It's OOP anyway. ONE SILVER DOLLAR (I think this one had the subs) and FORT YUMA GOLD (no english track or subs) were in there as well.
ONE SILVER DOLLAR was on one of the earlier boxes and definately has English on it.

the Giuliano Gemma Box set has ARIZONA COLT, FORT YUMA GOLD and BEN AND CHARLIE in it but as you said No English whatsoever.

This annoyed me because at first if the film had no English they still put English subs on some of them, then they started releasing box sets of 3 instead of 4 with one film in English and the others with Italian, French (or whatever the print was in) with japanese subs only. what an annoyance.

I have all the boxes apart from that later Gemma one and the Trinity box

Yeah, that later Gemma box has all titles with english dubs on them. They have a War Boxset with a Gemma war film I want to see called CORBARI.

For those interested check out this review for CEMETERY WITHOUT CROSSES. The most interesting bit is the section on the extras. Seems Leone directed a scene in this movie as well...I guess those from the other board will now say this is a Leone movie as well...!

CORBARI is great, it's about Gemma leading a gang of partisans.

Seconded and it has quite an ending too.

Is Sergeant Klems in the same vein as Corbari?
Was reading about it the other day and it sounds quite interesting.

This reminds me to ask Thomas Weisser on the "No pity for Tom" thread why he claimed in his book that Leone had a cameo as the barman. ???

I watched this for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed it. The pacing seems more measured than slow, with lots of tense silences and things left unsaid. I'd agree that the male lead doesn't really seem to fit the film, but other than that it's a big thumbs-up from me. A gripper.

I picked up the Anolis Ltd. edition Woodbox - through Tony at Exploited - and watched this last night for the first time and really, really enjoyed it. 

The B&W cinematography that opens and closes the film, The Rope And The Colt (sung by the always excellent Scott Walker  ;) ), the excellent guitar & horn driven score with chorus and solo female backing, the close-ups of characters against deep azure skies gives the film an unreal studio bound feel, as if the they're posing - almost statuesque like mythic greek gods - before an artificial backdrop or a bluescreen, the surreal sequence at the Roger's dinner table, reminiscent of both Sam Fuller's FORTY GUNS and Tony Richardson's TOM JONES, with the tension building and abruptly ending up in a big Dadaesque joke, and the film's climax, operatic and tragic, all mark this as an atypical, but worthy Spaghetti Western.  :-X

If you like DJANGO KILL, this will probably be right up your alley.  :-\

Anolis' Woodbox is a beaut.  ::)  The transfer itself is anamoprhic, gorgeous at times and subpar occasionally, due to the different elements used in putting together the DVD.  The English audio comes through loud and clear, and there are also options for the original French, German, and Italian with optional German subs.  Haven't had a chance to watch the documentary yet, in French with English or German subs, but am looking forward to it.

I have the SPO disc - haven't watched it in a long time, but don't remember being blown away.  Really loved the cinematography though.  This is one I need to revisit very soon, as I keep reading great things. 
I wished the lead actor would've been played by Anthony Steffen...he could've pulled off the lead role much better.

I think the fact that Hossein was also the director, and that he and Michele Mercier had also acted together in the Angélique series of films created a comfort zone for them to act together, but someone else, like Steffen, would have been interesting.   

I think Hossein is OK in the role.

I love the sequence where Hossein and Mercier share a long, silent exchange - it really drives home the past these two have and the intensity of his feelings for her. Outstanding film, easily as good as THE GREAT SILENCE imo, a film it has certain similarities with. I rate this one high enough to own the SPO disc and the Anolis box...

'A Rope, A Colt' is such a fantastic song! I really wish this soundtrack would come out.

That is a great exchange between Hossein and Mercier.

You may already be aware of this, but the last three songs on the Andre Hossein compilation below, from Universal Music France, include three cuts from the film, including Scott Walker singing A Rope, A Colt.

The whole score on a CD would be great.  :-X

I did find that compilation a while back when I was looking for the score, but I`d forgotten it, thanks. I may just pick that up, but I keep hoping the whole score will get released.

I didn`t go back through this thread and see if it`s already been mentioned, but the Anolis disc supposedly has 17 easter eggs. I never found all of them - haven`t looked lately - but I did find quite a few. There`s some fun stuff on there.
