A fandub of this release using an Italian TV print has just been uploaded to Tracker 3 - looks promising!

Doesn't look too bad, do you know if it's uncut Magnus?

I think it looks a bit better than the UK precert.

I've downloaded the AVI of 'Napoli Spara" and converted it to DVD. 16:9 enhanced, OAR and seems to be fully uncut.

The two main scenes that were missing from the German DVD are intact in this print, namely the machine gunning of one of the train robbers by his fellow gang member and the castration in the prison.





I was thinking of editing the cut footage back into the German DVD but I'm in two minds now as to whether it's worth the effort as this new version is in pretty good shape.

Meaning the Koch disc? Be forewarned, Jonny: it's the wrong ratio. It's 16x9 all right, but it's like a 4x3 image partially matted down by letterboxing. I compared the Koch disc to my Video Search of Miami dvd-r, and the Koch disc is missing some image area.

In fact, there's a lot of ratio screwiness where this title is concerned. That VSOM disc has one shot -- an explosion, I think -- that plays full screen, whereas the rest of the movie is presented 16x9. Must've got that shot from a different source...

Good luck, though, and keep up the good work with the fan dubs and all. It sounds as if you're doing a lot for Eurocrime fandom...

The German DVD has been colour graded much better than the Italian TV master.

Okay, just so guys don't think my contention about wrong ratios on the German disc is the raving of a madman, check out how many of Silva's fingers are showing in these two frame caps. These are from the exact same moment in the film.
