I can't remember. I think it is the original because the music comes in over it doesn't it?
I too love those titles

It's well worth picking up, think I paid 1.99 for mine and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of it.
Id be fasinated to know were you got it for £1.99?

Ive been sculking around budget dvd racks in The Works* & Tesco's for a while now, looking for this one.

*Who by the way have a rather fine selection of £1.50 crap HK Ninja movies at the moment.

Yeah I got it recently.
Good transfer, nice booklet inside

My only complaint is I wasn't able to skip around the disc in PowerDVD, seems ok in my DVD player though.

It's just some filmographies, but I liked it. The packaging is like a mini-hardback book.

Just got round to watching the extras on Caboblanco. There's a really interesting behind the scenes featurette. Get to see J. Lee and Chuck working together. Nice little interview with Bronson

Despite Sony's own website saying their R1 of The Valachi Papers was going to be foolscreen, DVD Talk's review confirms that it is in fact anamorphic 1.85:1. Good news.

Just watched the UK R2 Red Sun DVD and would like to urge any fans that haven't got it yet to get it. It's definately an unmatted 4:3 transfer not P&S.

Bronson, Mifune and Delon three legends plus Ursula Andress' tits!

Her introduction shot when she runs from the bed to the door was enought for me. cue slow frame mode, found my self making hidious Sid James noises.

P.S. Unfortunatly my DVD-rom dosn't like the Cinema Club disc. Wanted to make a little animation gif of 'Call it a draw' scene. Bronson trying to jump Mifune with a stick. comedy magic.

Thanks for that. Haven't seen this, but at £4.99 in the Play sale, I'm giving it a try.

As per the Upcoming thread, Play.com lists two Bronson titles for release in R2 this June Someone Behind The Door (aka: Two Minds for Murder) and The Valachi Papers (aka Cosa Nostra).

I own Mr. Majestyk, The Mechanic, Death Wish, Death Wish 2, Dirty Dozen, Magnificent Seven, Great Escape, Vera Cruz and Once upon a Time in the West and Chato's Land. Great actor, especially as Paul Kersey. You can have a laugh watching Great Escape, what a ridiculous sounding accent.
In my youngster time, I've seen a lot of his 80's stuff, but his worst must be Assasination. Really poor made.
Kinjite and Murphy's Law must be the bloodiest and toughest movies.

Death Wish 3, 4 and 5 were released on R2 in Germany last year by MGM. All anamorphic releases with loads of subtitles.
Does anyone know if 3 and 4 are really better then the R1 4:3 discs.
Since I can't find the German dvd's cheap.

The Evil That Men Do is pretty strong stuff as well.

Coburn's Australian accent is worse. Coburn was a great actor, but some people just shouldn't attempt accents.

The problem with Assassination is the hackneyed screenplay. That, and a lead actress (Ireland) who just isn't up to snuff.

Ten to Midnight is tough to beat in the unpleasantness sweepstakes. It is, however, quite well-made and cannily scripted.
