    Found this by accident. Robert Aldrich's great political western, ULZANA'S RAID, is coming to Australian DVD on August 8 in an anamorphic transfer. (Apparently it will be released in Europe and Japan, too, bit on different dates and at higher prices). This will be the first time this teriffic film has even been available in OAR. The Laser Disc was full screen as was (I assume) the Goodtimes Region 1 release.

    Great news. This is an almost forgotten classic. I wonder which version it is. The US/Aldrich version and the European/Lancaster version cuts were edited differently. The version shown many times on UK TV also had bizarre censorship of the horse falls. This film has one of Burt Lancater's best acting roles and a brilliant script by Scottish writer Alan Sharp, who also wrote Night Moves.

    Sharp also wrote the screenplays for OSTERMAN WEEKEND and ROB ROY and wrote and directed a neglected little gem called LITTLE TREASURE with Burt Lancaster, Margot Kidder and Ted Danson. It was released on laserdisc, but will probably never make it to DVD (unfortunately)
