The Dance of Death released on DVD

One of the French Saint films, Le Saint Mène la Danse, from 1960 has been re-released by Turner Classic Movies on DVD and VHS under the title, The Dance of Death. Leslie Charteris did not think very highly of the film, and forbid it from all English-speaking countries. The producers were able to get around this restriction by changing the title and not mentioning The Saint at all when promoted the film -- it's just a strange coincidence that one of the character's has the name Simon Templar.

Description:
After he's threatened by unknown killers, a playboy millionaire enlists the help of detective Simon Templar. Things soon get even creepier when prowlers are spotted on the grounds of the playboy's mansion, a guard dog is poisoned and the chauffeur is found brutally murdered. Felix Marten and Francoise Brion star in this French entry in "The Saint" series.

Cast: Felix Marten, Francoise Brion, Jean Desailly, Clement Harari, Michele Mercier, Henri Nassiet

Available: VHS or DVD

I've had a good copy of the U.S. release of this film on VHS for years. An interesting film, featuring (at least in the english-dubbed release) our hero as "the famous American detective.." The music is the best part of the film...

NOTE: This is NOT a Turner release as I have found out by ordering the film. The Turner link is for Movies Unlimited which sends you a DVD-R copy by Sinister Cinema, which seems a bit dubious to me. You'd think this was an official Turner release, but its nothing but a DVD-R (and for $18.99 hardly worth it when you consider the average quality and the fact that its origin was NOT disclosed). I'll be contacting Turner on this one...
