than promised), but I think he should not have criticise it so unjustly. It's a great flick, the work of a competent director. I think the actor did not understand what Franco tried to achieve.

When I interviewed him I was surprised at how much contempt he had for Jess Franco and even Alfred Hitchcock. I don't think he approved of the erotic content in GIRL or FRENZY and he seemed to resent the directors personally. I think because he was a writer he may have wanted to be more involved on the production end. He was also a producer and writer of plays. He didn't seem that happy acting and you can tell it if you watch his performances closely. He always seems slightly uncomfortable. But he was a professional. I think he was frustrated with his career.

I don't know where, but I've read that Wyler was not the kind of person you could get on easily with during shooting. I understand his hard feelings concerning THE GIRL FROM RIO (getting less money than promised), but I think he should not have criticise it so unjustly. It's a great flick, the work of a competent director. I think the actor did not understand what Franco tried to achieve.
Anyway, now I have a blog (in Hungarian)and I'll review THE GIRL FROM RIO next month. I'd also like to interview some Franco-related personalities (or even the Maestro himself!), so I would be most grateful if Robert helped me to succeed. Here's my blog: http://filmzenepszichedelia.blogspot.com/
