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.

WRONG! It was actually Cheyenne taking a dump while riding on Morton's train. Just before saving Harmonica, he had some other business to attend to... :D

I'm pretty sure he didn't bother to wipe. That's just a rumor.

Giving this topic some serious thought: I would think that any three-and-a-half hour version, if it exists at all, was probably Leone's rough cut and not something he felt was prepared for release. We know thanks to Frayling and others that there were many scenes scripted (and some of them filmed) that, if inserted into the film as is, would conflict or make redundant material in the existing cuts of the film (repetitious dialogue and plot exposition, for instance). Leone's director's cut was about 175 minutes, give or take, unless I'm mistaken, so I doubt the missing footage was material he wanted in the final film. Based on what I've read on the subject, the only deleted scenes I particularly want to see are the beating scene (maybe not put back in the film, but at least as an extra) and the confrontation between Harmonica and Morton just before Cheyenne's rescue of Harmonica ("I'm Frank's boss"/"Does Frank know that?"). The other scenes would probably be interesting as curios and little more.
