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.
This one isn’t about a spaghetti so if that bothers you, stop reading… Anyways, as some of you may be interested in the US westerns as well, here are a few screenshots from the recent German Blu-Ray of the Ox-Bow Incident (from Koch Media). The disc has English & German audio and optional English subtitles (which don’t 100% match the spoken English dialogue) and is region free. It is actually vol. 9 in Koch Media’s Western Legenden Series but only one other so far (Yellow Sky as no. 7, I’ll add some screenshots later) is available as a Blu-Ray release.

It was just reported at SWWB that the Koch Media’s excellent Sergio Sollima Italo Western DVD Box is now sold out. I guess meaning all the remaining boxes are now at various stores and once the stocks are out there won’t be new ones coming in.
So if you were thinking of ordering the box now would be a good time to do it. Not sure if Amazon.de will be able to deliver them anymore (it says 5-7 days currently) but there are some available from the marketplace. Or you could order one from Xploitedcinema which still has some in stock.
Koch Media will be releasing four new spaghetti western DVDs 19th of October and these are now available for pre-order from Amazon.de. The releases are El Chuncho, quien sabe? / A Bullet for the General, Arizona si scatenò… e li fece fuori tutti / Arizona Colt Returns, Yankee and a spaghetti western documentary Denn sie kennen kein Erbarmen – Der Italowestern.
All the films should have either English audio or subtitles even though the subtitles won’t be mentioned in the cases (and maybe not even in the menus). Unfortunately I can’t remember if the documentary will have subtitles, but I’d say it’s likely.
The ‘A Bullet for the General’ disc is supposed to be longer than any previous DVD release of the film, and it is possible it will also include the alternate (and shorter) US English dub that hasn’t been available on DVD before.
