    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...

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    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...

    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...

    Koch have updated their site and it appears that the first western releases of next year will be UNION PACIFIC ; THE HIRED HAND and Vol. 2 of their CLASSIC WESTERN COLLECTION re-releases box set. This second set will contain SASKATCHEWAN; DUEL AT SILVER CREEK and ROUGH NIGHT IN JERICHO. I'm...

    Thanks for the screencaps and whether it's gr. or de., I'm defintely grabbing this one!

    Fox is still releasing a lot of classic in Spain, never released in USA

      It's very disappointing if Starscafe are starting to slide. But on the point of the titles you listed that they don't offer (yet)...isn't that just an example of the previously discussed exclusivity at other sites for a few months? Or have you noticed that this is a separate issue to that?

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    Has anyone heard which three westerns Koch are going to include in Volume 2 of their Classic Western Collection Box series? The first volume, which was released during the summer, was a good way of obtaining Horizons West, Chief Crazy Horse and The Appaloosa at a much lower price than the...

    Of course...sorry for misunderstanding. I've just re-read Robin's comment that prompted my post, and now I see what he meant "another Elstree Hill OR another Eureka" ...opposite ends of the spectrum, so to speak. Got it!

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    I was aware of Elstree Hill's reputation but I hadn't realized that Eureka were also considered to be a shady outfit. The only release I have from them (as far as I'm aware) is The Clouded Yellow...a personal favourite. While it's true that they made a blunder last year and released a version...

    Fox is still releasing a lot of classic in Spain, never released in USA

    My orders with Starscafe have all been held until everything came into stock and, when they had, I was sent one parcel with everything in it. I don't remember selecting this an option when placing the order...it just happened by default. They keep you fully informed by e-mail as to when every...

    Hard to find Universal Westerns coming to Region 4 - Australia

    I've just received my copies of Man Without A Star and Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here from Australia. Although both were released by Umbrella at the same time...oddly enough, my copy of Man Without A Star is in NTSC while ...Willie Boy is in PAL . The box of MWAS states that it's PAL and full...

    Thank you posting information about these two releases Sergio. Interesting. In view of the flag issues on The Naked Edge, it might be worth pointing out that this is also due out in the U.K next week. To begin with, as an HMV exclusive and then as a general release in November. For anyone...

    International PAL AND OTHER-REGION DVD ANNOUNCEMENTS & REVIEWS

    Thanks for taking the trouble to post those screenshots Colin. That certainly answers my question. No, the picture quality isn't stellar but it will do I suppose unless someone's heard that Koch have it lined up in Germany.

    I have just noticed that Six Black Horses has been released in Holland. I'm very fond of this one. I thought, previously, that it had only appeared in France...in the range of Westerns which all contain non-removable subtitles. I was wondering if it's safe to assume that the Dutch release is OK...

    Fox is still releasing a lot of classic in Spain, never released in USA

    It's interesting to hear about The Last Challenge (a.k.a.The Pistolero Of Red River) but I'm confused. May I ask how you have established that this is 'lined up'? Ever since DVDGo invited me to e-mail them my credit card number (seriously) to complete a transaction last year, I will have...

    Fox is still releasing a lot of classic in Spain, never released in USA

    Has anyone here picked up the French release of Rio Conchos yet? I'm quite anxious to know whether it's 'zoomed in' in the same way that the Spanish release was, or if it's full, anamorphic, 2:35. And..please... no burned-in subs, I hope! The on-line specs suggest that it's OK but there's...

    Fox is still releasing a lot of classic in Spain, never released in USA

    I just thought I'd mention that Starscafe in Spain currently have a promotion on some Western titles that have not been released outside Europe (except for the Archive, in one case). I managed to pick up Across The Wide Missouri; The Last Hunt and A Distant Trumpet for Euro 5.95 each. There's a...

    Fox is still releasing a lot of classic in Spain, never released in USA

    It's very interesting to hear about the Australian Bounty releases and, also, that they're of good quality at such a low price point. I think an e-Bay Au. order for Walk The Proud Land, Streets Of Laredo, Posse From Hell and Horizons West will be placed very shortly! It will be especially...
