Day of Anger / I giorni dell’ira (Tonino Valerii, 1967)

LOL. :smiley:

I believe I found the inspiration for the Scott Mary character in a U.S. western called “Black Patch”, which was released in 1957. The character is called fly trap and it is obvious that someone from “Day of Anger” definitely saw this movie at some point. The underlying story is different, but the fly trap character is Scott Mary without a doubt. There is a good region 1 release of it on DVD by Televista, in its OAR 1.37.

Rewatched this one yesterday and had a good time with it. I hadn’t seen it in over five or six years and had forgotten how good it is. I also watched it for the fist time in English (I made a copy for someone else a while ago, but hadn’t watched the version myself). So far I only knew the Italian language version from the Medusa disc. In this case (Van Cleef’s original voice) it does make a difference. Itslows a bit down and the town scenes have a very ordinary look, almost as if you’re in a bonanza episode, otherwise a great movie

I watched the Cult Cine version, a combination of the video of the Frenche disc and the audio of the Wild east Disc. With one NTSC, the other PAL, those guys from Cult Cine had a quite a few problems to synch things (leading to ‘tics’ in the soundtrack).

Great job, scherp (as always). Thanks for the effort. :slight_smile:

The missing scene from the German DVD (and maybe from other releases) is this one:

If you watch closely at the background you realise that this 30 sec scene was taken from another part of the movie and inserted here probably for artistic reasons in the awareness of a continuity error. Like most continuity errors I never spotted it until it was discussed because of the cut DVD.


(scherpschutter) #147

I think it’s in the Italian DVD, I’ll check this later.

If you (or anybody else) has the German DVD, could you make a few screenshots?


(scherpschutter) #148

No, it’s not in the Italian DVD version.

Giuliano Gemma goes outside, turns to the left and meets the group of deputies in the street (in the clip at the 53 seconds point)
The missing scene starts at about 19 seconds into this clip, when Scott hears Murph behind him and turns around.

So that means about 34 seconds are missing.

I’ll make a rough translation of the dialogue and add the link to the EXTRA page

Loved the review, Scherp. This movie is in my top 10 ( thanks again!), Van Cleef, Gemma, Ortolani’s magnificent score, what’s not to like? 5 stars for me. When watching the movie I did notice a possible influence from the film “Warlock”. I watched it a few months back on Netflix.

I have been under the impression the Wild East disc is the longest version of this available. Although the old Japanese disc might be the same (maybe it was the source for WE’s disc).

WE’s disc is 1:51:00 (and very likely PAL speed as is usual for their releases) if you remove their own credits from it so there is around 1min40s of difference to the other releases?

EDIT: Just like to add that the newer Japanese disc is shorter (1:49:22 I have been told, which is the same as the French disc). Wouldn’t be surprised if the upcoming Blu-Ray will also be this version.

==The Missing Scene==

This seems to be the scene missing from most releases. Instead of two minutes (as mentioned on the Cult Cine site) it lasts only 34 seconds. It’s part of a longer scene, appearing rather late into the movie, after the opening of the Casino. Scott (Gemma) goes outside, turns to the left and meets the newly appointed deputies in the street. But in this clip (at the 19 seconds point), he’s suddenly addressed by Murph and turns around. The scene is definitely taken from another source

Rough translation of the German dialogue:

Murph: "Scott!"
Scott: "What do you want?"
Murph: "Do you absolutely want to get killed, my boy?"
Scott: "Oh, shut up! I don’t believe of word of it."
Murph: "You’ll see, he’ll only interfere when there’s no danger for him."
Scott: "You can tell me what you want, but I’ve got things to do;"
Murph: "Listen, if I were you I wouldn’t step into these affairs"
Scott: “Ahhh”

So if Sundance is right, we still have a gap of about a minute.

The Italian disc runs 1:49:19
As said a few very minor cuts were made to remove print damage (at the end of reels), but that won’t close the gap, I guess.


(Stanton) #152

The German theatrical version is the German DVD + these 34 sec. I have a copy from TV from it, which runs 149:56 min. No credits or inserts at the end, but the music ends over black film. The DVD runs 109:22 min. Both in Pal of course.


(Provvidenza) #153

Great work sherpschutter, and thanks for the link guys really nice to see the missing scene, awesome SW deserving a definitive release.

The only version of the movie I have is the latest Japanese Imajica DVD release, which I can confirm runs 1:49:22 NTSC.
Here are a some screensnaps.

Surprised Wild East have never re released this one.


(autephex) #155

It is surprising… surely they could make a decent chunk of change on something that is already completed.

Or perhaps they have a little stash of discs they are selling on ebay :wink:

Although perhaps not, since their release is inferior to others at this point…


(ENNIOO) #156

Exactly.

Ha, ha never thought of that. You never know :wink: .

I have thought of that too. Crazy prices are paid for the discs, if you still have a couple of them, you can make a (small) fortune - and in a time that DVD and CD shops are closing down, one by one.


(autephex) #158

Yeah lately I’ve been considering buying up any and all WE releases with how much they seem to be valued after going OOP

Not sure if this applies to most or just the early releases though.

I’ve heard about people offering a lot of money for the original (inferior) Arizona Colt release, so I guess it’s a collector’s thing


(ENNIOO) #160

I think so. Know a few obsessive collectors.
