The Great Lilli Palmer's scenes mostly cut from the video I bought
6 November 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The 68 minute version that I bought on video cut out most of Lilli Palmers scenes which is a pity since she is why I bought the film.. The original film runs apparently some 20 minutes longer. I assume Lilli is in most of it.. Too bad..The film is pretty good but the dark haired leading lady who I looked up and only made a handful of films is far inferior to Miss Palmer. They should have cut out HER scenes instead. The film might have been worthwhile but not in this cut version. I was very disappointed. They should release it either in video or DVD with the whole film intact. I don't know why they had to cut it since it only has an 83 minutes running time.. beats me.
