Have you noticed that the Dollars Trilogy and the Once Upon A Time movies are told differently? I mean in the Dollars trilogy you find the plot probably within 5-15 minutes of the movie while in the OUAT movies you wait till the end to really understand everything (excluding DYS from this because I havent seen it yet). Why is this? Did something happen (creatively) to Leone between GBU and OUATITW?

Well, we never knew why Mortimer was after Indio till the end.

w/ indio we get these first series of flashbacks ala frank. not knowing until the end. frank reminds me of angel eyes in they both were business men stuck in gunslinger's bodys.  :'(

leone is so intence. i can see his brain thinking how can i top the dollar trilogy ? your right joe, something happened to leone's style sort of like when the beatles came out w/ sgt. pepper. clint walks and harmonica appears pulling bullets out of his shoulder. everthing slowed down from 33 1/3 to 1/6 rpms. which was a magnifacent chance leone took and like everything else, he made it so it could never be either duplicated or copied.

and, in keeping w/ the situation, for spotting that 2 second crane shot in OUATITW, of the derelict corrida, remenacent of leone's prior projects, cigar joe, take a bough    O0

5-15 minutes? If I remember well, there's not a single word spoken in GBU until the 10-minute mark, and we're well on 1 hour into the movie before Tuco finds Carson. Now that I think of it, OUATITW is just 4 minutes longer than GBU, so I don't see much of a difference.
