Great ad for the Turnpike Drive-in showing a pair of triple-features for different weeks of November, 1961. PARIS BLUES (1961) was a drama based in the jazz world, featuring a Duke Ellington score; no DVD release. ROSEMARY was the Films Around the World release of the West German post-war critique Das Mädchen Rosemarie (1958); no DVD as of yet. THE TARNISHED ANGELS (1958) was a Douglas Sirk adaptation of a William Faulkner novel; no DVD. THE VIRGIN SPRING (Bergman's Jungfrukällan, 1960) was said to be the inspiration for THE LAST HOUSE IN THE LEFT. THE LAST PARADISE was the United Artists release of the Italian documentary L'Ultimo paradiso (1957), focused on the people of the South Pacific; it seems to have gotten an Italian VHS release, but that's it. VIRGIN ISLAND (1958) was a British comedy with John Cassavetes and Sidney Poitier; can't find evidence of an official release, but it's available as a grey market title.
