I'm a big Leone fan, too, so you may want to steer clear of his work.

From what I understand, they don't have access to it yet but they're trying to get it. Obviously they don't want to promise what they can't be sure they'll get. So, we'll have to see.

From Arrow's Facebook page:

We are looking into the French track, it's not within our rights presently but we're doing all we can to get it.

I just received an e-mail from them to the same effect:

In relation to the French soundtrack, we are looking into acquiring the rights to this. It is not within our right presently but I can assure you that we are doing everything we can to try and secure it.

I hadn't realized Leone directed one scene.

This has become one of my favorite Westerns almost on par with Leone's best
With every viewing it ranks higher for me.
It's close to the top now thanks to the Arrow BD.

Between the beautiful Spanish guitar and Hossein's brilliant sombre performance this film has a quiet, poetic beauty unmatched by any other Western.
His performance is similar to the Man With No Name but with an added vulnerability.
It could even be argued he was a little depressed.
I like that we don't know the full relationship between the 3 characters. (I hope I didn't just miss it)

The main theme song works perfectly (for me Smiley) as the fanfare music it is.
It kinda reminds me of the theme in 3:00 TO YUMA
It was written by his father and every time it appears I get the chills and realize Hossein "gets" Leone like no other.
I can't think of a better made tribute in any Art-form. (I dislike Tarantino)
The dinner scene, directed by Leone himself, also stands out as a high-lite among all Westerns.

This film is a great example of a grower.

Generally actors should probably not try directing and directors should probably not try to act. There are of course some very notable exceptions to this rule - Orson Welles is probably the most famous. Robert Hossein should certainly be included on this list too. I only wish he had directed anywhere near as many films as he has acted in.

I actually wish I could see his other films. They are barely released and hard to find.

I think everybody should try whatever they want. Artists (in a broad meaning) staying within their comfort zone is the most boring thing mankind ever created (maybe I'm overstating my point, let's say second most boring right after Argo).
