The pee scene is fine... I was just referring to the (three?) fast-motion bits (Drawing faster than his saddle could fall down / slapping in the bar & the soldiers chasing the train. All three could have been done with fast-motion. Fast motion is bad beyond the silent era, except for Jerry Lewis maybe. Btw, Peckinpah did it too... in THE LOSERS & CABLE HOGUE.

Yes - true, it doesn't look good by today's standards.

What's "The Losers" like?

I'm coming around to the idea that Nobody is a Postmodern film (you win this one, stanton (bastard!)). That would mean the two Fonda films form a unit within the Leone oeuvre. I'm OK with that, especially if it puts paid to the notion that there is a Once Upon A Time trilogy. 

There can still be two trilogies, with one title that overlaps. The three Dollars films can still be considered together. The second trilogy--or triptych, actually,as I've already indicated--would be GBU, DYS, and OUATIA. Somehow I feel this is how things are going to be recorded in the Sergio Leone Encyclopedia.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

THE LOSERS is quite interesting. First of all he named the protagonists Dave Blassingame (& his dog "Brown") & Burgundy Smith (as in THE WESTERNER),
the cast is terrific (Lee Marvin, Keenan Wynn, Dub Taylor, Rosemary Clooney) and it is more or less a comedy. It was the first time Sam
used slow-motion, people falling - just like in THE WILD BUNCH. There's some singing in it that is a little bit too much for my taste, but
overall very good. PERICLES ON 31st STREET I prefer though.

You're a basket of deplorables all by yourself.
