5.0 out of 5 stars 1.33:1 ? NOT REALLY!!! February 18, 2008
Format:DVD
The original fifteen or so written novels about the Courtesan Angelique were incredibly popular worldwide in the Fifties and Sixties and the series of five motion pictures were produced in the late 1960's as a joint French-Italian-German collaboration. - The huge input of talent, budget and production values oozes off the screen. No Computer gimmicks here - just sheer gloss, action and pleasure.
I purchased the French Box Set from Amazon UK some time back and the five films were beautifully presented in original DyaliScope (CinemaScope) with restored color and French language. All five Trailers were also included.
My five taped-off-TV in the late Seventies VHS copies still play well and are still very watchable (and in English language) but were naturally only standard screen cut-downs.
If a further updated set is not in Widescreen then why bother? The French Set is worth Ten Stars and the vision supersedes any problems with not understanding the dialogue!
However, for those who have never seen these five brilliant and extremely entertaining movies, I urge anyone to buy this Box Set just to have these Classics in your Home Library.
And yes, the haunting Music Score by Michel Magne is truly wonderful - I was lucky to obtain the overseas pressing of the priceless LP at a Collectibles Fair a few years ago.
These five movies are Gems and have given me many repeated hours of pleasure over the years since 1978 both on VHS and the recent French DVD copies - several times the five have been watched in tandem - they are that entertaining.
And Michelle Mercier - a truly beautiful Actress from the late Sixties era when the films were made, who was ideally cast in the title role. Her husband is played by Robert Hussein who gives an equally lifelike performance in all five films.
My favourite is ANGELIQUE AND THE SULTAN.

HAPPY VIEWING - TAKE THE PLUNGE WITH THIS SET OF ANGELIQUE DVD's - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

The movies are in Widescreen and in both French and English dubbed versions. The transfers are the best you can get, as with all Lionsgate products.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Journey Continues March 6, 2008
Format:DVD
As Eric Glasby urges anyone to buy this box set just to have these "Classics" in your home Library, I agree whole heartily; for Angelique is indeed a "Classic". Like the movies lovers who have viewed this Classic in tandem and have received hours of pleasure so have the readers of Angelique. The Angelique books proved an international success of gigantic proportions. Estimates of the total number of Angelique books sold worldwide are upwards of 150 million, and they have been translated and published in at least 63 countries, by at least 320 different publishers, in over 20 different languages. Given these numbers, there are only a small percentage of readers who are aware there is indeed an end to the series of Angelique. There are 3 more volumes that have never been translated and Anne Golon is striving to finish the end to Angelique's journey. There are millions of people that have read the Angelique series who are unaware that the story continues let alone they have been deprived of the knowing the story in its full context.
I urge anyone to visit: FriendsofAngelique@yahoogroups.com and [...] to learn the "rest of the story".
Happy Viewing, take the plunge. To quote Joffrey de Peyrac, as he and Angelique sailed to the shore of Quebec "Let the Journey begin".

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelique at the Movies March 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Hello to all of you globally who support the memory of Angélique - I'm reproducing my amazon.co.uk review where I have also posted images - please visit and see the recent and past photos of the author, now sadly widowed and completing her series by not only writing but also researching the background.

Where can one begin a review of this iconic heroine and do her and her creators justice? I seem to have known or been involved with Angélique throughout my adult life - I read the first book when I should have been studying for my A-Levels! My sister introduced me to the books - she felt I should have outgrown my beloved Jean Plaidy and Chalet School books by that age and moved onto something a little more sophisticated - she chose Angélique for me - and what a choice! I have written reviews for these books on Amazons fabulous review facility and according to the statistics they have proved useful to several readers. I hope I may have encouraged others to seek out the now sadly out of print versions, many of which are commanding obscene amounts of money on ebay probably due to being erroneously described as erotic - shame the sellers don't read their books first!
But to the films - I saw the first film - Marquise of the Angels on BBC2 with English sub-titles - I can't remember much of that other than I was so terribly excited that the books had been transferred to film and Michele Mercier did look gorgeous - seemingly Brigitte Bardot and Jane Fonda had turned down the opportunity to become the eponymous heroine. Considering BBs love for animals and political acumen, she might have paid closer attention to Angéliques life which mirrors these two avenues. I digress - a failing of mine.

Somewhere between the pomp and ceremony of the Romy Schneider "Sissi" trilogy, and a series of four Barbara Cartland telemovies in the late 1980's, there is ANGELIQUE. Based on the bestselling book series written by Anne and Serge Golon, we follow Angelique (played by breathtaking French actress Michéle Mercier) through several continents and five movies filled with adventure, bodice-ripping romance, and more than a dash of royal intrigue.

A sprawling saga covering many years and a great sweep of historical events, Angelique (Mercier) is a headstrong young girl, virtually "sold" into marriage to the much older Count Joffrey de Peyrac ("Love on a Pillow"'s Robert Hossein). Covered in facial scars and walking with a limp, Angelique is horrified by her husband, but in true "Beauty and the Beast" fashion soon finds a compassionate heart underneath his less than thrilling exterior. Their happiness is short-lived however, when Joffrey is arrested on charges of sorcery, and Angelique's life is similarly endangered (having overheard a royal assassination plot). And this is only the first movie! The other four titles ("The Road to Versailles", "Angelique and the King", "Untamable Angelique" and "Angelique and the Sultan") follow Angelique's quest, across several continents and a string of lovers, to re-claim her wealth, place in society, and her missing husband.

The "Angelique" titles, churned out in quick succession between 1964-68, were highly successful in their day and still have the potential to thrill audiences with their spellbinding mix of period romance and adventure. It's a total mystery--to me at least--why Michéle Mercier never became a bigger international star, because she certainly had the necessary talent and camera personality. She's perfect as Angelique; her close-ups are stunning.

The DVD boxset is a strictly no-frills affair, but at least all five titles can again be enjoyed by fans old and new. Recommended.

Did you have problems playing DVD #2 side B 'Angelique and the Roy'?
No problem. I do admit it was a bit strange to have 2 films on two sides disc two but then 2 films on one side on disc three but I did work. God I love these movies!
