While digging for more info/pics I came across a higher resolution image of Tuco aiming the cannon:

To be honest, what I was laughing at was the the idea of Tuco telling the sheriff that he was an honest farmer at the same time as looking at this photo of him!

Man, I'd be more than happy to sit down and watch a 5 hour version of this movie with scenes like this included.

I'd definitely park my ass on the sofa with some beers and watch a 5 hour version with all of these cut bits re-added but to be honest, my favourite version is the one that I grew up with - the version that we all knew before the 2004 version with all the gunshots re-done etc......

I grew up with the 161 minute version, it wasn't until last year when I decided to revisit TGTBTU [after about 8-9 years] that I watched the extended version [probably the only version I'll now watch].

No.
I can't even believe that Leone actually considered to include such a jokey scene between the dying soldier and the Ecstasy of Gold scene.

And then I do think that films have a perfect length (but opinions may differ which the perfect length is), and when you make it shorter or longer the film begins to lose quality. I'm not even sure if the 161 min version isn't superior to the 174 min version, which was released theatrically in Italy (the MGM version minus the Cave scene).

The Cave scene already hurts the film a bit, as does that scene with Blondie and Sentenza at the campfire.

My preferred version (the famous Stanton cut) would run about 170 min.

there's no doubt that some of the cuts remove pieces of the movie that are unnecessary to the story (and have no great aesthetic value either) but IMO they never should have cut  the scene of Angel Eyes at the Confederate fort. Also, I don't like the idea of cutting parts of the scenes with the drunk Union captain and under the bridge. 
btw, as it is, since they restored the missing scenes with the Union captain (where he talks about liquor being "the most potent weapon in war" and they used a new voice actor to try to copy the voice of whoever did the original English dub of Aldo Giuffre, it's sooooo obvious that it's a different voice, since it's one long scene and suddenly the voice changes. I wonder if it wouldn'y have been better for them to just use a new voice actor to completely re-dub Giuffre's scenes, so that it's all the same voice. On the one hand, that would seem to be wrong cuz you are actually changing the movie as Leone made it; on the other hand, it's not even Giuffre's voice anyway in the English dub, it's some random voice actor, who knows if Leone even chose all the English voice actors who did the dubbing for smaller characters, it was probably some United Artists exec, so is it the end of the world to have another studio exec choose a new voice actor to dub that part in 2003? i'm not sure. I guess people who grew up with the movie for all those years wouldn't like that.

I didn't see GBU until about 2009 or so, and it was the longer cut, (I still don't think I've ever watched the movie in the 161-minute cut), so of course it means something different to me than it does to people who knew and loved the shorter cut for 40 years

I've never had a problem with the cave scene, I think it shows us more of Tuco's character.

I understand why it seemed out of place, maybe because they were used to the 161 minute version, and the different dubbing of Eli Wallach's voice 35 years later.
