Has anyone seen the Italian film The Witches by Clint, and if so, where can I buy it or rent it?  No one knows what I am talking about. Thanks - Donna Madison

Donna, lots of people here know what you're talking about, but if you don't happen to catch one of the rare telecasts, usually late at night on obscure cable channels, about the only way you can see it is to buy a bootleg copy from eBay.

Your post was originally in a completely unrelated thread. We've split it out and merged it with this one on the same topic.  You can always do a search before posting to see if the topic has already been discussed. Use the button on the links bar just below Clint's head at the top of the page.

It's awful and only worth seeking out for its curiosity value . If you never see it , don't worry , you're not missing much .

Here's some shots taken from the movie. The bootleg VHS tape I have is really bad quality, recorded in SLP mode I believe, so the caps aren't so clear. But since most here will probably never see this flick and perhaps a side of Eastwood you've never seen before, here they are:



HAHA!! those pics look hilarious!

The Witches will be screened here in Australia on the SBS network next Saturday night(Sunday morning)at 12:05 a.m.
I saw this last time it was screened and didn't think much of it.

I agree with you TGY  .It's pretty awful and only worth seeing for Eastwood completists .

I have tried so hard to get a copy of the Witches but it just isn't available over here.  I'd like to know your reactions to it as well please, Philo.  Thanks  ;)

I have a VHS to DVD transfer of ‘The Witches’ (acceptable quality). It is NTSC format.  I am happy to send you a copy if you pay postage.

I recently converted my DVD copy of "The Witches" from NTSC to PAL format.

No Problem Lin, happy to assist.

I just saw that The Witches is scheduled to be on the Encore Mystery Channel this Tuesday morning (June 5) at 6:45 eastern U.S. time. I'm going to set the DVR to record it.

I did remember to tape The Witches yesterday morning. From what people have said, it doesn't sound as if it's anything wonderful but I'll probably be watching it this weekend.

I started watching The Witches one day last week. I saw pretty much the whole first segment and then stopped. I'm thinking I might just find the one Clint's in, watch it, and then be done with it. ;)

It's the last segment, Christopher. And the others are eminently skippable. ;)

Haven't seen it and probably won't be able to. I'm not sure I have either of those channels.

I've now merged three threads on The Witches into one, so we won't have to  hunt so hard for discussions of this film. (I changed Dannyman's original topic title.)

I'm surprised that I seem to have neglected to post about this film when I saw it in the Morricone retrospective at NYC's Film Forum last February.

The four segments that precede Clint's (the Vittorio De Sica-directed "Una sera come le altre," or "A night like any other") range from forgettable (Visconti's "La strega bruciata viva") and two "short subjects" to excruciating (Pasolini's "La terra vista dalla luna"). Not sure where I'd class Clint's segment, if Clint weren't in it, but at best it seems like a joke that goes on too long. It's about a bored Italian housewife who wishes her American husband were more exciting, more like her dreams of America ... hey, maybe Clint got the inspiration to do Bridges from this experience. ;)

Anyway, there are a number of fantasy sequences that are imaginative visually and pretty comical (intentionally or no) dramatically, Matt had posted some stills, but they don't seem to be available any more.

Anyone else who has seen this movie, you're welcome to continue the discussion here. :)

Thanks for the links. Too bad whoever uploaded couldn't get the AR correct; it's unwatchable like that.

I watched it on there last night.  I thought it was kinda strange, I guess I'd say.  Clint was the best part about it.  He was funny in it.

And KC, what does AR stand for?
