De Angelis, Roberto Nicolosi, Carlo Rustichelli, Angelo F. Lavagnino, Gianni Ferrio, Carlo Savina, Pino Donaggio,

Digitmovies 100 is the Italian Police Deluxe 3 CD Box, containing La Mano Spietata Della Legge
(aka “The Bloody Hands of the Law”), a hyperviolent police story movie directed in 1973 by Mario Gariazzo
(Biella,1930 – Rome, 2002), with two of the best international actors such as Philippe Leroy (a police
commissioner) and Klaus Kinski ( a ferocious killer). The music is by Stelvio Cipriani. The second score is
director of famous Giallos ("Spasmo", "Gatti rossi in un labirinto di vetro") and Police Movies ("Milano Odia:
la polizia non può sparare","La banda del gobbo"). Bruno Nicolai is the composer. And finally the third score is
Il Grande Racket. Prolific director Enzo G.Castellari, best known for his Westerns (“Keoma”) and for Police
Movies (“La polizia incrimina, la legge assolve”), demonstrates with his movie that he is one of the few
Italian directors who is capable of doing action movies with professionalism and sensibility.
The brothers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis wrote the score.
Digitmovies 101 is the seventh volume of the anthological series dedicated to the original soundtracks of
the Italian Peplum releasing for the first time the complete original motion picture soundtrack by
Jacques Tourneur and Bruno Vailati (for the underwater sequences) with special effects ande photography
by the great Mario Bava. The movie stars the mighty Steve Reeves as Philippides, just winner at the
Olympic Games of 490 B.C. He comes to defend his country against the invasion of the Persian and against
some Athens betrayers.
Digitmovies 102 is a de-luxe CD edition of the complete original motion picture soundtrack of
featuring a very lovely music score by Ennio Morricone. The third chapter of “Il vizietto” tells the new and
always funny adventures of the homosexual couple of Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (Michel Serrault).
For the first time on CD is Digitmovies 103, the complete full stereo original motion picture score composed
and conducted by Stelvio Cipriani for the 1969 movie Femina Ridens (aka “The Laughing Woman”), directed
by Piero Schivazappa and starring Philippe Leroy, Dagmar Lassander and Lorenza Guerrieri.
The movie tells with grotesque tones the story of Doctor Sayer (Philippe Leroy), director of a philanthropic
institute. A childhood trauma makes his life uncomfortable: he has a recurrent fear of being killed by a
woman during a sexual act in a similar way as the scorpion female kills the male.
And finally Digitmovies 104. After “La ragazzina”, director Mario Imperoli once again confirms the artistic
relationship with actress Gloria Guida and with composer Nico Fidenco with Blue Jeans (1975), an erotic
film with dramatic implications,. In this movie Gloria Guida plays the role of Daniela, a seventeen year old
prostitute, who, while working on the streets uses the nickname Blue Jeans. After being arrested the
girl claims to be the daughter of Dr. Carlo Anselmi (Paolo Carlini), a rich restorer, long separated from the
supposed mother of Daniela.
