I Just Bought … (the SW Shopping Diary)

After a very bizarre delay with the shipping from Germany to the USA, I received this glorious, hard to come by set thanks to our friend and @Admin Sebastian

He also included some cool postcard from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

He included a note on the back of one, but that stays private :grin: Thanks again to our Admin for helping me out.

Thanks Jeff :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

These two were at the right price, and I decided to take the plunge.

I do like Peter Lee Lawrence, and have heard this is one of his best.

Richard Harrison impressed me a lot in One After Another, and I want to see more of him. I know this one’s supposed to be a turkey, but some turkey’s are fun as well.

Have you seen Vengeance? I think that is his best Spagh. It’s like a mix between A Fistful of Dollars and Death Rides A Horse - in a Gothic Marghretti style.

When I first watched this movie, I wasn’t expecting much but I really ended up enjoying it.

One step closer to completing the collection. A guy was selling off all of his blu-rays and dvds and somehow had this so I was able to buy it for a very reasonable price. It looks like it is right out of the plastic.

East Germany’s Cold War era answer to the success of the Karl May films. Made by the state-run DEFA Studio, most likely under the watchful eye of the Soviet Union, these films are supposed to be highly political. I got a chance to purchase this collection, still in plastic and for a reasonable price, so I couldn’t resist. Technically Euro-Westerns but…

I’ve wanted to dip into these for a while, but there has never been English audio or subtitle options. Are these US releases with English options, and are they widescreen?

I haven’t watched them yet but they are in German with English subtitles and are supposed to be 1.85:1. It is a U.S. release.

The box set is shown on this page:

I used to own all three of those films myself and at one time, but I eventually sold them after I couldn’t look at the pro Socialist stuff objectively anymore. Also, the company that originally intended to put them all out didn’t utilize the right aspect ratio. They were originally 2:35:1, and they cropped them to 1:85:1.
