so does this new BRD have all the footage on the Franco Cleef version?

The Italian version is complete.
The English language version has 10 minutes missing.
The FC version is complete with app. 3 minutes of footage in Italian.

ps the extras are fantastic! worth getting for the interviews with Solima & Donati!

I remember being seriously upset by the Columbia version removing the great shot of Cuchillo crouching down in the cane field sequence as the camera then pulls up and over him to reveal the vastness of the cane fields and his pursuers.


It is   NOT there!!!!!!!!! Cry

so if I already have the Franco Cleef dvd, then there's no reason (other than image/audio quality) for me to get any of the new brd's?

U.S. residents should wait until the B&N sale (beginning 17 Dec.) before purchasing. You will save 40%. You may have to special order it for store delivery if your store doesn't normally carry it. Of course, you can get it online, but make sure to purchase it during the sale period.

That is up to you pardner.

There are three long interviews as part of the extras (Donati, Milian, Solima) that are fantastic.
The Blu-Ray & dvd versions look fantastic  (bettr than the FC)
there is a soundtrack cd and the Italian version.

An embarassement of riches no matter what you decide!

I went to B&N to see if they'd gotten it in and, as I expected, they hadn't. They were, of course, glad to order it for me. It should arrive by Monday, the day before the sale begins. I'll go in Tuesday and act pleasantly surprised when they knock off 40% before giving me my 10% membership discount.

Amazon.com is now listing the set for US$ 24.94, almost as cheap as B&N will be selling it next Tuesday.

so the final showdown (the whole chase and shootout sequence) is identical on the Italian BRD and the Franco Cleef dvd?

The B&N sale doesn't include The Big Gundown! What a bunch of communists! OK, now we know; better to go with Amazon on this.

the video is  the same.
FC remixed the sound in stereo which makes a big difference!

the review makes a major error: the restored scenes do have English dialog.
to summarize:
Columbia?PEA prepared a 95 minute English language version of the film:
-USA 3 scenes cut
- Canada 1 scene cut (monastery- 2 parts)
- Australia 1 scene cut (rosita)
