The fantastic CineArchive site has just posted these on-location shots - I've not seen some of these, intrigued by the first one clearly showing a microphone recording sound (maybe they were recording sound on-set at that point?)

See and for more. Also  :)

Scroll down a bit, some great behind-the-scenes shots, looks like they're taken from various French magazines of the late 60's.

Duck, You Sucker / DYS - Film and Illustrated Lecture in Dublin
« on: October 30, 2011, 02:01:11 PM »
Irish Film Institute, Dublin 1st November 2011

"To mark the 40th anniversary of Sergio Leone’s Irish-themed epic of the Mexican Revolution, the IFI is delighted to welcome Sir Christopher Frayling, the director’s biographer and author of the first full-length study of the Italian Western, who will give an illustrated lecture on Leone’s fascinating and frequently overlooked retort to the political Westerns of the late 1960s. Using excerpts from such films as John Ford’s The Informer (1935) and The Quiet Man (1952), Frayling will show how Leone’s film can be seen as a response to the American’s romantic vision of Ireland, as well as a commentary on Mussolini’s Italy, events of the Second World War, and the political turmoil of the 1970s.

Also in attendance will be director John Boorman, who assisted Leone in finding the Wicklow location used in the film’s complex and ambiguous flashback sequences. The lecture and discussion will be followed by the first Irish screening of the restored version of A Fistful of Dynamite."

And according to
"Anyone fortunate enough to be within a day’s ride of Dublin on Tuesday, 1 November, should saddle up bright and early to catch the Irish Film Institute’s 40th anniversary presentation of Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dynamite, to be introduced by Leone biographer and Spaghetti Western top-gun, Sir Christopher Frayling. Also participating in the event will be director John Boorman, who assisted Leone in finding the locations used in the film’s Irish flashback sequences, and Ireland’s top special-effects expert, Gerry Johnston, who worked on the action scenes shot in Toner’s pub in Dublin’s Baggot Street.

Frayling, whose last appearance at the IFI (introducing Once Upon a Time in the West) was the highpoint of the 2000 season, will use extracts from such films as John Ford’s The Informer (1935) and The Quiet Man (1952) to examine Leone’s response to Ford’s romantic vision of Ireland and Irish history, as well as casting an eye on the political Spaghetti Westerns of film-makers such as Damiano Damiani, Sergio Sollima, and Giulio Petroni. Also included will be rare footage of Leone directing the opening sequence of A Fistful of Dynamite. "

Thought this might be useful to share maybe?

First off, Los Albaricoques: - Duel ring from "FFDM" - Agua Caliente entrance ("FFDM") - "Adios Amigo" ("FOD"), various bits of "FFDM"

Estacion de La Calahorra (Flagstone set remains - "OUTITW") - the station itself

I'm sure we could have some fun with this - I have to bail now, but will add more later...

I'v no idea if anyone has seen these before, but I just stumbled on these and I'm still trying to pick my jaw up from the floor - photos of great locations (La Calahorra, Texas Hollywood, Mini hollywood, Western Leone etc) taken in the 1980s. All in French, but the pictures just go on and on.... amazing stuff:

Not really sure if this is the right place for this, but DeAgostini (purveyors of weekly DVD / Magazine offerings) are running a series on Westerns, and will feature TGTBATU and OUATITW. May be interesting.... - The first one (Magnificent Seven) is already out in my local newsagent.

Throughout August, details here:

Includes an extended run of TGTBTU, as well as the first two "...Dollars" films.


General Discussion / Fan preservation edit(s) on the go
« on: August 06, 2006, 05:40:51 AM »
Hi everybody,

Just (recently) found out that there are one or two people doing their own "Special Editions" of their favourite films using the best elements available to them. It seems to have started over at the Star Wars ( ::) ) site at, and has stretched to many other (non Star-Wars) films.

Long story short - there's a guy there thinking of doing "Fan Preservation" edits of FFOD, FFDM and GBU. He may well have already done some of them. These would include extended scenes and original mono soundtracks.

Not sure how you could get them (if at all), but typically these things might end up on BitTorrent sites such as, or maybe blanks-and-postage would be applicable. For what its worth, I recently got hold of a Hi-Def "Fan Preservation" of "Blade Runner" this way (BitTorrent), sourced from a recent Hi-Def TV broadcast, and it was just superb. Loads of extras with it too.

Anyways, if you fancy keeping an eye on whats going on with these, heres a direct link:

Various elements are involved, eg, Italian DVDs, SE DVDs, and the all important mono soundtracks.

Looks kinda interesting....
