Notes: The disc has two versions of the film. The difference is the amount of filters used. If you just push play for the movie, you will be shown the filtered to shit abomination. The more film like, closer to source material version is available through the extra material menu.


The cover claims the disc is the first spaghetti western available on Blu-Ray worldwide. Don’t understand how they could ignore the MGM GBU disc, the MHE GBU disc, RHV’s Fistful of Dollars, and Mondo’s For a Few Dollars more and My Name Is Nobody… oh well.

According to the cover the disc is region B, but I can’t seem to be able to verify it with my equipment/programs. If anyone knows for sure, please let me know!

Reversible cover with the other side without the FSK-18 sign.
