The way I thought it is that when the prints for theatrical distribution were made those were made with Technicolor or Eastman color (fades way way more in time?) or whatever.

But I don't really know anything about this either so... Wink

EDIT: There's actually an eastman print of GBU for sale here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Clint-Eastwoods-THE-GOOD-THE-BAD-AND-THE-UGLY-on-35mm-film-/251486242442?pt=US_Film&hash=item3a8dbf868a

We will have to see this in motion to be sure. Don't be hasty.

I agree see it in motion before your final judgement.

In the southwest, Mexico, Almeria, etc., the sun is so bright that there is normally/everyday so much contrast between a shaded face and bright landscapes, otherwise is artificial.  I know the spaghetti westerns used aluminum reflectors to reflect light onto the actors' faces to brighten them up a little, otherwise you'd barely see their faces.  And if the exposure gets opened up, the bright stuff looks bleached out.  So not easy.

More screenshots (no comparison):

Most of those shots look better than any version of FoD I have ever seen (I have to say I never watched the BRD I own). I never really liked the lights and colors from the first dollar film, but the yellowed approach seems to work fine here. Especially on faces, that suffer from terrible direct lightening coming from behind the camera both in FoD and FafDM. Heavy color correction is often a cheap trick to help images that have not been correctly lighted and/or framed so it's a good thing here. No idea what Leone wanted so it's just an expression of my personal taste.

I rest my case for GBU where Delli Colli lightened with such attention and precision that heavy color correction does nothing but destroy his great and subtle work. Eh, I'd rather watch GBU in B&W than yellowed. At least the lightening will be preserved.

In this second comparison the old Italian Blu looks to be of better quality (not talking about the colors)? Almost like the new one were 2k and the old 4k... but maybe it is just my eyes/brain not working. Tongue Then again it is a different frame so....

Tarantino's introduction...as usual full of a lot of hyperbole- but he says "I can't wait to see this new print with the extra four minutes". Is it possible they have added scenes to the film? Or I guess maybe they just premiered the same 4 minutes of outtakes that were released online.

I really enjoyed this intro by Tarantino. Great stuff!

Do y'all agree with Tarantino's statement that Morricone and Eastwood are Leone's two greatest collaborators?

Thanks Jordan!

D&D: they surely had the most interesting solo career, but as collaborators, they were just as great as Delli Colli, Baragli, Simi and many many others.

remember this exchange from Quentin Tarantino


Question: What are the prints you prize most?

Tarantino: I have all three Sergio Leone Clint Eastwood movies in I.B. Technicolor. Magnificent-looking. I just saw the DCP restoration of A Fistful of Dollars at Cannes. I introduced it. I felt like I was watching a DVD. I said, "Why didnít you ask me to bring my fucking print?" They said, ĎWell, there was three extra minutes in this." I said, "Iíve seen that movie a million times and I didnít notice those extra minutes. I just noticed that it looked like a fucking DVD."


(in this interview http://www.laweekly.com/publicspectacle/2014/09/05/quentin-tarantino-on-his-new-role-running-the-shows-at-new-beverly-cinema originally shared by n_l in the GBU IB Technicolor Print thread)

well, I assume this is the version of FOD DJ and I will be seeing at MoMA Thursday night.

anyway, we'll have to keep an eye out for whether there are three extra minutes. But the version of FOD that we in America have always seen is 100 minutes long, and the MoMA says this movie will be 99 minutes long, so I doubt we'll be in for an extra three minutes. (I'm not concerned about the 1-minute difference between 99 and 100; that may be attributable to longer or shorter production-logo scenes, etc. But if it really is 99 minutes long, then that notion of an extra 3 minutes is bullshit.)

Anyway, we'll find out... I haven't seen the movie in the past few months, but I've seen it many times, so I am sure that between DJ and I, at least one of us will notice if even a shot is different, nevermind 3 whole minutes

DJ and I are in theater now at MoMA watching restored FOD. I don't like the color at all. Yellow and blue Sad My favorite version of the movie is still the Italian Ripley's BRD
There are about 125 people in the theater, they seem to be enjoying the movie, laughing in all the right places Smiley
