This solid transfer,finally in the correct aspect ratio, complete with some great extras, provides a much needed celebration of the multi-talented Ingrid Pitt - a true survivor in a notoriously difficult industry. Ironically - and much to her disgust - Hungarian director Peter Sasdy had concerns about her accent and re-voiced her so I believe Joan Plowright is the voice of the decidedly naughty Countess, we actually hear on the soundtrack. A very strange decision! This release is recommended for fans and for new audiences too who may be rather surprised about how explicit this film actually is. It's such a shame that Ingrid is no longer with us to enjoy this new blu ray too.The print is quite good but not restored and there is often minor damage and significant grain issues in a number of darker scenes.That said, the definition is better than the old DVD and the black levels etc. more acceptable although the contrast is far from perfect in several outdoor sequences but this might be a problem inherent in the original footage. Still the design, costumes and general production values are high and the cast is certainly more than proficient with several talented British actors in supporting roles and Sandor Elés making an unusual but quite effective leading man. His rapport with the flamboyant Ingrid was not very good on set and he found her full blooded voluptuousness rather challenging! This new Blu Ray is worth the investment if you can buy it at around £10 as the extras are guaranteed to interest Ingrid's fans too. A good, well thought out release, with an splendid booklet containing not only the traditional film notes etc but a long, detailed and amusing article on the real Countess written by Ingrid herself that displays both her impressive academic knowledge and lightness of personal touch!
