  Enjoy your free DVDs guys!  This is probably the best DVD re-release of a Clint flick ever, at least until an "Unforgiven" SE DVD comes out with deleted scenes and an alternate ending :)

Doesn't this one suit you?  ;D

Amazon DVD Link

Well there are no deleted scenes.....or an alternate ending

Guess you'll have to keep waiting.   :D

  No deleted scenes or alternate endings on there; those are the only extras I really like.
  Still, I was asleep with the switch when that one came out - I didn't even know it existed!  Thanks Danny.

  Hehe, I just bought it off Ebay.  I now vaguely remember people talking about the Maverick extra on the board.

That's a pretty good price compared to Amazon.

There IS an alternate ending, or at least there was, but I don't think Eastwood wants anyone to see it, ever ...  ;)

That Unforgiven Special edition has Clint on Maverick.

Also, it has a pretty good documentary on it.

Yeah Agent, the price is nice but I truly can't wait.  I had to stick in the old GBU last night just 'cause I couldn't handle waiting a whole week for it to get to me from Cal...   ;)  I did thank him through e-mail and thanks everybody else who congradulated the winners.

I wonder what our next film disscussion will be.  I may have to lobby to the mods on having it be GBU... ;D

   Its a legit request, since the movie is not quite the same with the extra footage.  I honestly haven't watched my copy yet; pretty soon though when I get a good 3 hour uninterrupted stretch I'll check it out.

Well I received my DVD yesterday (thanks again Cal) -

and only had time to skim thru parts of it so far. I really wanted to check out some of the added scenes with overdubs by Clint and Wallach. The Van Cleef impersonator isn't bad at all. From what I got to see so far, Eastwood did really good, however there's one scene I encountered where I can almost swear it's not his voice. It's the (added) scene right after they depart the monastery (?) where Tuco encountered his priest brother. Eastwood and Wallach are riding atop a wagon and conversing. The few short lines from Eastwood's character sounds NOTHING like him - young or old. I'm willing to bet they had someone else dub that scene, for whatever reason. If there are more scenes like that I'm yet to see them when I get more time.

It was mentioned they chose not to use the extra 2-3 minutes of the original beating & torture scene recently found, of Tuco inside the POW camp because of very bad quality of the print. However I didn't think it was that bad at all - assuming it was the stock, untouched print, and disagree it would have thrown off the viewers had they added it in. It seems with today's technology, they could have fixed it up no problem. Anyone have a viewpoint on this?

But great DVD overall - the extras are terrific.

Yesterday I also viewed some extra's and new scenes from my copy of GBU SE.  I also watched the new scene with clint and eli on the wagon but I didn't notice clint's voice sounding different from the other added scenes.

I expected the new sound effects to be a lot worse after all the reviews I read but I find them acceptable. I will surely keep my old GBU disc for the original english mono.

It's indeed a pity that they did not include the extended beating scene, the print damage wasn't so horrible as they said in the documentary. If they had added this scene we would have had the full Rome premiere cut.

Overall it is indeed a great DVD :)

Eli Wallach was interviewed in connection with this release on NPR last Saturday. For those who missed it, it's archived on their site ... even better, there's a "Web Extra" extended version, a full half hour ... which I've just finished listening to.

http://www.npr.org/features/feature.php?wfId=1905485

Eli is 88 now, and he sounds great. He re-told a number of anecdotes I heard when he was interviewed in Silver Spring last year, but they're good stories and he tells 'em well. One detail I don't recall hearing before is that he was the one who insisted there be no onscreen credit and no publicity about his cameo in Mystic River, because ... well, let him tell it ...

Quote
... He called me and asked me if I'd play a small role in it. I said how many weeks, he said one day. I said, "Oh, Clint." He says, "Come on, it's a reunion." So I went up to Boston, I shot it in one day. I said "On one condition: There's no credit for me in it. I don't want my name on the screen, I don't want it in any advertising. I want to surprise people."

He also said he has no thoughts of retiring ... Retirement is "a word that never comes out of me, because I don't want to retire, I want to keep going till ... I hope there's a theater somewhere else where I can go after I die"! 8)

Enjoy!

D'Amb, the next film discussion is on Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, a wonderful film! And after that, I nominate Tightrope ;) But I would be just as happy with GBU...I already made some notes on it when I watched the documentaries on the DVD a few weeks ago...I miss not writing about films anymore so I'm looking forward to the next film discussion as a kind of project for me to work on (sounds a bit nerdy but I always did like writing essays).

Oh man, I feel so dumb...I don't recall Eli's cameo in Mystic River at all   ??? Anyone care to refresh my memory? I don't know if I'll be buying the DVD because I don't want a (practically) vanilla DVD version...us Region 2 people demand the works!  >:( Why do we always get the sh*t end of the stick...
