I like Cut-Throats Nine...great soundtrack as well.
Originally this was to be a standalone release with interviews and a replica "terror mask":
"I'd just like to let everyone about the two releases that didn't turn out the way I wanted. CUTTHROATS NINE was supposed to be a deluxe edition with an interview by English language rights owner Serafim Karalexis (president of United International Pictures) who paid the filmmakers to re-shoot the violent scenes, an interview with Jim Markovic who re-cut the film and made the trailer, and also a copy of the "terror mask" that was given out to audiences at the theatre box-office. In the end, Markovic couldn't find the original mask, and Serafim didn't want to do the interview. Without extras, I could never outsell the 2,000 copies Eurovista moved on this title. Since the Fred Williamson series sold less than 750 copies, releasing JOSHUA alone would also be a losing proposition. I figured that instead of sitting on the two films, why not double bill two titles that were going nowhere for a single release. Both films are mastered from 35mm prints and they look a lot better then those "other" releases (JOSHUA looks ten times better than those PD labels!)" (Bill/CR)
