    Once Upon Time In The West had a showing on French television a few weeks ago in a gorgeous HD print with the best colour I’ve seen, far superior to the Blu Ray release we currently have available.

    I read the so called "new" release is the same as the last one so maybe French tv got theirs from another source. Certainly better from the colour pov and of course it was the full length French release. Saw it in October in a cinema in Toulouse, great to see again on a huge screen, and the print was the same as the Blu Ray, so in many ways the tv broadcast was a revelation!

    I read that the kino was no better than the last Paramount one. But I may hopefully be wrong

    Damn, I usually tape OUATITW on TV but missed this last one.

    Was this the old french print without Harmonica waking up on the platform?

    I doubt the Kino will be anything else than the regular Blu-ray master or masters.

    No it was the full length release I first saw in Fance in 1974, most complete I've ever seen, Harmonica waking up and all.

    But... Harmonica didn't wake up on the platform in any french dubbed release. It was only on one of the USA recuts/rerelease until they inserted it in the DVDs.
