Reviews Wanted: For A Few Dollars More

I've been considering getting "For A Few Dollars More" on DVD but all the customer feedback at Amazon.com is negative, stating that the audio alignment to the video is off-sync and unwatchable. Does anybody own or have seen this DVD, and is it worth getting? It's a great film , but if the transfer is terrible I'd rather not bother.

This movie is worth the ten bucks you would have spend to get it. The transfer is not bad considering the film's age. Also, the audio is not the best, but it surely doesn't make the film unwatchable.

Thanks for the Previewed DVD attachment. The critic thinks the print's disappointing. I guess I'll wait until an upgraded transfer gets made.

A lot of people also dont understand that the film was recorded without sound, and everyones lines were dubbed in later, because the film was being sold in different markets. and made with an international cast speaking in different languages. Dont know if that is what the Amazon reviews were talking about. I thought it looked and sounded fine, not a perfect transfer, but good enough and budget priced.

Though non-anamorphic, the LBX transfer is more than serviceable and actually looks pretty good. Unless there's an anouncement for a new SE coming soon, the $10 price tag is more than worth it.

This is kind of a coincidence because last week i just bought the Dollars trilogy in reverse order,on consecutive days. for a few dollars more is the weakest of the trilogy but it still kicks ***.
