A great movie but not the definitive DVD release.,
This review is from: Ulzana's Raid [DVD] (DVD)
One of the best films of the 1970s, ULZANA'S RAID works on many levels - western drama, character study, Vietnam allegory. Unfortunately, this UK DVD release has been heavily cut - and re-edited - to remove all shots of horses being trip-wired. According to the BBFC, this technique falls foul of the 1937 Cinematograph Act, which forbids the ill-treatment of animals during film-making. For the record, many stunt co-ordinators claim the technique can be used safely. Cuts aside, this is the American version of the film, supervised by director Robert Aldrich, rather than the overseas version prepared by Burt Lancaster.

Fully agree with this review. Very disappointed. A classic film ruined by these needless cuts which do detract from the story.
