It was released but it turns out we have the better copy. It only has French audio.
OH WHAT A COMPLETE LETDOWN :'(
That was gonna be this years Xmas present from Mrs Banjo. :(
I wonder if an English audio version ever came out on video which i'd like to see even if it is pan & scan. ::)
   Firecracker i noticed a few weeks ago on the SWWB that Long Live Your Death is due a decent widescreen release.Any news if this will have an English audio with hopefully subtitles where needed ;) ?

I remember djangokill mentioning that he has several different releases of Specialist in English and they are all very much cut.

Long Live Your Death was released in France and no English options. :( Don't know about any other releases.

Thanks Firecracker-that dvd sounds very interesting(with the horror elements)despite Peter Lee Lawrence being the lead actor-i haven't quite made my mind up about him yet having only see Killer Calibre.32 but i've got Garringo to check out yet ::)

Django is a remarkable Spaghetti Western but I think The Great Silence is Corbucci's Masterpiece.

I have seen all the movies but The Specialist (or maybe I saw It but I don't remember). Although I liked a lot Django, Il Mercenario and The Great Silence, my vote goes to Compañeros (uncut edition). I think that movie deserves more credit that what it has been given in this forum. In any case, I think all four I mentioned are great movies.

Companeros and The Mercenary are both fantastically entertaining sw's but in terms of "remarkable achievement" its easily Django for me.Both Great Silence and The Specialists carried on the style but still don't match up to the original.

I think GS is Corbucci's most notable achievement because of his willingness to violate all of the rules of, and thus transcend, the genre.

My favorite to watch though, is Companeros. I agree with Bandolero that it has been overlooked and in some cases unfairly maligned....

I've only seen the first two on the list, but I definitely prefer Django, which was silly but a lot of fun. Great Silence was... okay.

Yeah both Companeros & The Mercenary are too derivative of stuff like Bullet For The General to be considered"remarkable".

The shock downbeat ending in TGS was undoubtably unique for its time.

The ending to The Great Silence was indeed brilliant, but the simple fact of it will probably dissuade me from seeing it again.

Its just a shame that i hate sad endings. :'(

Its unfortunate that the cheesy happy ending lacks any audio though undeniably with this ending the movie would lose a great deal of its power.But i'd probably watch it more often if it did have the upbeat finale.Aren't i uncultured? ;D

I didn't mind the happy ending at all except for Silence's metal glove, which was just lame.

Maybe an audio would explain all?

I like Corbucci's gimmicks.Ever seen THE SPECIALISTS Groggy? Authenticity goes out of the window with hippys and a chainmail wearing hero but i love this film.At least the ending is enigmatic in a SHANE sort of way.

Tonight, I will watch The Specialist for the first time in your honor (and I will try not to notice the castle).
