    Whats this italian directors cut? Difference between that and the regular cut?

    • The Quentin Tarantino Archives

      I think it is just a slight difference. I will try to dig up the info…

  • Gritzen

    I am very curious to the difference in the cuts on this too. The explosive sidc had to switch between English and Italian audio for the full cut. Do these 3 additional scenes make up that difference for it to be fully in English and that would mean Grindhouse found English audio for these scenes which I was under the impression never existed in the first place.

    • The Quentin Tarantino Archives

      naw, the full italian cut does have pieces without english audio, i dont think grindhouse unearthed that, i think those were never properly dubbed. same with the German dub

  • Chuck Afterburner

    The only cuts I really remember from this movie were mostly at the party scene at the beginning, just randomly in parts of dialogue that seem weird spots for a cut.

    • The Quentin Tarantino Archives

      there are some more. at the party, those cuts made the movie less political… and more shallow I think

    • Tom Betts

      There’s several missing scenes such as of Lee in Camardiel’s office after the killing of the three outlaws, a longer party scene, the Father Smith & Wesson scene, a longer cane field scene.

  • Sartana Sartana

    How does this compare for completeness with fan restorations like the one from Franco Cleef?
