Title: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Sergio Leone, 1966)
Post by: Jay on 29 May 2008 - 19:05
aka Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo

Would anyone have access to a 35mm of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly?

Urgent request and lovely reward offered...

You'll be amazed to hear that I don't have access to a 35mm print of this film...

I wish I did!

It's okay, pal; a print has been sourced. It's to go to Almeria next month for the Dollar flicks being projected in the locations with Tarantino as guest.

Yeah, I wanted to go but had booked a villa in Menorca at the same time. Knowing Mr League's events and parties, it will be legendary.

His Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, is really something.

Slightly OT, but which is the best GBU disc to get? I thought the recent US disc had a mono English track, but the back cover on the DVD sites I've looked at doesn't list one and its hard to work out what version most of the reviews are referring to!

Cheers.

Just in-

Quentin Tarantino, previously scheduled to be in attendance has cancelled and will not be introducing the shows. He has cleared all appearances to begin preproduction on his new feature, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. The films will be introduced by regional Leone experts.

If not sounds like a good excuse to go to London.

If the Filmhouse in Edinburgh is mentioned as a venue I reckon most big city 'arthouse' venues should get this too. I'm hoping that it'll be showing at Bradford's National Media Museum (http://www.nationalmediamuseum.org.uk/) will be screening this. If anywhere in the North West is a prime candidate I'd say this place is the most likely with the The Cornerhouse in Manchester looking likely too.

Sounds like we could get it here then.  I ain't got a clue where it'll show up but I signed up so they could let me know when it's showing near me.

Will be fucking amazing to see it on the big screen.  :-X

Does anyone have a link for the London South Bank Centre date?

I should imagine that it is the longer version released a couple of years ago with the extra scenes on dvd.

By the look of the running time it has been resubmitted for cinema (considering things have to be submitted again for video after being on the cinema whose to say it can't happen the other way around)

I may be wrong but that's what i reckon.

Yes, it's a cinema release. It's says so on the BBFC page, that's why I put 'In UK Cinemas' in the thread title  :D

Classified for film and gives the running time in feet...

"The running time of this film was calculated from the measured length of 16087+6 ( feet + frames )"

It's showing at the Bradford Museum in September, digital print but it's in the large Pictureville screen which is a really excellent auditorium.

I'm going to do my best to get to one of the shows.

I think I'll rent it first, and see if they announce a Leone box-set (which wouldn't surprise me) soon thereafter.

The American release is up for preorder at PlayUSA for £12.99 delivered but I it is not clear whether it will be region locked or not.  Some of the recent MGM/Sony titles, such as SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, have been region free.

Does anyone know if there are any blu ray releases that have the shorter version on them (without the bits that were put back in & overdubbed a few years back)? Cheers  :'(

I like them as extras but I've seen the film so many times they just don't seem to fit to me.


It's the dubbing that gets me more than anything, Eastwood and Wallach dubbing themselves with their older voices just doesn't sit right with me. Doesn't ruin it for me either, I just prefer it without.

It's great that that footage was restored, but I honestly didn't feel any of it added to the film. The "shorter" version being the superior cut, imo.

And yes, I too found the older voices of Eastwood and Wallach to be distracting, but at least they didn't have to call Anthony Hopkins in to imitate either of those two gentlemen.

It's not just the new dubbing that I dislike in the longer cut: it's the new foley track. The new gunshots, etc, really irritate me: to my ears, they're nothing like those in the original sound mix. The same goes for the BD releases of FISTFUL... and FOR A FEW... (Thankfully, I've got the Italian BD of FISTFUL with the original mono mix, and the German Paramount DVD release of FOR A FEW...)
