Sergio Leone Anthology in June - Artwork added

Fox and MGM Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Sergio Leone Anthology for 5th June 2007. Available in the UK since April 2005 the remastered and feature packed editions of Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More and Duck, You Sucker (A Fistful of Dynamite) are finally headed to Region 1 DVD as Two-Disc Collector’s Editions this summer alongside a newly packaged and Fox distributed The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (Collector's Edition).

All four titles are priced individually at $26.98 SRP each, or available as part of The Sergio Leone Anthology box-set which retails at $89.98 SRP.
