Just saw  The Spaghetti West. I have never seen the other SWs other than the dollars trilogy, Nobody, Death rides a Horse and OUTIW. The others shown on the documentary were very political and gruesome. Nothing like the Leone Movies. The ear eating scene and the digging for golden bullets in the man's chest were rather disgusting. I never knew of these other Spaghettis. I think I'll stick with Fonda, van Cleef and Eastwood movies

I managed to tape The Great Silence, so I'll be watching that sometime soon.

I saw only a few minutes here and there of The Spaghetti West documentary, since I'd heard they told a little too much information about some of the movies, The Great Silence in particular. I saw where they talked about Django Kill (where they dug for golden bullets), and I have to say I really want to see that movie. Grin The ear scene in Django really isn't all that bad. Nasty, yeah, but I like the violent nature of the movie.

...the one bit some viewers singled out as a highlight that's *not* on the BU discs so far as I know is a short piece of home-movie from Day of Anger, with LVC and Gemma goofing off.

 Shocked Wow!!! Dang, but I'd like to see that!!

Watched this show today. A brief but enjoyable exploration of the genre, interviewing a lot of the genre's movers and shakers (Sergio Sollima, Franco Nero, Tomas Milian, Damiano Damiani) and champions (Frayling, Cox, Hughes). Archive interviews of Clint, Morricone and Sergio Corbucci also cropped up. I most enjoyed the different filmmakers' takes on the phrase "spaghetti western."

I just saw this now for the first time.

A few comments: I've only seen about 5 non-Leone spags. But it's good to see that this documentary actually truly focuses on the SW as a whole, not just Leone. And there are archival interviews with just so many major characters in SW history - whether the filmmakers or the actors (one exception: nothing here from Eli Wallach, who acted in a number of SW's besides GBU).

However, there is a major, major flaw in that it hardly mentions a word about GBU. GBU is by far and away the most legendary, most remembered, most admired SW. Personally, as great as GBU is, I like FAFDM even more. But it's indisputable that GBU is the most famous. Many people who aren't even big cineastes, who rarely watch "old" movies, who have never seen another SW or even heard the term, have seen GBU. To have hardly a mention of GBU and FAFDM (and DYS) is unforgivable.

Otherwise, this is a pretty enjoyable watch.

By the way, the interview footage of Eastwood, I assume is on the set of Unforgiven. In it, he repeats the myth that the Hays Code did not allow shooter and victim to be in same frame. As we've established http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=7532.msg115131#msg115131  that wasn't true if it was, it certainly wasn't a firm rule that was always followed.
