I caught this conversion late, but I know all about the PAL NTSC thing.
All you need is a code free DVD player. that convers the signal from PAL to NTSC for the TV (which in the US will be looking for the NTSC signal).
so if you want the German verison all you need to do is get a codefree dvd player.(make sure it plays all regions , and they mention PAL to NTSC conversion. ;)
by the way codefree players are perfectly legal. and would everyone please buy the Rawhide season 1 DVD .

Already got 'em in the old edition.

Think I'll wait for HD-DVD now.

Or maybe I'll get impatient and buy 'em :-\.

Hi Snake,

That is tough having to wait that long.
Nothing new here but repeating that they got caught up in the MGM/UA, Sony sell off and for some reason (which I will never understand) they have sat on the shelf.

You can pick up the special editions here now for just over £5. Have you thought any more about getting multi system.

The features look cool. I'm glad they're including the Network Prologue for A Fistful of Dollars. I'm anxious to see what the store prices will be before I decide to buy them. Actually, the box set sounds cool too even though I already have the special edition of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (not to mention the original Man with No Name box set). Duck, You Sucker is a pretty good movie, too.

I've been waiting two whole years for these special DVDs. I'm really happy to see that they at least have a release date now.

Thanks for posting the news, you guys are the best!

Yay! Double yay! Now with the SE of these gems coming out in about a month or so, comes a small dilemma..what should I do with the old dvds? I feel so guilty throwing them out? Does anyone have any ideas? Thanx!

Ok, besides the Sergio Leone Anthology set, has there already been some discussion about A Fistful of Dollars (2-Disc Collector's Edition)?
Amazon says it will be releasing on June 5th, 2007:o

I'm a little skeptical yet about buying another copy of the movie, unless there are some good special features about it that I don't already have, then I won't hesitate and pre-order it now.   O0
Basically, I'm looking to see if anyone has the list of special features that would be on this particular edition.   ^-^

Ok, I might have just answered my own question.  I think this one must just be the individually priced one of the 4-movie anthology.  It makes sense now that I've re-read Brendan's post with all those details from dvdtimes.com.   :D   O0

Ok, I just ordered my copies of FFOD & FFDM (SE) and paid extra of course to make sure I get them this Tuesday, on my door, the released date. Now, why do I feel like a little kid on Christmas night???? (lol)
I know we've all been waiting for these for a long long time and that time is now here (day after tomorrow).
I'll keep my old copies for back up emergencies. But when it comes to the MWNN trilogy, I think Ive seen them too many times to count since I was a little boy awe-struck by Clint, Leone & morricone and it may sound melodramatic and cliche but my life was changed forever, from then on!

After all the waiting, I was finally able to pick up the 2-disc set of Fistful of Dollars today! This was actually the first time I ever saw the movie in widescreen and this really made the film that much better for me. The picture quality is excellent. I know that the R2 special edition versions had a constant blue tinge to it but the R1 version doesn't seem to have that problem. Judging from the screenshots I've seen on these boards, the R1 version looks more like the German set which was released last year. The R1 versions also feature 5.1 surround sound but now you have the option to switch it to the original mono recording so I was very happy about (since I wasn't able to do that with my 2-disc TGTBTU set I bought 2 years ago).

I haven't watched the special features yet but I'm very pleased the audio and picture quality in the movie. It's too bad I wasn't able to find a copy of FAFDM though.

Snake,
If you have a FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT (FYE) store nearby, go check it out. I bought AFOD there and they have both. I ordered FAFDM from Best Buy because I have a store credit with them. Good luck!

I remember I bought The Good, the Bad and the Ugly special edition DVD from FYE for only $10 after a rebate. I haven't been by there recently to see if they have a similar deal with any of these new releases.
