Nice going - I almost made it there last year, but we got a bit lost trying to find Los Albaricoques and ended up running out of time. :)

I just got the "Where Eagles Dare" Movie Classics Special Edition from Cinema Retro mag, in the back there is an advert for the next one (as yet unpublished) - It'll be devoted to Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy.  :)

The WED mag is superb, loads of behind the scenes stuff. More details here: http://www.cinemaretro.com/index.php?/archives/2882-INTRODUCING-CINEMA-RETRO-MOVIE-CLASSICS-SPECIAL-EDITIONS-WHERE-EAGLES-DARE-TRIBUTE-ISSUE.html

Here's the ad itself :  O0

Thats excellent work amigo, I have to thank you because it is due to your efforts last year that I managed to find so many places during my trip there in June this year also.   O0

Film Locations / Spain trip 2009
« on: July 06, 2009, 04:35:03 AM »
After Regis' amazing work, on a recent trip to Spain I managed to visit a few locations and took some photographs. They can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/coldnebraskablue/sets/72157620276208479/ if anyone would like to see them. There are more to come, not all are published yet - hope to get them all uploaded over the coming days and weeks.  O0

Film Locations / Old(er) location pictures - some amazing shots.

I'v no idea if anyone has seen these before, but I just stumbled on these and I'm still trying to pick my jaw up from the floor - photos of great locations (La Calahorra, Texas Hollywood, Mini hollywood, Western Leone etc) taken in the 1980s. All in French, but the pictures just go on and on.... amazing stuff:

I wonder if this was the restoration ? It does mention the "original camera negative"...

your own tv screen probably crops even more than any of these releases...

Actually, it was when I was doing a quick comparison on my TV that I noticed the extra information (when Clint shoots the 4 Baxters)  ;D It was purely by accident though, I wasn't looking for it.

Also, the MGM SE has a lot of flickering on it, particularly during the "My mule don't like people laughing..." segment. The German Paramount is better in that regard, but this new restoration seems to be in a different league altogether.  When the 4 Baxters are shown in close-up before Clint shoots them, you can actually see clouds in the background in this new version.

Finally, in one of the extras, you get Allessandro Allessandroni sitting down playing a Spanish guitar and whistling the theme tune - its a great moment, almost worth the price of admission on its own.

Now, I wonder what these guys (the restoration people) could do with FAFDM and the others? O0

Second one, same deal:
From the top down, in this order:
1) Original UK Region 2 DVD (backup copy)
2) MGM UK Region 2 SE
3) Paramount German SE (TLE Films restoration)
4) Ripleys Home Video Italian DVD (new Italian restoration)

Thanks very much for these. I am thinking of getting the new DVD and this is very helpful.

You're welcome guys, and thanks to Jordan for starting the ball rolling! Definitely worth the investment, I'd say.  ;)

I would love to see screen comparisons if you want to take the time to do them  :)

Here's the first one, I'll get some more up in a day or so. From the top down, in this order:
1) Original UK Region 2 DVD (backup copy)
2) MGM UK Region 2 SE
3) Paramount German SE (TLE Films restoration)
4) Ripleys Home Video Italian DVD (new Italian restoration)

Look to the center-right on the bottom image, you'll see more of the building on the right. Also, top-right has a bit more mountain, and (possibly) a fraction more information along the bottom of the screen.

Thanks so much for posting the outtakes segment, it convinced me to go and import the set from dvdland.it. I'm happy to be corrected, but this looks like a whole new restoration of the movie, different to the MGM and German Paramounts from a few years back - I've only watched bits of it, and it looks superb. The restoration segment on the DVD unfortunately is only in Italian - pretty much everything else has English subtitles, but not that bit.

Also, one crucial thing, in the segment where Clint shoots the 4 Baxters who scared his mule, I'm convinced there is a bit more information on the sides of the picture. The guy who is shot on the right-hand side of the screen, in the MGM version you don't really see much of him as he falls (slightly off screen) - in this version, you can see a lot more of him, he's basically completely on screen.

I'm going to try and get some screen caps done, for comparison, but am interested in other peoples take on this if they have the new set.    :)
