The foreign versions described below contain The Bordello Scene which was cut from U.S. releases.
The cover of the VHS Japanese version.
Now available on DVD - but THERE'S A CATCH either way if you live in the U.S. or Canada:
- The Australian version is available, BUT it's in the PAL format with region 4 encoding. It is not playable on most U.S./Canada DVD players. Multi-national/multi-regional DVD players are available (look on Ebay), but unless you went out of your way to obtain one, you probably don't have one. Check your player's documentation if you don't know for sure. This web site's owner is not responsible if anyone purchases a DVD for a machine which cannot play it, so order this at your own risk
- The Japanese version is available, BUT Amazon.co.jp is in Japanese. Japan is an NTSC country, like the U.S. and Canada, BUT, when it comes to DVDs, Japan is a region 2 country, while the U.S. and Canada are region 1. It may be possible to reset the region encoding of your DVD player, or set it to play any region. Do a web search for your make and model, and you may find instructions.
If you're interested in obtaining a high quality copy of the uncut version, widescreen with no subtitles, playable on U.S. and Canadian DVD players or on VHS,

There's also now a Companion Video made up from newly-rediscovered tapes I made around the time the movie came out. It includes:
and more. There's about a half hour on The Quick and the Dead. There's also video from the day Old Tucson Studios burned down in 1995. It's NOT the set where The Quick and the Dead was made, but, following local TV news reports, there are some interesting looks at the history of Old Tucson which dates back to the 1939 film "Arizona".

- On-location, behind-the-scenes video of the movie being made
- Interviews with Russell Crowe, Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, Sam Raimi and others
