At the risk of sounding like a pretentious academic at a film school this movie works on a couple of different levels. Sergio Leone's movies always did. This movie is a satirical take not only on the Sphaghetti Western but also on many of the westerns being made in the late sixties and early seventies. Not by chance is this movie set in 1899 - the end of the Nineteenth century. Here you have the young man who has been raised on a steady diet of stories about his hero and his exploits against impossible odds. Now his hero is old and simply wants to quit while he can still enjoy his retirement. The frontier is just a memory and he wants to go. The young man won't let him - he's a legend and by god he'll go out like he lived - in a blaze of glory. Like so many of Leone's movies this little oddball comedy western is actually a take on the end of an era, memories, myth and reality. Yes it is funny with a couple really great comedic setpieces. The soundtrack by Morricone is both stirring and wacky. And it is very free with historical and technical details, but who cares? This isn't a documentary it's a movie about how we make myths out of life. And if you think that I've made too much out of this movie then you just made my point about this movie. See it and then decide. I suppose this is a sterotype but this strange, moody and romantic genere could only have come out of Italy

I'm a big fan of the Sergio Leone/Ennio Morricone westerns, and was absolutely thrilled and excited to find that "My Name Is Nobody" was finally available on DVD. So here's a review of the DVD version:
PICTURE QUALITY: It's okay...not nearly as sharp and beautiful as the DVD release of "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" for instance. You probably won't consider this the definitive release of this film on disc...it seems at times slightly out-of-focus...not enough to distract from the story, but enough to prevent the viewer from basking in the glory of the location shots, etc. However, it is presented in true widescreen, so you do get a lot more "picture" than with the VHS versions. Finally, you really can see all of the "wild bunch" as they race towards Henry Fonda...what a treat!
SOUND: The sound on the DVD is relatively good...but the music seems to have been recorded too "hot"...in other words, when the music gets loud, it tends to distort and crackle. This is not good news for Morricone fans. Aside from that though, the voices and sound effects are clear and true.
EXTRAS: The DVD features a bio of Morricone, and even presents the "soundtrack" itself, so that you can click on a particular song title and simply listen to it like a music CD. The quality of the audio on this portion is better than in the film itself.
In conclusion, this isn't the definitive "My Name Is Nobody" on DVD. If you buy it, chances are you'll still hope against hope that a legitimate, remastered version will come along someday. But it is certainly better than watching the pan-and-scan VHS version.

For those who haven't seen this flick, it is a great movie in a semi-Leone style. Terence Hill and Fonda are most suitably cast in a story of an aging gunfighter who is planning to retire and a younger man who has idloized him his whole life.

For those looking to upgrade, the transfer on this new Image dvd release is FAR SUPERIOR to the older WHAM dvd release.

No extras at all but the main menu does feature several actual scenes from the film with Morricone's score playing in the background. No theatrical trailer.

It is said that Leone himself actually directed two or three scenes from the movie. Reason enough to buy. Give it a watch and see if you can identify the Leone directed scenes...

I have seen many comedy westerns including Cat Ballou, Blazing Saddles, and City Slickers. None have made me laugh harder than "My Name is Nobody". Henry Fonda plays a retiring gunfighter, Jack Beauregard, for the law while Terence Hill plays a comedic young gunfighter, Nobody, for good. His methods are quite different and should keep you in stitches more than once. The scenes at the Circus can't be beat. Although he is proficient with a gun, you never see him kill anybody to make his point. Did I mention the musical score by Ennio Morricone is great? As mentioned in a good review, laurie's boomer views, you can play just the soundtrack. I love Morricone's happy go lucky intro song , My Name is Nobody, and all the western themes that dramatize the scenes with Beauregard. I do hope this will be released on DVD in the US and for a lower price. The import quality lacks a little to be desired so I am hoping for a better transfer of the master in the future. The WHAM! version menu is overly red and the Bio has Henry Ford instead of Fonda as the name, but the bio is correct. The DVD is decent quality with a only a few screen glitches and the sound is good. The occasional graininess can't be helped since the original VHS quality was no better and probably the master print wasn't sharp. I don't regret getting the DVD since this is a great movie and my VHS is wearing out.

I originally wrote this review in 2003, it is now 2014 and I still find this to be one of my favorite Westerns of all time. I first saw this movie on TV while at my closest friends house around 1978. Back then you couldn't buy it on VHS Tape and you could only record it if you had lots of money for a VCR recorder. So happened he had one. Now it's on DVD, Blu Ray, and Digital.
