Someone has posted below Erickson's review about seeing a longer version of 120 mins on a German channel in 1999.  The extra stuff included the scene where he steals the poncho from a soldier by the river and a longer beating scene. He posted this3 years ago. When did the outtakes  surface...4 years ago?

Ok, I copied that comment for you SLWBers:

" You people don"t understand this is-NOT THE DIRECTORS CUT !! where is the directors cut witch i saw in the summer of 1999 on the German chanel Pro 7 ? all the dvd bluray all of them are CUT versions ! the film is not 99 min is about 120 min !!!! now the film opens with Clint stealing a poncho from a mexican next to a river,only after that opening title arrives and we see the map of Mexico ,the characters name is not Joe is Ray he is a confederate sargent ! after the sun shot when the opening titles end we see the mules feet walking trough the desert only after that we see him arrives at the fountain witch the scene is much longer when he drinks water he takes his time ..only after that wee see the scene where Marisol is rushing fat at the window to see what is going on, another scene cut is where Clint meets Piripero the coffin maker at the beginning of the town and they chat for a while < another scene cut is where the Rohos and Baxters are meeting siting at a dinner table , another scene cut is after the Marisol and Baxters son exchange is where Clint is siting in his poncho with no hat in the street and talks to Silvanito only after that the exchange begins , another scene is the Rohos party there mexican girls come and dance and Clint gets drunk with about 5 glasses of tequila and lands in Chiho's lap only after that he caries him drunk up the stairs .., another scene is the beating of Clint witch begins by showing the Rohos boots and Ramon's men are kiking Clint in a circle by punching him and Rubio rips his hand shirt of only azfther that wee see they trough him in that basement .. another scene cut is where Silvanito and Piripero take Clint to the cave and they take care of his broken arm only afther thet wee se him training with his gun, another scene is the opening duel where it begins with about 5 dynamite explosions not with just two.. only after that the duel music begins with is much longer then the cut versions .. now this version i am sure Tarantino has it because i saw his inspiration of the beating scene in Death Proof where the girls are beating Kurt Russel at the end of the film well that is exactly the cut beating scene of Clint in the film ..! ho has this version ? why people dont know about it ? they all saw the cut dvd or bluray bow shit cut versions ! this Cannes restoration is shit cos they should had restore the film WITH ALL THE MISSING SCENES !"

That's irritating, because I doubt that is is true. Actually it can't be true, otherwise this version would be known in Germany by everyone interested in westerns. But I never heard about such a version. And where should it origin from?
The German theatrical version is just the same as released a dozen times on home video, with the usual 100 min runtime.

And if such a version existed in whatever country, there's no doubt that we all would long knew it. And possess it.

Yes I am sceptical about this. I think he's seen a script. Surely we would have heard about it in this day and age.  I got in touch with him and he said the Leone family or Cinecita have it and maybe Prof Frayling!!

Interested to find out if there's anything new on the 3 mins on the Kino disc.

Watched this one last night... It's pretty uneven as Joe mentioned, but there's plenty left to enjoy. It's got some beautiful shots & locations, Jeff Bridges gives the 'scraggy (recovering) alcoholic detective' trope a whole new harsh dimension, it was cool to see Alexandra Paul in a more challenging part (I mostly know her from Baywatch :D ), and Patricia Arquette and Andy Garcia are always watchable (altho as Joe also says, Garcia goes a bit over-the-top at times)... But the editing and some of the dialogue is atrocious, damn (apparently some of the dialogue was ad-libbed as there was none). It could've been an easy 8+/10, as it stands it's a 7-/10 for me now.

Yes the whole warehouse sequence would have benefited a bit of trimming.

The Spiral Staircase (1945)  EEEEHHH.  I didn't care for this one.  The contrived older woman in the bed with her shenanigans.  You knew who the bad guy was gonna end up being.  The whole thing was kinda silly.  The cinematography was pretty good. Other than that...  5 out of 10.

Don't think I've ever watched this one completely. Saw the very beginning that's it.

Those are better, but do the same with all the ones above those they stretch the box way to wide :-)
