- Featurette with director James Ivory
Top Customer Reviews
Picture and sound are both quite good on this disc and the extra's include the original trailer and a short interview with the director, James Ivory.
So, if you like Miss Welch (and how can anyone not???), check this disc out. You'll love it! Now if only MGM will release "Kansas City Bomber" and Paramount put out "Hannie Caulder", I'd be a really happy camper! - George Bauch,
I remember seeing WP when it was first released, and believe me that was an entirely different movie than is on this DVD. A.I. was known as the distributor that marketed exploitation flicks, so it purchased WP as it was cut to emphasize an orgy sequence.
Ivory is not a sensationalist, if anything his films incorporate sex to advance the story, here the wildness of the party is just a by product of a much richer story.
Raquel, Coco, Bolling and King are all terrific. The wonder of DVD is that this film makes sense, whereas the theatrical version and all the VHS versions do not. This is really an amazing movie that was never released as it was intended. Thumbs up to MGM for releasing this edition.
This DVD restores some of the cut footage such as the infamous orgy scene.
Another plus is the excellent music score.
Expertly directed - same goes for the Art and Costume design - makes a great companion piece to the rarely seen "SAVAGES" another Ivory gem!

Raquel Welch in her prime. The movies intention were originally good, however Mrs. Raquel at that time, was programmatic and not easy to work with, yet the movie is worth watching.Published 7 months ago by Manuel Martinez
