Flaw 1: Why not either a package with all of Leone's films (he only directed 6, after his Swords and Sandals training films) or, at least, a package with all the westerns. I'm assuming they left "Once Upon a Time in the West" out because these 4 are all U.A. films and "Once Upon" is Paramount.
Flaw 2: Not having Christopher Frayling do the commentary for "Good, Bad and the Ugly". Whenever Richard Schickel has an insight that I never knew before he usually credits it to reading Frayling's books. He's pleasant, but this was a real missed opportunity. I know that Frayling wasn't available at the time to do the commentary but he actually offered to do an alternate one before they actually released this set and they refused his offer. No one knows Leone and the Italian film industry and the American western like Frayling.
Flaw 3: Minor flaw... inserting the 7 excised scenes from the Italian release back into "Good, Bad and the Ugly" and having Clint and Eli finally record their dubbing. They sound older and there's a difference in the voices... more reverb or something. These scenes make the film unwieldy and, in my opinion, they should have stayed in the Special Features, under Deleted Scenes and they still don't explain how Angeleyes ended up as a Sgt. running a Union Army POW camp.
That's it. That's all the flaws. Watching the Clint Trilogy and "Duck, You Sucker" and all the special features and commentaries was a pure joy. And, of course, I ordered "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "Once Upon...America" separately to complete my own set. Now I just have to find a copy of "The Colossus of Rhodes" and I'll be happy.
A Fisful of Dollars stars,among others,Clint Eastwood,Marianne Koch and Gian Maria Volonté.The story finds Eastwood as a drifter riding into a town with two major factions in it.After the brutality and degrading treatment some of the town's citizens receive from them,he decides to play the two off of each other.He walks a fine line and even gets beaten for it.But he perseveres and justice is finally meted out.The film has Clint's character taking it cautiously and never using a bit of dialogue he doesn't need to.Read more ›
