[Germany/VHS/German dub/no subs/letterbox]

Here's the German VHS cover for Bobby A. Suarez' entertaining Chris Mitchum film COSA-NOSTRA ASIA made in the Philippines in 1973. Canisius (aka Philipp) of Cinehound forum was so nice as to send it to me as a surprise gift (in order to get me to speed up sending him some stuff which... I was being slow doing. Yes, I'm a slow bastard, sorry to everyone who's still waiting for something!). Anyway, big thank-you's go out to Philipp!!! You're the best, mate!!! More people ought to send me rare films for free. LOL. And yes this is indeed a rare film! COSA-NOSTRA ASIA (aka Asia Cosa-Nostra) has never had an English language video or DVD release and exists only on video dubbed to funny languages such as German, French and Spanish. There are three different German video releases and the one Canisius sent me is a bit different to the one I'm posting here. There's white instead of blue and the pictures are arranged differently on the back of the cover. And it's a cool bigbox edition with the cover printed directly on the box. Very nice (and as I said a rare tape too). The German VHS is fully letterboxed and dubbed in German. I have no idea whether it's cut or not.
