Photo taken on Sept 2005:



 Also, I wanted to correct the fact that in Frayling's book, I wrongfully mentioned that the arch collapsed in the mid 90's, but it's really in the mid 80's, that was my mistake. Sorry 'bout that

I even found parts of bricks and some of the wooden beams more than half a mile away and about 500 fts off the dirt road that leads to the arch. Pretty amazing.

Cusser's right, not much change as I was there a little more than one year now. But what I don't understand, Christopher Frayling's Someting to do with death mentioned that the top part collapsed in the mid 90's. I would have like to see a pic of the arch still complete!

of course not. but after more visitors  start stealing from the arch (which is illegal mind you) then there wont be anything left in a few years.

I hate to sound like a prude but I just have a thing about others not able to enjoy something because of somebody elses selfishness. I dont give a crap if its illegal or not. I just care for those others that have yet to enjoy the arch.


Firecracker, I understand that one could be afraid that this piece of history will disapear soon. But let me tell you my point of view. The arch was built for the movie and the top part felt down in the mid 90's according to Frayling. I was there on September 2005 and, like Cusser mentioned, there was lots of broken bottles of Budweiser everywhere, even into the pillars of the arch. Obviously, that was done by some ignorant people who had no idea what that place is. I am sure it felt down not because of natural reasons but because of some idiots (not from the fans, that would be really stupid). I felt bad for the mess there was, showing a lack of respect of this place, but as I said, I was there in September of last year and on top of one of the piling (The left one) there was an engraving on the top brick (Wayne 1/96). That means it is intact since then, no one took bricks from the remains.



 I can say that since I saw the remains, but I understand your point and I would say the same If I would have not seen the arch. Sorry again for my poor english.

In Christopher Frayling's Book Something to do with death, it is mentioned that it's been designed and created by Carlo simi and his team. I also read somewhere (maybe on this forum) that Fonda even wrote his name in the cement of one of the tracks for the back travelling shot, but, of course, the cement has some edges missing, so there goes away the signature !!

23
All the movies mentioned at Goulding's were all american directors, that's what I noticed then. Only a page on the wall of the museum, cut from a 1969 newspaper mentioned a line or two about Fonda and the upcoming movie OUATITW, but nothing else. Quite strange for one of the best western ever.

Sandman, look at this post. I went to Monument Valley last year and followed exactly this path and it pointed me directly to the arch.

I've seen it and believe me, when you are there, you can't believe Sergio Leone and Henry fonda were there! As I posted in previous posts, I sat there, in indian position in front of the arch, with my laptop playing the DVD with the final scene. That was one moment in my life I will never forget.

Guys, you need the complete soundtrack. there, you will find a total of 21 tracks, the last one called "IL Triello" The Trio last 7:14 Minutes. I have it and really don't regret it.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005EF9Y/002-1670679-9613663?v=glance&n=5174

 The only track really missing in this one is a track called "The last partnership", but a good fellow here gave it to us in MP3 and I've included it in the complete edition

Leone Admirer, I'm the one who apologize, my reply was for Dave Jenkins when he mentioned that it look like the new CD soundtrack. You're right Dave and you should order it. Or better, I can put it on Emule for all of those who would be interested. But hey, a definitive edition on DVD, that would be something, even though the actual DVD has some interesting bonuses. Let's see if they're gonna release it for the new HD-DVD or Blue Ray.

That's right, that's what I said in my previous post, this is from the definitive edition soundtrack, not a DVD but movie soundtrack. Enjoy!!
