane passion as Luigi falls hopelessly in love with Sonia. He ends his engagement and immerses himself completely in a series of mind-boggling erotic adventures, until Sonia's true nature is revealed. Sell Points / Extras Features- Sexy and provocative, Vittoria Belvedere stars in this unusual and disturbing thriller, directed by the veteran of ‘giallo’ genre Sergio Martino. Available for the first time in US in DVD, Craving Desire is presented full and uncut.


PASSION (Simona, Patrick Longchamps 1975)
While watching a bullfight, Simona (Laura Antonelli) relives a traumatic experience she had when she was younger. Simona and her lover Georges (Maurizio Degli Esposti) had a free and joyful sexual relationship, and used to meet on the beach. One day they spot a girl spying on them; she is the young Marquise Marcelle de Paille (Margot Saint’Ange), who lives almost buried alive in her father’s house. Since the premature death of Marcelle’s mother, her father has developed an ambiguous and obsessive attachment to his daughter and will do everything to keep Marcelle near him. Simona and Georges decide to free Marcelle from her captivity with tragic consequences. Sell Points / Extras Features - One of the first movies with Italian sex symbol Laura Antonelli in the main role, Passion was originally banned by Italian censorship and it was released some years after its completion.


REVENGE OF THE CRUSADER (Genoveffa di Brabante, José Luis Monter 1964)
Seriously wounded in a skirmish with a group of bandits, Count Sigfrido of Treviri (Alberto Lupo) is taken to the nearby castle of the Duke of Brabant, where he is tended by Duke’s daughter Genoveffa (María José Alfonso). The two gradually fall in love and marry shortly after. Once back in Treviri, Sigfrido leaves for the Crusades and asks to his counsellor Golo (Stephen Forsyth) to look after his wife while he’s away. Attracted to Genoveffa, Golo tries to force his attentions on the Countess who rebuffs him. Golo then has her imprisoned and accused of adultery, until she is condemned to death. Sell Points / Extras Features - A sumptuous production from the golden age of Italian studios Cinecittà, The Revenge of the Crusader is a sword and sandal classic, made by cult director Riccardo Freda.

Definitely have my $ for the Argento films. It'll be nice to have the US releases for Door and a better print of Four Flies.

They look like they'll be a fine replacement for NoShame. Here's hoping.

Like to see 'em include English subs on their releases that have Italian audio tracks.

My copy of Door into Darkness shipped. As long as it has English subs, great.

I'd rather have a great print with English subs over extras. Sure, extras can influence a double or (triple) dip, but if it comes down to having either, I'd go for the former.

I think I read in an old AV Maniacs forum thread that BU's extras (interviews) were quite expensive to produce. I can't begin to imagine how much NoShame's extras were. Considering economics now along with the statistics some titles don't break even, I understand the lack of extras for MYA's titles.

I would just love another BU style company in the US that offers a great selection of Eurocult with nice prints and English Subs. The rest is icing on the cake.

For "small" movies like the ones distributed by MYA, the production costs of extras are higher than the film distribution rights. Most companies think twice before loosing their money on extras  :D

Thanks for the info on this title Magnus, I'd looked around for info on this but couldn't find anything. Great news, Edwige films from the late 60's are few and far between. It's a MUST BUY for me.

Cool news about the release of RETURN OF THE GLADIATOR - otherwise better known as THREE GIANTS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. This one was released by German company Marketing Film some years ago but in German language only. It's a very enjoyable little film made after the peplum craze was over and it has a great cast. Some battle scenes are stolen from older peplums in order to save cash but I thought that just added to the fun. Very happy to see this one being rescued from obscurity!  :-\

Hurrah for more Peplums and Erotic comedies on DVD! I hope these sell well as they are sorely lacking.

Perhaps some Spaghetti Westerns will also be forthcoming, lots of those absent on DVD.
