Did you try cutting the frame in half with heavy feathering and adjusting each half differently? I've never tried to fix a shot that "off", I'm curious about the best way myself, and that is what I would try (but I don't know if it would work).

Well, I don't really need to, since I recut the Mondo disc and added the English audio. That's my go-to version and doesn't have the grotto scene.

Huge news!

After our announcement of the Sergio Leone masterpiece, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, some fans shared their concerns regarding the "yellowishness" of the 4K restoration. We looked into this issue and here are some split screen of the before and after work.

Good enough for me. Theatrical cut + colour correction = I'll buy it. And kudos to Kino for listening to the fans!

Wow! That's some seriously crushed blacks right there.
That there is one damn fine coat you're wearing.

4K UHD - The Experts Agree, Occasionally it's a little better!

Looks more teal than yellow now, which isn't exsctly a win for accuracy, but still an improvement. I'll buy it.

Mmm, if that is the final result then I am disappointed. Appears that they "color corrected" from the current color grading instead of the raw scan before the contested "yellow grading". Assuming the sample is an example of how they will make their changes.

Such is life.

Thank god. Day one purchase!

Tho its a shame that they did a new 4K transfer of both versions of the film but couldnt be bothered to do a UHD release. Especially considering Unforgiven and 3:10 to Yuma are making the jump to UHD.

Just speculating, but they may not have had access to the raw scan. At any rate, this is certainly better than doing nothing.

This would have to be a pretty stellar new transfer for me to buy it without any cool new special features.

I already own the trilogy box set and I don't like double dipping on titles if I can't sell or trade the previous release.

...redundancy in my collection bothers me.
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.
Dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn, looking for an angry fix.
Angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night.

The yellow cast has been confirmed as Leone's intent, which was not reflected in the prior Blu-ray, just as the framing was wrong.
This is from the review of the 2014 MGM disc. Is there any evidence of Leone ever saying this?

It'd make an easier purchase decision for me if I knew Kino will be releasing Fistful of Dollars (with corrected framing) and A Few Dollars More so I can get rid of my Man with no name trilogy set.

No. The yellow tint is a "feature" of Ritrovata restorations:
