Blu-Ray News #124: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1967).

Directed by Sergio Leone
Starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, Eli Wallach

Like a lotta folks, The Good The Bad And The Ugly is one of my favorite movies. I could easily sit down and watch it every day. But I couldn’t stand that restoration from 2004. While it looked terrific, the reworked surround sound drove me nuts. Unfortunately, that was the version that made its way to Blu-Ray — so I’ve clung to the old MGM pre-2004 DVD.

Sergio Leone directing one of the greatest scenes in cinema history.

I was overjoyed to learn that for the picture’s 50th anniversary, the original version would be given the deluxe 4K treatment — in the original mono! The set from Kino Lorber also gives you the extended version, also in mono. A slew of extra’s, many carried over from the previous editions, will be included. I don’t care how many times you bought this in the past, this is essential. Coming this summer.
