    Recently got the Nightmare Castle blu-ray, which also features Castle of Blood and Terror Creatures from the Grave, and wow, Mrs. Steele is quite amazing in HD. lol What other blu-rays of her movies are available in Region A / region free?

    Got my signed copy direct from Severin. :D

    Mario Bava's Black Sunday is probably the best place to start followed by The Long Hair of Death. These are most like the Severin titles. She doesn't have much do to in the others although I haven't seen Silent Scream or Horrible Dr. Hitchcock. She probably has more screen time in those two.

    Cronenberg's Shivers is also out on Blu-ray from Arrow but UK release. Is that region free?

    It's Region B locked, hence why I didn't include it in my post.

    Wait a minute, what?!

    Edit: I think you're confusing the 50's remake with the original, which came out 2 years before she was born. She is in the remake, but that remake isn't a part of the 39 steps criterion release....I don't think.

    The 39 Steps she's an extra in is the 1959 version which is not on Blu Ray. The VCI DVD is out of print but available on Amazon at least.

    The original pressing was Region-B locked, but there was a 2nd pressing/replacement disc issued due to missing footage that was region free. I'm not sure if current retail copies are still Region Free or not, but there are region free copies out there.

    Well then, if you order it and it's Region B you'll know to get the Region Free replacement disc. ;)

    See rxfiend, zbinks and I really helped you out there. Unlike that bum MorallySound telling you movies Steele ain't even in. o_O
