About 15-18 years ago I had exchanged emails with Sifiso Maphanga who played Arthur, the silent South African kid, he had a good memory of the shoot and of Dolph.

I found his email to me from 2000, If I remember he had visited the website:
"I enjoyed working with Dolph a great deal. He is a very nice person. He is kind, a humanitarian, helpful and very supportive. Not once during the whole production, did I see Dolph loose his temper."

Hoping they got a quality master from Nu Image like the PEACEKEEPER one use in France.

No info about other releases, and in France I think the distributor isn't too hot about releasing this one, especially since I'm not sure their double features of last year sold very well... :?

Uncut (the German VHS was trimmed by a few min), with a rating lowered to FSK-16 and in 24fps (1080p HD proper speed like 35mm prints)...

Finally another Dolph I can cross off the list of titles that need upgrading.

Personally though there are 3 or 4 other titles I would prefer get a good Blu-Ray release.

(it says "uncut" because the initial German releases were not)

By the way, "THE SWEEPER" was the production title before they changed it to SWEEPERS.
