Sorry, MGM in its infinite wisdom has decided that a better trilogy would be FOD/FAFDM/FOD.

I dunno... i prefer OUATTR... but duck you sucker is definitly better than fistful of dynamite... which i'm surprised isn't the title they are putting it with the other fistful movie.

maybe we should contact MGM and tell them NOT to call it fistful of dyn. A friend of mine who was brought up in France only knows it as Once upon a time..the revolution. Because thats what they called it there. Once upon a time or duck you sucker are better than Fistful.

I think because they are marketing it with the two real "dollar" films they want to tie it into the package. The big enchilada is the dinero the money. I suppose they could of put it all in a "Once Upon a Time" Package too, and they probably will eventually, lol.

I've always thought that Duck You Sucker sounds like the title of a silly comedy, and that it's totally wrong for the film. Fistful Of Dynamite is better, but not much. It should be released as Once Upon A Time...The Revolution.

In France, the original title is "Once upon a time...the Revolution", so the mistake doessn't exist. Nobody in France knows the other titles (the non Leone fan of course!!!).

I think the best title for it in the first place would have been Once Upon a Time in Mexico. That "... the revolution" looks a bit odd and still doesn't really fit with the other OUT films which based on places.

Plus it really pisses me off Robert Rodriguez called his 3rd Mariachi film OUAT in Mexico. I haven't seen it, but it's supposed to be worse than desperado, and I thought that was a crock of shit.

How come so few non-Leone "Once upon a time..." flims never live up to the standard of the original OUT trilogy? OUT in China is the only one I've seen that I like.

The three films will never come out in a box set, because they all have different distributors.

...West has Paramound
...Dynamite has MGM/UA
...America has Warner

A fistful of dyanmite was invented by MGM in an attempt to cash in after the film had Bombed under the title Duck, You Sucker. Once upon a time... the revolution was invented by the French, Song of the dead (Todesmelodie) is the title in Germany. I prefer Dynamite as it really is the film in a nutshell, even if the pun is a little corny

every film should be titled in its original language!  often, every attempt to change a title, so it sounds good for the audience, SUCKS!    for instance, italian distributor titled "Citizen Kane" by O. Welles as "Quarto Potere" ...if I try to translate it''s like "fourth power"   Shocked

  Duck, You Sucker isn't the right title for the movie, I prefer OUATITR, but I love when Coburn says it in the movie for the first time.

  That big grin and then Steiger realizing what is going on.  Great stuff.

It could have been worse. Leone may have convinced himself that SUCK YOU DUCKER was a common expression on the lips of every English speaker.
