Just got the DVD's of "Lucky Lady" and "Royal Flash", both shot by Geoffrey Unsworth around the same period. I am halfway through "Royal Flash" but what's odd is that the opening scenes are classic Unsworth -- smoke, fog filters, even a net on the lens -- but by the time they get to the German locations, it's all pretty clean-looking, though it looks like a very light net may still be on the camera, but no smoke or fog filters... Did Unsworth not go to Germany? I see Paul Wilson listed as 2nd Unit DP, did he do those scenes? Or was Unsworth asked to pull back all the diffusion after the critical reaction to "Lucky Lady"?
Royal Flash (1975)
