FINALLY this one is getting a proper special edition release by the looks of things. Good for Odeon for treating this one right. The last Hen's Tooth DVD was a nice upgrade over their horrible first issue, but still left room for improvement. Check out the specs for the BD:

Passion & Poetry - Sam Peckinpah's War: A documentary by Mike Siegel featuring James Coburn, Senta Berger, David Warner, Vadim Glowna, Roger Fritz, Katy Haber & Sam Peckinpah.
Five featurettes with 1976 on set audio interviews:
- Sam Peckinpah
- James Coburn
- James Mason

Vadim & Sam - Son & Dad Featurette

Those screen caps look really nice.
