Any red-blooded male WILL LOVE this film if you enjoy watching movies. It's a society that you will, at least twice in your life, dream of being in.
If you are a woman you will probably hope for it more than twice. Perhaps it is already reality for you.
I was exposed to this movie via the Hammer Trailer extra DVD included on another DVD and had to order it right away. I've seen this film only once before - probably chopped up on TV. Unfortunately the male lead is never truly dominated by The Goddess Kari -- "yeah" for some of you and a negative for others.
Well, I only judge the films by the quality of the DVD. This one is three stars -- the middle of the lot. Pure mono soundtrack, however it does not fade during loud parts. The picture is not too bad, a nice widescreen presentation at 2:35 to 1 and it's not totally clear but for a 1966/1967 films it sits well with me.
Most ordinary people probably won't like this movie -- and I can tell that already by the reviews, but if you are building a Hammer collection this should be included. I would like to go back in time to see how this film was received when originally released. I can almost hear the guffaws! Personally, I like it a lot and it's one that I will watch more than once per year.
What's the best part of this movie? Martine Beswick -- just like everyone else says! Her appeal is powerful, and the Hammer studios captured it.
