Here's the final word:
You want the US Theatrical cut so you can hear the 3 principals speaking English in the dub they laid down in the fall of 1967.

You want the Italian dub so you can watch the "extended cut" in the only way it was meant to be seen by Leone.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Which is everything in the extended cut minus the grotto scene? It would be nice if they could provide a seamless branching release so we could pick and choose...

Any word on region coding?

Leone 66 wanted the grotto scene in, or it would never have appeared in the Roman premiere. Leone 67 wanted it out. We should be able to honor the intentions of both creative geniuses. I agree that seamless branching would have provided us with the definitive release.

I think Kino Lorber's releases are region free.

That's a far more balanced opinion than the one you had regarding the reinstatement of the scenes Visconti removed after the Cannes premiere of "The Leopard":

Those scenes are not only weak, they actually detract from the work as a whole. The director was wise to excise them. Restoring them is actually a betrayal of Visconti's art. Of course, there is always money to be made on idiots who can be lured by the idea that "bigger is better," so longer cuts will continue to appear.

Uh, do I really have to point out the difference between a work by Leone and one by Visconti? On this board? Really?

Were you actually wondering if a release from a US publisher was going to be compatible with US machines? Really?

Well in the context of the above, I am curious. Otherwise, I'm good  :)

I have do not know where Kino Lorber is based :o

Given that "Kino" means "cinema" in German and several East European languages makes your assumption (at least I assume that was the case) that they aren't US-based not unreasonable.

I'm not very familiar with that company. I had previously heard "Kino Lorber" discussed once or twice in regard to DVD/BRD, but I don't really know much about them. Add to that the fact that mike siegel, a German, brought the news about this release, and yeah, I was unsure if it was a European or USA release.

Hearing that it is a USA release is good news for me.  And if the disc is region-free, that's good news for all you Europeans as well  :)
