Who is that blonde fellow to the right of Clint on the FFDM cover?

That would be the German actor Klaus Kinski (hence the cover design).  He played the hunchback.

It doesn't look a bit like him. I was thinking that it might be that blonde fellow in the tank-top shirt sitting down in the church during the Groggy arrival scene. The one eating the chicken leg I think.

Haven't got it yet, but this is the official press release:

The time has come: On October 6, Paramount Home Entertainment Germany will issue Sergio Leone's "Fistful Of Dollars" and "For A Few Dollars More", both produced for DVD by TLEFilms.

The Clint Eastwood classics were transferred from the best 35mm elements available on a High Definition Spirit Datacine at 1080 23.98PsF to HD-D5 at 235 Mbit/s and meticulously restored both in picture & sound (including the English track) to the complete length of 97 and 127 Minutes, respectively (on DVD at 25fps PAL). "For A Few Dollars More" includes now the sequences of the beating scene intended to be in the film that were cut on all other releases. Both pictures will contain the restored mono soundtracks in English and in German, with an alternative 5.1DD upmix, made by MGM, also being offered.

The films will be available both as separate 2-Disc Sets and a 4-Disc Digipack Edition. Also, in a special, limited release, Paramount issues both films in a unique, wooden boxed set with a golden pocket watch, coins, collectable film frames and much more.

TLEFilms supervised the mastering process all the way down to the DVD encoding, insuring through the use of the full disc capacity and the highest bitrate possible the best quality on DVD. All features include English subtitles.

More on the two releases on the TLEFilms website - with screenshots & more.

It seems the For a Few Dollars More disc is still having cuts in it. From another forum (at http://www.dvdtherapyjapan.com:16080/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=2609&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=255&sid=8cbabcc1cfd8dcc77420f2c0439ff60c ) :

Unfortunately is "For a few Dollars more" also cut
Here are two scenes from a German TV broadcast (also missing on the MGM SE)
http://www.finger-spiele.de/stuff/media/szenen.zip
- Clint goes to the saloondoor (3-4 sec.)
- Volonte laughs longer (1-2 sec.)


The beating scene is longer but not fully uncut.



Great. Wink

20 secs reinsteaded of the Indio laugh/beating sequence ads too Volente's portrayal of the charactor, motive and the film overall. That to me is a cut. And makes the film better for being present.

(After watching the zip file)
If transitional 2 sec cuts (1 at most) are now bad news to some.  These people will never be happy. This is starting to give me headache.  Roll Eyes

5 years from now, on the next Dollars Release.. somebody will remember Chico takes one more step down a stone stairway  and Wild the Hunchback scrathes his ass in the background on a version they watched on late night TV 10 years ago.
And its suddenly bad news on the forums.

HEX:

The German DVDs have one of those  'blue parmount boot menus' 
English, German etc. Most R1/R2 DVDs have a whole world of language on these screens.
What language you choose defines the set up of the film audio, subtitles and dvd menu.

Well, cut is cut. Thats it. :p

Then again, I'm not sure if those two cuts (in the zip file) have been in any theatrical release. If they have been, then I'd say it sucks to not have them in the disc. If not, then it ain't that big deal, but deleted scenes would have been nice since the material clearly exists.

Oh well, atleast now they have another reason to release the films yet once again on DVD with more extra scenes! Wink

Besides, the beating scene is still said to be cut, not by much but cut anyways. I thought it was supposed to be completely restored on the disc and apparently it is not.
Not surprising remembering the same companies' "Nobody is the greatest" cuts. Wink

And sorry, I dont' know where the completely beating scene could be seen.

EDIT: http://dave-75.tripod.com/FAFDM.htm here are descriptions of the beating scene. I have heard the cut in the Paramount disc might have something to do with boot on Clint's back.
