Back in this post I had wondered about the upcoming release of the Eurocine film CECILIA. That title is a splice job using footage from Jess Franco’s film Aberraciones Sexuales de una mujer casada and new footage shot by Claude Plaut (which is a pseudonym for Olivier Mathot, that name itself a pseudonym for Claude Plaud!). It does appear this is the cut and paste job, which I’m actually very excited for. What I found interesting was the first review I’ve located on the title over at the wonderful 10,000 Bullets site. Check it out… the film runs about 10 to 15 minutes to long and features scenes that are vintage Franco. Sounds like the standard cut and paste job from Eurocine. However, maybe I’m just warped, but I love to see these paste up variants, because not only does it get some of Eurocine’s charm popped on top, but the Franco footage is highlighted as being BETTER than the rest of the footage.
To add to the Eurocine Art Archive, here are the two faces of Cecilia!
