I just produced the supplements for Koch - Media's fine German DVD - release
of Peckinpah's debut film. It will be the first worldwide with DVD extras:

- featurette PASSION & POETRY - THE EARLY SAM (28 min. Engl. w. optional German subs)
- Galleries with some 130 posters, LC's & stills
- Audio-Commentary (German)
- Booklet (German)

Of course it's the new wonderful 1:2,35 widescreen print that was done a couple
of years ago. Really fantastic.

Wanted to see this for some time.
Glad that Koch has finally put it out.
Didn't Koch release PASSION AND POETRY in its entirety?

Who is responsible for this ugly cover? Ain't it that difficult to make something beautiful?

No, PASSION & POETRY was released by my own company. Total running time 270 minutes.
It's available from my website, eBay UK (free shipping to the UK) and Amazon.de.

Here's an English review of the DVD-set:

This is great news, but I've already got the excellent Japanese release. What I really need is the Blu-ray. Any hope of that?

I once received an unwatchable P&S pile of crap dvd from buttflix--I guess it was my fault for not checking its details beforehand--so I've wanted to see this for a long time. Great news.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

I've just watched the mediocre french dvd release and though the movie has merits still didn't get me very excited. I think it's worth no more than 7\10.

Yes, Dave, all you have to do is be patient. In February the Japs put out the blu from an "HD remaster." I guess they heard this is The Year of Peckinpah? Well, it's certainly The Year of the Rooster.

Info (in Japanese) is here: https://www.amazon.co.jp/%E8%8D%92%E9%87%8E%E3%81%AE%E3%82%AC%E3%83%B3%E3%83%9E%E3%83%B3-HD%E3%83%AA%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B9%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC%E7%89%88-Blu-ray-%E3%83%A2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%AA%E3%83%B3-%E3%82%AA%E3%83%8F%E3%83%A9/dp/B01MYCANF1/ref=pd_sim_74_27?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DXZFPX66VRX0A0EJBM5W

Ordered!

From the first line of the most recent review over at amazon.co.jp:

画面のフレームが動く度に 像がカクカクします。HDでなくSDのPALマスターを使用しているのでしょうか。ブルーレイソフトとしてはお薦め出来かねる代物かと。

I saw it on TCM recently also, it's about a 6/10.
