That's a reproduction postcard depicting the late 70s/early 1980s (2nd or 3rd) French re-release movie poster:

I think if someone was interested, they could do have done their own homework  :). It was wildly promoted... Please, don't make me
responsible for people's shopping lists  ;D.

Not sure there was any interest here anyway.

By the way, it is already out of print. There are still online dealers
who have some left, but who knows for how long.
As for other countries releasing my Osterman package, it looks
rather bad right now (complicated rights situation, Osterman was an Indie production)

nice podcast about the release:

True, there isn't a director's cut. (and certainly not the 103 minute version, which made Peckinpah sue the studio!)

The preview version is the closest. But it wasn't fine tuned and also included some alternate takes
that probably would have been altered by him.
The 2005 cut unfortunately has some deliberate editing choices which are hard to accept (including some sloppy misttakes)

Would you be interested in it being shown at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring, Maryland just outside of Washington DC? I used to know someone there and could shoot them an email on the off chance ?

To quote Lyle Gorch: Why not?

Go tell the cinemateque... I don't know anybody there  ::).
Maybe they want the OSTERMAN director's cut...

Good chance for German journalists to sneak away and report off-set.
(faszinating footage, somewhere between Hitler-Germany/ Staklin & North Korea...).

And with 6 Gold Medals we're doing fine so far...

Farewell Peter, one of cinema's biggest voice is gone 😔. I always felt a strong connection to writers, film historians who became filmmakers. Like Bogdanovic, the guys of Cahier Du Cinema or Cameron Crowe. In 2003 I discussed a film project with him, after PASSION & POETRY I wanted to make a film called MAVERICK FILMMAKERS. I already had contact with Leni Riefenstahl and Peter liked my idea to include him sort of representing Orson Welles, showing me around LA and other places. Also Ford, Hawks & Welles are among my Top 10 film makers... I skipped the project after Riefenstahl died. Probably it was better that way, but I missed working with Peter. TARGETS is still one of the best low low-budget film debuts ever...

Sometimes I do stuff that only makes sense to me ;D.

The japanische war die letzte V? bisher, alle anderen sind ja schon drau?en... Au?erdem wei? das bisher ja kaum jemand...

Again, the Director's Cut I just finished working on is Sam's Final Cut. The preview cut is a preview cut. He was dismissed
and made his changes nevertheless - but nobody ever saw his Final Cut. Until now. His editor made a negative for Sam
with all the changes after the preview and then Sam stored the negative (lost by now...). His friend Don made
a print, using his own money. The only print in the world. I have it now...

CONVOY: there are some nice moments. I do not have the time to write a lot here, I work 50 hrs a week
on Peckinpah, right until x-mas...  RETRO PREVIEW:

(JAP 15) 1:35:58    To hell with?em  (7:02)
After the dramatic dialogue beween Dirty Lyle and the Rubber Duck in the destroyed Alvarez? jail, the Duck is suddenly smiling, checking out the damage: "To hell with them if they can?t take a joke, right?". A good moment.

(JAP 16)  1:37:40    Road songs  (1:58:10)
The longest 'missing' sequence: on their way to Mexico, the truckers are singing songs. It starts with a laid-over verse from Al Martino?s song 'Spanish Eyes', then we hear and see Kristofferson singing a weird version of 'La Adelita', that famous song from the Mexican revolution! Next comes Madge Sinclair performing 'I don?t know why I love you like I do', a 1940?s classic most prominently recorded by Frank Sinatra and, later, Dean Martin. Everybody is in great spirits and Melissa takes pictures of Rubber Duck. The fourth song we hear is the famous 1939 hit 'South of the Border'. The sequence ends with everybody singing all over the place and a trucker laughing: "Oh, what an experience!". (in the final cut we only hear the 'Jesus freaks', in reality Kristofferson?s band, singing 'Shall we gather at the river'.)

Nice. I?ll look out for it.

It?s a shame that Japanese Blu-ray is totally OOP. I can?t even find anyone selling used copies. Presumably it was a very limited print run? Having said that, does the 5 minutes add anything of real worth? Or will I have to wait to see the Cinema Retro article for an answer to that?

Wait, you mean the one on the old DVD is not the same as the cut you received? How are they different?

Yes, 5 Min.
I wrote a long piece about it (and OSTERMAN) for one of the next CINEMA RETRO issues...

PS: Sam's OSTERMAN director's Cut is NOT the preview cut (Videotape / old DVD).

CONVOY was released two or three years ago in JAPAN. I co-produced for KING RECORD (Cross Of Iron too):
