THE GIRL FROM RIO versions
Hard to find Liberty Home Video / VCI VHS
aka Rio 70/La Ciudad Sin Hombres
1969 – Dir: Jess Franco
There are a number of alternate versions of this 1968 Jess Franco-Harry Alan Towers crime/spy/adventure, shot in Rio and and Spain, featuring Richard Wyler, George Sanders and Maria Rohm. The BU Blu-ray is probably the best looking alternative but I actually prefer the shorter German version with alt footage not in the English language versions, including an opening Armored Car heist which is one of the best action scenes Franco ever directed. It also has alt credits and score. I’ll be posting more on the various version here in the future, along with some caps.
Thanks to Bill Knight…
