    Unconquered, Canyon Passage and Rawhide have had region one releases. I have them. Unconquered was released by Universal in 2007 and Canyon Passage also in 2007 as part of Universal's Classic Western Round-Up Volume 1 collection. Rawhide (1951) was released by Fox in 2008 as part of a box set called Fox Western Classics that also included Garden Of Evil and The Gunfighter.
    Not on your list but I have Calamity Jane And Sam Bass with Yvonne De Carlo and Howard Duff from Universal France and Montana Belle with Jane Russell from England courtesy of Odeon. From Italy I have Ticket To Tomahawk with Anne Baxter and Dan Dailey. From Australia I have Drum Beat with Alan Ladd. From Germany, Sitting Bull (1954) in 2.35 but a mediocre transfer but at least in its scope format.

    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 the summer and after a while I got a cancellation notice saying that it was now discontinued.

    A couple of those titles are available stateside in compilations, Colin.
    Black Patch is available here as well, Dafydd.
    I will update the checklist. Or shopping list, as the case may be.
    Thanks immensely for your input, everyone.
    Do keep checking back for revisions.
    Recently the studio MOD programs have released a number of American westerns that had only been released in Europe, or the checklist would be a lot longer.

    Two other corrections:
    From Noon Till Three did at some point have an R1 release from MGM. It seems to be quite rare these days. I didn't even know the release existed until I found it at Big Lots recently for $3!
    Also, Viva Zapata! is available in R1 Blu-Ray as part of The Elia Kazan Collection, Volume 2 from FoxConnect.
