As promised here are some screenshots from Koch Media’s recent (region free!) Blu-Ray release of Yellow Sky, under the title Herrin der toten Stadt. As with the Ox-Bow Incident Blu-Ray the disc features English (and German) audio and optional English subtitles.
Extras on the disc include: Original theatrical trailer, radio excerpt with Gregory Peck, photo gallery and an 8 page booklet (part of the case).
Disc space used only 17GB so still around 7GB left… Use it damnit! ;p
Here is photo of the custom book style covers used for these western legenden series. The German age rating stickers are on the cover but can be removed (be careful). There are also Blu-Ray stickers on the covers (whyyyyyy) which are almost as big as the FSK ratings, these can be removed as well. Photo by Andreas Wagner.
Yellow Sky disc available at Amazon.de.

Here are five screenshots from the MGM disc as taken by eric.exe:
And here the same ones from the Italian disc with MPC (at least one isn’t an exact same frame):
Italian disc is cropped from the sides and top/bottom.
Don’t know for sure yet, but since the MGM transfer is different than the Italian one, I’d expect it to have all the usual cuts and other problem(s) as all the MGM DVDs do.
Probably won’t be much news anymore to most but the Spaghetti Western Collection Blu-Ray featuring Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and the Good, the Bad and the Ugly is now available for pre-order at Amazon.co.uk with a release date of 7th June 2010.
No details yet on the contents of the release (or perhaps I just didn’t find any), except for the movies included, or possible quality of the transfers but…
