Try this DVD. It is in widescreen. :)

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: Voice actors for Restored Version
« on: December 12, 2012, 11:32:35 PM »
TCM showed GBU tonight. The end titles for the Extended English-labguage version list the following voice actors

Matt Keeslar, Paul Pape, Simon Prescott, David Sargent, Burton Sharp, Andre Sogliuzzo, Christopher Weeks, and Tom Wyner

However, it does not say which voice actor dubbed which character in the movie

Sorry pal, but it is obvious that you either didn't read the quote by Frayling or you completely misunderstood it.
Again, Frayling said (in 1981) that Morricone's non-Leone music has seldom matched his work with Leone.
Now you respond, as some sort of rebuttal to that, by saying that A) Morricone's concerts are packed; and that B) Morricone's most popular hits are his pre-1981 work with Leone.

I'd be really impressed if you can explain how that is in any way, shape, or form,  a rebuttal/response to Frayling's statement.

You either did not read the statement by Frayling or you completely misunderstood it  ::)

Perhaps if you read the thread from the beginning you will understand. The post where you are quoting me is a response to a few different posts. Specifically, when I mention 1981 I am answering to Dave Jenkins and Groggy's posts from August 15 2011.

GBU is a hugely popular, famous film. MGM knew they were going to make their money back and more with the SE.

TBG is by no means a hugely popular famous film. Sony is not going to make much money from it at all.

I don't think it would take a gazillion $$$ to dub a few scenes into English. Besides, Sony also made a "restored" version of Major Dundee, and I am not sure they made a lot of money from it either.

FrancoCleef's version still contains a few scenes in Italian in the English audio track.

Sure it does, CG, but unlike Sony I don't think that Franco Cleef has a professional studio with actors to make the English dubbing of the Italian audio scenes. I aso doubt he would have the ability of reproducing the background sounds.

Franco Cleef did a remarcable job, presumably with a portion of the equipment available to studios like Sony. I would not expect him to dub the Italian scenes into English, so I can live with a few subtitled scenes with Italian audio. However, I would expect Sony to dub into English those scenes if they are going to "restore" the movie to what would have been an uncut English version.

Why are folks here praising Sony for their "restoration"?
A true restoration would have all the restored scenes dubbed in ENGLISH like was done with GBU.
The guy who dubbed LVC could do the same here.

Stick with Franco Cleef's version which also has a far superior, stereo music mix

screw SONY >:(

Are you saying that the Sony restored version still contains a few scenes in Italian in the English audio track?  :o ???

"cinema indirecto"

Everyone praised the cut where Angel eyes visted the outpost...opposed to everyone´s suprise when he just turned up at Batterville.

OUATITW deviates a lot from the "dollars" trilogy. I would leave the movie the way it is in it's current cut.

Also, if I remember correctly, the scene you mention from GBU was always in the Italian cut, but was never included in the English version.

Franco Cleef will always have my respect for the restoration he made of The Big Gundown. Thanks to his efforts, many of us did enjoy the uncut version in English for many years before Sony decided to put its $#it together.

Kudos to Franco Cleef!!  O0 O0 O0 O0 O0

can I do a one-time hack to get it to play everything? or would I have to keep switching back and forth between R1 and R2 every time I wanted to play one or the other? I'm not very technologically knowledgeable so I am hesitant to do anything that I couldn't easily reverse or that may screw me up. I never had a computer or other electronic shit as a kid, and seriously, to this day I get this Freudian anxiety at anything to do with electronics, even simplest things, like taking a new device out of the box and doing the basic set-up. I'm no spartan; I have a 32" LG HDTV, Samsung Blu Ray Player, and MacBook, and iPod with a touch screen.... But I still have this fear about goofing around with anything cuz I am worried I may not be able to get it back to how it was  ;)

On my Philips it is a one-time hack, and when you set it to Region 0 (Region Free) it will play any DVD regardless of the region it was encoded for. However, not all DVD players are hackable; or, if they are, their hack codes may not be known. You can do a search for your particular make and model, as there are many Samsungs. Try this page for starters:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that TVs sold in PAL countries tend to support NTSC, but TVs sold in NTSC countries (or perhaps just North America?) do not tend to support PAL.

My mistake, you are correct. This,  however, is not a problem, since DVD players usually have a PAL/NTSC converter. Mine does.

My collection of movies does not include Blu Ray for now, so since my Philips BDP3406 can play Region A it will be quite awhile before I need to upgrade. It also plays all sort of video files, including Matroska. And again, it can be hacked to make it DVD Region Free. >:D

I have an LG TV, a Samsung blu ray player. That wouldn't support PAL, would it?

It depends on the models. Virtually all of today's TVs can reproduce a PAL signal, but most DVD Players in North America are set for Region 1 only. Many of those DVD players, however, can be "hacked" to make them "Region Free" by introducing a code with the remote control. I have a Philips BDP3406 Blu Ray player, cheap but and it plays anything you can imagine in any format: PAL, NTSC, MKV, AVI, you name it.

Check in Google if there is a hack for your particular DVD player. Just type the brand and model plus the word "hack" and see what you get.  ;)
