Upcoming Spy DVDs: Fury In Marrakesh R2
"Agente Segreto" at the Eurospy Forum reports that Fin de Siecle Media, the Swedish company behind the fantastic recent release of Secret Agent Fireball, will release the 1966 Eurospy title Fury In Marrakesh (full review here) on Region 2 DVD February 18. Fury In Marrakesh (aka Death Pays in Dollars) is the second sequel to Secret Agent Fireball, but stars Hatchet For the Honeymoon's Stephen Forsyth as secret agent Bob Fleming instead of Richard Harrison, who played the character in the first two movies. Future giallo-meisters Ernesto Gastaldo and Luciano Martino return from Fireball to write and co-direct, respectively. I haven't seen this movie (yet!), but it gets a very good write-up in The Eurospy Guide. According to Fin de Siecle's website, this PAL DVD will feature an anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen transfer (which will probably be beautiful if Fireball is anything to go by!), English and Italian audio tracks and non-removable Swedish subtitles.
