Gosh, I just registered here and I’m already soliciting help, how shameful! Hehe, well, this is how it goes, I’m a big fan of the movie “Have a Good Funeral, My Friend… Sartana Will Pay”, it’s by far my favourite Sartana, and I’m looking to buy a DVD of it. I guess the easiest way to obtain it is to buy one of those cheap box sets, but the problem is, I’m looking to buy an edition of the film that looks good and that has the Italian audio track (honestly, them Sartana flick are just better in Italian and I can’t stand Franco Pesce’s dubbed voice). So this leaves just one option, the Spanish DVD (and no, I don’t care about the lack of subs, I’ll burn it on my computer and add my own if I must). Except, there is very little information about this version on the net and I’m a bit hesitant to spend 20 something Euros without knowing a tad more about it.
Supposedly, the DVD has the original aspect ratio of 2,35:1 and a running time of 95 minutes. The original running time is 96 minutes, is it cut or does it last something like 95 minutes and 35 seconds and they decided not to round it up? A Fistful of DVDs states that it might be the same print as the X-Rated kult DVD, but this one runs 92-93 minutes. Is this PAL speedup thing making this confusing or something? Does anybody knows?
And just how much is cut in the X-Rated kult DVD? The German link that offers a comparison seems to indicate that it’s only cut of a few seconds compared the German TV broadcast.
I’ll try to contact the guy at 800 spaghetti westerns (anybody knows proper Spanish? I can read a little, but I can’t write without Google Translate) because I think he reviewed the movie using the Spanish DVD. Worse comes to worst, I’ll just freaking buy the flick and tell you about it. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
