Now Is The Time To Buy The Original Django On Blu-Ray

Those of you capable of playing region A Blu-ray discs could do an awful lot worse than Blue Underground’s release of the original Django. The transfer is very good indeed – as good as the original camera negative would allow. Looks mighty fine.

Right now, Amazon have it priced at $12.49, down from the RRP of $29.98.

For extra encouragement, I should tell you there’s a vintage 30-odd minute documentary on the disc featuring Django‘s director Sergio Corbucci and his fellow Spaghetti Western chefs  Enzo G. Castellari and Sergio Sollima.

Here’s a vintage trailer for the film. It doesn’t really do it justice.

Incidentally, Argent films have a Region B release of Django coming to Blu-ray in a couple of weeks. Not having seen it I can’t comment on how it will compare to Blue Underground’s disc.
