What's the URL again? I went to amc.com and got some advertising company. I'd be happy to suggest DYS to AMC if I knew where to make the suggestion........

You know it seems real odd in the UK that the USA has so little exposure to DYS its been shown over here for years on TV and is always included in BBC2 spag seasons, in fact they have shown it so many times over the years that  before the delux edition came out on DVD I had four different versions on VHS taped from television.
Whats even more odd for the USA is the fact that reguardless of it being a Leone movie a line up with Steiger and Coburn should have seen it on your TVstations a whole lot more than has been indicated through posts on here.
Maybe due to the butcher job the movie got when released did not help nor the silly names for it,
Duck you Sucker is not a great title for this type of film nor is the cop out Fistful of Dynamite.
If they had stuck with Once Upon A Time it would have done better

WHY?
It seems it could have been that way here, but when released it did well in the theatres and gets good ratings on TV re runs.
Lets have your thoughts on why DYS could not be advertised for the US public

its way passed time for a re release for the movie, what I want to get some insite to is why could the film not have been marketed in the USA at the time it was made.

WHY?


For the same reason OUATIW bombed here...it's too slow.

Also the film is very dark and melancholy perhaps a bit to depressive for a "western". It also has hints of the "arts and farts".

It was auctioned off as a simple comedic adventure but it most obviously is'nt.

i dont think its way passed.I mean half the people that love The Godfather never heard of OUATIA.So i think that if they ever re-release it.It would be better late than never.

I doubt there will ever be a re-release.

Just look forward to the SE dvd coming in (hopefully Roll Eyes ) 2007.

Or you could just plunk down for a region free dvd player and get it over seas.
