Though I would concede that OUATITW is probably Leone's most flawless film I still have a personal fondness for both TGTBATU and DYS that put them ever so slightly ahead... maybe by a fraction of a whisker.  I consider all 3 films to be virtually indistinguishable in terms of quality. I would also like to state for the record that I find Morricone's score for DYS to be his best stand-alone soundtrack.

    Duck, You Sucker, which he TOOK OVER during production, doesn't rank with the other two.

I fail to see the significance in the words "TOOK OVER" in capital letters. Is that supposed to justify that it does not rank up with the other two? I hardly see that as any excuse not to give Duck you Sucker its due.

Its doesnt matter if leone came in late, he still managed to create a masterpiece.

I think it's signficant because I do think that is the difference between DYS and his masterpieces.  It's not as organically Leone as the others and it shows at the seems.     

And as far as I'm concerned I am giving DYS its due, just not what you think it is due.   That's fine.   You can't convince me that it's better than I think it is, and I can't convince you that it's not in a league with FOFDM, GBU, OUATITW or OUATIA.    At least it's better than other Zapata's for the touch Sergio added.


More feeling.

I never tried to. I just took issue on the fact that you said that Leone entering as director at a late date was the reason the film is not up to par. That is not enough substantial evidence to condemn the film as not being in the same league as his other films.

The film condems itself as not being in league with the others.  What Sergio coming in late because the lead actors begged for him is a possible REASON not anything I am using as EVIDENCE.   The film is the evidence and it's not as good as the 4 others I mentioned in my opinion.

  Don't get me wrong, I do like DYS, but OUATITW is on a whole different and higher level for me.  I'm in the same boat as cigar joe in that I've only seen pan-n-scan versions of DYS, and though it might seem minor I think seeing the movie in widescreen could help me appreciate it more, all that footage included.

  So check back with me when we get that region 1 widescreen dvd.  :)

I can't even vote.  Once Upona a time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America are both just so good.  Duck You Sucker is great as well, but not quite as great in my opinion.

I cant believe u haven't seen DYS in widescreen - I cant believe it isn't out on reg. 1. Whazza matter wit dis **¤#¤*?

I feel sorry for you. Especially because I purchased my SE #2 for about 7$ at a supermarket campaign - just coz it was that cheap. Already had a copy.

get the R2, use your laptop, connect with a projector, sound on the stereo. Class.
