According to that, looks as if the final flashback will be contained in a featurette, not the main feature. Bummer.

That's not necessarily so, but going by the running time (I saw it posted somewhere else, I can't remember where), we won't be getting the longer flashback. I have seen the 150-minute version, and that contains the shorter final flashback.

Ah right. Cos I think the old English dvd is 147 or 148 minutes, something like that.

I'd really like to read about the Region 1 DVDs too. So far, A Fistful of Dynamite is the only one I'm planning on getting unless the other two have really great features and I can find them really cheap. I've never seen A Fistful of Dynamite yet, so that's part of the reason why I'm planning on getting it.

Who cares about Region 1??

As for not seeing FODy before then I can say you're in for a treat.  I place it ahead of the two dollar movies and OUTIA and just behind the other two.

Ooh I've never heard of that place.

What are the nationalities of users of this site?  Can you get them from your webstats?

It feels there are more Europeans than from the US.  I suppose we are talking about Eurpean films here, but they do star some of Americas biggest (semi)-modern icons.

It would seem that there would be more Europeans on the site, but I don't have stats to show that.

But there are a few people in the North American area who'd be interested in Region 1 DVDs.

I knew that - I was only winding my American brethren up.

I do a site for a blues music venue I promote and have access to all sorts of wierd and wonderful statistics that make little sense unless you have a phd in computers but at the bottom of each set of monthly stats I get a nice colourful pie chart telling me where people are viewing the site from.  Half our web visitors are from the US but I'd rather they came over, paid some coin and watched some acts.

This is going a bit off topic here so I'll finish by saying that I hope it's the long version with the extended flashback sequence at the end.

And some of the people who don't.

Why Region 1 over Region 2?

1. They tend to have original mono soundtracks. Something the Region 2 copies don't have, because normally European MGM DVDs are filled to the gills with every other speaking language. And not the original italian, ironicily.
*GBU special edition in 2004 Region 1 had the original italian mono soundtrack. Region 2 nothing.
*Same want with OUATITW in 2003 Region 1 had two stereo options. Region 2 one.

2. Region 1: GBU special edition (2004) presentation. and this is was standard price, nothing special. A beautiful small matt finish boxset, includes Poster postcards, Booklet.
Region 2: came like any other DVD bit of folded over grey plastic. And worked out more expensive than the one above.

Well i'm in the UK (or Europe) and waiting to see what the Region 1 can offer.

However one drawback between Region releases is the version that they release, occasionally a Region 1 release will be the cut version without the scenes that were not dubbed in english. Like TBG, 90 minutes vs 110 or so.

I find, especially with SWs and stuff continental R2 dvds are usually the best e.g. one from France or Italy. Usually the least cut and they tend to have a few good extras even for cheaply produced stuff.

No i agree with both you guys. Don't get me wrong. My thoughts are just based on MGM & Paramounts passed record with Leone films nothing else..
