Just for any fellow Brits out there and anyone who can pick up the usually terrible ITV1 channel, theyve bought the rights to the Dollars Trilogy and are showing them:

Fistful of Dollars 14/12 11.00
For a Few Dollars More 28/12 11.15
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly 29/12 11.00

that does of course mean unfortunately that we'll have to put up with adverts during the film - something we never have to put up with if its on BBC.  :-\

not a very good version of fistful of dollars shown on itv yesterday, the version channel 4 used to show is complete.

This version:

Was Pan-and-Scan - as we know an absolute crime with Leone films
The colours were bad
Cuts out some of the beating scenes
Has Piripero uttering some very strange language as Joe rides out, different from the full version.
And most crazy of all, when Ramon beats Silvanito in the stomach you see his mouth move where he's supposed to say: 'And that's for being his friend', but no sound comes out!

All in all it made it look so cheap!

Christ... sounds terrible.

I generally avoid TV screenings when I've got the video.


It's class.

For a Few Dollars More on last evening, caught a few minutes of it. Again it was pan and scan so u dont see all three of them in the corrida at the end. Dread to think what GBU''s gonna look like tonight.

I HATE ITV!!!!  >:( >:(

True to form, GBU pan and scan as well. So u cant see Tuco or clint in some of the shootout pictures. Wonderful.  >:( >:(
