Title: Longest italian cut
Post by: The clint on August 26, 2003, 09:25:24 AM
Reportedly there's a 'full-cut' version of this film running 162 minutes and has a lot more footage. On the page dvdtalk I saw an article reporting that the film included a torture scene, no flip screens, an extra flashback (Coburn throws a liquor bottle at a gramophone), and a scene with Coburn walking in the desert, a scene where Juan's boys destroy Sean's motorcycle and others which change the film in some way. Does anyone have information on this cut?

According to Oreste De Formari's book about Sergio Leone,the scenes you describe were cut from the film just before release and are not in any available version.However,I do balieve that work is underway to restore this and maybe other footage to the film,though I can't for the life of me remember where i read it,maybe someboby else can help?
