Use the BR for the terrific Frayling commentary and extra features, and the old dvd for the movie   Smiley

I don't have Blu-Ray player, so I can't just get get the Blu-RaY GBU disc.  Could someone please help out The Cuss and capture the Frayling audio onto a DVD/CD disc or cassette?  That would sure be great !!!

I doubt that there is much not already written in his book.

as we know, in the bonus features of the American SE dvd and BR discs, there is a longer version of the Tuco Torture/concentration camp orchestra scene; it was not restored to the movie itself cuz the film was damaged too much. There is a bit more dialogue in this extended version, all in Italian. When I put on the English subtitles for this scene, it just says "Speaking Italian." NO FUCKING SHIT, JOHN COCKSUCKER JERK! We know it's Italian; that's why the fuck we need English subtitles, you fucking idiot!

Anyway, if anyone here speaks Italian, has 7 minutes to watch this scene in the Bonus Materials of the American SE dvd/BR disc, and translate the dialogue into English, I -- and I suspect many of my fellow English-speaking Leone fans -- would be mighty appreciative! (It shouldn't be much work, as there is very little dialogue during the scene; most of it is just the playing of the Story of a Soldier and the torturing).

Grazie!

a little update on my initial post breaking down the 8 deleted scenes:

RE: #5) The cut scene with Blonide and Tuco consulting a map, and Blondie's comment RE: the dead soldiers, "those men aren't worried about anything anymore, are they?" -- maybe that bit of dialogue is actually better cut, maybe it's mentioned too clearly. Perhaps you can argue that just showing the dead bodies would be enough for the juxtaposition of the pursuit of gold and the dead soldiers, and having Blondie say it clearly is a bit much.

RE: #7) just watched it again last night, that scene with Aldo Giuffree's speech DEFINITELY should have been kept in its entirety. It's an important part of the movie's statement about war (and as Frayling points out in his commentary, is from one of the many works (I forgot if it's a book or a movie) that Leone references in the Civil War scenes. Aside from the scene of Angel Eyes visiting the Confederate fort, this scene is IMO the most important of the deleted scenes and definitely should have been kept in the movie.

Overall, while I of course would prefer that the movie was kept exactly as Leone wanted it, if you have to choose scenes to be deleted,  IMO deleted scenes # 2,4,5, and 6 are not very essential, while#2,7, and 8 definitely should have been kept in the movie -- that's Angel eyes at Confederate fort, the extended scene with Aldo Giuffre, and the extended scene with Blondie and Tuco under the bridge. And of course, #1, the Cave scene, should have been deleted.

yes, it's an awesome commentary.

Did you watch the tape while playing the disc on silent?

When I initially recorded the commentary onto the tapes, every once in a while I stated what time in the movie we were up to, so the commentary could be synched appropriately. But I don't know if Big C kept those "time stamps" in when he ripped the tape onto a cd.

Anyway, I have now put the file from the discs he sent me onto my computer, so I can mail the discs to anyone who needs them.


ATTENTION, YALL!

I HAVE CD'S WITH THE AUDIO FILE OF FRAYLING'S COMMENTARY TO GBU, (WHICH IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE GBU BLU RAY DISC).  IF, AND ONLY IF, YOU DO NOT OWN A BLU RAY PLAYER  AND YOU WANT TO HEAR FRAYLING'S COMMENTARY TO GBU, YOU CAN SEND ME YOU ADDRESS IN A PRIVATE MESSAGE, AND I WILL MAIL YOU THE CD. FIRST COME FIRST SERVED  Wink

Can anyone confirm whether the Italian Mondo GBU blu ray is region-free and will play in my American blu ray player (which is Region A NTSC)? http://www.amazon.com/Buono-Il-Brutto-Cattivo/dp/B00ABXSTI6/ref=sr_1_3?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1361984689&sr=1-3&keywords=il+buono+il+brutto+il+cattivo


I see that it's officially listed as Region B PAL. But the Italian blu rays of FOD (Ripley's) and FAFDM (Mondo) are also listed as Region B-PAL, but in fact the main feature is region-free, and plays fine in my blu ray player. (It's only the bonus features that are in PAL.... as for the main feature, FOD has the English audio option while FAFDM doesn't; what can you do).

So I would appreciate if anyone can confirm whether the main feature of the Mondo GBY blu ray disc will play in my American blu ray player? if it will, then I will purchase this blu ray disc. Thanks!

Yes, I have this disc, it plays the feature in my North American ps3 with no problems. The transfer is amazing (much sharper and less cropped than the U.S. which has been noise reduced to death) but it only has italian audio and there is a very annoying flaw with the transfer - almost every cut "jumps" - the frame before or after the cut is never quite right as I think over time, the splices have shrunk, or the glue they used caused the scanner to "bump" on most of the cuts.  Just so you know!

Funny, I don't have this issue with my BD. I have a Sony BDP S370 player.

Your talking about the mondo bd? It would be there on every disk, take a look at the scene where Tuco first meets blondie, there's one shot where the film jumps halfway up the screen....maybe because I work as an editor for a living I notice the jumps more than other people (the North American disk doesn't have them)
