NEW STUFF IN AND AROUND THE SWDB IN SEPTEMBER 2023:
- We’re still trying to get in touch with the person who ran the Altervista website SPAGHETTI WESTERN DATABASE if anyone knows, please send us a message.
- We’re also trying to locate our friend from Finland who went by the name of Shobary (with the popular SW website with that title).
Why? We want to rescue and preserve the remnants of these two websites, like we’re currently doing with A Fistful of Pasta (still a work in progress).
- Let us know if you want to help with our new master calendar Calendar - The Spaghetti Western Database and company directory Company directory - The Spaghetti Western Database. We still need help to fill those with information, please get in touch!
- … as always: join the SWDb, help out, it will make it better You don’t have to become a full time editor or official staff member to contribute. Anything from being active in the forum over correcting spelling mistakes to joining entire improvement projects is more than welcome. From all over the world, in all languages, we welcome help!
The major overhaul of the SWDb is nearing completion. We continue work on the improvements of the SWDb, notably the film pages (these are almost done), and we’re now touching up other parts of the database (for example check out the new “Browse all” page Browse all - The Spaghetti Western Database). If you’re interested in seeing what we’re doing or if you want to join and help, click here to read about it: SWDb 3.0 (our massive 2022/2023 project)
If you’re a Letterboxd user, we hope you’re as excited as we are about the official SWDb Letterboxd HQ account. Click here to learn more about that (long story short: follow us on LB).
Also: all the revised film pages in the SWDb have a direct link to their respective LB entry.
In September there weren’t all that many releases. Most notably, the second installment of the MacGregors arrived on an HD format.
In October there will be some much appreciated releases in the UK, the US and Germany, and the usualy swathe of quadruple dip re-releases in Germany etc.
And the rest of the year is taking shape, as you can see from the calendar. The biggest announcement so far being yet another box set by Arrow Video that includes the long-awaited El Puro.
All in all, our calendar is slowly extending into late summer… stay tuned!
