The pee scene is fine... I was just referring to the (three?) fast-motion bits (Drawing faster than his saddle could fall down / slapping in the bar & the soldiers chasing the train. All three could have been done with fast-motion. Fast motion is bad beyond the silent era, except for Jerry Lewis maybe. Btw, Peckinpah did it too... in THE LOSERS & CABLE HOGUE.

Yes - true, it doesn't look good by today's standards.

What's "The Losers" like?

I'm coming around to the idea that Nobody is a Postmodern film (you win this one, stanton (bastard!)). That would mean the two Fonda films form a unit within the Leone oeuvre. I'm OK with that, especially if it puts paid to the notion that there is a Once Upon A Time trilogy. 

There can still be two trilogies, with one title that overlaps. The three Dollars films can still be considered together. The second trilogy--or triptych, actually,as I've already indicated--would be GBU, DYS, and OUATIA. Somehow I feel this is how things are going to be recorded in the Sergio Leone Encyclopedia.

THE LOSERS is quite interesting. First of all he named the protagonists Dave Blassingame (& his dog "Brown") & Burgundy Smith (as in THE WESTERNER),
the cast is terrific (Lee Marvin, Keenan Wynn, Dub Taylor, Rosemary Clooney) and it is more or less a comedy. It was the first time Sam
used slow-motion, people falling - just like in THE WILD BUNCH. There's some singing in it that is a little bit too much for my taste, but
overall very good. PERICLES ON 31st STREET I prefer though.

You're a basket of deplorables all by yourself.
