November 21, 2008 The last Dario Argento movie still not on DVD is about to get a release. "Four Flies on Grey Velvet" will be released by Myra Communications February 24 in the U.S.
Extras include the teaser trailer, original trailer, English opening and closing credits and extensive poster and photo gallery. This film is the third in Dario Argento's Animal Trilogy in the early 1970s that started with "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage" and "The Cat o' Nine Tails". It currently is the only film of his that is unavailable on VHS or DVD in a legitimate version, either domestically or internationally with the exception of the long out of print obscure French VHS. Digital bootlegs show up on P2P sites with poor quality in image and sound. The rights to this film (at least in America) are owned by Paramount, which had chosen not to release it. Copies of varying quality are available from numerous online conversion sources.
