Duck, You Sucker (1971)
"I chose to oppose an intellectual, who has experienced a revolution in Ireland, with a naïve Mexican... you have two men: one naïve and one intellectual (self-centred as intellectuals too often are in the face of the naïve). From there, the film becomes the story of Pygmalion reversed. The simple one teaches the intellectual a lesson. Nature gains an upper hand and finally the intellectual throws away his book of Bakunin's writings. You suspect damn well that this gesture is a symbolic reference to everything my generation has been told in the way of promises. We have waited, but we still are waiting! I have the film say, in effect "Revolution means confusion"".
Early in the film when Juan and his children first meet John, Juan's children completely dismantle his motorcycle, and Juan gets mad at them and tells them to reassemble it.
The most famous deleted scene from the film and one which was shown on many lobby cards and stills for the film took place after the scene where John destroys Juan's coach, and before night scene where Juan tricks John into blowing up the church. In this deleted scene Juan and others take his guns and force him to walk through the desert without water. At one point John finds some puddle of water but as he goes down to drink one of Juan's children pisses in it. This scene was very similar to the scene in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) where Tuco forces Blondie to walk through the desert, and it would also explain John's look in the scene in film where he wakes up in old church and takes the bottle of water like he hasn't been drinking for long time, and why he is angry and tries to kill Juan and his kids by blowing them up in church.
After the bridge explosion scene, there was a big part of the film that was cut out and slightly re-edited. Originally after that scene, Juan and John reunite with his bandits in the cave where none of them talks but their faces show what they're thinking. In the same scene there was another flashback with John remembering his time in Ireland (actress who played John's girlfriend also mentioned in one interview how additional flashback scene didn't made it into the final film), and in anger, he throws bottle on gramophone which breaks the record it was playing, but he apologizes saying he didn't do it on purpose. The others say how their feet are hurting and John responds by saying that they'll keep hurting and that they have to get to Mexico City as soon as possible.
Another deleted scene from this part of the film had Villega visiting some sick man in rebel safe house when he gets arrested by Colonel Reza's soldiers, who take him to Reza who then tortures Villega in what was said to be very violent scene. While this is going on, John and Juan go to the same man Villega was visiting when he got arrested where they find out what happened and Juan goes back to caves to warn others, while John goes to try and find Villega. This is originally where the scene where John sees Villega in the truck with Reza when his soldiers kill other revolutionaries took place, and right after that one next scene was him going back to the caves where he and Juan find all the other revolutionaries and his children dead. This is another deleted scene that was also shown on lobby cards and stills.
