We will release Vittorio Salerno's extraordinary crime-thriller-drama NO, IL CASO E FELICEMENTE RISOLTO (NO, THE CASE IS HAPPILY RESOLVED) from 1973 on Blu-ray and DVD! We'll present the film in Salerno's favored director's cut version which will feature the originally intended ending of which we could even localize the negative. This will be the No. 17 in the Italian Genre Cinema Collection.


Yet again, you've pulled out the wild card, great news  ;)

This is fantastic news - I had the pleasure of viewing the original version on the big screen last year and the print was in great shape.

Bizarrely enough, I was talking to some friends the other day about this very film (and wondering what it would take to get it released). There's an 'okay' release in Italy on DVD but it's the producer's cut with the dumb ending tacked on. I honestly believe the more open-ended finale of the director's cut makes it a very different film - closer to something like 'The Big Silence'.

I don't suppose they've got 'Fango Bollente' lined up as well? (The Cineteca also has a great looking 35mm print of the uncut version)

i've never heard of the film before, and turning to IMDB is an instinct i find hard to break - despite the vast majority of more obscure films being poorly covered (or understood) and often giving the impression runtimes might not be accurate if they date from decades gone by, when films were too invariably cut or altered. anyone else wish labels announcing films would do a little more to flesh out their choices - trailers never go amiss, but a good supporting article, perhaps based upon personal knowledge or research done whilst preparing the release, would help those of us struggling to see why it's of interest to decide if it's a nice surprise or just something to bypass?!

Now this has got me really excited, since I saw the cheap Italian release. Now all I need is The Last Desperate hours released in my lifetime. Nice work  ::).

We visited the great Vittorio Salerno for an interview about NO, IL CASO E FELICEMENTE RISOLTO:

He could have tidied his shelves up! Unless he is going for a certain "shabby chic" designer look :-\

Had the same thought when we interviewed him last year...

When I played back the footage it all looked a bit odd, with the shelves a total mess.

Still, nice to see he wore a jumper this time, we got his safari waistcoat complete with '1 button' done up at the top.  ::)

He's a great guy though - bizarrely, he never seemed 'that' bothered by the tacked-on ending to 'No, Il Caso...' - the only person he said was remotely upset about it was Riccardo Cucciolla who was livid when he found out. In his defense, he let the producer have his way because it was his first feature film.

Really looking forward to this - Is there a rough ETA on the release date?

No date set yet.

But Salerno was very happy when we approached him about doing a director's cut saying that he hates the producer's ending.

Haven't seen it, so I'm really looking forward to this release. Will you include the producers ending be included in the extras?
