Arrow Video

Available for the first time on Blu-ray, Night of the Living Dead director George A. Romero's second feature film, There's Always Vanilla - a biting satire of early '70s American society and an unjustly overlooked entry in the late director's filmography. When young drifter Chris meets beautiful model Lynn by a chance occurrence, the pair hit it off and a romantic relationship ensues. But with their wildly contrasting outlooks on life, it soon becomes clear that the coupling is doomed from the outset. Starring Judith Streiner (born Judith Ridley) from Night of the Living Dead and Ray Laine, who would go on to appear in Romero's next film, Season of the Witch, There's Always Vanilla is a unique entry in the director's canon and one that's ripe for reappraisal.

Romero's second film shows solid viewing

Just purchased the three Romero titles now offered through Arrow. I have never seen this second entry of Romero's catalog, and I found it a surprisingly good feature despite all the criticism, even by Romero himself. With an engaging lead performance by Raymond Laine, the film has a charming and easygoing quality and is a great historical look at the Pittsburgh area in the early seventies. A second rock-solid lead by Richard Ricci really packs a punch - just a shame that him and Laine never shared a scene together. And co-star Judith Streamer provides a very sensitive and charming presence to a film that deserves much more credit in the history of Romero's works. An excellent package with a lot of additional production extras this is a early Romero feature that should have a proper place in your viewing library.
