DVD screenshots of A Fistful of Dollars | Per un pugno di dollari (1964)

Well…

Atlantic Film = the swedish disc from 2003, but the exact same version was probably released in Finland, Norway and Denmark
MGM UK = the 2-disc special edition (image quality is probably exactly the same between this and other MGM 2-disc special editions in Europe)
Paramount Germany = the 2-disc special edition released in 2005
RHV Italy 2005 = Italian release from 2005. There’s a newer one but I don’t have screenshots (yet) from it
RHV Blu-Ray 2008 = As you can see, from a new restoration


The disc by Paramount looks slightly worse to my eyes than the one by MGM but I’m not sure if it is only because of the field order problems the disc has (I haven’t found a way to get perfect screenshots from it so it has that interlacing problem) or if there is something else going on. But as you can see, the field order problem causes some serious problems when taking screenshots with my equipment (PowerDVD 8). Oh well… they deserve it for not fixing the problem. Anyways, please keep in mind that the interlacing doesn’t happen with most players and the disc looks kinda same as the MGM UK disc.
RHV’s old DVD is better than the other DVDs, but the Blu-Ray of course is superior in full resolution. The Blu-Ray also shows more image at all four sides.
As for the colors.. There are huge differences between the MGM/Paramount, RHV DVD and RHV Blu-Ray almost in all scenes. The MGM and Paramount discs look way too blue to me and I like the colors on the Italian discs more… Blu-Ray perhaps being the best at least in most scenes. But that’s just my opinion, and I don’t know how the film is supposed to look in Leone’s mind. The night scene at the cemetery looks like night on the Blu-Ray, and both Italian discs have the poncho looking like green in image #3 (it was olive green at the time of the filming).

Take your cursor over the link to the version you want see and it should appear automatically (below the links). Have patience though as it might take some time depending on your internet connection or how fast the server is currently working. If it doesn’t work no matter how long you wait, perhaps you have javascript disabled completely? If you want to see the images in 1920×1080 (FULL HD) resolution, you can do so by clicking on the version link (or open it into new window/tab). Currently the bigger resolution images are available only for MGM UK, RHV 2005 and RHV 2008 (excluding the opening credits), because the Atlantic Film disc is clearly inferior to the rest and the German disc is almost the same as the UK.
