    There seems to be a lot of different versions of this film. I saw this about 10 years ago in 35mm in Helsinki, with Castellari sitting almost next to me (or was that The Bronx Warriors screening, I forgot). I remember the great abrupt ending: SPOILER WARNING the film ended exactly when Nero got shot and had a brief flashback of his life. Curtains closed. I later found a version on YouTube which continued a few more seconds, showing that he had just imagined that and wasn't dead after all. I don't know which one is correct, but the 35mm ending was so abrupt (but absolutely great) that I even wondered if Castellari had told them to remove a few seconds from the print (IF they were there). He did not mention anything about it at the screening, though.

              Studio Canal's UK releases/reissues have generally been pretty solid over the past few years, so it would seem absolutely ridiculous for them to put out a sought-after movie with a huge chunk missing, but.... that's what they did in France, so my expectations for this one are not high.

              If the German release is English-friendly, it could be a good alternative.....?

                  I'm hoping someone will release this with English subs for the Italian audio.

                    From Blue Underground's FB page:

                    "Coming Soon to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD for the first time ever in America! World Premiere of brand-new 2024 Dolby Vision HDR 4K restoration of the complete uncensored version from the Original Camera Negative!

                    (NOTE: The last reel of the OCN has mysteriously disappeared, so the last 10 minutes of the film were restored from the best available 35mm print. It still looks pretty good!)"
