Alternate Versions

The British cinema release version was cut by the BBFC to shorten the beating scene after a few punches, and to completely remove the second flashback sequence where Mortimer's sister shoots herself to avoid a possible rape. Although all UK video and original DVD releases contained these scenes the 2005 Special Edition DVD was missing around 20 secs from the beating (which ends abruptly and without the dialogue exchange between Indio and Groggy).

Worth more than a fistful of dollars
10 October 2002 | by funkyfrySee all my reviews

Excellent fun with sadistic humor from Leone. Eastwood's best performance in a Leone film. Van Cleef is good in a role similar to Chuck Bronson's in "Once Upon a Time in the West". He is menacing and sympathetic, whereas in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" he is just campy and all "bad guy" (but still fun). What makes both performances so memorable I think is that Van Cleef seems to be in touch with Leone's dark humor, where Eastwood is used as a straight man. Volonte is also excellent in the bandito role Leone used (an example of a standard European character type who reminds the audience of earthiness and the basic ignorance and greed of man). A much better film than most people who've seen it on a Saturday afternoon on TV probably realize -- you have to see these movies in the theater to get the full hit.
