Hi Guys
   Im kind of a new fan. Last summer i started watching Leone films and I was blown away. Well, this Christmas, my dad got a VHS of OUATIA. I was stunned it was such an awesome movie. Anyways, i got a DVD player for christmas, and so now being the dvd buff i am, Ive been trying to find some sort legitimate copy of the movie on dvd. i know you've listed a few places to get portuguese ones and whatnot, but i didn't know if there are any major editing differences between the 226 minute Warner brothers one i have seen and the foreign versions. I wanted to make sure before i attempt to purchase it. also, i have heard rumors there are even longer versions available in europe. Ive heard 235 and longer, and i even heard someone mention a european 7 hour directors cut which just sounds crazy but i wouldnt put it past them. any info?
thanks guys.

I hope the 7 hours director's cut version really exists: that would be the best news that I ever heard

Welcome to the board! Maybe there is 7hrs of film (that is I think typical for movies?) but I never head that there was a Directors cut.

As far as I know,the 226 min. version is the longest one available.I know there have been rumours of a 250 min.version or even longer,but according to Christopher Fraylings biography of Leone,the extra footage[whicg certainly exists,as is evidenced by occasional stills] which was cut from the film to get it down to 226 mins.was never dubbed and therefore never put back into the film.
wouldn,t it be great if the DVD people found this footage !even without sound it would be great to see,either put into the film as an option or on a seperate disc.
Hope this clears things up[ofcourse Christopher could be wrong-it would be great-no offense to him-if he was]
