"Two Magnificent Tramps"  ???

I don't see myself shelling out money to go see a movie with that title.  I'd wait for AMC to show it on cable  ;)

Hey, Mann ohne Namen!

When you blow into that souvenir harmonica that came with the deluxe box set, does it sound even remotely like Bronson's harmonica sounds in the movie?

I've never been able to re-create the movie's harmonica sound on any real-life harmonica I've ever tried...

Something worth checking out . . .

Just a point of interest.
In the UK, Once Upon A Time in The West is currently among the Top 30 films sold by Choices Video.
This is a huge compliment for a movie almost 40 years old.

Top 30 - that's very impressive.

Here in the States, Citizen Kane was on TCM last night at the same time as GBU on AMC.  Was flipping back and forth during the endless commercials on AMC, weird juxtaposition.  

Citizen Kane didn't really get any critical respect until the 70's.  That's when everyone and his brother started putting it on their list as greatest film of all time.  During the 60's no one knew the film existed.  

To be honest, I can't sit through an entire Citizen Kane anymore.  Kind of dull.  However - GBU, OUATITW, OUTIA, I don't care how many times I've seen them I never get tired of watching it again.  

Does the XY chromosome carry a Leone gene that requires regular and repeated exposures?   His films work on a real visceral and subconscious level that's hard to explain.  Morricone has a lot to do with it.

That's my standard for a true classic - how many times can you watch it?  I haven't capped out yet on the above 3 films after 30+ years of viewing (now my wife, we won't get into that.  Philistine...)

When put into the perspective of when it was made, Citizen Kane really blows me away.  I wouldn't call it the best film ever made, or even one of the best 10, but it's fascinating to watch, mostly as a technical achievement.  Thing is when people see it the first time they've already heard all their life that it's The Greatest Film Ever Made and get sorely disappointed.

Sorry to go further off topic...
