By the Gods!

 Pentheus (Alberto Lupo) vs Dionysus (Pierre Brice) in THE BACCHANTES (1961)

The movie is still not available in HD but it is available on Amazon Prime, in standard definition. That version has the original English opening credits. As a reminder, this was the first Fan Dub I ever made, over 10 years ago. Finding an English copy was almost impossible to find and when I found it, the audio was out of synch with the image and the quality was terrible. But I managed to complete a Fan Dub of it, which took time. I eventually uploaded to Youtube and it was a hit, with millions of views. Unfortunately, Youtube yanked it and that was the end of that. The copy would surface here and there all over the internet, including dupes on DVDs. But now the actual English version has been made available on Amazon (and Youtube as well from a channel that I won't mention), my original Fan Dub is not needed anymore. Oddly enough, the image of my Fan Dub is still better than the murky one found on Amazon.
