    Anyone heard of the status of this fine movie on DVD?
    I have loved this one since I was a kid (well I loved the Trinity movies as well) and would love to add this to my collection!

    You know, I actually sat through the pan&scan DVD of They Call Me Trinity...it was so bad, it was good! [​IMG]
    (Heck, if it were in widescreen, I would probably buy one of my own!)

    It's also out in Japan, on a nice looking LTBX disc that includes the English soundtrack. Here's the CDJapan link:

    It's part of an extensive Spaghetti Western series coming out on Japanese DVD at the moment, currently approaching 20+ titles and causing fans to weep about (a.) the rarity and general coolness of the titles selected, and (b.) some truly wallet-destroying prices.

    Frank - Which version did you get? I'd be interested in comments on video quality for both of these DVD releases. Not that I'm expecting much [​IMG] , but one can hope. The Japanese release is truly expensive at $42US. Also, is it truly Region 2 encoded or is it Region 0? I *love* this film and would really love to have a copy if either disc doesn't look too dismal.

    Video quality is not the best so yea, don't expect much. Id say it was equal to the VHS version. It's region 0 as far as I can tell. And with shipping it cost almost $42. Yup I really wanted it.

    I got mine at www.Videoflicks.ca . I experienced some pixilation problems, but I LOVE this movie and had to have it...

    Thanks for the input guys. I ended up ordering the PID letterbox release through Amazon for $24. It's been YEARS since I've seen this film and I can't wait to get the disc. Even if the video and audio quality is low it'll be a hoot to watch Terrence Hill cooking beans in the firebox again.

    I'm glad I still have my 2.35:1 Widescreen Laserdisc of this movie. I would re-buy a nice Widescreen version of this on DVD as well as the trinity movies.

    The Canadian release is a bootleg. Universal owns the U.S. rights and should seriously consider releasing this and many of the other Western classics (WINCHESTER 73, THE NAKED SPUR, NO NAME ON THE BULLET) in their catalog.
