Electronic Lover/the Spy Who Came

What passed for new-fangled electronic technology in the mid-'60s is on display in two vintage sexploitation pictures featured on this double-bill release from Something Weird Video. Both Electronic Lover and The Spy Who Came have been transferred to disc in their original full-frame aspect ratios of 1.33:1, and both films look fine on DVD. While the source print for The Spy Who Came suffers some wear at the end of reels, for the most part it's clean and looks as good as one might hope, while the elements for Electronic Lover are admirably clean, and the film's moody camerawork is well served on disc. Both movies are in English, with no multiple language options or subtitles, and the audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, retaining the original monophonic sound mixes for these movies. The low-budget sound recording for The Spy Who Came suffers a bit in this presentation, but Electronic Lover fares better, especially the enjoyably out-dated rock music score from the Fludd. Plenty of bonus materials have been appended to this disc, including four sexploitation trailers, a mid-'50s strip reel (Girl of My Dreams), a oddball burlesque short (Tel-Star Striptease), and an outdated educational short, The Philosophy of Computing. A gallery of film-oriented men's magazine artwork rounds out the package. Something Weird Video continue to be America's leading archivists of the sleazy underbelly of cinema, and this "two-fer" disc is another example of what they do so well -- folks with a taste for well-executed vintage sleaze will savor this.
