Power Struggle

In what seemed an inevitable move, control of the long-promised international film from Dog Food Productions has been wrested from its director, R. Strother. After endless delays, the news came as a surprise to few, and it now seems that the director's worst fears will be realized the film will not be released to American audiences with the original Italian dialogue intact, but in a hastily prepared, dubbed version. Strother could not be reached for comment, but did send a terse missive to the press, which we quote in full: "I don't know what you're going to see on July 27th ... but don't blame me if it's a piece of crap."
