    It would be really great if Warners would sell the box-set with an extra space available for TGTB&TU S.E.

    I can't wait to see pictures of the cover art!

    Wowza! Can't wait for them to sit beside my Good, Bad & Ugly SE!

    Speaking of which, am I only the one who was perturbed to see footage that Leone had actually removed from G,B&U (not the stuff removed by the US distributors) re-inserted into the movie by the guy who did the DVD?! I though the scene (where Eli Wallach was in the cave talking to himself) seemed totally out of place!
