Title: Best version I've seen by far
Post by: Half-Soldier on July 05, 2003, 10:42:06 AM
Did anyone see the Italian print shown at the NFT when Frayling's book came out. Because that was the definitive version. Restored by Leone's company in Rome, some years after his death. It began with the revolution message, white on black, followed by the pissing on an ant hill scene, included the night scene where Steiger ruins Coburns explosion plot (which explains thier on going relationship) and has the "dead sons" scene cut the right way around (very important). I must say it looked beautiful. These are the things I will be looking for as much as running times on the DVD release.

Theres also those subtle differences in some versions such as Juans firing squad scene, Sean shouts "Duck you sucker" in one version "Short fuse" in another
