Reports of the restored version playing in the UK are coming in: http://www.eyeforfilm.co.uk/reviews.php?film_id=13595

This particular one is more a straight review of the film that doesn't address the many concerns of this thread, but an interesting review nontheless.

Not only I find this review interesting, but for once it is a review  which I fully agree with. I particularly like the last sentence: "...not just the finest western ever made, but one of the finest films, full stop".
Well done, Mr. Robson!

I have to disagree with one point that has come up often on this message board, and in this thread: The music at the end of the DVD is not really incorrect, the 'Farewell to Cheyenne' theme plays over the credits of ALL existing versions of this film I know of, including the original Italian release. What probably confuses people is that the credits appear sooner in the English/International cut of the film so they had to cut to the theme sooner as a result. Restoring the scene to it's original length is impossible unless you don't mind the film's TITLE and credits sequence being in Italian, which I personally find bothersome.

Ah, that clears things up a bit. Good to hear, as I've always enjoyed Cheyenne's Theme coming back in at the end.

So you mean the credits are in the wrong place - i.e too early?

Sorry, but you're wrong about that one.

In the Italian version, the soundtrack does NOT switch to "Farewell to Cheyenne" theme but remains on the "finale."

Sorry to contradict you but I HAVE the Italian version on DVD. This youtube clip is incomplete, it only shows the title but after that the credits sequence starts over a freezeframe of the last shot with "Farewell to Cheyenne" playing over it.

Yes Cheyenne's theme does come in with the credits on both versions but the credits appear earlier in the International version than in the Italian one.
