I dont get how MGM own the rights in Britain and Paramount own them in would be nice to have all of the films released by one company so the packaging looks similar.
The rights situation in Germany goes back to the 1960es when the films were made. It has to do with the fact that both movies were German co-productions. Paramount owns the rights due to a deal with German rightsholder Tobis.

As for the cuts, my opinion is the same as Sundance's. Unfortunately the Paramount release of FAFDM does seem to have four known cuts, so far. None of these cuts are significant (you might compare them to the 6 seconds of dangerous horse falls on the UK DYS release), but cut is cut. Personally, I think the fact that the DVDs don't play flawlessly in every piece of standard compliant equipment is a worse flaw than those cuts.

However, there'll be a 3 disc special edition of FOD next year in Italy, so FAFDM should receive a similar treatment there as well. ;)

I'm still hoping the Beaver will include the French DVD in its comparison at some point. I recently came across a couple of comparison shots between the Paramount and the Studio Canal discs. They were pretty close, though the Paramount disc seemed to have slight edge over the Studio Canal release. I'll post the link as soon as I find it again.

Didn't notice this being mentioned here earlier so... here it goes. :P
Shh, quiet or you'll be hanged for disturbing the peace in happy lala-land. ;)

Sundance, does the UK disc include the scene after the arrow-kill at the beginning where the dead cowboy drops to the floor? What is missing from the Paramount version are two shots: one showing the dead man bumping on the floor and lying there, and a second showing the fat guy on the chair looking down on him with a mean face.

The full end should contain at least a pan across Monument Valley and a shot of Terence Hill sitting on top of the mountain watching the bird fly. Can you see Terence Hill during those 5 extra seconds on the UK disc?

General Discussion / Re: the best book upon Leone ??

Hello hatamis,

I've heard from several people that the best book in French about Sergio Leone is "Sergio Leone" by French critic Gilles Cèbe, published 1984 by éditions Henri Veyrier.

I haven't read it yet, though. Still looking for it myself. You'll probably have to find a 2nd hand copy. The strengths of Frayling's book show as long as he talks about Leone's main trilogies (Dollars & Once upon a Time...). When he talks about his other movies he's less convincing, so to speak. ;)

Hope that helps.

Leonardo, is this the book you're quoting from?

According to the description it contains, among other things, the complete script to the movie as well as an interview with Leone.

Thanks alot for the review cigar joe! I still need to make up my mind whether to invest in this book or not. I've been hearing "mixed" reviews so far. ;)

General Discussion / (Unknown) Leone documentary?
« on: September 12, 2005, 02:41:45 AM »
This is aimed at the documentary experts in residence here. ;)

German cable tv channel broadcasted a documentary about Sergio Leone last Saturday, incl. interviews with Claudia Cardinale, Tonino Delli Colli, Clint Eastwood, Andrea Leone, Eli Wallach, and of course the man himself. Quite a few of the interview snippets showed Leone speaking French, so these might have been made for French tv originally.

Unfortunately, however, the whole thing was heavily edited and it only covered Leone's life and career up to the making of "Giù la testa". The ending appeared to be cut off as well, so there's probably more to it. Has anybody heard of this documentary before and might be able to tell where it originates from (country, broadcaster etc.)?

Any help appreciated. :)

This has been reported on another web board:

as of early September the owner of Mini Hollywood in Almeria has confirmed that Castellari hasn't been in the area filming anything.

And as of late August an italian industry website reportedly lists the movie as still in preparation.

I definitely don't think we'll see any further progress this year, unfortunately.

The decision whether a corrected full-length release will be made available or not is entirely Paramount's. :P

You proberbly got feedback on condition of the Paramount Genius already. The sections you mentioned and posted are missing. The ending being the biggest dissapointment. But it does look in better condition (colour balance etc) than the UK R2 version.
I took those screenshots from the German cinefacts board where they were posted. There has also been independent confirmation by people from different countries about having seen the missing scenes in theatres when the movie was released in Europe. It'll be interesting to see how Paramount deals with this issue. But to be honest, I don't expect a corrected full-length release, given the cost cutting measures Paramount reportedly undertook.

Then those are Amarays. It is just the trademarked name those plastic "keep cases" got from the manufacturer.

A "digipak" is made out of cardboard with a transparent plastic tray glued onto it to hold the discs. It would look like this:

These are the ones, right?

Out of curiousity, Walton, how are they packaged? Amaray case or digipak?

I haven't yet heard about any plans by Studio Canal to release "Un génie, deux associés, une cloche".

As for the correct English title several have been in use as you can see:

If I'm not mistaken it was called "A genius, two partners and a dupe" in the UK. While in the US it was known under three different names: "Nobody's the greatest", "Trinity is Back Again" and "The Genius".
You can also go to Fatmandan's site. Click on the letter G and scroll down to "*GENIO, DUE COMPARI, UN POLLO, Un" and you'll see a list of all the names the movie had in different countries.

Hope that helps. :)

Based on what I've read, if Leone had been able to get some good actors in the lead roles, this would've been one hell of a movie.
I absolutely agree! ;) As Kermit already pointed out Leone wanted Rourke and Gere for the lead roles, he even named the characters Mike and Richard. If I remember correctly he already had talked to Rourke about the project.

According to Italian sources Andrea Leone, Sergio's son, was still planning to have the movie made.
