Yes, it's not a legend or a deleted announcement...I bought it from Memos shop ages ago. I watched it and it was rather mediocre so I sold it for 20 GBP.

I was too young and I knew nothing, I wish I had never sold it :(

In fact I was so stupid that I didn't hold even a copy for myself. My opinion back then was "if you don't like it sell it or trade it with something better". I couldn't imagine how rare it was, in fact it was one of the first tapes I bought. I remember Memos shop had most of the Sunset/Sunrise VHS for sale still sealed, not fake bootlegs but those originals for rental. I bought all Rollin films there. The shop had tons of rarities but I bought only a few because I didn't know what the rest were about. My God, how could I be so stupid? :angry:

I remember the cover - you know General Video covers have a picture into a TV screen. It had the leading actress' face only, nothing special, but even that face alone was bizarre, with a strange look...

Greece was a paradise for impossible-to-find films in english uncut versions! You're lucky living there!

This one was released on VHS here (by Taurovideo) but as it is stared Marcello Mastroianni and Jacqueline Bisset didn't think it would be a giallo. But is it a giallo (as we know it) or just partial?
'Salvare la faccia' is not a giallo!!!

It is a thriller in "comedy Italian style", to say so.
It is adapted from a famous Italian giallo novel, "La donna della domenica" (=The Sunday lady) by novelists Fruttero and Lucentini.
It's a good film, not a giallo like Argento and the likes, but still a good film.
