As there is no blu-ray release of Thieves of Fortune, I have opted to give a DVD review of the latest version of this DVD on the market.
Thieves of Fortune was LVC's last film released (in 1990 after his death). His role in the film is brief, and he is gone by the 18 minute mark of the film. Overall this is a pretty terrible movie, and definitely not one worthy of being his last film role.
This DVD is sold under the name Mexican Jackpot, while in the actual film the title card reads as Chameleon. In the US the film was released as Thieves of Fortune.
Unfortunately this DVD has only been available in Europe, and as such is region 2/PAL encoded (making it unplayable on most US DVD players)
Despite being a 2017 DVD release, this transfer looks to be nothing more than a poor VHS dub. My laserdisc of this film from the early 90's looked better than this!
German or English
- Trailer (looks like something they downloaded off YouTube of a television broadcast ad)
This film is really more of a curiosity for hardcore LVC fans. I would only really recommend it for completists.
- Low price
- Region 2 PAL (UK) only
