5.0 out of 5 stars A Royal 60's Euro-Comedy Fit For A King... September 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
[THE QUEENS - (1966) - directed by Antonio Pietrangeli, Mario Monicelli, Luciano Salce and Mauro Bolognini] For those like me, there really is no point in reviewing this film - as soon as I saw it showcased iconic sex symbols and actresses Claudia Cardinale, Raquel Welch, Monica Vitti and Capucine and was from the 60's, I bagged and tagged it immediately and, after screening it, was elated I did. It's a fantastic Italian / French co-production dubbed in English comprised of four comedic vignettes, each one by a notable director. But, for the rest of you and the sake of argument, here are a few more details:

'Queen Sabrina' tells the tale of an attractive hitchhiker (Monica Vitti) who can't seem to make it home without driving each of her drivers mad with passion and having to beat them away before she recycles her predicament. 'Queen Armenia' revolves around a poor, gorgeous gypsy mother (Claudia Cardinale, who never looked better) who meets and takes advantage of a doctor's proper bedside manner (played straight by Gastone Moschin). This tale was my personal favorite - the timing, comedy, plot details and actors were perfect. The third episode, 'Queen Elena', centers on a husband (Jean Sorel) who can't get the seductive wife next door (Raquel Welch in 'splendid form') out of his mind. There's more than a slight resemblance to 'The Stepford Wives' lurking within this tale, though it predates it by almost a decade. The shortest of the four stories, it nonetheless delivers a big smile when it's over, and left me wanting more. My gluttony aside, it's got great scenery, setting and this time, I'm not referring to Raquel.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic 1960's Italian Comedy February 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Other reviewers have stared the problems with this video; that it is not in Italian subtitled in English, but dubbed in English. It would be nice to hear the actual voices of these iconic actresses. Also as has been previously mentioned... the DVD doesn't hop between chapters, it forwards ahead about 10 minutes with each advance to a random spot in mid scene... these technical problems keep me from rating this as a 5 star movie.

I bought this to add to my collection of movies with Raquel Welch in them, but I must say, I have always appreciated the comedic sensibilities of the 1960's Italian film style. Each of the vignettes is marvelous.
