    Just curious. I watched this movie on laserdisc and I absolutely loved it. I was hoping to find out some info on its DVD release and I did a search, but to no avail.

    Paramount say that the title will be available late this

    year, but more likely next year. They want to do it right.

    I think the Leone estate has granted access to a longer version...?

    Any confirmations?

    On a related issue, just finished watching (on my 56" w/screen RPTV) MGM's The Good, The Bad & The Ugly DVD and I have to say the 2:35 anamorphic image looks stunning, no EE and hardly any print damage, up there with say Lawrence of Arabia (good example because Leone & Lean were both masters of the scope ratio and also loved their trains) very impressive for a 4 year old non special edition, when they do a special edition my first concern would be EE

    Does anyone know, was this master from a HD source and had it been recently restored ?
