Yep i'm in agreement with that Firecracker.The Oates and LVC tense battle of will is terrific and its about time this got a decent dvd treatment as it is LVC's best non-Italian western. Wink

Even though LVC gets more coverage on other American westerns (released after the Italian counter-parts) I agree with the above statement.


"El Condor" is right behind this one methinks.

For those in australia, Barquero played on fox classics on Jan 5. I missed the first 30 mins but enjoyed the rest of the film. Although Forest Tucker had the better lines compared to LVC, i thought it was a good LVC movie, and has been mentioned is more of a spaghetti than an american western (filmed in colorado).

The movie is repeated on Jan 10 and i'll definitely watch the whole movie, now does anyone have a dvd burner, since this is impossible to find on dvd??

What aspect ratio did it play in, the copy I have is full matte 4:3, and 115 minutes but it looks cut in some shots & pan & scaned in some shots. It was recoded off Encore Westerns.

The movie is available on DVD (Spanish) under the title "Los forajidos de Rio Bravo". You can google that title.

http://dvd.es/dvd/Los%20forajidos%20de%20R%C3%ADo%20Bravo

Unfortunately, the DVD I have is the pan and scan 100 minute version by Jenymar in the crappiest video and audio quality one can imagine. I recieved it as a present long ago from someone with very good intentions, and that's why it has not ended in the garbage. Perhaps a longer version with better video and audio quality would be somewhat more enjoyable, but the one I have is a complete waste of time.

The copy I have is pretty good looking overall,  but I'm still not sure if its the theatrical release, there are scenes that look obviously cropped.  and there are some cuts between sequences that look to abrupt, like I mentioned its full matte 4:3,  Imdb shows it as supposed to being 1.85 : 1

One of oats few staring roles
LVC seams a little uneasy not playing a classical bad guy or a typical good guy.
LVC shoots Remey in a spiritless thankless two second duel. pity
lot of action though w/ execelent music by domonic frontere

Hopefully, it will be a much better version than the one I have.

Not sure, but it is a crappy Spanish fullscreen version titled "Los forajidos de Rio Bravo". As I mentioned in another thread, the only reason I keep it is because my brother gave it to me as a present.

Amazon.co.uk lists the new R2 DVD with a runtime of 105 minutes. If that includes PAL speed-up, then the film is heavily cut. No mention is made of the AR, but this series has been pretty good about preserving OAR. We'll have to see. Here's the page at amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Barquero-DVD-Lee-Van-Cleef/dp/B001TJKVKU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1238748668&sr=1-1

Mine is full matte also and in English but I've read opinions that it was shot that way, its source was a satellite broadcast, but it looks cropped and cut in a few scenes, though it is a fairly nice transfer.
