    I definitely NEED this! I almost bought the now OOP and expensive Sollima boxset. No need for that now :D

    Gets the highest rating (of the three Sollima westerns) @ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061636/

    According to a poster over at the Mobius Forum "Sad to relate that the BBFC website records 93m34s for the new Eureka release. As this is blu ray I assume its at 24fps and this is therefore probably the same cut print previously released on VHS."

    Looks like this release will be cut. :(

    Well, not far away now apparently. Release date AFAIK is now June 20th for the DVD. No date for the BD yet.
    There were some issues in the past about this one if memory serves right.
    Hopefully the DVD will be great.

    It's a great film and if you haven't bought it yet, you might consider this one:

    2 discs and although it's not very obvious, I think I know what's on the second disc
    I don't need the double dip. The UK DVD is great. But this new DVD seems like a great deal as well.

    Earlier in the week I watched the disc Crystal Plumage recommended a couple posts back. Amazing! I'd probably rank it third after the first two DOLLARS films (also starring Gian Maria Volonte). Had I been watching FACE TO FACE since I was a kid the nostalgia factor might allow to claim its the best western I've seen.

    Due to the reputation and scarcity of FACE TO FACE I was waiting for a blu-ray. I do recommend the Eplosive Media disc. The PQ and sound well more than adequate. Fine detail is often very noticeable. If I had a complaint, the colors could be a bit more vibrant.
