I hope original 35mm negatives of the added scenes, as well maybe rest of the missing scenes out there somewhere, that the only way can be restored from the original 35mm negatives, other wise working with positives that have been already badly preserved just hopeless

Hey fellas I am afraid got some bad news about Once Upon A Time In America Extended Version US BD, here what it said on the back cover of the BD.

The newly added 22 minutes of extended scenes bring us closer to Leone original vision of the film, but due to the limited availability of 35mm work prints, the new inserts could not be restored to the same quality as the rest of the film,

that means we going to get same quality of the added scenes as it was released in Italy what a shame, nothing mentioned about color grading color correction.  

there is still 19 minutes missing as Martin Scorsese mentioned other scenes in bad state and restored them takes time, I bet there is going to be another extended version in future.

Italian BD deleted scenes looks poor it's dark greenish but somehow watchable, except scenes the cemetery, limo chauffer driver, and eve meeting noodles, Martin Scorsese mention in press release that they couldn't find original negatives yet of the deleted scenes, only element were available discarded strips of working positives that has been badly preserved, since Cannes premiere movie was withdrawn for further restoration but we'll see upon US BD hope deleted scenes will look descent then on Italian BD

I hope the original negatives of missing scenes turns out some where one day, and maybe even with more deleted scenes we just have to pray wait and hope

At Cannes Film Festival press release in pdf here http://www.festival-cannes.com/assets/Image/Direct/045945.pdf was mention that new version is 4 hours 15 min 255 min, but Blu-ray released in Italy 4 hours 11 min 251 min which is US prepping to release on September 30 so there is great deal of confusion of runtime versions

I think Warner Bros releasing the Blu-ray to make fans happy, but I wouldn't be surprise in a few years there will be another release with complete version I hope

suppose good news that warner finally decide to release the movie in extended form 251 min what about other 18 min the Marty Scorsese were talking about and we don't know what transfer look like I hope not the one that got released in Italy which is terrible and main concern is extended scenes state what they would look like in US release and one more thing Blu-ray cover art cover art looks terrible they might want to consider to change

added scenes













































According to the issue 359 Cahiers Du Cinema

Sergi Leone in interview there is another 50 minutes of scenes, Sergio Leone meant that 220 min PAL European runntime 3 hrs 40 plus 50 mins will be 270 mins or 220 mins plus 45 will be 265 mins that makes sense

ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA 1984 RESTORED EXTENDED VERSION Premiere At The Piazza Maggiore A Bologna 2012

C'ERA UNA VOLTA IN AMERICA 1984 Restaurato Piazza Maggiore A Bologna 2012





















































Only disappointment is that it's not in the original aspect ratio 1.85:1 left and right sides are still crop i compare my DVD and HDTV versions to the early restored studio preparation version and the one premiere in italy, sure you can see the difference

Comparison between HDTV - DVD and early Restore Extended versions and Italy premiere

I analyze images measures the first and third image in 1.78:1 the second image in approx 1.93:1

May be it's to early to say i guess theatrical and video release can be different we'll see upon Blu-ray release later
