Just bought it here: http://www.dvdpacific.com/item.asp?ID=43355

It costs three bucks, and you get a Lee Van Cleef western with it. I already have God's Gun, but the double dvd was cheaper than buying A Professional Gun alone.

Thanks for that link Nobody, I just got it there too. Even with the shipping cost to UK ($6) it's still dirt cheap for two movies.

In Japan theres a Stingray/TOHO DVD  of The Mercanery (AKA Professional Gun) its in letterbox. wonderful picture & soundtrack. You get little calendar with the dvd a hologram of the original movie poster.

Corbucci really got hooked on burning sunsets in that movie they pop up everywhere behind Polak. The duel in the bullring is great. The Mexican army attack on the bandit town. cannons, Even a bomber plane.
 It was the first film where he started to refine his work. out where the shacky zooms, a more light hearted film.

This and Companeros are the kinda of films which look like the had a great laugh just making them.

Stingray do UA/MGM/Grimbaidi titles in the East. You can get Corbucci's Navajo Joe (starring a very young Burt Renoylds, Hills Run Red. Sataba flicks etc. Also reponsible for those Ge La Testa TNT wooden boxsets that cropped up on ebay about a year ago. I personally waiting for what else they can obtain.

Really makes me wonder why these prints arn't available in the west being offical MGM products. Proberly region licences compilcations.  Undecided

Django, Great Silence, Mercenary, Companeros, Navajo Joe and Hellbenders seem to be the most popular Corbucci films, but I never hear many discussions about Johnny Oro, Sonny and Jed, and I've definately never heard anything at all about The Specialist around these parts.

How would you say those lesser known westerns stand up to his most popular ones, like the other ones mentioned above?

I've heard good things about both The Specialist and Sonny & Jed, but you know how that sometimes goes, rabid fans that accept anything regardless of quality etc., etc.

The Specialist stars Johnny Halliday a french pop star at the time, I've heard it refered to as a Hippy Western whatever that means.







Sonny & Jed is supposed to be good It's got Tomas Milian so it can't be all bad right?, but again never got a definitive review of it:

The only Corbucci westerns I've seen are Django, The Great Silence, Companeros, and Navajo Joe. I'd love to see more of his westerns.

Mainly because i like Milian and Susan George the only Corbucci film left that i haven't seen which i'm very keen to rectify is Sonny and Jed.
We mustn't forget the very enjoyable third sw in Corbucci's Revolution trilogy What Am I Doing In The Middle Of A Revolution? which was discussed in the following link:-

too true. This was the last Corbucci film I ever heard about. I remember viewing the poster on some Spag site and then I saw
Regia(directed) Sergio Corbucci. My eyes popped out of my sockets and I did a back flip when I found out that info.

That was like 8 months ago...
