Check out Day Of The Outlaw if you haven't yet

I saw the LAST scene of that and have always intended to go back and watch the whole movie. I will do that and give a review. Thanx...

Don't say TGS is a remake of that one.

But I'm sure Corbucci knew Day Of The Outlaw. Took some of it's atmosphere (and especially the costumes), transformed it ...

Very enlightening response. Thanx.  Getting back to Alex.  Alex said that The Great Silence was filmed in late 1967 and from your research, early 1968.  My point is that Robert had enough time to see that script IF thats actually what happened.  There is too much similarity there for it not to be the case.  As far as the comparison to A Few Dollars More its obvious from Robert himself and his acknowledgment of Sergio Leone that he borrowed ideas from that film.   


Of course directors take things from other films, borrow ideas, or even steal them. I have no problem with that. Even when they steal, as long as they steal good. But the connections you make with TGS are too common to make much sense. And that a French director had read an Italian screenplay from a then not well known director, who made mostly minor films, is extremely far fetched.

And I still have no idea why you compare both films so close. I still don't think that they have much in common.

The things Hossein maybe took from FaFDM are maybe indeed taken from Leone, but even then they are so differently used that I see more differences than similarities. E.g. Eastwood's smoking underlines his coolness, while Hossein's smoking is nothing of that.

When I watch A Stranger in Town, yes, than it is obvious that without Fod this would most likely never have been made. But it is still more than a mere copy though.

At the end of the day, to me The Great Silence is a excellent film and Robert's film is pretty good in its own right.  Like you said, whether you take, borrow or steal from another director, make sure its GOOD, lol.  I could be totally wrong and what I'm seeing could be coincidence.  Doesn't really matter in the end...

Wise words.
But I value Hossein more than you do, Une Corde is a film which gets better with every viewing. One of the 10 best Spags, and I prefer it slightly to FoD or FaFDM or Django.

TGS is a very underrated film, maybe because Corbucci made too much crap, filmed too often under his possibilities. But in his best films he made very daring films with some brilliant directing. Leone's weaker films are now praised world wide for the simple fact that they were made by Leone, while Corbucci is a director only known by insiders.

But that happens all the time in art history.
