Sticking with LEONE'S WESTERNS. What is the greatest Leone western sequence? For me, its the BRONSON vs FONDA gunfight from OUATITW! I play it over and over.  :D
As an aside, FONDA reminds me of JANET LEIGH (in PSYCHO).
Both are dead, the camera lingers on thier faces for what seems like an incredible amount of time, yet, not an eye lid flickers. Acting or what! Impressive!  8)

That's a great part indeed.
Also the final duel in "For a few dollars more" together with the great music.

the whole sequence with tuco in the cemetary in GBU, ecstacy of gold is an amazing piece of music. I specially like the spinning shots and the way he makes the suspense climax right before the shootout.... that sequence along with the OUATIW shootout and the man with no name emerging from the cloud of dust shootout sequence in fistful of dollars are my favorite leone sequences

OUATITW from the moment Robards says "He's whittlin on a piece of wood..." to when Bronson picks up his stuff and leaves is IMO the best sequence


Dave Jenkins, Calder Benson, Jim Cooper, Chuck Youngblood. They were all alive until they met you, Frank.

I've got so many favourite scenes, this is about as much as I could narrow it down.

The first 3 or 4 scenes in OUTW, as well as the final flashback/shootout. In fact most of the movie.

In GBU, the ecstasy of gold, final gundown and Tuco torture sequence.

In DYS, the flashback where Sean shoots his friend-turned-informant, the scene where Juan storming the bank, and also when he discovers the bodies of his family.







It's class.

Juan storming the bank! how could i forget... i know morricone hits the nail on the head alot with his masterful music but this one is perfect!

 leone set his cameras up for the GB&U tuco/blondie desert sequence with genus.  when blondie is rolling down the sand dune it looks as though he's is on flat land. optical allusion.

tuco with that pink fringed parasol. lol
great score by morricone. lol

the sequence list goes on.....

i can't really pick ONE sequence but I guess I'll go with one for now. I like the one in OUTITW when Frank shoots the family and the little boy runs out of the house and that music hits! and we see frank and the boys approaching the house   classic ... and the opening sequence is great also... and what about GBU shoot out...ahhhh! I can't pick!~

Let me remind you the "dead sons" scene from DYS with that haunting Morricone music.
But is DYS really a western?
