If they wanted to present it like another "trilogy," I could see going with Once Upon a Time [in] the Revolution (what's up with the ellipses?). Plus, in some ways it did remind me of Once Upon a Time in the West.

But I like the title Duck You Sucker, if for no other reason than the fact that it's dialogue from the movie. I don't care if Leone thought it was a common English expression, it IS common enough in the movie.

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.

hideous thought ... dont know about revolution but that sounds definitely X rated. ;D

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.

I totally agree with Leone admirer and others who think that duck you sucker and giu la testa are not very good titles, may be a fistful of dynamite could be ok but as a purist I prefer once upon a time the revolution: more noble

This has already been argued to death over the last couple of months and in the final poll Duck You Sucker has come out as a clear winner closely followed by Gui La Testa and a fair title would be Duck You Sucker/Gui La Testa-even though i'd like it to remain as it is!
