Aims & Scope
Sergio Leone&s monumental film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly will be fifty in 2016. The aim of this book project is essentially to document this classic film in great detail. Highlights will include over 20 interviews with cast and crew, more than 200 rare behind-the-scenes stills, as well as detailed analysis of the historical background (including numerous historical comparison photos, maps etc), documentation of all shooting locations, lobby cards, posters, and more.



Interviews with Cast and Crew
An extensive volume of information has been gained by the generous input of cast and crew. The following were interviewed on one or more occasions:

Eli Wallach ('the Ugly')
Ennio Morricone (music)
Bruno Battisti D'Amario (guitar)
Carla Leone (wife of Sergio Leone)
Luciano Vincenzoni (script writer)
Alan Van Cleef (son of Lee Van Cleef)
Eugenio Alabiso (editor)
Chelo Alonso (actress; Steven's wife)
Aldo Sanbrell (actor; member of Angel Eyes' gang)
Frank Braña (actor in opening scene)
Elisabetta Simi (wife of Carlo Simi, art director)
Fabrizio Gianni (assistant director)
Giancarlo Santi (assistant director)
Tonino Delli Colli (director of photography)
Franco Di Giacomo (camera operator)
Sergio Salvati (assistant camera operator)
Alberto Lardani (son of Iginio Lardani, titles designer)
Vittorio De Sisti (sound engineer)
Domingo Contreras (extra)
Eros Bacciucchi (special effects)
Giovanni Corridori (special effects)
Silvana Bacci (actress in deleted scene)
Ricardo Palacios (actor in deleted scene)


Behind-The-Scenes Stills
The book is lavished with numerous stills, including over 200 behind-the-scenes stills, most of which have been scanned from original negatives and not previously published. The format of the hard-covered book is 26.5 x 30 cm, which allows much space for large format photos (on high-quality, coated 135 g/m2 paper). Each still is accompanied by a detailed legend.



Lobby Cards & Posters
An extensive collection of country-of-origin (Italian) lobby cards and posters are dispersed throughout the book.



Film Locations
The shooting locations are presented in the form of 'comparison' photos, taken using a small aperture and a tripod-mounted camera. All location photos are accompanied by 3D GPS coordinates, as well as a vivid description of the terrain and comments from Spanish locals.



Historical Background
The vast majority of the American Civil War (1861-1865) was fought in the East, in states such as Pennsylvannia, Maryland, and Virginia, whereas Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was, by definition of a western, set in the West. In 1862, though, there was a Civil War battle lasting one day on the Rio Grande, led on the Confederate side by the drunken General Sibley. This battle was followed by several days of fighting in Glorieta Pass. These relatively small engagements did not escape the meticulous preproduction research of Sergio Leone and colleagues, who made numerous references to Sibley's 1862 New Mexico campaign. A brief outline of this campaign and its 'appearances' in the The Good, the Bad and the Ugly are highlighted in the book.



Deleted Scenes
In collaboration with expert Ulrich Angersbach, a detailed description of deleted scenes is provided in the book. The legendary cut 'Socorro' scene is reconstructed with the help of stills and interviews with actors involved in this sequence. In addition, a synopsis of the original Italian script for the complete film will be provided, and differences between the script and film will be elucidated.



Attention to Details
One of the characteristics of a Sergio Leone film, especially The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, is attention to detail. Historical details of the Civil War period were closely studied and reproduced on the wide screen, albeit with embellishments. Numerous examples of this attention to detail will be presented throughout the book. In particular, many examples of the 'appearances' of details gleaned from historical Civil War photos are presented throughout the book.

Yes i think that we should be happy as long we have all the major themes + some few other cues but its not necessary to have everything because some music you really want to skip.
In the 70's all we had was 10 tracks and sometime 20 for a double lp and we were not unhappy !

I only program 13 tracks, tt: 32 minutes.
And OUTIW is one of my top twenty scores of all time..

But some folks, god bless 'em, just have to have it all.
I don't understand why, but I admire their passion/obsession! .
Brm

P s.I was so OVERJOYED when the expanded cd included " Morton", I could have cared less about the other extras!

Is the GDM longer than the lp but shorter than the RCA FRANCE?
What's on it?

The GDM version is the longest version available, it's the same tracklist as the new Beat version. There are seven extra tracks.

Il Grande Massacro, Arrivo Alla Stazione, Un Letto Troppo Grande, Sul Tetto Del Treno, Ritorno Al Treno, Duello Finale, Nascita Di Una Citta'.

It's a great album, sadly not as great as I'd hoped with Duello Finale not being the film version, but at least there's a version available. I know it's sad I just wanted the variation at the end of the string section in A Man With a Harmonica, the part were Harmonica collapses onto the desert, I've always loved that part.

‘They'd have my money again if they would just include that piece and the sedate orchestration if I recall as Frank rides toward the MacBain ranch passed the railway construction prior to "the point of dying"’

What a wonderful cue. It follows Cheyenne’s Return To Sweetwater.

Cue 40. Frank Returns to Sweetwater. Only one of the above versions had passable cues for this sequence. Didn’t matter DVD 5.1 solved that problem.


Yeah, what a shame this wonderful piece of music isn't included on the soundtrack album:
https://youtu.be/iK-pkf_oAlY?t=129

The 2nd part of As a Judgement is similar but it lacks the superb part before the funeral trumpet comes in.

Blasphemy! How the hell can it be a favorite-when you cut it to pieces? For shame Mr. Marshall. Do you "cut up" all your others in your Top 20? Now that would be something to see- your "programming" of your Top scores. Is there anything you listen through?

We're into the second decade of the 21st century, yet in terms of quality & satisfaction the visual elements of scores are occasionally lagging far behind. I offer this:

I made a new cover from one on the custom covers thread.
Nice!
