from Wiki of all places  :D

Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) - Recut by Paramount from 165 minutes to 145 minutes for U.S. release, restored in 1984. 168 minute and 171 minute versions exist in Italy, and a three-and-a-half hour cut is rumored to exist, with James Woods claiming to have seen it at the Sergio Leone estate.

The main article: List of films recut by studio.

Maybe it's a joke, I dunno. I am very doubtful.

Let's just say, hypothetically, that this version exists. If anything, it's probably an incredibly rough cut that somehow survived 40 years. Even though the validity of this is certainly in question, I thought it was thread worthy. It's interesting, I will say that.

If I had to guess I'd say this is about what James Woods said: "blah blah blah and he showed me another epic masterpiece of his, Once Upon A Time In The West - what is it, three and half hours long? - at his house when we blah blah blah" :D

It's probably just a quirk.

James Woods is one lucky man to have seen that version.

I've seen this version. The extra fottage comprises mostly of a close up of Fonda's face while taking a HUGE crap. Morricone's music for it is BEAUTIFUL! Would've won an oscar if the scene wasn't cut.

Leone had planned on a wipe sequence but was too pressed for time that he wasn't able to film it.
