I love DJANGO KILL... it is more or less an Art Film. Just great. Superb soundtrack too....

Ok... VIVA Lil !

yes, yes... I know the story. I stopped thinking too much about those things. I too try to help releases here and there,
but they all want to run their own show (messing things up)... What else can you do... (besides maybe starting a BD label).

I know your terrific comparison-videos don't cover the color-issues, yet the IB print
so much reminds me of the GBU 35mm theatrical screenings... Nice :).

I never knew the Paramount BD is missing shots from the opening scene
included in the German 35mm version! (which I saw at least 10 times over the years in cinema's !).
I only thought from time to time "wasn't there more screen time regarding Woody Strode & the drops of water ?".
At least that thought was right :).

Long live your IB Tech print. The only real reference left it seems...

Yes, I'd have recorded it in English - the hard work (research) was done already anyway :).
I hope the ARROW releases (just recorded the SARTANA audio commentary) will
be a success, then more might follow :).

Can't wait to learn about the quality of the HD master...

Unfortunately they weren't interested in picking up my audio-commentary & supplements
from the German Blu-ray...  Maybe in England one day :).

It varies from country to country. Here in Germany a ballad is sort of a song based on a poem, also a story of a special person or event (as in THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE :) ) .
In France a lot of old dance music is labeled as "ballade", also in classical music (mainly piano, remember Richard Clayderman's "Ballade pour Adeline" ? Tortured us to no end 40 years ago. Of course the first thing I learned on the piano back then :) ).

Could be the very first film depicting that wonderful Western All'Italiana combination "Gringo/Latino/Machine Gun", which
made for great scenes in MERCENARIO, QUIEN SABE?, GIU LA TESTA ...
Good film. Mitchum in Mexico is great, also highly recommended: THE WONDERFUL COUNTRY !

For a Few Dollars More / Re: Klaus Kinski on german lobby card

I doubt that is a deleted scene... they took a lot of promo stills with Kinski (some with Eastwood), I have about six or seven from that session...

Sorry, the days are over I had the time to create "extended versions". Although SORCERER I might do all over again, this time in HD...

SCRIPT: I'm sure 90% that Sam did not write scripts before 1955 (and then only two-three reelers). RIDERS OF VENGEANCE is such
a mediocre title, it could be a 30s Monogram western, or anything for that matter. Probably a working title or something like that.
But still very interesting. What puzzles me is that my colleagues in the US never came across it anywhere (or at least did not
mention it in any of the books).

Yes, a pity.
I don't have the time really these days, other threads are also concerned...

But all these items (and many more) will be included on the animated picture galleries I just
produced for the upcoming US Blu-ray release....
