I just lost all my respect for Clint Eastwood. But what do you want, he's senile - has no clue what he's doing anymore.

I love all his early Westerns but his later stuff like The Outlaw Josey Wales and Palr rider I particularly liked.

I STILL think that "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" is the GREATEST Western ever made. Did you know there is a restored American version available that has footage in it that was in the original European release, but deleted from the original American release ?

Thank you, I just looked it up and several scenes were added in the 2004 release which I have not seen , going to look for it.

"Deleted scenes"

The following scenes were originally deleted by distributors from the British and American theatrical versions of the film, but were restored following the release of the 2004 Special Edition DVD.[35]
During his search for Bill Carson, Angel Eyes stumbles upon an embattled Confederate outpost after a massive artillery bombardment. Once there, after witnessing the wretched conditions of the survivors, he bribes a Confederate NCO for clues about Bill Carson.
The sequence with Tuco and Blondie crossing the desert has been extended: Tuco mentally tortures a severely dehydrated Blondie by eating and drinking in front of him.
Tuco, transporting a dehydrated Blondie, finds a Confederate camp whose occupants tell him that Brother Ramirez's monastery is nearby.
Tuco and Blondie discuss their plans when departing in a wagon from Brother Ramirez's monastery.
A scene where Blondie and Angel Eyes are resting by a creek when a man appears and Blondie shoots him. Angel Eyes asks the rest of his men to come out (all are hidden as well). When the five men come out, Blondie counts them (including Angel Eyes), and concludes that six is the perfect number. Angel Eyes asks him why, mentioning that he had heard that three was the perfect number. Blondie responds that six is the perfect number, because he has six bullets left in his revolver.
The sequence with Tuco, Blondie and the Union Captain has been extended: the Captain asks the pair questions about their pasts, which they are reluctant to answer.

A scene deleted by Leone following the Rome premiere was also re-inserted:
After being betrayed by Blondie, surviving the desert on his way to civilization and assembling a hybrid revolver from parts of various original makes, Tuco meets with members of his gang in a distant cave, where he conspires with them to hunt and kill Blondie.

Additional footage of the sequence where Tuco is tortured by Angel Eyes' henchman was discovered. The original negative of this footage was deemed too badly damaged to be used in the theatrical cut, but the footage appears as an extra in the 2004 DVD supplementary features.

Lost footage of the missing Socorro Sequence where Tuco continues his search for Blondie in a Texican pueblo while Blondie is in a hotel room with a Mexican woman (Silvana Bacci) is reconstructed with photos and unfinished snippets from the French trailer. Also, in the documentary "Reconstructing The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," what looks to be footage of Tuco lighting cannons before the Ecstasy of Gold sequence appears briefly. None of these scenes or sequences appear in the 2004 re-release, however, but are in the supplementary features.

Regarding the deleted scenes that were included in the new release of teh movie, the footage found was NOT in English. Luckily, all these many years later, Clint Eastwood and Eli wallach are still alive, so they agreed to dub their own voices back into the film in english for the American release. Another actor was hired to dub the lines of Lee Van Cleef back into English, as that great actor died some time ago.

I bought the newly-restored English version with the deleted scenes on DVD, and I think it's worth the money. It's one of my FAV cowboy movies ever,(along with "The Great Northfield, Minnesota Raid" with Cliff Robertson and Robert Duvall, and "True Grit" with John Wayne and Kim Darby).

Thanks for the info

Speaking of Robert Duvall did you ever see a not so famous movie which he was in but fantastic called 'Stalin'.
He is a great actor but his not so famous movies I enjoyed the most 'Geronimo' was another great one.

I never actually cared for John Wayne movies , never saw 'True grit' but did like John Wayne and the cowboys' which think was a Disney type movie and 'Green Berets' which think at the time it came out was more of a public relations type pro-Nam movie but still good.

Lee Van Cleef was an underrated actor.

YES, i DID see Robert Duvall in "STALIN" and he was great !

Remember him with Steve McQueen in "BULLITT" or with Joh Wayne in "True Grit" ?! BOTH GREAT movies. Robert Duvall is a GREAT actor and one of my FAV actors.

btw, if you want to see a good documentary on Stalin (TRULY the MOST EVIL person ever to walk the Earth), see "MONSTER: A Portrait Of Stalin, in blood". GREAT documentary.

I have to confess that I did not see BULLIT, I watch most of these movies on TMC , I know who Steve McQueen is but can't recall ever seeing any of his movies.

"MONSTER: A Portrait Of Stalin, I saw it and yes fantastic.

Did you see the "Killing fields" that was another powerful movie.

Underrated movie, If I recall it was about a KGB officer who worked for Stalin.

Believe me when I say that John Wayne's "Green Beret" movie was a crock of crapola and simple pro-Vietnam and would have made a very good propaganda movie! I spent over a year in Vietnam and I can say this without any guilt! That whole war was on a par with Iraq and Afghanistan in which we should have never got involved with none of them! 60 thousand deaths of our youth and for what?
