Someone should probably fix the title of this thread.

I tried to fix my error as soon as I saw it was a mistake. I don't know how to change it.

What’s the error? That it’s not true HD?

I'm really looking forward to the WB Archive release. I love this film. It would be great to have the Italian uncut version as well...

Not sure if its true but someone mentioned elsewhere that WAC may not have the rights to the Italian version and if there is no HD master I doubt they would re-master two cuts of the film in HD for one blu ray release. It would be nice though but I doubt it will be included.

This is not an HD version on Amazon.
It’s not listed as HD in the description and watching it right now it’s clearly not HD.

This was removed from free with Prime days after this topic was started.

Now it’s gone completely, vanished.
There is a Blu-ray coming from Warner Archive but looks like the shorter, English language edition.

I watched the first 10-15 minutes on Amazon when it was there.

Was dubbed and badly just like probably all of Leone’s movies.

Well someone should fix the "HD" too because clearly it never was. I have the Italian complete cut on a German Blu-ray, which I'm trying to find - I moved and things are in disarray in my usual very ordered discs and CDs - want to compare it to the Archive Blu, which I'm in the middle of watching - short English version of 128-minutes (not so short, really) and clearly not off any kind of camera negative, but some cut internegative prepared for MGM back then. The color's okay so far but it's VERY grainy and while the detail is okay it's never really great.

Doesn’t really matter as it was removed from Amazon Video anyway.
