He was typically good in the often gruff roles he played, of which "...Dynamite" is one of my favorites.

One of my favorite memorable lines from him came in Maverick: "I have two-pair: eights...and eights." :)

He'll be missed...

What can I say...I'm an oddball, TP is an oddball series, perfect match!

But lest I wander too far afield of the topic here...

Would there be some difficulty in creating an all-Leone box set? The "No Name" set was perfect in that Universal(?) owned all three of those, but with Paramount owing OUATITW and who-knows-who owning FoD and OUATIA, imagine the legal hassle to throw it all together.

Since I already have the first three, I would be content to get the others separately.

Yeah, everything I've heard about the prostitute scene has been about GBU.

For this, I was just lucky in that I have two versions of the film. :)

For a Few Dollars More / FaFDM DVD - Missing scene?

I keep forgetting to ask this, and I don't know if it was ever brought up on the old board, so here goes...

I thought I saw something missing in the DVD version in the scene where Indio and his gang are beating on Monco and Mortimer. At first, Indio is the only one laughing at the scene, but soon the other bandits join in. But then Indio stops laughing, his smile fades into a frown...and then the cut comes.

On the VHS version I have, Indio leaps down from the wall, yelling at them to stop it. He also tells Nino to tie them up in a side room. When one of the others asks Indio why he wants them to remain alive, that's where the cut ended, as Indio asked what the El Paso sherrif was doing at that point.

So why didn't the DVD have that little snippet? ???

Tempting idea indeed...but a bit hard on the pocketbook. If it became a reality, and I had to choose between it and a Twin Peaks Season Two set...what would I do?!?  :D

I've REALLY taken to Dario Argento. Suspiria and Deep Red were both excellent, Tenebre wasn't as good (IMHO) but still entertaining.

Perhaps not in the same league as the others, but I still enjoyed it for what it was. Very delightful soundtrack, and Steiger and Coburn were both fun in their roles...just don't mention the "accents."  ;)

BTW, while most talk is on a OUATITW DVD (which I want!!!), what news (if any) about FoD? I have the VHS, but would be happy to see it in a cleaned-up and letterboxed format. Would they be able to use the same sources for the laserdisc, or would it need more work?

Very effective scene indeed.

Actually, I think the feeling begins as soon as Blondie and Tuco cross the river and see all the Confederate corpses lying around. Ennio's music is very effective here; the male choir mingled with the strings sounds incredibly sad. Then as it moves into "Story of a Soldier" for the cloak scene, it's easy to get choked up.
