Dorado Reveals New Eurospy Cover Art
Dorado Films have released artwork for some previously announced upcoming Eurospy DVDs. The company, now paired with a larger distributor, will get its first wave of DVDs into stores on October 27, among them a reissue of their previous release of the 1965 Ken Clark 077 film From the Orient With Fury (Agente 077 dall'oriente con furore). It may not be the best of Clark's 077 films (that would be Special Mission Lady Chaplin, also slated for re-release from Dorado in the near future), but it's still a fantastic example of Eurospy cinema–and the whole series is essential for fans of the genre. Also set for future release (but still without a date) is the ridiculously fun Eurospy/superhero hybrid The Fantastic Argoman, a masterpiece of the fumetti genre–or, as I like to call it, the costumed adventurer genre. This movie is highly recommended, and judging from the excellent quality of their past releases (and from that cover), Dorado's disc looks to be a vast improvement over the unauthorized version that's been floating around. Read my full review of The Fantastic Argoman here. Thanks to DVD Sleuth for the heads-up on this news.
