    International classic American westerns released only in region 2

    Black Patch is also available from Cornerstone (U.K). Not a bad film as I recall but more famous nowadays for being Jerry Goldsmith's first film score. Also...just as a follow-up to Colin's post above about the Suevia release of Bullwhip in Spain. I tried to order this through Amazon Spain in...

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    Thanks for the warning about Checkpoint...although I note that some of the contributors to Amazon's reviews seem to think its quality is quite good. Also, isn't this one on Spirit Entertainment? There's nothing indicated about its correct aspect ratio on the IMDb but I suppose we can assume that...

    The Virginian

    James Drury's own site carries the following update on Seasons 7 and 8. Although I will feel more reassured when TV Shows on DVD makes the announcement. UPDATE On The Virginian Season 7 and 8 DVDs from Timeless Media: The Season 7 release date has been moved to February 2013. Season 8 release...

    I wonder if anyone has picked up the Spanish release of Dark Of The Sun yet? I was wondering what the quality was like. This, of course, is assuming that it was actually released in December.

    Australian Bounty Classics (Hard to find 1950s films on pressed DVDs)

    I hadn't realised that Gun For A Coward was available in Australia either. I will definitely be going for that one. On the subject of Bounty releases, has anyone had a chance to check out any of their 'Arabian Nights' releases, I wonder? Specifically, Arabian Nights, The Prince Who Was A Thief...

    Fox Catalog DVD's (From New Label - Twilight Time)

    I received the Twilight Time version today too and have just watched it. I must say that I'm perfectly happy with it. A good clean print and, if there were interlacing problems, I didn't notice them. As the Beaver said in his review the sound level was set a tad low but that was no major...

    THE RED HOUSE (1947 Edward G Robinson): Which DVD to buy

    Before I got wise to the label, I made the woeful mistake of buying the Elstree Hill, UK release of The Red House. It is, without any doubt, the worst DVD I own. It's a lot worse than "very poor", I'm afraid. The picture pixellates regularly throughout the film...and not in such a way as to...

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    This is good to know. I considered getting Bullwhip a while ago but then realised that it was by Suevia...so I left it alone. However, I'm starting to get the impression from recent comments that Suevia are not entirely a "to be avoided like the plague" outfit. Does anyone know what the prints...

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    Most of those titles are very welcome. Thanks for posting. It's particularly good to see an alternative to the Archive for two of the Gordon Scott Tarzans. I suppose, though, that these will be tied up in the El Corte Ingles exclusivity deal for most of the rest of the year. Very good news just...

    Thanks for that Colin. Hmm...it's difficult to know what to do with this one - not to mention the others in the same series we referred to before. Ordering them in the hope that one of my two players can disable the subs is not a very tempting prospect. Even if they can, will the next player I...

    Thanks Colin. My poor credit card!

    7th Cavalry too? I hadn't spotted that one. That's great Colin. I'll be waiting anxiously to hear your verdict on Gunman's Walk.

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    I too am very interested in this one...provided there are indeed no forced subs, which normally plague French releases. The Beaver specifically states that they are not forced which is very good news. Interestingly, it also appears that The Nevadan and Guns Of Fort Petticoat are available on the...

    Sorry...I forgot THE LAST WAGON...which is also released in January. Still no sign of RIO CONCHOS though
