Hondo and the Apaches (Lee H. Katzin, 1967)


(The Man With a Name) #1

Hondo and the Apaches is a feature film that was made from two episodes of Hondo, the 1967 TV series starring Ralph Taeger. It was released as a TV movie in the United States but ended up getting a theatrical release in the United Kingdom and Europe. Unfortunately it hasn’t been given a very good DVD release. The version available on a double feature with A Man Called Noon has footage missing. There’s a German DVD on Amazon. Does anyone know whether it has English audio?
Even though it’s nothing spectacular, I think it works as an enjoyable B movie. Anything with Apaches and stake-outs is good enough for me:

There is a review on Amazon. That guy said there is only a german sound (dolby digital 2.0) and no subtitles.

That’s a shame. It’s a pity the entire TV series hasn’t been given a DVD release.

Seems to be German Audio only. Reviews say the image quality is ok. Another review mentions that it is cut. It is really just the feature film, at 82minutes.
