what? where? x 2 here!
25 April 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As much as I hate to admit it.....this ghastly Yvonne De Carlo bargain counter costumer had TWO releases in Australia......the first with a Jungle Jim epic CANNIBAL ATTACK......imagine that on the cinema marquee or worse, having to answer the telephone and say THAT to a prospective client.........the first in 1954 at the crumbling CAPITOL THEATRE a 2500 seat atmospheric soon to be the home of AIP extravaganzas......then it was re released AGAIN here in 1965 as a double feature with.....wait for it......can it be......the much demanded........COME September again all at The Sydney CAPITOL. What madness decided this? Wouldn't it be reasonable to expect PILLOW TALK to be reissued instead !? with COME September. ......God only knows why VEILS OF BAGDAD copped it so sweet because it helped the population of Australia be so attracted to costume epics and want to make them ourselves.
