Armstrong, and L.Q. Jones. This two-disc set includes the original theatrical release of the film, plus the 2005 extended version.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack on the extended cut, and a DTS-HD MA 1.0 soundtrack on the theatrical cut. Supplements will include: Isolated Score Track - Christopher Caliendo; Audio Commentary with Film Historians Nick Redman, Paul Seydor, Garner Simmons, and David Weddle; 2005 Re-Release Trailer; Isolated Score Track - Daniele Amfitheatriof; Silent Extended Outtakes; Trailer Artwork Outtakes; Exhibitor Promo Reel Excerpt; Extended Scene: "Major Dundee and Teresa"; Incomplete Deleted Scene: "Knife Fight"; and Original Theatrical Trailer.
