Is there a new restoration of his playing at Cannes?
http://www.cinetecadibologna.it/news/n_150
Here's the relevant passage:
Quote
Venerdì 16 maggio, ore 21.30, Cinéma de la plage
FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (Per qualche dollaro in più, 1965) di Sergio Leone
Restauro realizzato al laboratorio L’Immagine Ritrovata da Cineteca di Bologna, Leone Film Group. Si ringrazia Alberto Grimaldi

That's the question!
Is this the answer?

Well, don't tease us Mike! Smiley What did he think? Did it have the extra bits and pieces like the beating scene intact?

Was it color graded to look like urine?

We have already discussed the awful piss "restoration" of GBU. And there was a piss "restoration" at Cannes several years ago of FOD, and it seems that is going to be released on disc now by KL http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=13018.0

Did we ever clarify if there was also a Cannes piss "restoration" of FAFDM?  There was some confusion about it earlier in this thread.

Anyway, as noted in the thread I just linked to in the first paragraph of this post, it seems that the new FOD disc is going to be the 2014 restoration, but this new FAFDM disc will be a new restoration. So hopefully the FAFDM will not involve piss.  Of course, if you all who are in contact with KL on their message boards want to start harassing them now about it - to make sure they do not follow the piss pallette - maybe that would be productive  Afro Afro

Anyway, I'm not dying for a new version of FAFDM. The MGM BRD of FAFDM looks nice and has great bonus features. Some people prefer the Mondo, though that does not have English audio.

If you forced me to name my single-favorite movie of all time, it would be FAFDM. And I'd be happy to watch that MGM disc for the rest of my life Smiley

Which may not be all that long. Be careful what you wish for. Evil

If I remember correctly, the MGM release of FAFDM was actually the only one presented really well in their original BD box set.

It appears that although they marketed the 2014 Italian release as a restoration of the trilogy, they only did 4k scans of FOD and GBU (and made them both green/yellow). It looks like from the stills on this page linked below that they used the old scan of FAFDM.

http://distribuzione.ilcinemaritrovato.it/per-qualche-dollaro-in-piu

Currently the only way to get this movie uncut is to buy the German version, the Italian version is still cut by a few seconds during the beating scene. The German version uses some poorer quality materials to fill in the missing material, but at least it's complete.
