Never seen this film, just got a nice straight from VHS DVD-R a few weeks ago and thought I'd give it watch soon.

Anyone seen it and care to comment, no spoilers though please!

Possibly the only film I know of that features Maurizio Merli without a moustache...

Great film, the best version that i know of is a Japanese tape which is widescreen (not sure if it's the right ratio though)

Merli is also tashless in "Seagulls fly low" :-\

I didn't know that! I've got a copy of 'Seagulls Fly Low', an incentive to dig it out and watch it I think!

Seems that in january Poliziotto Sprint will be on RAISAT channel after unless 20 years from the last time on italian tv

I absolutely love this movie  8), in italy there is only a bad fullscreen master on CVC VHS, I hope that I can see it in widescreen for the first time...

If it not widescreen seek out the Japanese vhs, it's the best print i've ever seen of the film.

Usually RAISAT channel has good and correct master and a better definition... I hope also this time

in the early 80's in Italy a large number of local tv-channel started to broadcast, there were no law or order for them, so they used to show pirate copies of movies without paying any royalty for them

in my district one of these local tv-channel had only a few movies that broadcasted in loop

and one of these movies was Poliziotto sprint, during a summer each afternoon you could see Poliziotto sprint and each afternoon I saw Poliziotto sprint, perhaps for 30 times  :D

ok, I was child... but in my district everyone knows Marco Palma & Poliziotto sprint...

That Grindhouse set sounds kind of interesting. I've never even heard of the first set. Is it any good? Well, I'm guessing it's all VHS sourced but is it at least watchable? If it is, I just might pick it up.

The quality varies with each movie, but none of them is exactly "good."  But the ones I looked at were mostly watchable, I guess you could say..

Ok, thanks. I'll probably give it a try if I can find it cheap then.

I've got VHS of most of these anyway and 9 times out of 10 they are better than these U.S. budget dvd's.

I'll wait till i hear full reports.

I enjoyed this a lot, although for the first half hour Maurizio Merli's character was such a whiny little bitch I wish he'd died in the car crash  :-\
Watching Merli without his tache is like watching 70's porn without the hairy beavers.  :-\
