EDIT: Took a scan thru the first disc and closest at LF. Ok, it is a bit rough looking because it came from a release print, it seems. There is some good detail from what I saw, but there is a fair amount of rougher looking grain. Sound seems alright. Extras include a poster/image gallery, a tv spot and a trailer for LF. Perhaps that mysterious German company will get off their ass now and release a version sourced from Welles' materials (used for that tv broadcast).

The total running time for this composite is 97 minutes 37 seconds, and to my eyes, it appears that
everything is there. I checked it against the following prints:
The Swedish/U.S. composite from European Trash Cinema
The German TV print broadcast a couple of years ago
The German/Swedish composite issued by ZDD Visual Media
The U.S./German/Swedish composite released by Shout Factory
What makes this particular assembly unique is that it relies very little on footage from the Swedish
Esselte Video release to make itself complete. Instead, this print uses the Shout Factory "Longer International Cut" as
its base, and then fills in the footage missing from the Shout Factory print with footage from three
alternate sources: the German television broadcast from a few years ago, an Italian television
broadcast of unknown vintage, and most interestingly, a different widescreen English language print of
unknown origin. These three sources replace most of the footage that earlier compositors used from
the Swedish release. In fact, there are only about 26 seconds remaining of the Swedish footage in this
new composite. Of course, the footage from the Shout Factory disc looks the best, but the footage from
the other three sources is a definite improvement on the multi-generational Swedish footage that is
soft and bluish, stretched to simulate widescreen and littered with hard-coded subtitles.
This new composite is complete, but it is not quite definitive if you are an English speaker. There
are four segments (totaling roughly 1 minute and 24 seconds) of Italian dialogue that remain
unsubtitled and undubbed in English.
8:38-9:29 (51 seconds) Baron Frankenstein repeats his often told story about telling off his college
professors, ending with the English line "but you have heard this story many times before".
47:42-48:02 (20 seconds) Lynch has to get out of bed and stumble to the door of his shack to admit
1:21:47-1:21:56 (9 seconds) Tania urges Charles/Thomas to hang on for one more jolt from her electric
1:23:07-1:23:11 (4 seconds) A very brief snippet of Julia talking to Harris in his office.
If you want to hear any of this dialogue in English, then you'll need to hang on to whatever print you
may have that contains the Swedish footage for these scenes.
Still, I believe this new composite offers a marked improvement in overall quality from previous
assemblies. If someone could take those four scenes that were left in Italian and overdub them with
the English track from the Swedish print (or subtitle them), then we would have a LADY FRANKENSTEIN
that is both complete and totally English friendly.
