So, since it was on sale (about $11) I ordered the "Vincent Price - MGM Scream Legends Collection" box set, hoping that the 2-sided disk would work in this set. Must be the same disk pressing in that package, because both Dr. Phibes movies have the exact same defect. I didn't even bother returning this one, as all the other disks work fine, and I'm now sure a replacement would be defective again.
I just ordered used copies of both movies in their original individual releases. I sure hope the older copies work, as I have not yet received them.
These are all great movies, but I gave this review 2 stars, only for the fact that two of the movies don't play.
BTW, have a look at the reviews in Amazon, com, and you'll see I'm not the only one with this problem with the Dr. Phibes movies.
The movie concerned one Dr Phibes who was terribly injured/disfigured in a car accident on his way back to see his wife who had died suddenly during an operation.It was believed by everyone that Phibes had died in that car wreck and he vowed vengeance on the 10 people who in some way had had a hand in her death.He invoked the ancient Hebrew plague of the pharoahs on them all,which spoke of ten terrible deaths by such things as locusts,rats,boils,etc.He is aided in his killings throughout by a pretty but deadly nymph by the name of Vulnavia.Police inspector Trout(Peter Jeffrie)and chief Waverly(John Gator)always seem to be a step or two shy of Phibes most of the time.When they finally manage to catch up to the next victim while he's still breathing,they still lose him when he gets killed right before their eyes.Things are getting down to the last and that victim,Dr.Vesalius(Joseph Cotton),has his son kidnapped by Dr Phibes as bait to lure him into his trap.He has the son pinned to a bed,above which are tubes that acid will soon flow from if Dr Vesalius can't get the key to free him in time;the key being INSIDE of his son! Vesalius works feverishly and frees him just in the nick of time.Read more ›
