The point is that it is not essential to the plot. What i can't understand is why united artists removed the scene with angel eyes at the confederate fort but kept in the gunsmith scene. The former is essential to the plot

They probably though it was a bit redundant with the Father Ramirez mission wounded sequence would be my guess.

well the confederate fort scene is even more important than the Mission San Antonio scene, which tells you about Tuco's character and family background but plot-wise has no bearing on anything that happens once they leave the Mission. All they had to do was show them entering and exiting the Mission, maybe a minute inside to let you know Blondie is recuperating, and that's it.

I'm not saying the Mission San Antonio scene isn't important. I prefer that nothing was cut. But between the mission scene and the confederate fort scene, the latter is more important to the plot. otherwise, we see angel eyes as some dude looking for gold, and suddenly, miraculously, he shows up as captain of the very prison camp where the other 2 people who are looking for the very same gold are. that would be quite a coincidence

I think the confederate fort scene is also important because it shows Angel Eyes as someone with a bit of humanity.

The gunsmith scene is one of the best scenes of the film. One of those which makes the film work.

Cutting this scene out means cutting the heart of the film out. (Well the Brits cut it out ...)

The Brits cut out a lot of shit. their version was 148 minutes, so that means it was missing an extra 13 minutes on top of the American cuts...
