  1. Since the DVD is not in the film's OAR there were a lot of complaints and Eyecatcher said there would be a proper version to come (with free replacement for those who bought their first release). I'll wait for the proper release if there'll ever be one.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up Ephedrino. This is a rare title that I have never seen and I tried to find an American source to no avail. So, like you, I'll wait to see if a proper version is released before trying to order a copy.

  3. Thanks for the info, Ephedrino! Does Eyecather have an official site? I'd like to know where to ask for a replacement once it's released. There's no info on DVD case and I can't find anything with Google either.

  4. They introduced one a short while ago at but it's down again. Generally, a rather esoteric company. I'll let Tom know as soon as there's news on one of the German insider boards.

  5. I saw this film on TV 30 years ago and thought it was pretty good. Klaus Kinski drives his horse like a Ferrari. The score is available as part of a 3-score CD. Excellent music. English title: Last Ride to Santa Cruz.
