Surely one of the weirdest “sex comedies” ever, the story concerns Danielle (’Dany to my friends’), a freelance fashion model in early 1970s France, played here by Sandra Julien of Shiver of the Vampires fame. She wants to buy a car and so is saving the travel portion of her fee for that purpose. To get from gig to gig she hitchhikes. This puts her into numerous dangerous and bizarre situations, including being picked up by a hearse driver who wants to have sex with her UNDERNEATH his hearse, as there’s a corpse in the back; an escaped loony who mistakes sheep for women; a horny Italian countess who’s looking for some kinky sex and flagellation; a hippy who sings rather than talks (and has a big surprise in store for Dany); a crucifix-obsessed butterfly collector; a Byzantine prince in a Rolls Royce; and more...

The disc includes a number of exclusive extras as well as a complete second feature from director Willy Rozier - The Girl Can’t Stop - a gripping and often shocking story of how low some men will stoop to get what they want, and how they use and abuse the women in their lives to get it. The Girl Can’t Stop is graced with a strong cast of European genre film stalwarts at the top of their game, including Greek “blonde bombshell” Zeta Apostolou and the stunningly beautiful Maria Xenia. The film is gripping entertainment right up to its bleak and cynical ending. Both films are newly restored from original 35mm negative.

Director Willy Rozier (1901-1983) was a pioneer of independent productions in his native France. He was perhaps most famous for the number of iconic female stars he discovered, which included Brigitte Bardot and French favorite Françoise Arnoul.

“an offbeat, whimsical sex-comedy… Very French!” Dakota Noot, Letterboxd

“a bold film, ahead of its time, rather sparkling”

“The adventurous and seductive Dany goes astray and gets herself into comical adventures of a sexual nature while hitchhiking.” AV Club
