    Several years ahead of you

    I still look occasionally to see if anything's changed or in certain discussions. Most of the time I still find myself scratching my head and still find them to be pretty meaningless in making decisions or in evaluating the movie quality on the disc

    It is the same for a number of people and I have decided to preface posts that contain screencaps or links to them with a disclaimer that I have no intention to direct those posts to people who have no use for them. It gets a bit repetitive for both sides to have the same discussion about the merits of screencaps over and over again and it can quickly derail a thread.

    I have to agree with you although I'm one of those with no use for screencaps except those I take myself.

    I've spent more than my fair share dealing with archival collections over the past year, and I gotta say the way Yale has organized that collection is a hodgepodged disaster. I wasn't aware 7th Heaven, LA Confidential, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Sanford and Son, and others were considered classics of the western genre.

    I suppose while I am saying "Owah Tennah Siam ;) (or would that be Cyan?)"
    If I posted them there I would have to put them in just about any thread about a film with "Color by Deluxe" ;)

    I may have seen this film at a Drive-In theater - providing the best in picture and sound quality ever offered for motion pictures !!! (;))
    So I can say without equivocation the caps look NOTHING like what I may have seen the theater ... :cool:

    Gotta say you are on a roll there - pun intended. That must have been the golden days of the roadshow drive-in presentations, was it Cadillac's only? ;)

    Completely irrelevant to the topic at hand/derailing the thread with nothing constructive. Good job I guess?

    At times, I know that attempts at humor gets lost in certain posts on boards like HTF. However, it's a good thing to keep our sense of humor when it comes to our Home Theater hobby because we're still talking about movies and not the cure for cancer or any other serious issue that affects the human race.:)

    Absolutely agree on the sense of humor - it is truly one of the great aspects of this board. Some of it’s obvious and some very subtle but in majority of cases put together with intelligence and love for this hobby of ours.

    Agreed. Teal caps - fantastic! Not to mention that King and I response. Thanks for the humor.

    It's purely subjective so don't go feeling inferior for not seeing what other people prefer. The cause for celebration seems to be that belatedly Kino have not interfered with the colors as they did with Fistful and GBU. The framing on Fistful is an improvement over the MGM presentation but the color timing is completely out of whack and unfortunately too many people are not willing to believe their own eyes but prefer to be told that this was how it was always meant to look! In the case of GBU they also managed to screw with the sound so although it is the best cut of the movie it is rendered virtually unwatchable due to color timing and bad audio sync. and no I'm not referring to dubbing of dialogue. If you watch the MGM versions the sound effects and music transitions are spot on, Kino just isn't. I look forward to seeing Kenos version but as they have not made the effort to restore the complete footage of the beating I doubt I shall purchase. One day someone may do it right but it'll probably take Tarantino to start his own label!

    I'd not noticed the sound effects, the eyesore or "ear-sore" for me was when MGM elected to add the musical "trill" when Manco shoots Red Cavanaugh on the saloon floor, that trill as far as I know had only previously been introduced as he spins his pistol into his holster so it worked as part of that "flourish " rather than a pointless musical "stinger" to a shooting. Sometimes it seems people forget to restore and instead allow their opinions to supersede those of the director.

    Watched this disc for the first time last night. It is certainly an improvement over the German disc. A minor quibble: someone made a mistake with the sound in the opening credits. It's out of sync with what's happening on screen. I always found the opening credits of FAFDM very funny because they literally get shot down, some of them dodging the bullets first. That effect is gone as the sound of the gun shots is no longer in sync with the movement of the credits.

    Once MGM started recutting the film and remixing the sound in the 1990's, it's suffered from sync issues since. It's somewhat ironic since the entire film was post-dubbed in 1967, and with purely analog tech they were able to keep it properly in sync, once it went digital it went out of sync.
