if you don't like the scene, simply click "next chapter" on your remote as soon as the shootout ends.... that should take you straight to the next scene at the McBain ranch...

It's not necessarily the scene itself that I don't like; it is the fact that the placement of the scene destroys the transition from the shootout to the McBain family. Besides having to click next chapter each time being really annoying, I would have to time it absolutely perfectly each time so as not to ruin the transition.

For those who see the film for the first time it ruins not only the transition, but also changes the narrative structure of the first 40 min.

If Leone wanted that scene out, then of course I don't want it in, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it changes the narrative structure of the first 40 minutes. The only real differences are that a) you lose the gunshot-gunshot transition; and b) you lose the surprise when you hear Harmonica playing in the trading post, cuz you know he is alive

No there is more as you don't know for 25 min what happened, you don't know why there was this scene when all are presumed dead at the end (especially as all which are introduced in another long scene are also all killed at the end of that 2nd scene). That's very irritating in a very delicate way. And of course Harmonica's comeback is more impressive.

The one that actually started it all, at the Museum of Modern Art this holiday weekend.


Yojimbo

1961. Japan. Directed by Akira Kurosawa. With Tosihro Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai, Yoko Tsukasa, Takashi Shimura. Kurosawa’s return to the samurai drama is perhaps his most explicit homage to John Ford, John Wayne (through Mifune’s anti-heroic hero), and the Western. (Coincidentally, we are also screening the Ford/Wayne classic The Searchers on September 11.) Kurosawa’s film was remade by Sergio Leone as A Fistful of Dollars, which essentially launched the career of Clint Eastwood. Cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa (Rashomon, Ugetsu, Floating Weeds) figures prominently in our forthcoming exhibition The Aesthetics of Shadow. In Japanese; English subtitles. 110 min.

Sunday, May 25, 2014, 2:30 p.m., Theater 1, T1

That sounds interesting

This dual disc edition is apparently just the Ripley's 2007 release re-purposed for the Japanese market, but the packaging is very cool: http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00MOD2IPQ/ref=pe_620922_171843802_em_1p_0_ti

That cover is bad-ass. The Japanese always have treated the dollars trilogy well, and they have a keen eye for the best images.
