if they are releasing it to the public so soon after Cannes, I guess it is safe to assume that they will be showing the Cannes version, and they have not (yet) restored any more footage? (In the French interview that Mat Viola translated on this thread, Scorcese mentioned something about the possibility of restoring  20-25 minutes in addition to the 20-25 minutes that was already restored for Cannes, which would coincide with the 45-50 minutes of extra material that Leone wanted in the movie).

As was previous anounced Sergio Leone children found 40 min of footage, 25 min were restored other scenes have technical issues according to the article, approx 15 min scenes still left, According to Martin Scorsese only copies were founded they could not found original negatives of the missing scenes according to the interview, I believe there is more scenes somewhere lying on the shelf and one day i hope they see the light

I hope they when they release it on dvd, they have all 45-50 minutes of missing footage dvd. But I am certainly not confident of it.

The initial articles that announced this restoration (in March 2011) said that the Leone children bought the Italian rights to the film. I hope that the the restored movie will actually be shown in American theaters and American dvd/blu ray, but am holding my breath until I actually see it announced.

Whether or not you like that restored scene in the cemetery, I think Louise Fletcher's acting in that scene is wonderful.

---

With the part in that scene involving the limo and the license plate (plus the later scene with it blowing up), this movie really seems more like a PI story; in the 229MV, while there of course is the whole element of mystery involving who sent Noodles the letters, I think it seems like much more of the internal, dream-like mystery. For some reason -- maybe it's just cuz I am not used to that scene -- I feel that maybe the limo and writing down the license plate makes it too much of a regular, literal PI story. There are other elements of the scene that I feel are important (eg. some of the stuff with Fletcher,  and the limo blowing up explaining why Noodles cares so much about the news story on the tv at Fat Moe's), but maybe that part with writing down the license plate is a bit overdoing it.

I'd still like to see every minute of deleted footage put back into the four and a half hour or so version of the movie that Leone originally wanted  Smiley
I love the way Leone shot Louise Fletcher. It seemed that she might have something to do with the whole mystery. It was done in a very subtle way. But her acting was a bit stilted.

oh wow, that is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing  Afro Afro Afro

I hope we get some similar experience here in New York. But I am not holding my breath. (I'd be happy with just a normal theatrical release. But considering that all the articles said the Leone children purchased the Italian rights to the film, who knows if we'll even get a theatrical screening here in America).

Man, could people there actually read the subtitles? Some of those folks were sitting pretty far away.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA 1984 RESTORED EXTENDED VERSION Premiere At The Piazza Maggiore A Bologna 2012

C'ERA UNA VOLTA IN AMERICA 1984 Restaurato Piazza Maggiore A Bologna 2012





















































Only disappointment is that it's not in the original aspect ratio 1.85:1 left and right sides are still crop i compare my DVD and HDTV versions to the early restored studio preparation version and the one premiere in italy, sure you can see the difference

Comparison between HDTV - DVD and early Restore Extended versions and Italy premiere

I analyze images measures the first and third image in 1.78:1 the second image in approx 1.93:1

May be it's to early to say i guess theatrical and video release can be different we'll see upon Blu-ray release later
