The release comes almost exactly four years to the day after MGM's previous release of the same set, and the first two films—A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More—are identical to the earlier discs. The third film, however, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, first seen on Blu-ray in 2009, has received a long-hoped-for restoration under the auspices of the Cineteca di Bologna.
