    Agree with you on all points. The film is beautiful to look at; however, the singers are awful. Wish it had been The Ballad of Cat Ballou instead of The Ballad of Keoma. At least Ballou had better singers.

    It is visually up there with Leone's work and I don't think people would have been lost without all that caterwauling narration. I think it's more confusing that it is there because you sit there wondering "Why the hell did they do that?"

    I remember when I first saw the film I just thought the music with the singing was meant to be just a theme song...then I realized they were singing narration for each section of the story!

    It did make me think I wanted to hire these two singers to follow someone around for the day singing what they are doing...



    I guess best if I did that to someone I did not like.

    Many thanks indeed for this bit of very good news. I've been thinking of adding this film in some form or other to my collection for a long time. I must admit I'm surprised it's coming out on Blu-ray disc. Early Joanne Woodward and Allison Hayes too!
