A Fistful of Dollars / Re: Deleted FISTFUL OF DOLLARS scene

Great stuff, thanks for posting.

In trying to find out more, I stumbled across a Carlo Simi facebook page that had this photo of La Callahora I've never seen - the tarmac road is there, but the buildings that can be seen are still standing and complete. Will try and post it here, or add as an attachment. The facebook page is  at

Who the hell is "Wallace"?

Persumably Mario Brega's character, Cpl Wallace?

Looking at the review from Mondo, looks washed out to bejaysus to me... still yellow

The pictures I've seen over the last few years show there is not much left. I think it was some wood poking out of a brick base.

Interestingly, I looked at the Google Earth link, it looks like there must have been an airstrip there - you can see pretty clearly what look like the remains of two runways (or maybe one runway and a taxiway). And one of the tiny nearby roads is "Old Airport Road". I wonder if that had any bearing on their decision to film at that spot, assuming it was still functioning in 1968 (maybe easier getting people & equipment in)... Gotta have a trawl around the Interwebs!

Edit - lol, that didn't take long - looks like it was / is this one, opended in 1958 and possibly still viable

And here is another post that compares these very screen caps against the Italian Blu Ray....

OK; so i messaged Kino Lorber Studio Classics via Facebook regarding all things yellow, and here is how it went:

Me: Can you tell us if the new GBU Blu-ray will be yellow tinted like the last MGM effort? Thank you
Kino Lorber:   we're working on this issue.

Me: Thank you very much, that is indeed good news. I see only blue skies ahead! The life of this film is in your hands - we need no yellow, and the original mono soundtrack. You have a *real* chance here to make this release beyond definitive. Its life is in your hands...

So... it could be good news, lets hope so   ;D

(the bold / underscore is my emphasis)

According to a post on Kino Lorber Studio Classics Facebook page (

"The disc will have the full version of the "skeleton scene" (without audio) which L'Immagine Ritrovata found when working on their 4K restoration"

I'm trying to find out about the pi$$ yellow situation.

Just noticed in Peter Hanley's GBU book there's a still from the Sad Hill cemetery scene where  a crew member is holding a microphone too.

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  :)

Film Locations / Re: Request: exact leone locations in Monument Valley

The carriage ride begins  where the "road" around the valley starts from, as you enter the National Park. Its a dirt track (or at least it was 10 years ago) but people can drive around in their BMWs and Winnebagos. You can also take a Navajo guided truck-ride, which will take you past the main formations (two sisters, totem pole, john ford point) all of which feature in the carriage ride. I did post some photo comparisons on here many years ago, not sure where they are now. The "bar" is no longer there, just some bricks and pieces of wood. Look for Herve Attia's "now and then" videos on Youtube. The guy's a master!

Once Upon A Time In The West / Some more behind-the-scenes shots

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

I have this one - it will probably be cheaper for you to buy from Italy directly:

I believe that this is the re-release of the red box one (be careful as the DVD version and the BD version have the same box) without all the supplementary stuff in the box that I don't care for anyway.

Novecento, does that one have the English Mono soundtrack? I have the red box DVD and want to get the Blu-ray without re-buying the box. Although both are Ripley's Home Video, I'm not sure the single-disc Blu-ray has the English mono track. Thanks  O0
