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.

I would have loved to do it Smiley.
At least I added two animated galleries I produced...

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.

37  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...)

38  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.
39  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...)

Yes. But looking 60, charming like a 26-year old and laughing like a 16-year old. Irresistible.

I spent a wonderful day with Marianne Koch in Bavaria.
She's one of my favorite people anyway, a real treasure.
She had invited me to talk about FOD, I'm editing for the next two weeks...

Thanks!

Oh boy, never saw that one before. Thank heavens.
In fact I saw the right version about 95% when I saw the film over the last 35 years. Usually
I can take it when a guy walks up 5 steps instead of 6, but this is a "moment". And great
films are made of "moments". I remember Sollima speaking for our documentary, about those
kind of people working at the wrong place, messing up art. It was sad but also funny: "...meantime in a cave,
near Neanderthal, some cretin, with limited brains..."

Not exactly. Vertically 35mm 2p (TechniScope) is about 2mm higher than 16mm. 

A 16mm frame is approx 77mm˛.
A Super 16 frame is approx. 93mm˛.
A TechniScope frame is about 208mm˛.
