    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?

    The 'Golden Head' is now available for pre-order

    The film was a massive commercial flop.
    This is great. Thanks for sharing!

    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

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