7 Murders for Scotland Yard
A widescreen English language bootleg was released, and now booted in a couple of countries. But it is age-restricted on YouTube. This is a full-frame version, probably from 16mm and in Italian only. It is not my policy to present full films, but these Jose Luis Madrid films do not have any official release and are shown here to stimulate a proper and official release.
The second Madrid film in poor, but subtitled quality.
The play has added at the end the same feature. Based on a real incident. You may recognize some of the music, but it was used here first.
Considering that Madrid's previous film, THE HORRIBLE SEXY VAMPIRE, had abundant nudity, it is despairing that the nude version of this film is still lost. The film in the States may be been a tax shelter, as almost nothing is available in a poster or a pressbook, and was only shown, that we know, in Longview, Texas in 1977. For many years poor quality and full frame dupes were available until a widescreen version turned up. In Europe, things were better for the film, though any nudity was also gone.
Madrid's films with Naschy did not have good luck. THE CRIMES OF PETIOT (LOS CRIMENES DE PETIOT) was never released in the States or dubbed in English. There is also the question of a nude version that seems missing.
Never released in States and never officially dubbed or subtitled in English, this film is a true-life story of the assassination of Spain's Prime Minister, Luis Carrero Blanco by Basque separatists. The deed was spectacular as the car he was in was blown up sky high on a Madrid street. The gritty film featured the music of Angel Arteaga. One if his main themes was later used in THE BEAST AND THE MAGIC SWORD. Because of the political nature of the film, some people took it as a pro-Basque statement, causing Naschy to go into hiding temporarily.
