Ravishing Dany (1972)
A bizarre sex comedy, the story follows fashion model Danielle (lovingly known as 'Dany'), Sandra Julien of Shiver Of The Vampires fame, as she hitchhikes her way from gig to gig to save for a car. The multitude of dangers and peculiarities she encounters along the way, such as a hearse driver desiring to be intimate underneath the hearse, a sheep-mistaking lunatic, a kinky Italian countess, a hippy with a surprise, a butterfly collector obsessed with crucifixes, and a Rolls Royce-riding Byzantine prince, set the stage for Willy Rozier's unique take on independent French production. As an Olympic swimming champion, film genre specialist (action, crime, comedy, thrillers, etc.), and underwater film-making innovator, Rozier discovered and launched the careers of many iconic female stars, such as Brigitte Bardot and Françoise Arnoul.
The Girl Can't Stop! (1965)
Based on a renowned Greek novel, Willy Rozier's Les chiens dans la nuit (Dogs in the Night) was released in the USA as The Girl Can't Stop! and Die Sadisten (The Sadists) in Germany. It's a gripping tale exploring how far some men will go to get what they want, exploiting the women in their lives to do so. Manuel (Georges Rivière) is a man on the brink of financial ruin, having lost his last fortune at the casino. His brutish companion, Manolis, suggests that Manuel can save his faltering business by having his beloved Tassoula, a ravishing beauty, sleep with banker Giorgian Kaledis in order to borrow money from his bank. Tassoula initially rejects the plan, yet finds herself falling for Giorgian, seeing in him a potential escape from her loveless marriage. Nevertheless, to her dismay, the seemingly pure Giorgian is instead a deviant, taking pleasure in having his bald, one-eyed servant Kior Ali assail women. The Girl Can't Stop! boasts a veritable cast of celebrated European cinema veterans, including Greek "blonde bombshell" Zeta Apostolou and gorgeous Maria Xenia. This gripping drama hurtles towards its enigmatic and pessimistic finale.
This limited red case edition includes a full color booklet, with new essay on the film by Jacques Spohr, and reversible cover sleeve art. Limited to 1,200 numbered copies.
