1  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: "OUATITW: Shot by Shot" by Frayling? on: February 08, 2018, 05:14:27 AM
The book has had a change of title.  SHOOTING A MASTERPIECE. Date is pushed back again as well. I liked the Shot by Shot title but hey.

Yes its likely to be from these promo shots.

Yeah, only 24 pages about GBU, then most of the thing is about other classics. A bit disappointing. And yes there are pics. I still haven't read anything but here is a quick videos of me turning all the GBU pages (and quickly going through the rest of it) so you can get a sense of the content:

Thanks for posting that. I won't be buying this now though.

One of the biggest movies magazine in France is called Premiere. They're starting a new collections of "Mooks" (in their own words: "contraction of magazine and book") called Premiere Classics. The second issue is about GBU.
I bought it despite the terrible layout and artworks but I don't think I'll have the time to read it in the coming week.


I was thinking of buying it. I contacted them as there was no way to buy it from their website and they said they hadn't sorted the shipping to UK out and to try in a couple of weeks.
Its a 24 page article. Are there any new photos in it?

I don't have the Kino but a friend who does tells me of a music track mistake in the desert scene when Blondie Collapses and Tuco dismounts. The long chord in the Italian print is in the Kino Theatrical cut which it shouldn't be.

I have compared a few versions and found that the chord starts when Tuco dismounts in my Italian TV version and in the 2004 Extended cut it starts on the first close up of Blondie's face. It sounds different as well. The Italian version is more of a drone sound and the 2004 has a higher 'tension' pitch.

Picture quality wise, how does the Laserdisc compare to the Mondo.

ideally a capture of the VHS would be great. If that's not a possibility then I'd like to confirm that it comes from the same source as the CBS/Fox LD. (Although that crude cut is probably enough verification). I can send you a list of distinguishing features of the CBS/Fox LD that he could look for on the Intervision VHS.

I'll see if he can get a capture of the crude cut and if you send the list to me I will ask him to compare it.

Le Bon, do you happen to have a copy of the Intervision VHS?


I don't have a copy. A friend I have been emailing has it. I can ask him if there's anything you want to know about it.

Yes that's the one.

The Italian RAI TV broadcast presents the Italian home release cut (to be expected) yet English opening credits are used (very unexpected). Huh

It appears the TV prints were cobbled together using whatever elements were available/provided. Some of the early home release versions (VHS and LD) were sourced from these elements as well. For example, the 1990 MGM laserdisc had Italian onscreen titles yet it was the International Cut. There is an 80's Warner VHS that had Italian onscreen titles when the 3 characters were introduced but used English titles at the end. The 80s CBS LD used an Italian print that was crudely edited to conform to the International Cut. It has a crude cut where the first few seconds of the "6 is the perfect number" scene is visible before it cuts to Tuco in the boxcar, presumably to allow for the music to play to its entirety as the train leaves the station. These are some examples off the top of my head.


That's interesting about the CBS LD. In the UK an early VHS by Intervision had the same crude cut you mentioned.

Yes, the English cut had those three titles in English. Each international territory was given virtually the same print with the credit sequence and those titles as separate elements. Interestingly, the length of those titles varies depending on how the distributor decided to splice them in..the Spanish DVD for instance has the longest tuco intro title out of all the cuts, even the Italian. It has about a second more footage at the beginning of the shot resulting in the action of tuco running towards the window being repeated.


How did the UK TV versions come to have them in Italian?
They screened the Int cut not the UK cinema one which had the gunsmith and Van Cleef and the prison camp commandant scenes cut out.

Did the original 1967 theatrical cut have the three characters intertitles (Good, Bad Ugly) that come up on their intro and exit scenes, in English?
When I first saw the film which was on UK TV in 1976, they were in Italian.

It doesn't look good.  Hearing there are framing problems with the extras ported over from the extended edition  Sad

Does anyone know if the P.E.A. credit under Grimaldi's name will be restored?

No its not restored.
