I just watched it on restored print at the New Beverly Cinema. I was blown away with the quality... Such a good film.

Agreed... I love the lingering shots and the way the movie tells the majority of the story through visuals instead of and excessive amount of dialogue.

Interestingly, in the clip above, when Harmonica fires his gun, Sergio jumps the line. He's technically on the wrong side. Now today with the advanced film conventions and shorthand, that's fully acceptable. As long as you know who's where in relation to the others, an audience doesn't question that at all today. But to do that almost 50 years ago? Way ahead of his time.
