Just got my copy of Days of Vengeance. All looks well, except the typo in the synopsis.

As expected the audio is rather ropey throughout. A couple parts do sound ‘home dubbed’ on this disc, but I could be wrong. Also, a logo appears at the top right in a few scenes. (A TV station logo?)
But overall, better than Cult Action of course.
A TV logo? I never would have expected that from Wild East. Perhaps they made a composite using the edited Spanish version available on the X Rated disc.
That’s really quite strange for Wild East, at least it doesn’t look too distracting. I’m still waiting for mine to arrive, looking forward to re-watching this one in a better quality than my bootleg.
If people had known these films would be so hard to find decades from now, they should’ve just stolen the prints from the theater projection booths.
LOL That crossed my mind when I finally got to see a 35mm print of GBU … that seems recent to me, but it was actually 20 years ago … also, re-runs at my local have been digital copies … and I’m just not interested in that.
A station logo so small would be quite easy to blur with some basic editing software - I don’t recognize the logo.
I guess any print without the added scenes is sacred!
The print I saw was the same as the UK TV broadcasts, with Maria (fresh young whore) giving away Bill Carson after one slap.
Also it had the Italian signatures on the freeze frame for each character 'il brutto, il cattivo, il buono - for years I didn’t realise these were Italian and was quite surprised when I saw the English lettering on the DVD release. D’oh!
