Your welcome! Good Criterions, I also recomend the new 2 disc edition of M, the Naked Lunch and Videodrome Criterions, as well as any Noir you can get your hands on.

I'm waiting to see the Companeros DVD(i have the VHS) but i think the Mercenary is the better of the two.Theres more action and a bit less waffle about the pacifism etc,Jack Palance is even more brilliant as the (gay?) Curly and overall i think Morricones score is stronger,more varied and substantial.

u know it wasnt until i read in a review somewhere that CURLY was gay that i actually thought about him being a homosexual. it never once crossed my mind.

I voted Leone.  Corbucci had some really cool ideas, but didn't have the camera sense of Leone.

I voted Leone. Corbucci made some great spaghettis such as Django, Great Silence, Navajo Joe, The Mercenary, etc. but his cinematography cannot stand up to Leone's. Besides, Leone's films are much more enjoyable and his characters are much more three dimensional. Not even Franco Nero can replace Clint Eastwood.

There's no doubt that Leone is the top man,but not by that much!I'm not going to argue about cinematography-probably because i'll get out of my depth!-but i think some of Corbucci's  storylines and characters,Nero as the Pole/Swede,Milian as Vasco,Palance brilliant as Curly are as entertaining as Leones.
In reply to your last sentence,equally i feel that Eastwood could not replace Nero in some of his roles!
