-> BLU-RAY review
Three short stories by Edgar Allan Poe: 1. "Metzengerstein"; 2. William Wilson (orig.:"Spirits of the Dead"); 3. Toby Dammit (ENGL. SOUNDTRACK also!!; orig.: "Never Bet the Devil Your Head") + three directors (Vadim, Malle + Fellini): This sums up to another compilation feature so fashionable in the 60s (Rogopag RoGoPaG [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format Edition) [Blu-ray] [1963
]; Boccaccio 70; The Witches, etc.; see also BB's autobio for her recollections of the coming together of this project). Federico Fellini's "Toby Dammit" surely is the highlight here.
"Metzengerstein" in my view being the Fonda siblings' (Jane and Peter) only joint on-screen effort ever. Well-made BD edition with fairly good picture quality incl. 60 pages booklet, except for subtitles which are sort of free form and don't follow original spoken dialogue.
