At long last, the final film of French actress Francoise
Dorleac can be seen in all it's glory. Rumours that MGM
had several times in the past come close to releasing
this film can now come to rest -- it's here! Despite the
fact that the studio had to omit 15 seconds of a scene
(due to the fact that someone was playing a Beatles record
in the background), the cut doesn't detract from the story
From beginning to end the story is captivating as the
mystery of Michael Cain's assignment begins to unfold.
Can he trust his friend Karl Malden? Can he trust the
beautiful Francoise Dorleac? Can he penetrate Ed Bagely's
organization to prevent a third world war from taking
place? Time is running out and this beautifully
re-mastered print (in the letterbox format) really helps
brings the story to life.
While the DVD lacks any special extras
(no trailers, no interviews, no featurettes, etc.)
it does come with a variety of soundtracks
(English, German, French, Italian,and Spanish).
Also, one has a choice of subtitles (French,
Dutch, Norwegian, and Greek).
Now, at last, fans of Ms. Dorleac can own her final
film performace and can once again witness the magic
she had on film. Truly she was headed for international
fame when tragedy struck in June 1967. Now, MGM has
shared with us her final moment of screen glory.
