Here's the article on the various cuts made to the U.S. versions of the film throughout its history. Hope you enjoy and take the time to read it because it was a pain to scan, lots of pages! Pretty much the definitive article on the various English language cuts...

this article incorrectly says that the ticket agent at Cattle Corner Station was Joseph Egger. As previously discussed on a thread somewhere on these boards, the ticket agent was actually played by the same guy (I forgot his name) who played the El Paso bartender in FAFDM; and the Confederate sergeant in the camp Tuco drives up to the with the ailing Blondie in GBU (in one of the scenes in the Special Edition that had been cut from the 1967 release)

Thank you very much, that's great. And more than I hoped for. It confirms everything I have assumed.

Thanks you so much JK! Very interesting indeed; now I know why the music in the end regrettably returns to Cheyenne's Theme. How can anybody be so stupid!? This guy Steven Lloyd sure did his homework and explained in detail what we were all guessing. Thanks again! O0 O0 O0

Leonardo, do you have any articles or interviews about how official the long Italian version is? Do people consider it as the DC, or is it only an alterantive version?
 I'm sure there were much discussions about this in Italy.

As I understand it the original Italian theatrical release version was never released on DVD.
