I have a DVDR of the italian VHS released by AVOFILM.
While it´s not one of my favorites, I still enjoyed it quite a bit.
Yeah, Robert Hoffman's expressionless acting is difficult to warm up to (actually I feel the same about Lino Capolicchio!)
Not sure if the AVO version I have is in the correct aspect ratio, but at least we get to see (part of) Hoffmann and Adiutori's faces!
Here's a screenshot for comparison:
EDIT: Just checked the initial credits and, unfortunately, the AVO tape is indeed missing information on both sides!
