When the passenger is speaking to Mortimer on the train, a car is visible out the window. It is the little black dot that is moving from lower right to upper left.

There is a castle visible to the left of the locomotive right before Mortimer exits the train! It the La Calahorra. The tracks and set are gone; but the castle remains.

According the IMDB, there is a scene during the final gunfight where you can see cars driving on a highway in the background. Has anyone else seen this?

General Discussion / The Voices of Mario Brega
« on: February 08, 2012, 07:36:49 PM »
Mario Brega was in all three "Dollars" films, and in each movie he is voiced by someone different! Does anyone know who did the voices, and if Brega spoke any English at all?

Did Marianne Koch perform her own voice for the English language version or was it supplied by someone else? Did she speak English at all?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Cutting down the film
« on: January 30, 2012, 08:55:48 PM »
Alright, from what I have read on this board and elsewhere, I have put together a summary of how the film was chopped down all the way to its international release. All comments and corrections are welcome.

The original film upon completion ran around 186 minutes. The Socorro scene was cut, and the extended torture scene was trimmed due to a damaged negative, resulting in 179 minute running time. The film was dubbed into Italian, and shown at the premiere. Due to pacing reasons, Leone cut the Grotto scene out for a 176 minute version for Italian theaters. In 1967, 14 ADDITIONAL minutes were cut, resulting in the standard 162-minute version for the U.S. Eastwood, Wallach, and Van Cleef all dubbed their voices at this time. The 14 minutes of deleted scenes, (still in the Italian language), were used as extras on the 1998 DVD release. Finally, in 2003, the 14 minutes were restored and re-dubbed into English, as well as the 3-minute Grotto scene, resulting in the 179-minute Extended Version.


The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / 186 Minutes?
« on: January 07, 2012, 10:31:57 PM » has the French version of this film being 186 minutes!  Why is this? This cannot include the Grotto scene, since that never made the final cut.
