Swiss label Explosive Media has informed us that it plans to bring to Blu-ray two classic Italian spaghetti westerns: Giulio Petroni's Death Rides a Horse (1967), starring Lee Van Cleef, John Phillip Law, and Mario Brega, and Gianfranco Parolini's Sabata (1969), starring Lee Van Cleef, William Berger, and Ignazio Spalla.
The upcoming releases will have newly produced special features, bonus DVDs, and illustrated booklets. Both will be available for purchase in Switzerland and Germany later this year.
I'm waiting for Paramount to release the A.C. Lyles-R.G. Springsteen westerns!
If they come at all, they're likely to come from Paramount's licensee, Olive Films. But apparently, Olive feels that John Wayne's Republic westerns from the 1930s have more market potential, since those are the westerns getting the Blu-ray releases.
