2  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Botched Restoration Of GBU on: May 14, 2003, 12:18:51 PM
I'm desperate to get a hold of someone regarding the restored version of "the good the bad and the ugly". I'm probably one of the biggest fans of this film and after appox 50 viewings, know the dialog by heart. So as I excitedly watched the restored version, that excitement quickly turned to horror as I noticed lines of dialog are now completely missing. I pray this can be fixed before an eventual DVD release. I'll try to give some detailed examples. at the 00:23 mark, Blondie is counting reward money with Tuco and his dialog reads "5 for you" "1,2,3,4,5 for me" "5 for you" "and 5 for me". The first two of those lines are now completely inaudible. you can barely hear it in the backround and then it pops back in before the 3rd line. At the 1:47 mark, Angel Eyes calls Blondie into the room after beating Tuco. His line reads "the war's over for you". this line is now inaudible. then in the same scene at the 1:48 mark the dialog drops out again! this time Angel Eyes says "im not greedy, im only taking half". again inaudible!! There is another scene later when they are blowing up the bridge but i dont have the time code. This is not a case of the sound just dropping out as the backround noise is still very audible. Itís only the dialog track. I cannot believe what a huge oversight this is. I pray this is fixed before the eventual DVD release. What a shame it would be to spend all the money restoring the film only to botch the job. Help me get the word out!!!  Undecided
