Title: Cars
Post by: UNKNOWN Next to Arch Stanton on April 05, 2012, 02:17:03 PM
According the IMDB, there is a scene during the final gunfight where you can see cars driving on a highway in the background. Has anyone else seen this?

I've never heard of that one but I'm sure I've seen aeroplanes in the sky during the bank raid sequence

Didn't someone find either Waldo or Amelia Earhart in one of the films?

I've heard of this before and I'm sure I searched the film and found the said cars...but now I cant see them. I thought it was when the camera has all three in shot...and clint is sat down with his back to the camera after he gives Lee his gun, and I thought it was in the background on other side of the coral where the trees are...but cant seem to see them anymore.........

In the sky, but I think they have 'air-brushed' them out on these restored DVD's.
It was during the bank raid sequence when they escape with the loot.

Would it be worth it to buy a cheap VHS copy and look for the planes?     :oP

If you follow this link, you can see the woman carrying a young / baby at 6mins 54secs.
Right after the close up with the bright sun behind him where Mortimer says "It's all for you, I think you deserve it", the camera goes back to Manco and she is some distance behind him, walking towards him. You see her between the blue of his collar (on his right side) and the large cactus.

Thanks for posting this - I've never noticed it.
Probably because the most I ever watched this film was back in the old days on vhs when it was probably not visible!  :D ;D

That link does not work in USA; copyright violation.

This one does (at least for now) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0JPnR7C8mZQ

6:32 at that link is the moment you are talking about

ok thank you, yes we can see this woman, and we can't see this woman on vhs tape, but in 1965 in a cinema? a large screen..  of course if you saw the film one time...it's difficult to see

When Mortimer says "Maybe next time" after Clint says "What about our partnership?"



Was that a subtle hint to GBU?

I doubt GBU was planned then, but I assume that the line was stuck in there because of the possibility of another film in the series; Leone had already had one hit with FOD and that brought a sequel, so perhaps another would be coming up ....

Of course, ultimately the line was not needed: in GBU, Van Cleef is playing a totally different character than he is in FAFDM; not to mention that GBU is set years before FAFDM

I certainly hope it wasn't a hint to anything. The emotional music that plays in the background suggests it actually means "We will never meet again and that makes me sad", which is much better than "TO BE CONTINUED!!!!"

I think you, or rather IMDB is referring to the final scene in GBU, with Tuco standing on the cross and almost getting hanged. During that scene, you could actually see (at least on VHS tapes)  a car passing by on a hill in the background, BUT:

1.  First of all, you could barely see it; I could only spot it after watching very carefully in slow motion and only after somebody on this forum pointed it out many years ago.
2. I have checked on a couple of DVDs of GBU I own and I couldn't see the car anymore. Guess it has been deleted during restoration or when they transferred the movie from VHS to DVD.

Somewhere on this forum there is a thread on this issue, but I'm too lazy to search... ;)

That was a rhetorical response, like Harmonica's response in Once/West when Jill asks him if he'll be back some day, and Harmonica responds "some day".

I doubt it, but it's a very emotional scene on a subtle, much deeper level, and a great achievement for the sole fact of not being gay (in such a machoistic picture).
