OK, thanks, I will check this out. :wink:

[quote=“ENNIOO, post:111, topic:203”]Took a while to get released after it was classified on the 29th June 1972 by the BBFC. Comes no surprise the BBFC cut the film:

They rejected it totally 4 months previous to that too.

Watched this movie today, great movie! The KOCH media “italo-western collection” dvd. Original and very funny! Kind of aggressive towards the female, though!


(p.pereira) #124

Just got that same Koch/Cine plus release. Damn good.


(Mickey13) #125

Yes, I’ve that release too and I’m very satisfied. I liked particularly the documentary The Western World of Ferdinado Baldi. Very interesting, worth a look.

Saw this about a month ago, loved it! I have a certain affinity for blind characters, probably cause one of the main characters in my short stories is blind. Than, and Ringo Starr. I only have this on the Fast Saved Damned set, thought it was acceptable quality but not sure if it’s cut?

What’s the running time?

(And tell us more about those short stories)

Runtime was and hour and 24 minutes, I believe. The short stories are mostly works I’ve started but run into a standstill with. The one I’m working on now is like a Post-Apoc Spaghetti(like) story with “Nazi’s”. I managed to get my stuff together and type up this one, got the first chapter out. I also pretty blatantly referenced They Call Him Cemetery in it as well ::slight_smile: I don’t think it’s all that great, but maybe I’m just being modest. But hey, if you’re interested I can send you a copy of the Word doc.


(Mickey13) #129

Your copy of Blindman is cut. Better purchase Koch Media DVD, it’s a very good release with a decent number of extras, uncut version of movie and great picture quality. If you like the flick, you should certainly pick it up.


(autephex) #130
  1. Is it released by Koch?
  2. See above :wink:

(Jonny Powers) #131

Well, I don’t have a region free player, and I’m not sure if the code to unlock it worked (want to borrow a non-regon 1 dvd to test it), so I guess I’ll have to pick up the Cultcine version for now. Maybe for christmas…

OK, thanks. Then buy the German DVD released by the company CinePlus. I’m fully aware of the mistake that I fulfilled and I’m greatly embarrassed. :wink:


(autephex) #133

Oh no, that’s not what I meant! I was just agreeing with you. I was just making a silly joke that these are always the first steps in deciding which DVD release to buy: If there is a Koch release, then it is the one to get


(Stanton) #134

Same DVD anyway, but different artwork. Cineplus is or maybe was a sub label of Koch.

About 20 min missing. Quite a lot …


(Mickey13) #135

I was making a silly joke too. I’m not that defensive person by any means. :wink:
Nonetheless the release is great and might be the best one for this flick.


(sartana1968) #136

i give this one star more and goes to 4 out of 5
the transfer from koch media is very good but the english audio horrible not clean and hard you listen the shooting :’(

For those in the US who’ve been looking for a nice uncut copy of this film like I have been for the past few years here’s something I stumbled upon a couple weeks ago on amazon:

I ordered it on a whim about two weeks ago when I saw that it was advertising itself as the 105 min cut. Watched it when it arrived and sure enough it’s the full uncut version of the film in anamorphic widescreen. Picture quality was pretty good in my opinion as well. Not sure what the deal is with this edition. It’s a burn on demand disc, but the disc and packaging are pretty decent. No extras just the movie itself, but again the film is uncut and in anamorphic widescreen. Back of the box has a “RetroFlix” logo and copyright credit and a “manufactured by amazon.com” blurb near the barcode.

the audio it’s clean??


(The Ugly Insect) #139

I didn’t notice any major issues with the sound…it might have been a little softer than normal, but nothing major. Overall I was very pleased with this edition.


(Richard--W) #140

Has anyone seen this Australian version? According to the back cover, it’s 105 minutes, widescreen anamorphic, and NTSC. Can anyone confirm that? how is the picture quality?
