Someone has posted below Erickson's review about seeing a longer version of 120 mins on a German channel in 1999.  The extra stuff included the scene where he steals the poncho from a soldier by the river and a longer beating scene. He posted this3 years ago. When did the outtakes  surface...4 years ago?

https://www.facebook.com/notes/ripleys-home-video/a-fistful-of-dollars-re-restored/10152425272305056

Ok, I copied that comment for you SLWBers:

" You people don"t understand this is-NOT THE DIRECTORS CUT !! where is the directors cut witch i saw in the summer of 1999 on the German chanel Pro 7 ? all the dvd bluray all of them are CUT versions ! the film is not 99 min is about 120 min !!!! now the film opens with Clint stealing a poncho from a mexican next to a river,only after that opening title arrives and we see the map of Mexico ,the characters name is not Joe is Ray he is a confederate sargent ! after the sun shot when the opening titles end we see the mules feet walking trough the desert only after that we see him arrives at the fountain witch the scene is much longer when he drinks water he takes his time ..only after that wee see the scene where Marisol is rushing fat at the window to see what is going on, another scene cut is where Clint meets Piripero the coffin maker at the beginning of the town and they chat for a while < another scene cut is where the Rohos and Baxters are meeting siting at a dinner table , another scene cut is after the Marisol and Baxters son exchange is where Clint is siting in his poncho with no hat in the street and talks to Silvanito only after that the exchange begins , another scene is the Rohos party there mexican girls come and dance and Clint gets drunk with about 5 glasses of tequila and lands in Chiho's lap only after that he caries him drunk up the stairs .., another scene is the beating of Clint witch begins by showing the Rohos boots and Ramon's men are kiking Clint in a circle by punching him and Rubio rips his hand shirt of only azfther that wee see they trough him in that basement .. another scene cut is where Silvanito and Piripero take Clint to the cave and they take care of his broken arm only afther thet wee se him training with his gun, another scene is the opening duel where it begins with about 5 dynamite explosions not with just two.. only after that the duel music begins with is much longer then the cut versions .. now this version i am sure Tarantino has it because i saw his inspiration of the beating scene in Death Proof where the girls are beating Kurt Russel at the end of the film well that is exactly the cut beating scene of Clint in the film ..! ho has this version ? why people dont know about it ? they all saw the cut dvd or bluray bow shit cut versions ! this Cannes restoration is shit cos they should had restore the film WITH ALL THE MISSING SCENES !"

That's irritating, because I doubt that is is true. Actually it can't be true, otherwise this version would be known in Germany by everyone interested in westerns. But I never heard about such a version. And where should it origin from?
The German theatrical version is just the same as released a dozen times on home video, with the usual 100 min runtime.

And if such a version existed in whatever country, there's no doubt that we all would long knew it. And possess it.

Got the disk. The Marisol documentary is great. Great interview. Lots of great stills as well in the still gallery-many of which I've never seen and I've been collecting Leone stills for a long time. The outtakes are the same as released in 2014, the YouTube video put out to celebrate the re-release in Italy... So no new outtakes, or even the different ones on the Ripley's. No full alternate opening, only the same snippets.

Trailers from hell uses the Italian trailer in terrible quality. Too bad they didn't just include it from the Ripley's. All the other trailers are still at 15fps.

The movie looks like someone slapped a hipster Instagram filter on it. It's so contrasty it's hard on the eyes, the blacks are crushed. Haven't watched the whole thing yet.

Careful. You may be accused of being a hipster if you get through the entire feature.

Is being a hipster better than being an armchair critic? Hmmm

Great work Jordan.  It clearly shows the difference  when you seem them all together like this. I had heard that the Ripley is a wider picture which this confirms. Can see also that the MGM is cropped more top and bottom.
Best in order...
1 Italian
2 Jap/Germ
3 MGM
4 Kino

No problem, yes the Ripley has more picture area overall except for the shots with flashing at the bottom of frame, they zoomed those in quite a bit in this scene...but that's understandable since they are trying to hide a flaw of the original negative.

I put together a quick video that shows some of the alternate footage that's been released on Italian dvd/web compared to the original.
