The big question is, has Faccia a Faccia been given an anamorphic transfer? The SPO version is letterboxed only....

Runtime update:

It appears the times from the press release (110, 111 & 119 min.) are the supposed theatrical running times. The slightly shorter times are the actual running times of the dvds and include 4% PAL speedup:

La Resa dei Conti 105 min. 59 sec.
Faccia a Faccia 106 min. 50 sec.
Corri, Uomo, Corri 120 min. 40 sec.

(Note that this would make CUC actually longer than the theatrical release. Huh)

Anamorphic vs. letterbox: don't know, yet.

Here we go:

the running times above are all correct! Corri, Uomo, Corri will not be longer than the theatrical release. Koch Media reportedly took a master from Blue Underground and converted it directly without PAL speedup.

Supposedly all three will have anamorphic transfers.

Now we need to know subtitling details: do all the movies have English subs, and what about the extras?

except for the hideously unpleasant theme song, performed by what sounds like the worst opera-style soprano in all of Italy

Lol, I kinda liked her (Kristy) I think she was signing it phonetically, at least it sounds that way, the title sequence and the song set me right in the mood. Wink

What was the lapse in plot logic, I'm on the edge of my seat as I type?  Cool

yeah i didnt think Big Gundown was perfect by any means but its a hugely enjoyable film with some strong performances. it has far better cinematography and settings than ur average, but i still dont think its as good as The Great Silence (which is also quite flawed), and certainly not as distinctive.

We've got a few threads on this so I wasn't sure which one to post in. But anyhow, The Big Gundown is on the Encore Westerns channel tomorrow (saturday) at 12:10 U.S. Eastern time. It seems like they show movies in cycles so you might keep a watch out for it. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm planning on watching it though, especially since I've seen Run, Man, Run.

I did get to watch this movie on Saturday. I liked it a lot. But it probably would have been nicer if I hadn't seen Run, Man, Run beforehand, since that let me know that Cuchillo was probably innocent of what he was running from in Big Gundown. But nevertheless a very fun movie. Lee Van Cleef was good in it, as usual.

I'm sure its probably been mentioned via a different thread before, but the Franco Cleef reconstruction of this film is fantastic, restoring all the deleted scenes etc.

By the way, being based in the UK where SW's on TV is a very rare thing, I'm extremely jealous of the amount of them that seem to get shown over there in the USA.

Going back to Cusser's original post, Corbett does fall for some fairly weak tricks - especially that one where Cuchillo makes him think he's been bitten by a snake.

I'll have to check it more closely in a zoom but it could be a single shot shotgun with birdshot , or a smoothbore rifle filled with birdshot, it would be more believable then guys.

After being alerted to the existance of this DVD (it can be bought here at http://www.xploitedcinema.com/dvds/dvds.asp?title=5250 )I was tempted by the release and was wondering does anyone here have it? Is the A/V of good quality?
