The Chastity Belt isn’t consistently funny but did have a few amusing moments, though it did get a few extra points just for the cover which I still continue to chuckle at.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


The Chastity Belt focuses on two headstrong characters: Gerrando (TONY CURTIS), a stubborn feudal lord determined to bend a woman to his will and Boccadoro (MONICA VITTI), a spitfire who wants to bestow her ample favors out of love, not obedience. Gerrando, recently knighted, is ready to enjoy his new castle, increased wealth and a new bride when he’s summoned back to the Crusades on his wedding night. Entrusting his bride’s honor to no-one – least of all herself – Gerrando outfits her with a chastity belt and sets out for the Holy Land. Boccadoro promptly pursues, not for love but for the elusive key to her chastity belt.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


No features were included.

 

VIDEO – 3.5/5, AUDIO – 3.0/5


The Chastity Belt marks its debut, at least in North America, on DVD through the Warner Archive MOD program and is presented in its original 16×9 enhanced widescreen and although it’s far from perfect with some modest film damage (mainly dust marks and a few scratches), the colors still aren’t too bad.

The Dolby Digital Mono track is serviceable providing good dialogue levels but is limited for some of the more medieval action scenes.

OVERALL – 2.75/5


Overall, The Chastity Belt isn’t consistently funny but did have a few amusing moments, though it did get a few extra points just for the cover which I still continue to chuckle at. The DVD-R release from Warner offers up fine video/audio transfers but no bonus material.
