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!

The movie itself (plot, acting, etc.) is good - Lee van Cleef at his usual excellence. But the "quality" of the VHS cassette is below any acceptable standard. On the video side, there are scratches and other blemishes throughout the length of the movie. On the audio side, the sound track is so bad that over half of the dialogue is unintelligble - just a lot of cackle, crackle, and noise. The poor quality of the VHS destroys any enjoyment one would otherwise get from a good western.

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.

It starts out very promising, fizzles just a bit, but is overall one of the better spaghetti westerns. Not knowing anything about the history of how it was made, it seems to me the budget began to shrink taking the stunts with it. Still there are some well shot action sequences, interesting villians, and a bit of a For a Few Dollars More feel to this one, which is ironic because for a Few Dollars More, this movie might have been almost a great knock off of Leone.

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.

This movie, "The Grand Duel," is not a new title on the original, "The Big Gundown." I watched "The Big Gundown," during the western channels Lee Van Clef month a few weeks ago, and although they are both spaghetti westerns they are not the same movie. "The Big Gundown" is MUCH MUCH better but doesn't appear to be on video yet.
