It depends on what you class as quite a bit.  I got hold of a "copy" of Minnesota Clay recently for a fairly good price (about £5 if I remember correctly).

Last time I saw Five Man Army on ebay it was going for about £15, for an original copy.

I haven't seen either yet (although should view MC in the next few days) so probably not the most appropriate person to comment.  Personally, I'd pay up to £10 for either, on reputation alone.

All I can say on this issue is that I got hold of a copy of Franco's version, and it is truly a spectacular thing (both the movie, and the work that he has done in compiling this "full" version.

He has carried out similar reconstruction works on other SW's, and will certainly be thinking about buying some of these.

Personally, I love Corbucci's The Hellbenders - that would be in my top 5.  On the Django debate - personally I think it is a brilliant film, and very nearly up there with Leone's best work.  Great Silence also.  Other films on that A-list, would have to include The Return of Ringo, Keoma and The Big Gundown.

I'm not so keen on the more comedy SWs that spawned from the evil "Trinity" films.  But there are many superb SWs out there - even some of the lesser known ones (check out Johnny Yuma for instance).

For me, it would have to be "Return of Sabata", maybe not the most obvious, but I really found that a struggle.

I watched Jonathan of the Bears for the first time the other day, and thought it was great.  I wrote a few words about it on IMDB, ahem.....

"The Franco Nero and Enzo Castellari collaboration is best known for Keoma, which is generally (and rightly) accepted to be one of the last great Spaghetti Westerns. Filmed twenty years later, this film - although not particularly well known or lauded - stands up to the high quality set by its predecessor.

Jonathan of the Bears continues on the racism themes noted within Keoma, concentrating on an orphan's relationship with the indians and bear that nurtured him following his parent's execution, and the "greedy" white man that has no respect for the nature or beliefs of the natives.

This film is very touching, dealing with the sensitive issue of the plight of the indians and other minority races, whilst maintaining the exciting shootouts that we expect to see in our spaghetti westerns. In particular, the opening sequence that charts the death of Jonathan's parents, and his development from man to boy - the majority of which is shot in black and white - is very moving.

It is not the easiest of films to find, but I would definitely recommend it (particularly for those people that enjoyed Keoma)".

So, as you see, it gets my recommendation.
