Blueberry, not me, lol,  go to:

 http://www.sartana.homestead.com/index.html

Then surf back to June 29th and you will find the threads you are looking for.

I Think it was based on the recent Spanish DVD release, and was put together from bits and pieces of english diologue supplied from various VHS recordindgs of SW fans around the world. It is quite an accomplishment if you think about it.

Its a shame that it is not officially released, but you Blueberry being in Europe, would have a better acccess to the Spanish DVD, no?

Ok, I just got done watching my pristine copy of "La Resa Di Conti" (The Big Gundown) what a gorgeous film and what a great Morricone score.

I haven't seen this movie for over 30 years and now to actually own a restoration of it is beyond my wildest dreams. Its the longest version that is available and if I had to mention any downside to it it is the lack of english sountrack for a couple of sequences. It is a little reminder that it is a Spaghetti Western after all (english subtitles provide a bridge between the english audio sections) .

A bigger restoration budget and a voice actor for Van Cleef and some of the other characters would be all it would take to make this complete. But its well worth the money and I suggest you all get yourselves this essential Van Cleef western. The cinnematography of Carlo Carlini is wonderful and you will be reminded of Leone and Tonnio Delli Colli.

The interaction between Cuchillo and Corbet will make you think of Blondie and Tuco.

All in all its a top notch restoration job that was long in comming by Franco Cleef Productions and all I can say is a big heartfelt  thanks.

Get it guys & gals we may never get as complete as restoration as this.

I'm afraid I'm still too dense to figure out how to purchase it. Do I simply email "Franco"?

You know I'm still basking in the afterglow of this DVD.  Its really right up there very close to Leone as far as SW's go.

I forgotbafter 30 years how good it was, I remember it was a good movie but now through the lenz of time and all the crap that followed it is really a top shelf effort and it will not diassapoint you.

It has it all, a funny cat and mouse theme with Corbet and Cuchillo that sort of turns the tables on the Tuco/Blondie relationship, in Gundown the Peon has the upper hand.

Just get it for collector purposes even if an official release comes out some where down the road this is a gem. The Morricone score ranks up there with his best, the cinematography is beautiful, I can't stress this enough that you won't be disapointed.

I'm now on a quest for the rest of Sergio Sollimas westerns, lol.

No seriously its good, the chase through the canefields and into the desert at the end play like Tucos Ecstacy of Gold run in the cemetary and the two standoff's at the end are good.

Sollima in this film is much more like Leone than Corbuchi. Make it a part of your collection this one is worthy and needs the full SE treatment.

Wow , must be to each his own as I enjoyed The Great Silence as much as The Big Gundown. These are the best 2 non Leones I have come across.

You know on the IMDb I checked for LVC and for Morricone and it lists The Big Gundown as comming before GBU this is interesting in a lot of respects, since I've read reviews that TBG was like a copy (credits style and music style) to GBU. Yhis would put a different slant on things.

I just noticed that myself. I always thought gbu was first.  This film deserves a much higher rating on imdb, it would definitely rise with a mainstream widescreen r1 dvd release. Milian and LVC were both great in their roles and morricone was never better. Some of Sollimas images from the film (I wont spoil them for those who havent seen it) are classic and would make for awesome screen captures!
