Strangely enough, I'm gonna miss my newbie status when I lose it, because  I saw all these films when they were first released in US, and find it chucklesome to be called a newbie on these films. Got burned out on westerns for a few decades , until I noticed they don't attempt to even make them now. Now I'm hooked on them again. Go figure. It's like running into an old girlfriend, and thinking "wow" she's really hot!

I know what you mean, I saw all three around 67/68 too, and it seems that over the last 30 years what Westerns that are made are evolving back to what they were pre Leone.

Have you ever seen any of the contemporaries of Leone's Spaghetti Westerns in their uncut widescreen presentations? Some of them will give you the same sence of wonderment amd feelings that Leone's films gave you when you were a kid. But beware there are good DVD's and very poor DVD releases out there.

Fortunately, and unfortunately, Leone takes up most shelf space in genre, leaving little chance to see re-released versions of his contemporaries. Like Tonino Valerii, & Petroni, but very hard to find except bad print bargain bins. Westerns in general get short shrift in the market, look how long it took to get good prints of Pat Garret and Duck, You Sucker.

SPO Japan made some very good but $$$$$ SW collections. You can find out of print DVDr's on Ebay sometimes.

But the easier ones to find on Amazon are from Blue Underground and Anchor Bay.

Vamos a Matar Companeros
The Great Silence
Keoma

come to mind there are others.

Not to change the subject, but I saw the original TV broadcast of Fistful with the legendary tagged-on beginning. Years later, seeing it again, I thought I had just imagined seeing it. Was wondering if there's a print out there with it , even in extras. Has anyone else seen it? Where in forum would I ask?

Saw more than I can remember now. Most of them were on double and triple bill 50cent all-you-could-watch theaters. Back in the day, you could roam the theaters, if you got bored with this western, you walked over to the biker movie, and so on. Eventually, they shut that down because kids were sneaking into the "R"s and "M"s(pre-Xs).

Sounds like sw heaven to me! Smiley

Shame that non of the great non-Leone Italian westerns stuck in your mind,and i'd go along with CJ's recommendations. Smiley

Oh , they stuck in my mind, but there was so many good films in that era, you kind of got sensory overload. Foreign films got a lot more play than they do today, unfortunately. That, plus I was younger, and Leone was the bomb, all others paled by comparison. You couldn't watch OUTW and then Django. Now I judge them more objectively.

Actually, I believe the "M" designation was replaced by "PG."

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

I think M went to X with Midnight Cowboy, grindhouse & drive-in fare usually was R, and everything else was G. They started building the sub-ratings (PG,XXX) from there.

None here has named Kinski  Angry.
And yes, like Cusser, I cry (or get on the verge of tears) each time I listen to the COlonel after duel's lines.
The final duel to me ranks as the best single moment of L.'s cinematography, higher than Ecstasy of Gold.

I don't actually cry (some other stuff gets me very close -us Englishman are not really allowed to show our feelings so i have to try not to cry-you Italians are lucky Titoli) but yes those interchanges with Eastwood are very touching.And final duel has a bigger emotional impact than GBU.

This scene has an impact on me because, as almost with every SW I saw at the movies, it was with my father, who's gone forever some years ago. Apart from the emotion of the scene itself, I can't but think about him (I remember he was sitting on my left when I saw this in the theatre a 100 yds from my home in 1965 or 1966 ) whenever I watch it.
