English audio would be nice for DYS with a correct score

I wonder what cut of OUATITW it will be?

yes, and it would be nice if it were region-free. But that's something we won't know until the BRD is actually released....

hopefully, this means a Region A release isn't far behind

This is good to know. Apparently, there is also a new edition of BBC being released on that day also (with a listed running time of 168 min). Is the Mondo edition now out of print?

Here also the new DVD is listed with the same runtime. It surely will be the 175 min again. I doubt that there will be a need to release an other version in Italy

It seems that the Italian rights for most Leone films have changed.

According to the distributor's official website, the Blu-ray of DYS/Gił la Testa will have Italian and English audio.

http://www.01distribution.it/areapress/dettagli.php?id=55&sezione=Homevideo

The same site shows GBU and FAFDM as having Italian audio only.

I guess the next question is whether you can play the English audio without getting Italian subtitles, but if the only titles are for the "non udenti" then maybe they're optional.

The Ripley's brd's of FAFDM and GBU, which I own, don't either have English audio.... does that mean that this will be a re-release of basically the same brd, or is it just something to do with distribution rights that doesnt allow the brd of GBU or FAFDM to be released in Italy with English audio?

That sounds promising!

That's only often a problem with French releases; I've never come across it with an Italian release.

My first question was "Can the information be trusted?" Probably yes.

Second question  "Is the Blu-ray region locked?"  Still unknown.

Third question would be about audio, picture quality, version etc, which we won't have an answer to until after the release date.  I don't think that Italian subtitles for the hard of hearing will be a problem.

when it comes to DYS, questions 1 thru 10 are: will they get the audio right?

Probably yes, as they used the mono version for their English audio track, and not the fake 5.1. sound of the MGM release.

The runtime will be then 157 min, which means the addional last flashback is included. Even if then it is actually not a Leone approved version from 1971, cause the theatrical cut did not include that scene. But of course DYS is better with that scene.
