New Blu looks fantastic.
Wow, you ain't kidding! And it starts with the UA title card to boot.

It's funny. There are people on this board who contend that this is their favorite Leone, yet they can't be bothered to get a copy of this. Liars. Black liars.

New Blu looks fantastic. Still cut by about a minute, a shame since it's the best the film has looked and the extras are great.

Hopefully someday we'll get this master in Leone's actual released cut.

You are saying this cut is identical to, but the image quality is better than, the MGM BRD?

Here is a link to my first draft of an in-depth analysis of all the home video releases of the film. (8 min) Just looking at one scene, (Manco's entrance) we can see how the edit and sound have been tampered with repeatedly. I look forward to seeing/hearing if Kino has finally restored the film to Leone's intentions.

Yep, pretty much. New Alex cox segment is good and always enjoy Mike Siegel's picture galleries (which full disclosure had a very small part of with another user here, Le Bon.)

Another comparison video posted here with some explanation. If you read earlier in the htf thread, Kino said they didn't include the dialog because it was a" deleted scene".

Also wondering if someone here can help me. I distinctly remember reading a quote by someone who worked with Leone, but I can't find the source.

The quote concerned the beating scene in FAFDM and it was something along the lines of "I begged Sergio to cut down the scene, all those laughing faces just went on and on".

Ring any bells for anyone else?

Great work as usual, JK.

I remember something similar, one of the writers making fun of the beating scene. I think it was Luciano Vincenzoni.

Maybe check the FAFDM chapter in STDWD

Boom, you nailed it. I found it in there and it is indeed by LV. Thanks!
