Title: "Where life has no value..." Was it part of the original Italian theatrical cut?
Post by: rocky on December 31, 2015, 02:59:21 PM
All the editions I have of For a Few Dollars More has this title card near the beginning, except the Italian Blu-ray I just got where it is absent. So was this something that wasn't originally shown in Italy or did the people behind the Blu-ray forget to include it?

I'm trying to make a definitive Blu-ray and I just want it to be the best-looking and most complete version.

I'm using:

Superior Italian Blu-ray video
Short uncut scene from German Blu-ray
English mono from German Blu-ray

And if the title card was shown originally then I'll get it from the UK Blu-ray.

The card was there ever since I saw the movie in 1965.

Thanks. I guess the Italians weren't able to locate the card in good quality or just forgot to include it.

The film is better without it. Terrible beginning.

Worse was only Clint's avowal that he wants to buy with the bounty a farm. Jesus friggin Christ ... proves that Leone hasn't fully understand his own vision at that time.
