¡Three Amigos! 25th Anniversary Edition features over 20 minutes of never-before-seen footage and a beautiful Blu-ray transfer overseen by director John Landis (Animal House).  Emmy® Award winners Steve Martin (It's Complicated), Chevy Chase (Community) and Martin Short (Damages) star in Three Amigos, an uproarious comedy classic about three out of work silent movie actors who think they have stumbled upon the role of a lifetime.  In 1916, the notorious bandit El Guapo and his gang are terrorizing a remote Mexican village.  The daughter of the village leader, having seen a silent film featuring "The Three Amigos," sends a telegram to the trio, believing them to be real heroes, asking them for help. Thinking they're being offered a fortune for a personal appearance, the actors arrive in Mexico, only to discover they will be dodging real bullets!  (Order Date: October 18, 2011,SRP: $14.98,Runtime: 105 minutes,Rating: PG, Discs: 1)

Mine. The old DVD was terrible so I never picked it up.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Hopefully they found the footage of Sam Kinison as a Mexican bandit. "IN-famous?" :)

In a way, all of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us. But as sure as my name is Lucky Day, the people of Santa Poco can conquer their own personal El Guapo, who also happens to be the actual El Guapo!

Done!  Ordered.  I'm not sure what's with HBO video, but I love this batch of new $10 Blu-rays!
