There is a chapter (Chapter Cool titled "Music (Original Score) - Ennio Morricone", which includes short interviews with Ennio Morricone and Domingo Contreras (harmonica player in the Betterville prison orchestra), and a longer interview with Bruno Battisti D'Amario (played the guitar in Morricone's Western scores).

Alessandro Alessandroni kindly supplied a photo of "Il Cantori Moderni", which provided the vocals for the soundtrack.

Thanks to help from Diego Montero (Salas de los Infantes, Burgos), we have identified most of the extras in the Betterville prison orchestra, and there are a lot of behind-the-scenes stills from this sequence etc. There is no analysis of Morricone's GBU score, but this has been very nicely covered in Charles Leinberger's book "Ennio Morricone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - A Film Score Guide".

Hi Clinton,

I'm very excited about the inevitable release of your book. I'm sure it's well worth the wait.

Do you mention anything about the unused portion of track 5 of the expanded soundtrack? I suspect it was intended for the Grotto scene.

Please see reply #23 in the following thread: http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=7016.15

Thanks, I had a look at the thread. The Grotto scene is described in the book with a couple of stills, but I didn't chase up the soundtrack issue. Like a lot of others, I would have preferred to see the Grotto scene as part of the separate bonus material (on a DVD/Blu-ray disk), rather than integrated into the film. It just doesn't fit in nicely.

It would be great if someone in Rome had access to unused takes and deleted scenes etc so that we could see the complete Socorro scene and other deleted/unused material.

First, apologies for the long, long delay.

I have finally updated my website: www.gbu-book.net

The website may occasionally go offline for changes/maintenance.

I had actually never planned to print the book in 2016, 50 years after filming (1966).

The book will be printed in January, and then sent to the bookbinder.

The hardcover book is 417+ pages long (each page 26.5 x 30 cm; 135 g/m2 coated, matt paper) and will weigh around 2.5 kg. It will be distributed via Amazon.

It would be great if you could fill in the "subscribe" field on the website if you are potentially interested in the book. You will receive updates per email etc.

Best wishes,
Peter

Just amazing to think how these photos make you feel isn't it. What was that scene all about? Presumably a bit of "padding" whilst on the way to Sadhill cemetary.

Amazing! I asked Peter some years ago if he was covering this in the book and he said yes.

The Van Cleef shot is also on this Italian program or pressbook.

The scene (just after the prison camp sequence)  is described in the original Italian script, and translated/described in the book (see below). I did not include any stills from this scene -  in fact, I only have one color still from this scene. However, a few stills from this scene turned up at an auction at Heritage Auctions in June/July, 2015. There was a lot with about 180 (mostly rare) GBU stills, most of which were damaged, but around 50 seemed to be in very good condition - the quality of the prints actually looked great. Some of the prints were crops from medium-format stills. I was not the winning bidder, but you can view the stills at Heritage Auctions - search "Sergio Leone" or something similar, and then browse (scroll down) through past auction archives. From memory, there were also lots from FOD and FDM.

The scene continues after the Betterville prison camp sequence:
Prairie landscape with a river. Blondie and Angel Eyes are riding side by side. They come closer together, slow down, and then stop at a river bank. They get down from their horses, and while the horses are drinking, Blondie lights a cigar and says, “What have you got to do with this business?” Angel Eyes sits down on a stone and replies, “It’s a curious story . . .” He takes some smoked meat, bread, and a bottle out of a bag, and continues, “. . . And I happened by chance to come across it . . .” He takes a knife and begins to cut the bread and meat into portions, then extends his explanation: etc

Here's the link to auctions for all 3 movies :

Holy crap! Damn I wish I had know about this auction. There are 3 more stills from the bread scene, at least one new one from the soccoro scene and if you look at the fafdm and for auction there are some more unseen Socorro shots in there too. And you can view the auctions in decent resolution Smiley

Thanks for pointing this out Clinton!
