    I don't think that is terrible. Amazon Germany has it listed with a release date of December 31, so seems like an end of the year kind of thing.

    A date that far forward is just a place holder. There's obviously a problem, so it could be the end of the year, or hopefully sooner, or never, depending on what the problem is.

    Well, there could be many reasons for a release date switch, not all of them would be classified as a problem. Seems unlikely there would a problem with the scan of the film as that was done a year or more ago, so the issue, whatever it is, is likely something to do with production of the discs. With the way things have been getting delayed because disc manufacturers are apparently a bit swamped, particularly it seems on some of these European based releases, it might be that they bumped production of the discs because other releases have priority. Waterloo being what would be thought of as an obscure release and there are a lot of other discs they want pressed prior to Christmas.

    I just don't think it is a problem at this point. If the disc ends up getting more than one delay then that's a problem.

    It's been a very long time since I last saw this film. What I remember most is that there is some motif that Sergio Leone used in one of his movies. I'd love to have this one in my collection but, like Robert Crawford, I have most of the other titles already.

    At least there are three unreleased Blu-rays in the set and it's priced low. I just wonder about the quality with that many films on three discs.

    December 31 is always a place holder. As least it has always been that way.
