Rosalba Neri News # 21 - 99 WOMEN Blu-Ray Coming From Blue Underground.

    Bill Lustig over at Blue Underground has announced a forthcoming Blu-Ray release of Jess Franco's 99 WOMEN from 1969. An upgrade to their earlier DVD release, this will be similar to the previous releases of Franco's MARQUIS DE SADE'S JUSTINE (1969) and EUGENIE (1970) this will be a 3 disc set (BLU/DVD/CD Soundtrack). No word yet on extras or release date.
   Featuring a pretty unbelievable cast including Maria Schell, Herbert Lom, Mercedes McCambridge, Luciana Paluzzi, Maria Rohm and of course Rosalba, 99 WOMEN along with Jack Hill's Filipino productions a few years later set the template for the whole women-in-prison exploitation genre during the 70's and 80's.
    It's nice to see Rosalba featured prominently on the cover (and in much better rendition then the Justine cover) and hopefully she'll make it into some of the extras. The reverse cover art will feature the U.S. one sheet art pictured below (which always reminded me at first glance of a paperback book cover for a Gothic romance). 



  1. Is Rosalba is the film a lot? Or is it a smaller part?

    1. She has a fair amount of screen time here. There's a flashback sequence where she does a candlelit striptease that's worth the price of admission alone.
