Peacemaker.

That flashback is not the final one - that's the one with Villega on the steam engine. I'm talking about the one when Sean is dying and Juan has "gone to get dee help".
Your right, the final scene in some versions of the film is when the 3 are running in the field/garden and Coburn is about to kiss the girl up upon the tree...then he blows up!

Hey Sucker, your interpretation might be different when I tell you this. There are two versions of the final flashback song. There's version 1 that I really like:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDReviews23/a%20sergio%20leone%20a%20fistful%20of%20dynamite/A%20Fistful%20of%20Dynamite%20Old%20Comparison%202.mp3

And there's the new version ( version 2 ) which is still good but inferior to the original:

In case anyone is not aware, the final flashback in the full version does not end when Sean is about to kiss the girl at the tree. It goes on and on and it is during this extended scene that the events unfold as previously described until, eventually, he blows up.

Juan Miranda - very good point you make.

Sorry SeanSeanSean  ( I couldn't resist that  Wink ) but I got that from Dave Jenkins thread about comparing the two DVDs. There is no more music on that site.

I do have the CD but I don't know how I can put that here.

Peacemaker raises a vital question. Since we know that the current SE of the film contains a soundtrack of dubious provenance, how are we to know that the music we are hearing in the final flashback is correct?

While very persuasive when debating with an English speaking audience, this is surely irrelevant when dealing with Leone. Don't forget he was a man who was convinced the phrase "Duck you sucker" was on every English speakers lips, never mind Morricone, who couldn't speak a word of that language.
Surely the relevant issue here is how well Carla Leone understands English, as they are her lyrics. Maybe even more to the point: what is her understanding of how a woman remonstrates with her man?

That is true. The original chants instead of Sean, Sean, Sean were suppose to be Wah, Wah, Wah until Carla suggested Sean instead of Wah.

Peacemaker.
As promised I've uploaded just a couple of photo comparisons to keep you going for the moment. 
And for those who still believe Sergio Leone is the ticket-seller I hasten to add that the reflection in the mirror is not Sergio's ghost  Grin

If you're ever in Dublin you'll get a friendly welcome in Toners. It's old-world maybe but well worth a visit. There is a picture on the wall of Sergio during shooting but the caption describes the film as Duck You Sucker/A Fistful of Dollars!!!

At last I got all the Irish locations (Thanks, Geoman - that tree was it - just up from the castle).

I've uploaded all the pics now including directions on Google Earth for when you all come over to see for yourselves Smiley

I noticed that Prof. Frayling got the locations wrong also in his SL book. I suppose he must have assumed they were in Co. Wicklow because almost every movie shot in this country films there at least in part.

Next stop Almeria!!!! - maybe.

Yes, what an idiot. Perhaps he should go and kill himself from the shame?
