Title: ROBERT VAUGHN?
Post by: Belkin on August 24, 2004, 12:49:12 PM
Elmer just passed away. So I had to sit down and watch , for the 900th time, that wonderful western, THE MAGNIFICENT 7! That opening theme, MMMM, goes without saying, but I'll say it, a classic! Of all the characters in that movie, the one that reminds me of THE MAN WITH NO NAME most is, ROBERT VAUGHN. His "plate of beans" speech reminds me of NO NAME'S speech about "somebody he once knew (AFOD)"! Both speech's are delivered with a sense of doom!
Any other characters in MAG 7 remind anybody as a forerunner to THE MAN WITH NO NAME? ::)

belkin you got a gift man, you know the best leone actors that may ? i always wondered just how much clint cut from his lines. what joe says there is very profound, yet we're left to figure joe's past.

in magnificent seven robert vaughn is the olny gunfighter to have self doubt. delicate role in which vaughn shoots- he scores. he resolves responds to his situation. this can't be easy belkin. did he die ? .....and just when we bneed him the most.
keep posting various neames that pop into your head like LOMBARDS did w/ MR. WOODY STROODE.   ;D

Check out VAUGHN'S book, " ONLY VICTIMS". Classic HUAC insight.  ;)

  Steve McQueen's Vin reminds me of the Man with no Name because he does so much without saying more than a few words.  I always thought it was funny that McQueen was always trying to upstage Yul Brynner by doing something in the background with his hat or gun.

  On that little booklet included with the Magnificent 7 dvd it says that McQueen only had 16? lines.  I haven't looked at it in awhile so don't quote me.  Maybe they meant Coburn?

vin told two funny stories, can't rememeber  :P
....."so far so good", and" it seemed like a good idea at the time" were the punchlines.  spactacular when he told what it's really like to be a gun for hire. "pretty soon you get to know feret dealers by their first names. wife ? none.  home ? none.  kid ? none".

"man jumps off a roof. on his way down, each floor he passes people yelling out so how's it going ? the old boy just said so far, so good".  when the  seven decide to go back and fight vin says man jumps into a brier patch. everybody says what the hell we're you thinking of ? seemed like a good idea at the time ". so the  seven, minus harry, decide we go back and make a last stand.

before calvera/eli dies, he asks cris adams/brynner
the same question  mexican bandit asks /hombre/newman. anyone know ?

Robert Vaughn would've been a great Leone character.  Maybe not any of those existing in reality, but I'm sure Sergio could've written him in in our alternate reality.

One actor I would really have loved to see in a Leone film was Robert Ryan.  He was one of Leone's original choices for Colonel Mortimer for FAFDM and I believe he was also up for the Sheriff in OUATITW but had to back out due to commitments on "The Wild Bunch".  He was certainly a great Western character, and almost definitely a Leone character, and I think he could've played many of the characters convincingly.  Mortimer, Angel Eyes, Frank, Cheyenne . . . maybe even Sean in DYS.

I still maintain that Richard Boone would have been a great SW character.

How about a Sergio Leone film-directed film, starring Robert Vaughn, Robert Ryan, and Richard Boone?  Sound good to you, Joe?  ;)

Anybody ever catch VAUGHN, as a young man, in a movie called HELL'S CROSSROADS. If memory serves me correct, he played BOB FORD in this terrific version of the JESSE JAMES story! And again, anybody catch him in the dreadful MAGNIFICENT SEVEN tv series?

That's weird, man. Was talking about the very same movie, this weekend gone, to a mate of mine who saw it with myself, in a fleapit back in Dublin, mid 1960's. It's a flic I would dearly love to catch up on, on DVD!

Maybe Steve McQueen. I mostly want to say him because he is up there near Easwood on my Fav actors list.  Check out a post on him at Off Topic. Anyway. He says hes a drifter and is lookin for money but turns down a bad pay job. When he hears the cause he jumps on the deal with his good conscious. That's my view of No Name, Lookin for some dough, but has a conzcious to help the helpless , not to mention a good shot. 8)

kerm sez : before calvera/eli dies, he asks cris adams/brynner
the same question  mexican bandit asks /hombre/newman. anyone know ?

answer ? both calvere AND hombre bandito ask "WHY ? why did you come back to die".... after i let you off the hook ? because, my friend, once upon a time there was  the code of the west. a bandito knows not of these things or he could never live to be one.  it all started w/ someone in trouble and no one there to help. possibly.

Ah Hombre. Great movie. I like paul Newman a lot in that movie.

"You like to pull the trigger eh?" "I can do it again for you"

"Hey I got a question." "ya?" "How do you think youre gonna get back down that hill" Chick-click "now listen I'm goin down the same way I come up" Bang!
