Dear Picabo,
I really would like that avi-file. But I'm a little dummy. What do I have to do? I went to the page and didn't find a way to contact you. Do I have to register there? But where?
I really would appreciate if you could help me.
Thanks in advance

Hello everybody,
I am late. I only got the files from no. 36 on. Thank you very much for that.
I hate to ask, but .... is there a chance that on of you would upload 1 through 35 again.
I really would appreciate that, since I always hated the cropped version on the OUATIA DVD.

Has anyone seen the screening of the new restored version of Once Upon a Time in America which will soon come out on DVD?
Is the flahback-sequence in the final scene included??

I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree with you,I think the flashback makes the film even better,I find it quite moving couopled with Morricone's theme.

I own two VHS versions of this.The first,which I must have bought about 12 or 13 years ago,DOES have the flashback in.The second,which I bought later on and was a widescreen/remastered version,does not.It was in Channel 4's version but not in BBC2's.It seems that older releases of the movie have the scene and more recent ones don't.

I totally agree with you. This flashback has to be in a version which should be something close to a director's cut (the real director's cut would be 270 minutes!). There are two reasons:
1) Leone himself talked about the 227-minutes version when he promoted the film in Europe. And this version contains the flashback. I saw it myself.
2) The whole final scene is much better with the flashback included. The emotional impact is much deeper.
So I really hope the inserted the scene back in. But I doubt it: In the 226-minutes laserdisc it was missing...

I own the US laserdisc which runs 226 min. On this version there is an important flasback of the final scene missing. I hope they corrected that and the 3 more minutes on the DVD-version is a hint for that.
Does anybody know more about that?
