1.0 out of 5 stars Solo per Italiani !, 17 April 2011
It's a shame this movie, very popular in Italy, shown there every year on TV, is not available with any kind of subtitles (though the product description mentioned italian subtitles, which was a mistake).
The sequel, Brancaleone alle crociate, had at least italian subtitles ; and the good of it was that, the language spoken being some kind of medieval italian, mixed with latin and some italian dialects, you could read something different of what you were hearing. And the characters do talk a lot ! If you miss the language dimension, you miss three quarters of the movie. For this one, no subtitles at all was too big a frustration. I've sent back the DVD and get a refund.
I'm still waiting for a new edition with subtitles. The rating concerns only this DVD edition, I can't rate the movie itself. The sequel, with the same main actors, same director, etc., is worth five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three features and a lot of extras, 5 Jun 2010
I was wondering about the total timing announced of 431 minutes in 3 DVD. Well, there was no mistake : the box set includes a lot of extras, variously related to the feature :
DVD 1 includes a short of 1963, The triumph of Lester Snapwell, one of the last Buster appearances, 22 minutes ; While they love cavemen, a 1921 cartoon, related only by the thema ; plus, one excerpt of Griffith's Intolerance.
DVD 2 : excerpts of the B.Keaton show and Candid camera featuring B.K. ; Run, girl, run, 1928 short film, 20 minutes, only related by the thema of sport ; Ball Park, 1929 cartoon, d ; Sport Chumpions, 7 minutes 1941 cartoon, d.
DVD 3 : Excerpt from Backstage, a 1919 short featuring BK and Fatty Arbuckle ; excerpt from One week, 1920 short with the same ; documentaries about Mississipi and the flood of 1927.
