Yes looks like cash in time!!
When i first saw the title on hippieoddball1's post i thought it was the book out now ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE ITALIAN WEST by Howard Hughes, an expanded followup to the POCKET ESSENTIALS: SPAGHETTI WESTERNS by HH. Maybe CF has been holding some info back for this book. We'll see.

Not out yet, apparently, though the cover art for the R2 FOD was discovered and discussed on one of the other SW-centric boards...a stock Clint image, rather than anything special, IIRC.

AAAGHH!!!!   I can't believe they have used the same picture of clint that was on the previous DVD. The face shot is from the climax when Clint is facing Ramon and they added the hat, cigar and gun. FAFDM is not much better...they have changed the position of Clint's rifle from a photo where he is holding the rifle and watch.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Italian version - list of differences
« on: December 13, 2004, 04:42:31 PM »
These are the cuts mentioned in the Video Watchdog article which i posted on here. The Italian version also had just Jill's theme playing at the end and did not have Cheyenne's theme tagged on which was always  jarring to me.

Once Upon A Time In The West / video watchdog article

Has anyone read the VW issue 110 Article on the different versions of OUATITW. It seems short trims to the opening scene totalling 1min which were put back in the U.S. 73 reissue are not in the DVD , and at the end of the movie the reason why cheyenne's theme is played /takes over from Jill's theme. Something which has always jarred with me.

Off-Topic Discussion / Re:Favourite opening credits sequences

My favourite is GB&U.  My No 1 movie it has to be. The most excitiing credits sequence.

Other favourites that come to mind right now are:
Midnight Cowboy. Great music and the way it starts the story of Joe Buck's  journey.
Blade Runner. After seeing this on TV a few times and then getting the chance to see it on the big screen when the director's cut came out. It was just stunning.

I seem to have mislaid the GBU in the cemetry still!!  As soon as i find it i will post it on here and the two of tuco as well.
Belkin the poster you had sounds like one of them. The other one has him covering his ears. I forgot to mention that you can see the scene of course, on the french trailer on the restored GBU.
If anyone has the german book 'Fur ein paar leichen mehr' it has the GBU cemetry photo in it as well as many other rarely seen stills, especially from FOD. I obtained mine via the link on the Fistful of westerns website.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:the novel to the film
« on: November 22, 2004, 01:42:45 PM »
Yes Belkin, it is a mystery. I posted about it before on the GBU DVD restoration thread but did not get much response. I also mentioned the scene where tuco fires a cannon at Blondie of which i have a couple of stills.  One of the stills is actually used on the opening credits to GBU.
Back to the Blondie & Angeleyes scene. I would think it is a cut scene that no longer exists. Blondie is wearing the duster Angeleyes gives him in the prison camp so it must occur before or after the "six is my favourite number" scene.
Have you seen the publicity still of the GB&U sitting next to each other in the cemetry pistols raised.

The movie was ok... kind of a satire on the movie world with a romance thrown in. As for Leone's appearance, it was one of those blink and you miss him one's.  About two seconds.

If the Italian title "Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo" is translated it reads as Good, Ugly, Bad. So when United Artists released it in the U.S. they called Van Cleef the Ugly in the trailer.
