Welles Rarity On DVD For First Time In U.S.!
Henstooth Video releases the sadly neglected BLACK MAGIC starring Orson Welles (see the recent Sept. 2012 VC review)! This stylized film would look stunning on blu-ray! I'm not sure if this title is PD or not (anybody know?) but hopefully the source print will be as good as the European DVD. Despite the so-so reviews the film has been plagued with over the decades, this is a solid, visually rich film but then again, I'm pretty much obsessed with the real-life Cagliostro and his true historical exploits. Contrary to popular belief, Welles' career did not rise and fall with CITIZEN KANE. If you're a Welles fan, this film is a must-see.
