Still can’t believe this hasn’t been released in R1 yet. MGM owns the rights and it stars Burt frickin’ Reynolds, for god’s sake!
Our resident, Sylvia, does own a DVD copy of it and posted the climax of the movie on youtube (Don’t click if you want to be spoiled)
All I’ve got is the TCM-taped version on VHS. And for all you VHS lovers out there, the VHS version actually has a slightly better opening than the widescreen,TCM version I have. And it’s all got to do with Morricone’s music. In the fullscreen VHS version, there’s more additional chants and roars before the title screen appears. Believe me, it’s much cooler when/if you see it.
