Dear videolibbers,

there is a legitimate edition of El Topo, not from rarevideo.com but
from rarovideo.com - one letter makes the difference!
http://www.rarovideo.com/schede/eltopo_dvd.htm
You can get it from this first class Italian mail order shop as a DVD in
Spanish with English subtitles and region code 0, but PAL!
It's the 119 minute version (125 min. originally).

If you want the complete uncensored version
http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0067866/alternateversions
you can get it from Japan
http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=OPSD-S134
This edition is in Spanish with no English subtitles and is region coded
2, but NTSC!

With kind regards

The British video from Nouveaux Pictures is out of print.
