Only logical, business-wise, the US rights now recently being acquired by an American company...

Not on this release. A '69 dubbing doesn't exist anyway...

No, just a little bonus gift. Before that Blu-ray was announced, some friends at another forum were so tired
of those old DVD's that we all threw in some dineros and we scanned my 35mm print, just for us...

Now it is just interesting to compare the look of the two masters - the new one for the Blu-ray,
and my 1969 print, which represents the look the film had when it played in theaters. Because
you almost never get the old 35mm theatrical-print-look on modern HD masters.
Just a gag... (the print isn't very good: scratches and missing/damaged scenes. But the colors
are still all there.). It has slightly more picture information - but only due to the fact that I masked
my Apple ProRes to achieve maximum image information (don't caring if unwanted stuff pops up
occasionally at the image border area...)

If you can play European Blu-ray's, I might have some copies left here...

Or mine with 110 minutes supplements Smiley.

Then again, why try to persuade someone to like Peckinpah if it's not his bag?

Well, the master came from Disney and to me it looks very good.
It IS A MIRACLE anyway that the film is out on Blu now.
I tried for many years through befriended labels, to no avail.
Disney is very difficult.

I'm very grateful for that release.

Thanks Dave, 'appreciate it!

Regarding the master: I thought it was great when I made the documentary (I don't have the final Blu-ray here yet...).
And I saw a beautiful (new) 35mm print in LA years that looked about the same. Rich Lucien Ballard - colors...
Maybe your TV-set needs adjustment?

Also, when one sees the DVD beaver screen shots, they look fine to me. It was filmed in the summer anyway, people aren't
that pale for that reason maybe Smiley.

Well to rate that one, one must know a little bit about how it came together.
Those who care can guess what it could have been if Peckinpah could have
directed and edit it the way he wanted.
O'Hara's brother produced it to cash in on THE PARENT TRAP, a major hit in 1960.
Brian Keith agreed only to do it if Peckinpah would direct - he loved the marvelous
THE WESTERNER he just did with Sam. In fact his character in DEADLY is almost
a follow up. Unfortunately The Fitzsimmons siblings di d not allow Sam (a very successful
writer by that time) to enhance the lousy script.
The even altered his final cut. For instance the Keith character shot Cochran in cold
blood at the end. Not in Fitzsimmons version...

Can't believe people really find a masterpiece in this one. I like the story a lot
but the pace destroys everything. And then I have to defend Antonioni to certain people Smiley.

Sure, great design, visuals, everything, great gags (Soylent Green, USSR, Pan-Am,
VW beetle, Peugot, Elvis etc.)... But I wouldn't want
to see it again without getting paid for it. Why do so many mediocre directors
think they are David Lean or Kubrick?
With 117 minutes it would have been a very good Sci-Fi film.
25  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: Il mercenario aka The Mercenary/A Professional Gun (1968) on: October 25, 2017, 03:37:09 PM
I would have loved to do it Smiley.
At least I added two animated galleries I produced...
26  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Polanski in jail / shame on Switzerland on: October 25, 2017, 10:08:58 AM
Well anybody who knows a little bit about the Polanski case knows that the
so-called "law" in LA at the time (i.e. a certain judge) of his "trial" was worth even less
than the current "president" of the USA.
Anybody with a brain attached to the body would have fled the country.

27  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: The Great Silence aka Il grande silenzio (1968) on: October 23, 2017, 04:23:12 PM
No, first time I work with that label. Don't know them really...

I suppose the 4K is not available yet & expensive as well (if it's available at all that is...)

28  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: The Great Silence aka Il grande silenzio (1968) on: October 23, 2017, 01:58:30 AM
Releases in other countries from the same 4k restoration source are expected:



I'm working on that one right now Smiley.
29  Films of Sergio Leone / A Fistful of Dollars / Re: New Kino Lorber FOD DVD/BRD on: October 07, 2017, 08:50:42 AM
I always put in my 2 cents, but the only solution would be founding a label with and some otheers and do it ourselves...

When I watch the film, I always watch the German BD which is pretty good.
When I watch GBU I watch the privately made BD, which has the right sound & color.
I need a solution for GIU LA TESTA though, both BD's stink.

Well I didn't buy it, but I have it of course
since I worked on it. Right now I'm working
on the new FISTFUL release (supplements,
I have nothing to do with the presentation
of the films...)
