Both films sent from Amazon US for only £7.81. They've not been released here and are region free. There is no VAT or import charges to pay on this either as it is under the £15 limit with the cheapest delivery option, which normally takes 8-14 days for me.

Although it says usually dispatched in 7-11 days, mine from yesterday is already preparing for shipment.

Goddamn Baboon. Eating all my Oreo's

You do know they smacked 7 shades of s*** out of that orangutan to make it do all that stuff....Your support of animal cruelty is appreciated.

Sorry, What? We support animal cruelty because we're buying this film? Perhaps some of us don't know about what happened to clyde? Ever think of that before throwing accusations around?

For what it's worth, nobody knows the truth regarding that. Eastwood is a huge animal lover and I'd find it very difficult to believe he would stand by and let that happen.

It was sad to hear that Clyde ended up a penniless alcoholic, sleeping rough on the streets of Vegas.

I haven't seen this since i was a kid so i decided to catch up with them a couple of years ago. I was surprised how dull both movies where, certainly they haven't aged that well. Clyde is of course the star but his bits a few and very far in between. Don't get these if you've got rose tinted glasses on, check them out first to see if you still like them

Indirectly - seeing as the film company will still benefit from this. I rather think Clint would be quite happy to take a very large pay cheque and be hoodwinked into thinking all the animals were treated like royalty. The truth especially back when this film was made was actually rather different - when rules were less strict.

This taken from a reference to a video that Angelica Houston sent out to studios :

"According to "Visions of Caliban: On Chimpanzees and People" by famed primatologist Jane Goodall and Dale Peterson, the original "Clyde" was trained with a can of mace and a pipe wrapped in newspaper. He was viciously beaten the day before filming started to make him more docile. Near the end of filming the sequel "Any Which Way You Can," the orangutan was caught stealing doughnuts on the set, brought back to the training facility and beaten for 20 minutes with a 3 1/2 -foot ax handle. He died soon after of a cerebral hemorrhage."

This incident has never been proven. For starters, Clyde was replaced in the second film as he had grown too large. So that is one fact that this article has wrong.

Also, to accuse Eastwood of turning a blind eye to animal cruelty for a cheque, shows how little you know about him. He's an animal rights activist. The man has been known to halt filming to remove a bug from the set!

Fact is nobody knows what happened to Manis. What you shouldn't be doing is accusing people of supporting animal cruelty because they bought a film. That money we pay does not support it either. If the trainer did horrible things to those Orangutans then thats on that trainer, not the people who made the film. They won't receive a penny from people buying this on blu ray as they had their pay cheque back when these were made.

I didn't say turning a blind eye I said "hoodwinked". They're entirely different. And it's not up for debate that animal cruelty was often unchecked in this film's era - it's a very different story today. But yes the last point I concede on - and thank Darth they only got paid the once for their inflictions. Knowing that cruelty checks at time of production were far less stringent than they are today should be enough to make anyone rather uncomfortable watching this film. ......should be...

I'm well aware it went unchecked, but that doesn't mean all these animals were mistreated. Unless you have hard evidence that proves that Manis was mistreated, (there is none, and it is mostly rumoured) then you should not be making judgments on those who have/may buy these films to enjoy them.

I mean, are you suggesting that nobody should watch a film before the checks were put in place because an animal may have been mistreated? Why should I feel uncomfortable watching this when nobody knows the truth regarding what happened? Don't you think that seems a bit of an overreaction?

For the record, I am a huge animal lover too. Nothing turns my stomach and makes me more angry than harm coming to them.

I found that much after a few seconds. I'm fairly confident I could find a ton more after more thorough research. And okay my original statement about everyone supporting anything was over the mark. But in an era where the rules were so lax I wouldn't really be sat convincing myself "okay it probably didn't happen here". But it's just worth bearing in mind that back then, getting primates to perform through beating them was commonplace. Imagining that it suddenly didn't happen because it got made into a film is stretching it a bit for me.
