Product Description

...Be Quick Or Be Dead!

After their powerful father is brutally murdered, the Saxon Brothers hire a group of bounty hunters to bring suspected killer Philipp Wermeer to justice. But when grizzled Sheriff Clayton saves the fugitive Philipp's life, the two set out to confront the Saxons and reveal the shocking truth about who really killed The Patriarch.

The legendary Lee Van Cleef (FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK) stars in this classic 'Spaghetti Western' stylishly directed by Giancarlo Santi from a clever screenplay written by Ernesto Gastaldi (TORSO, CASE OF THE BLOODY IRIS). Also known as THE BIG SHOWDOWN and STORM RIDER, GRAND DUEL has been newly transferred in stunning High Definition from the original camera negative and fully restored for this release!

EXTRAS:
Audio Commentary with Journalists C. Courtney Joyner and Henry Parke
Theatrical Trailer
Spaghetti Western Trailer Reel

Classic 'Spaghetti Western' now available on an officially-licensed DVD with fully restored audio and video!

Please disregard the negative reviews about the picture quality placed prior to May 2013 as it does not pertain to this particular release by BU. The Blue Underground edition is remastered from the original film negatives and also features a commentary. The film itself is a slightly above average Italian Western released at a time in the early seventies when the genre was succumbing to parody. It doesn't quite reach the heights of films like 'For A Few Dollars More' or 'The Big Gundown' but it is a decent enough entry in the genre itself. Recommended to fans of Lee Van Cleef and Spaghetti Westerns.

Most of these reviews pertain to illegal bootlegs of GRAND DUEL (aka THE BIG SHOWDOWN). This new Blue Underground DVD is officially licensed, and has been fully restored and remastered from the original negative. It is presented fully uncut, in the original widescreen 2.35:1 aspect ratio. As far as Extras, the DVD includes a very informative Audio Commentary with Journalists C. Courtney Joyner and Henry Parke, as well as the Theatrical Trailer and a Spaghetti Western Trailer Reel. GRAND DUEL has never looked or sounded better!

Fans of spaghetti Westerns should be very happy GRAND DUEL has been officialy licenced and re-mastered by BLUE UNDERGROUND. BU takes great pride in their releases and gives every one of them the royal treatment. This DVD is the Real Deal.

The director of this film, Giancarlo Santi, was an assistant director on both The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West, so he obviously knows what it takes to make a good Spaghetti Western. When he ventured out on his own he took For a Few Dollars More and Good, Bad, Ugly co-star Lee Van Cleef with him. While it isn't on the level with Leone (but really what is?) the result is a solid 90 minute Spaghetti Western with an unforgettable score (which you may recognize from Kill Bill vol 1). If you are a fan of the sub-genre definitely check this one out, to me the music alone makes the viewing worth it.

A decent spaghetti western by Giancarlo Santi, a longtime collaborator of Sergio Leone. It is short, about 90 minutes. So a good introductory movie to the genre if you are yet into it. Younger generations will recall the music theme from 'Kill Bill, Vol. 1', composed by Luis Bacalov.

I'm a spaghetti western and Lee van Cleef fan but honestly the only good thing about this movie is the song by Luis Bacalov. The quality of the DVD transfer though is excellent.

Right off the bat, I'm going to say this is the best version of this film available. If you want to see The Grand Duel, get this version. Blue Underground did a beautiful job restoring the print to fully uncut status. That being said, they could have done a better job with the extras. All that's offered is a bunch of trailers for other BU releases and a couple commentaries. This release is about on par with some of their early releases, like Violent City. Maybe I'm just spoiled with their special editions of Django, Zombie, and Suspiria. Either way, even with the dissapointing special features, this still gets 4 stars for being a beautiful restoration!

An outstanding Italian Western, but one that takes time to understand, and that therefore one must be patient with. Yet most Italian Westerns are like this, so there should be no surprise. Therefore, once properly viewed and comprehended, the "Grand Duel" can be seen as a classic Italian Western, and representative of the genre. It features a mysterious beginning, heroes with good and bad moral qualities, innocence, and the importance and sanctity of death. The film is right there with the other great films of its kind.

Nevertheless, because "Grand Duel" has a typically difficult plot, and that one must give it time and probably multiple viewings, it is not a beginners' Italian Western.. And it is absolutely critical to watch on widescreen and unedited. A must for fans of the genre.

If you are a beginner, there is no better start than Sergio Leone's "Fistful of Dollars"... For a two pack here, with "Grand Duel", I might recommend Lee Van Cleef in "Death Rides a Horse", or try the film he did with Sergio Sollima: "The Big Gundown". Van Cleef was at his finest in the mid 60's to early 1970's, and indeed plays an iconic western character even more so than Clint Eastwood himself.
