Compared are the cut Spanish Blu-ray by Divisa Home Video and the German DVD by New KSM / Screenpower with the Extended Version
- 5 cuts
- Length difference: 106.8 sec (= 1:47 min) [in PAL]
Also, there are 8 relevant additional moments with a total length of 13.8 sec
There are minor jump-cuts with a length of less than 0.5 sec that have not been considered in the following comparison.
God Forgives... I Don't! from 1967 was the first huge appearance of Bud Spencer & Terence Hill in the same movie. There are several versions available - the longest one has been used for this comparison*
So far, a Blu-ray is only available in Spain - based on the so-called Extendeed Version but slightly cut.
The Spanish Blu-ray
Not considering the company logos at the beginning, the Spanish Blu-ray is almost 2 minutes shorter: The murder of the Mexican field worker is completely missing and the guy who killed the Marshall only gets whipped once. Later on, a small part of the scene with Hill hanging from the ceiling and Spencer showing up there is missing and so is Bill's encounter with Hill's messenger at the end. As source for further Blu-ray releases, the Spanish Blu-ray is somewhat less than perfect.
On the other hand, the Spanish Blu-ray contains some footage missing on the German DVD due to jump-cuts. Nothing spectacular but still nice.
All in all, the Spanish Blu-ray is alright. The quality is good and if it was not for the missing footage, it would be very recommendable. But there is still hope that an uncut Blu-ray will be released some day.

Spanish Blu-ray / German DVD Extended Version in PAL
* The German DVD that has been used for this comparison does not match the Extended Version on the Italian DVD because there are a few minor jump-cuts - please see the differences written cursively. But any relevant scene is on it and for that reason, the German DVD has been used for the following comparison.
The German DVD contains English credits while an Italian master has been used for the Spanish Blu-ray - also, there are several Mercury Films logos beforehand.
Please note: Depending on the player configuration, this is not part of the actual movie file. For that reason, the length difference probably needs to be deducted from the total length of the Spanish Blu-ray...
