  • Scent of Mystery 1960

    I just finished reading a Peter Lorre mini biography in "Cursed Horror Stars" & it mention the British film "Scent of Mystery"aka "Holiday in Spain" (1960)!
    It was directed by Jack Cardiff & apparently it was the first feature film to use "smell o vision"!
    Also it apparently plugged the actual brand of shoe polish that was used in scenes of the film.
    Has anybody seen this? Did anybody here see it at the Cinema when first released?

    I haven't seen this myself, but it has been restored and issued on Blu Ray/DVD in the USA.....

      It was screened at The National Science and Media Museum "Widescreen Weekend" few years ago. Smells included!

        I'm a contributor to the Cinerama website incinerama.com. Although my association is mainly my advert archive from the 1970s, my colleagues on there have done this appreciation

            Any sign of the 'Golden Head' on DVD - I'm interested because of the MGM British connection.

              It was remastered a few years ago, but no sign of a dvd/Blu-Ray release.

              The film was a massive commercial flop.
