It's a JVC Progressive scan that's about two-three years old.

Cameron, as I'm sure you probably will, please post here if you find out if these are region free as I'll do the same.

How can you tell if they are "officially" region free? As I said they work in three players and none of these are supposed to play other regions.

The box doesn't say anything about region, but it does say COLOUR/PAL.

I have and adore Faster Pussycat, and it plays in all my players as well. I have a few, and it even plays in the ones that aren't supposed to be region free. If you look on the back box art, which you can see at dvdprofiler, there is a 0 on the back with like a square around it. That probably means it is region 0. At least, that is my best bet for what it means.

I believe you've seen my thread about these flicks when they came out.

http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...ght=russ+meyer

I started the thread in April and at the time cdwow had them for $15.95 w/shipping.

Russ Meyer's Faster Pussycat... Kill! Kill! $15.95
Russ Meyer's Supervixens $15.95
Russ Meyer's Vixen $15.95
Russ Meyer's Beneath The Valley Of The Ultravixens $15.95
Russ Meyer's Up! $15.95
Russ Meyer's Mondo Topless $15.95



Since then the price has gone up there.

They just put out some more DVDs as I mention in the thread. I found a guy on eBay selling three of them-w/multiple listings of each. His shipping was high-4 pounds for the first and 2 pounds each after that-but I got them for opening bid or close to it so they were about $9 each.

So after shipping the cost was $41 or just under $14 each. Not a bad deal!

Find him on eBay and you'll be set. I think he's selling the first ones as well. His name is wadsey.

I own the new Arrow Films UK DVD's for Faster Pussycat, Vixen and Supervixens. I can confirm that these DVD's are region 0 as they play without problems on my portable Audiovox DVD player and PC DVD player as these two units are not affected by the PAL issue. They do appear to be PAL however as they do not play correctly on my Pioneer or Panasonic DVD Players. For those whom the DVD's worked on your non PC or portable DVD player, is your unit a multi region player with a PAL to NTSC converter? Again I cannot operate these on a standard US DVD player due to the PAL issue. The region is not the issue as they are definitely region 0.

I have the Region 2 with all the extras! I also own the Australian disc of "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls": nice widescreen presentation but no extras.

The question is: are you man enough for me!

If you're a woman, yes. If you're a man, no.
