Title Best
Death Rides a Horse (Da Uomo a Uomo)R4
    This film has been released on DVD in Region 1 and Region 2, and was previously released in Region 4. According to reviews, the Region 1 (released 1 December 1999)  is an abysmal full frame pan and scan transfer with rotten audio. I could find no reviews of the previous Region 4 release, but it was apparently 4x3, and perhaps the same transfer as the Region 1. As far as extras go, the Region 1 includes a biography of Lee Van Cleef, an interactive menu, a trivia quiz, and a critic's review.

    The Region 2 (released 15 August 2005) is probably the same as the new local release. It has the same running time, a single layer 16x9 transfer in a 2.35:1 ratio and Dolby Digital Mono audio. Descriptions of the menu and anti-piracy clip match what is on our disc. When released the Region 4 will be relatively cheap, so the local disc wins this contest.
