This is the GBU thread, not Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo one, where the birthday wishes belong.  >:( Of course Dumb Jinx floats away from here, doesn't he?

I hate to keep harping on the same issues all the time. I don't want to come off as a scold. But titoli is right: Eastwood and company didn't even loop their English dialog until the fall of '67. GBU proper didn't hit US theaters until 1968.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

June 1968 for me in Arizona.  Never saw a trailer or TV commercial for it.  We heard Montenegro version on radio, and knew Eastwood from Rawhide.  We didn't know Eli Wallach was in it, knew him from Magnificent Seven.  When GBU titles started, not only was that real different, but my brothers and my friend and I couldn't figure out why almost all the names were Italian.  I was 15, but into film music from films such as Magnificent Seven and Time Machine, so was blown away like 2.25 hours later with Ecstasy of Gold through the end.

Fistful and FDM didn't hit Arizona until months or year later, as a double feature.

That's possible, but not real likely.  My dad was a big fan of westerns, and we did get a daily newspaper and we all read that.  But it is possible.

I have it stuck in my head that GBU premiered in December 1967. IMDB reports a US release date of Friday, December 29, 1967. I know that IMDB info can be erroneous but Roger Ebert's initial review came to mind and that was published on January 2, 1968. I'm sure there are more reviews from the late 60's that should be able to verify this. One of which is New York Times reviewer Renata Adler's scathing review that was published in January 1968. So a late 67/early 68 release seems about right.

I assume most reviews very pretty negative?

In Germany Leone's films, and the Spagies in principle, were viewed as cinematic trash. With OUTW the point of view began to change slightly, but it was Corbucci in 1969 who got some recognition with his political westerns and his bold breaking up of conventions.
