Paradise for Phoebe Cates Fans

I received the new Paradise DVD featuring Phoebe Cates a couple of months ago and it is a huge improvement over the previous releases. Here are the main differences:

1. The picture is sharper and the colours are more vibrant. A lot more detail can be seen; especially during dark scenes like the one with Phoebe stripping at the beach.
2. The DVD is uncensored. That means Willie Aames’ penis is not blurred out during the lengthy skinny dipping scene.
3. Last but not least, the DVD is full frame open matte with a lot more picture at the top and bottom of the frame and a little bit more on the sides too. The two love scenes are pan and scan however. This was probably done because Phoebe used a body double for these nude scenes.

Here are some comparison caps. The top pic is from the new DVD and the bottom pic is from the old DVD.

  1. Thanx for the comparison shots. censorship never makes sense, especially in films like this one. just what market are they trying to grab with such ludicrous tactics, anyway?

    thank god someone had the good sense to release the film as it was always meant to be. 🙂

  2. I don’t believe any nude scene uses a body double. The love sequence shows most of her face. I compared her facial and other features in the panned scan sequences they match Phoebe exactly.

  3. hello, have been quite discouraged by the current offers so far on amazon due to edited/censored versions of this film.
    can you tell me how or where the PARADISE version displayed on your site can be obtained?

    thanks!

  4. Nice blog and all but… you forgot to mention where you got the DVD. A link or maybe a image of the DVD cover or both… eternally thankful in advance.

  5. After some thought, i’m thinking it’s the Region 2 & 4 version that is referred to here. Can’t understand why the blogger never listed that.. ?????
