Thanks for the info, clinton and mike.

It sounds crazy to me that the lots sold for so little money. If it had been sold one at a time and I'd known about it, I certainly could see myself bidding more than $50 each to get 2-3 pictures

Are these pics originals printed from the original negatives in 1966? Approx. anyone know approx. how many copies of each pic were printed?

The prints were probably printed from original negatives. It's a great pity that so many were badly damaged. In relation to the GBU lot, quite a few of the stills are cropped images from medium-format negatives (usually 6 x 6 cm). It is hard to know who actually took which photos, except for the large collection of 35 mm black & white negatives from Angelo Novi, archived at Cineteca di Bologna. In behind-the-scenes stills, you can often see someone with a small (35 mm) or medium-format (6 x 6 cm) camera, and, in at least one medium-format still, you can see someone with a medium-format Rolleiflex camera hanging from his neck. So, there were probably quite a few different people making stills during the shooting. Apparently, Angelo Novi arrived a little late on the set (according to Giancarlo Santi, assistant director). It is not clear (going from memory) whether he took any stills at Elios Studios, Rome, before the film crew headed for Spain. There also doesn't seem to be many color stills around, which is a shame. It is hard to say how many prints were made. Original prints are often stamped FOTO VASELLI ROMA  (common), ANGELO NOVI FOTOGRAFIA (uncommon) or something similar on the back, and the quality is usually very good.

Brutto's 35mm italian print has a few differences compared to all other versions of the film, including part of a deleted scene in the desert. Look for some exciting updates soon as we progress through the restoration and scanning project...
Wow, this is getting more exciting all the time. Can't wait to hear more.

what makes them so interesting to die-hard collectors is the fact that these are from a (probably) unique "selection" set. With handwritten numbers in the corners. A set of approx. 800 or 1000 stills and the publicist then chose the best images for the promo material (press stills sets, blue-prints for lobby cards and poster design etc.). Some of them are well-known for that reason while others never made it into press kits or additional 8x10 stills selections. In those days they took 5000 - 20.000 stills on movie sets,  but 'only' 100 to 1000 were then printed as 8x10 stills in any form, so it is just great to see unused images.

These 3 from that collection are interesting. Probably for reference use in promotional material such as this Poster art by Michelangelo Papuzza which was also on heritage auctions.

Peter Hanley sent out an email today:

Dear All,
 At last, the GBU book has been printed (via a 6-color, sheet-fed Heidelberg Speedmaster offset lithographic press on high-quality 135 g/m2 paper). The print quality is very impressive. The book has been at the bookbinder (Terbeck GmbH) for a couple of weeks and should soon be ready. As soon as the books become available, a shipment will be sent to an Amazon logistics center for distribution.

 Best wishes,
 Peter

I'm pumped for the book!

Also, those super rare gbu photos are listed on eBay, only wants $16,000...I'll stick with the jpgs from the auction unless I win the lottery I suppose.

The book is SENSATIONAL!  JUST GREAT. 1A quality, awesome images, a dream.

At first I thought about taking some pictures and posting them here,
but that is nonsense. If you're a Leone fan and care for film books in any way,
you have to get it. Plain and simple. Support Peter here as well of course,
I must say at first I was afraid it would cost more than 80, 100 or even more,
so the modest price is certainly no reason not to buy it. (go eat less expensive junk food Smiley).

Just ordered my copy. It's available on Amazon Germany only. I checked on Amazon Italy and UK...For those of you interested, I paid 64,95 for the book, plus 8,38 for shipment so 73.33, which in US$ at today's rate of exchange is US$ 83,35. Can't wait.... Wink
