I have this one and in the same shape! It's a very good slightly edited feature. This scope version doesn't come up too often!

Very true Osi, we are sad to be selling this one but we do have it on DVD uncut so i can still see on it on the big screen via digital Projection. The only reason for the sale is simply to start to clear turning colour prints and especially to raise cash to pay for some recent purchases, namely Poltergeist on 8 and cross of iron on 16 otherwise we would be keeping it

Speaking of un-cut, from what i understand, the orignal Italian version of "My name is Nobody" was around 130 minutes, ( a "roadshow" version?) and if that's the case, I'd love to see it sometime.
However, the nearly 115.00 minute version on bluray is a real stunner o a film, especially for westerns from 1974. It's aged very well.
I like in this 4X400ft scope version how it ends. Though it would have ben nice to have the original full intro scene (the barbershop), and the final shootout between the two, the way it iris's out after facing the 150 "wild bunch" works quite well.

It certainly does. I aways thought that this scope film was worth it just for the scene with those explosions in slow motion at the end. Its one of the best uses of the scope screen.

"You'll end ... in History!!!"
Not just the explosions, but the music rises to a really good climax here. I mean, If Tonino Valeri had desired to, he could have actually ended the film right there.
A little trivia (so to speak), I actually have a half written sequel to this film, which would place Nobody in the late 1920's, tired of life, and a young man now wanting to do the same thing with him, as he did with Jack B. Amazingly, Terrence Hill could still convincingly play the part today as an over the hill "Nobody".

osi, you may already know that there was a sequel 'a genius, two partners and a dupe' made in 1975.

well, yeah, kind of a sequel. I didn't think much of it.
