Erwin C. Dietrich (born October 4, 1930 in St. Gallen) is a Swiss film producer and director. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erwin_C._Dietrich [Nov 2005]

From 1975 to 1977 he collaborated with Jess Franco on a number of European exploitation features, mainly in the "women in prison" genre.

[F]ranco embarked on a series of productions for Swiss producer Erwin C Dietrich. Entries like Jack the Ripper (1976) and Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun (1977) may have lacked the weirdness of their immediate predecessors, but compensated with superior production values and greater accessibility, while the Romay-starring Doriana Grey (1976) showcases the director's ability to use the pornographic form in a distinct, idiosyncratic way. --K H Brown via http://www.kinocite.co.uk/14/1485.php [Nov 2005]
