I'm not so sure, 'hope for the best though, as usual...
(I don't get the "super 8" craze, there is a lot of behind the scenes
footage on Corbucci from Italian/French/German/Swiss TV,
not that hard to find - much unlike on Leone...)

It will include my 3 featurettes (so far only on the German Blu), and my audio-commentary...

They forgot to mention my feature-length doc THE DUNDEE ODYSSEY on the list of the supplements, strange...

The first Blu-ray release worldwide, KOCH Films 3-Disc release will be out in May.
It contains my new supplements and the roadshow version (SD, the print is rotten
by now and can't be restored to HD as we all know)

Happy to report that the German trailer came from this boards very own Mike Siegel. We provided it in 4K and it looks pretty nice. And every single shot in it is an alternate take, angle or deleted scene (same as the French trailer) but now its sharp as a tack. Thanks Mike!

Hugs to you Jordan, you are the only guy in the world I would have sold it to... (whywere you born? ;D )
Glad to see they finally "accepted" your input, which they did not for their "first release". Maybe
they didn't trust my opinion at that time, although I already had successfully co-produced 3 Peckinpah's
with KINO by then...

PS: 2 GLORREICHE HALUNKEN was Sergio's first title for the film as I recall. (TWO MAGNIFICENT ROGUES). Right?

Ok, but still, what is less good on the German Blu?

I do not understand that question.
I just co-produce all over the world, to a certain extent,
it is up to others to judge which release is better or worse.

(The DUNDEE HD master is always the same, the list
of each release' supplements is no secret and can easily be compared...)

Looks like there will be another DUNDEE release next year with even more "differences" to the German release...

Here's a great new definitive Peckinpah release: IMPRINT's wonderful Australian Blu-ray box for MAJOR DUNDEE, including 2 1/2 hrs of my PASSION & POETRY documentaries.

We were hacked by Asians twice and after the second time, at least a year or two ago, I couldn't log-in anymore.
I couldn't reach the nice Australian guy who launched it back then...

I just watched a German TV team visiting the epicenter in the Lombardei. It was shocking, heartbreaking, devastating to see the doctors etc. desparately trying to save lives and being discouraged and almost crying, because people are dying every hour without a way of helping them...

I have lots of friends in the UK and the US... what a terrible time to have the stupidest leaders worldwide...

It's funny that his (many) fans still adore him. Then again, not only those certain Americans are simple minded,
after the war we too heard so many over here saying "Hitler wasn't all bad!" (or Mussolini), 'even spreading again.
No matter what happened and will happen... Love, compassion etc. is out of fashion (again) these times...
(Unless it's your own son - or dog - of course...)

Wow - 'bout time. Some nice extras in there.

Yeah... could be my favorite McQueen, although his screen time is limited.
Unfortunality Criterion never responds to emails, I offered them to track down
the superb German behind the scenes TV footage... Shame.

Few critics commented on it, but I doubt it made a big difference to audiences. Back then
the youth culture movement (& market) just started and 22-year old men were regarded as "kids"
by the old folks...
