This is my first post on this forum, but I've read the discussions on this forum for quite some time now:)
Yesterday I ordered this Italian Sergio Leone BluRay Boxset online:http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Sergio-Leone-Collection-Blu-ray/21788/
I know that these releases are not English-friendly, but what the hell, I had to get these movies (GBU especially) in decent quality!
Now I've read on this forum that there are several differences between this Italian version and the restored MGM version. I'll list those that I know here, but I'd like to ask you to add other differences which I might have forgotten or don't know about:)
Differences between the restored MGM cut and the Italian BluRay release:
- The "Il Grotto" scene is exclusive to the MGM cut
- The torture sequence is missing a reaction shot of Angel Eyes on the Italian BD
- Finale of "The Trio" is slowed down and contains a wailing horn on the 5.1 mix of the Italian BD
- "Sorry, Tuco" scene is missing on the Italian BD
- Different shots of Tuco screaming "You dirty son of a ..."
Are there more differences? Especially concerning the torture sequence!
