I watched a DVDr and compared it to a recording I made on VHS some ten years ago
The VHS (French audio) still has good video quality, but is heavily cut (guess what kind of scenes were cut!), the DVDr was sent to me by someone from San Antonio and was uncut, but had rather poor video quality
I have already ordered the German DVD
It's a must have, in the best possible version
IMDB says it premiered on february 5th in Italy, but Giusti (who usually is very precise on these things) says 1969; Casadio has '69 too. The italian SWdb has both dates, '69 in their list of films, '70 on the film's page ...
