While finding the "ambiguous" ending's failures in its lack of answers for the fates of its characters, he considers the "happy" ending "amusing" due to its attempt to overhaul the film's pre-established tone. He also considers the latter to be of interest to fans of Sergio Leone 's films due to Silence's gauntlet serving as a possible reference to Joe 's use of a bullet-proof sheet of metal in A Fistful of Dollars.
Sources:  . By , Sergio Corbucci had grown weary of making Westerns that varied widely in quality and commercial viability. He had previously considered snowed-in valleys as the setting of Django , although the prior film took place in muddy conditions due to time and budget constraints. Casting English-speaking lead actors in Spaghetti Westerns was a growing practice because it was believed to allow international marketability.
Marcello Mastroianni had conceived the idea of a mute gunfighter when he told Corbucci that he had always wanted to appear in a Western, but would have been held back by his inability to speak English. To bypass the need for an English-speaking lead, Corbucci decided to turn Trintignant's character into a mute. Corbucci hired established German actor Klaus Kinski to play Loco, a character who was partially intended to emulate Gorca, the vampire played by Boris Karloff in Mario Bava 's Black Sabbath , which served as a major stylistic influence on The Great Silence.
After appearing in Corbucci's film and Luigi Magni 's Faustina , McGee was invited to return to America by Sidney Poitier , where she became a major actress in the blaxploitation genre. Several Snow Hill scenes were shot on a set specifically built for the film, with log cabins and alpine roofs. Many of the surrounding hills were used for various set-pieces, including Loco's gang's hideout, the way station, the stagecoach route and the Snow Hill graveyard.
The Elios Film town set in Rome, which had previously been used by Corbucci in Django , was used for several Snow Hill scenes including the final duel. Most of the Snow Hill scenes filmed at Elios were shot at night so that the fake "snow" looked more convincing; 26 tons of shaving cream was used to give the street a snowbound look.
According to McGee, Corbucci was "the nicest man" during production, and "never tried to put the make on" her. The actress attributed this to the frequent presence of his wife Nori on the set, noting that "they were such a happy couple. They made it a great environment to work in. Kinski later declared that he insulted Wolff because he wanted to help him get into character. During the making of the film, Corbucci and Trintignant were interviewed; Corbucci discussed the nature of violence in his films and Spaghetti Westerns in general comparing the use of violence in such films to the James Bond franchise , while Trintignant spoke of the unusual nature of his role and how he would practice drawing his gun — by pulling a sock substituting for the gloves Silence wears in the film off his hand and reaching for a long-stemmed artichoke in his pocket.
Following the film's completion, The Great Silence was, as per standard procedure for a Spaghetti Western, edited in its final, completed form and dubbed into five languages: Italian, French, Spanish, German and English. Subtitled versions were created for foreign markets outside of the dubbed versions. Although Hart and Ciannelli's dub script remains relatively faithful to the original Italian dialogue, the meaning of numerous lines and scenes were changed; Ciannelli in particular frequently embellished the dialogue of films in the dubbing stage, such as Arizona Colt.
Much of the dialogue concerning the outlaws, such as a remark made by Walter, the leader of the bandits, about their forthcoming amnesty , as well as Loco's conversation with Burnett about the morality of the thieves, were rewritten to imply that most of the outlaws were being persecuted not simply because of their poverty, but for also practising Mormonism.
Several of the characters' names were also changed from Corbucci's originals, for example, "Tigrero" became "Loco", "Sheriff Gideon Corbett" changed to "Sheriff Gideon Burnett", and "Bobo Schultz" was renamed "Sanchez". Film historian Howard Hughes suggests that, despite the implications of a large budget as a result of an international cast, as well as elaborate set and costume designs, there are several aspects that suggest otherwise.
These include several continuity errors and revealing mistakes present throughout the film, and a variance in the quality of the film stock. The Great Silence has been interpreted by various film critics and historians as a subversion of various conventions of the Western film genre. Corbucci, who made his left-wing views either the subtext or subject of several of his films, wrote the film's story as an allegory highlighting the corruptions stemming from authoritarian forms of capitalism , which are personified by the sadistic, greedy bounty killers led by Loco who use the bounties to fuel their desires for violence and money while acting under the law , as well as the schemes of the banker Pollicutt.
This is partially in line with the "Classical Plot" of both American Westerns such as Shane and certain Spaghetti Westerns such as A Fistful of Dollars , in which, according to Will Wright, a "lone stranger rides into a troubled town and cleans it up, winning the respect of the townsfolk and the love of the schoolmarm. A key aspect of the film that differentiates its stylistic choices from other Westerns is its setting — a snow-bound Utah that contrasts with the desert plains seen in most Western films, American or Italian.
The bleakness of the winter landscape complements the dark and pessimistic tone of the film, while providing motivation for the characters, as the living conditions and chances of survival are made more dire. The snowy backdrop isolates the events of the story by providing very little visible geographical detail, and "fair metaphors for the enclosed, cruel world herein" are created.
In his analysis of the film, Donato Totaro compares Silence to other Spaghetti Western protagonists, and analyses him in Freudian terms — he is dressed in black like Corbucci's previous creation, Django , is extremely fast and accurate with his gun, and is anti-heroic , sharing some of his characteristics with Loco both will kill other people on the grounds that they will receive payment. However, unlike other " strong and silent " Spaghetti Western characters, such as Django or Joe from A Fistful of Dollars , Silence is completely mute, giving him a sense of vulnerability and sensitivity.
In contrast to the Colt Single Action Army revolvers used by his fellow Spaghetti Western protagonists and the other characters in the film, Silence's choice of weapon is a semi-automatic Mauser C96 — its rapid rate of fire gives him an unfair advantage over his opponents, therefore his marksmanship comes in part from technological, not physical, prowess. Like Django and Joe before him, Silence's hands are injured prior to the climax, greatly impeding his marksmanship.
However, a further link to the bounty killers he fights is established — due to his throat being cut by their kind, Silence frequently shoots the thumbs of his enemies off, rendering them unable to use a gun. Also, unlike Django and Joe, neither his will to survive nor his advanced weaponry can save Silence in the final duel against Loco. The latter then delivers a "symbolic castration ", as described by James Newton, upon the hero by taking the Mauser for himself after killing him.
The Great Silence , as with many of Corbucci's Westerns, is known for its depictions of strong-willed female characters, namely the mother of the young outlaw Miguel who requests Silence to kill Loco's compatriot Charlie , Regina, the saloon madam who Sherriff Burnett falls for, and Pauline. She is also shown to be readily in control of her sexuality, as seen in her refusals to become Pollicut's mistress and her seduction of Silence as she tends to his wounds. Pauline is also African-American, and her interracial love scene with Silence has been seen as highly subversive, both in the context of Western films and commercial cinema as a whole.
The deaths of Silence, Pauline and the outlaws at the hands of Loco and his gang are a culmination of the subversive elements of The Great Silence and its anti-authoritarian stance. Killing sympathetic or leading characters was not a new tactic to Corbucci — the title character of his second Western, Minnesota Clay , was seemingly killed at the end of the film's American prints.
Kennedy , as he believed that their assassinations served to further their causes and resulted in widespread condemnations of violence. In contrast to the deaths of leading characters in similarly countercultural films of the time, such of Ben, Duane Jones ' character in Night of the Living Dead , and Wyatt and Billy Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider , in which said characters are killed by members of similarly disenfranchised groups, the bounty killers are working as part of the State , acting in the service of capital by helping to protect it.
What further separates the deaths of the heroes and the anti-authoritarian position of The Great Silence from Romero and Hopper's films is that, unlike Night of the Living Dead and Easy Rider , which were produced without the restrictions of well-established genre conventions, Corbucci's film also subverts and comments on the genre that it is part of;  in contrast to the relatively rare circumstances of the face-to-face gunfight at the O. Corral — which provided the primary template for cinematic depictions of Old West duels — actual shootouts of the era tended to closer resemble ambushes like the one committed by Loco and his gang.
Cox believes that the moral message of the film is that "sometimes, even though you know you'll fail, you still do the right thing". He also adds that by facing an unbeatable foe and dying in the ensuring duel, Silence "becomes the noblest hero of any Western film since Shane ".
A melancholic, emotive score, Morricone personally viewed it as his best Spaghetti Western soundtrack aside from his compositions for Sergio Leone. In reviewing Morricone's score for Electric Sheep Magazine , Robert Barry expressed that the compositions of the film eschew "the soaring heroic melodies and pounding horse-hoof rhythms of the Leone films" and that the music closely resembles Morricone's own s horror film soundtracks, Florian Fricke 's music for Werner Herzog 's films, and modernist compositions by Luciano Berio and Pierre Boulez. He also noted that solo violins playing fifth intervals and flutes are used in creating Wagnerian leitmotifs to highlight Silence's conflict within the society he is placed in.
Noise Overtones Therapy composed and performed minute pieces based on the film, titled The Voice of Silence , Suite Pauline and Epilogo respectively, as part of the Colossus Project, a musical project set up by the Finnish Progressive Music Association to encourage bands and musical artists to musically interpret the film and other Spaghetti Westerns. Morricone's music was sampled and remixed by Thievery Corporation for the album Morricone Rmx.
A Tribute. The Great Silence was released in Italy in November Zanuck of 20th Century Fox to see whether the film could be released on the American market, he was offended by the film to the point where he reportedly swallowed the cigar he was smoking in shock upon watching the ending , and refused to distribute it in the United States. The company also considered a remake of the film starring Clint Eastwood , which eventually evolved into a largely unrelated project by Universal Pictures , Joe Kidd. Following initial screenings at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema , beginning on October 4, ,   Film Movement announced on October 21 that they had acquired all North American distribution rights to The Great Silence , resulting from a deal that had been brokered between the distributor's president, Michael E.
Rosenberg, and Oliver Bachert of Beta Film. The announcement revealed that the film would receive a theatrical re-release in North American theatres, followed by a release on Blu-ray Disc and digital formats. The DVD's special features consist of a video introduction to the film by Alex Cox, the alternative happy ending with optional commentary by Cox , and the English version of the film's trailer.
Glenn Erickson felt that the transfer on Fantoma's DVD was "reasonable but not great" due to the transfer having washed-out colours despite being clean from damage. Erickson also felt that the English dub "still plays as artificial and false, and detracts mightily from Kinski's performance" despite praising the voice acting itself. In the UK, Digital Classics also released their first DVD of the film in ; this release includes the English dub alongside the Italian track with English subtitles, the trailer and the alternative happy ending, but lacks Cox's introduction and commentary.
This release includes the alternative happy ending, the English opening and credits, English and German theatrical trailers, a subtitled interview with Nori Corbucci, a text-based historical overview of bounty hunting and illustrated liner notes as special features. Reviewing the disc for Rock! German distributor AL! Their releases include the alternative happy ending, trailers, an audio commentary by Mike Stegal, an alternative German " grindhouse " version of the film, several featurettes and image galleries, and a liner notes booklet.
Extras include "Cox on Corbucci", a featurette in which Cox discusses the film and its significance in the context of Corbucci's career, the documentary Western, Italian Style , the alternative happy ending with optional commentary by Cox and the previously-unreleased "ambiguous" recut of the ending, both with restored audio, original and re-release theatrical trailers, and a liner notes booklet featuring "Ending the Silence", an essay about the film by Simon Abrams.
Film Movement's release received positive notices from DoBlu.
The Great Silence - Wikipedia
It has been widely acclaimed by critics and audiences, and has appeared on numerous lists of the best Spaghetti Western films compiled by audiences, filmmakers and historians. Alongside Django , it is usually regarded as Corbucci's best film and one of the best Spaghetti Westerns not to be directed by Sergio Leone.
Time Out gave the film a mostly positive review, writing, "While Django remains the erratic Corbucci's best picture, this slightly later spaghetti Western does well by an inventive set-up [ In his review he wrote that The Great Silence is a "brutal, bleakly beautiful spaghetti Western filmed on stark locations in the Dolomites , with one of the most uncompromising and unforgettable finales ever filmed". He concluded his review by stating that "If you're looking for a good time on a Saturday night, I'd say this movie is not what you want, but if you're looking for a dark, violent, thoughtful, and well-made film, look no further".
Although praising the locations, as well as the performances of Kinski and Trintignant, Morricone's score, the realistic approach to the story and Silvano Ippoliti 's cinematography, he felt that the characterizations were lacking, adding that Corbucci's direction often "drifts and falters" and lacks the "operatic grandeur" of Leone's films. Erickson also expressed that the film's ending was unsurprising given the nihilistic nature of the rest of the film, but noted that he would have been more shocked by it had he seen the film upon its theatrical release.
