Title: Mara Krupp
Post by: iceman on October 07, 2005, 04:21:23 PM
Anyone understand why Mara Krupp seems to get a high billing in the cast on the DVD's. She's only on screen for a minute or so yet gets up there next to GMV,LVC and KK on the cover. Crikey Al Mullock gets more viewing than her yet isn't mentioned. Dont tell me its because she's famous in Germany or something ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

is she the woman in the flashback scene? Maybe it's because she's bootylicious

An ugly cow-woman.  :o She's one of the most revolting women I've ever seen in a movie.  I'm sorry if I'm offending anyone, but come on. :P There's more to a woman than breasts, people!  ::)

She might have been regarded as an italians ideal "earth mother ", at least it would be interesting to see what the script says, wether or not she was supposed to be voluptous or bovine.

Check out most of the women in the Lina Wertmuller films, lol.

The three images of il Monco (Eastwood) and Mary (Mara Krupp) together on the bed are really very very very interesting because that scene usually is not inserted in the movie. Are there other images like those ones?
Thank from Italy

sometimes women are given higher billing just to fool viewers into thinking there are some love scenes in the movie. Marianne Koch has a very small role in FOD yet was given higher billing than actors with much bigger roles. Billing is solely dependent on size of the role. There are many movies that have lots of men and one woman in a small role where the woman is given higher billing than she deserves.

Mara Krupp is revolting but IMO her character is meant for laughs more than anything. When you see how she prances for Monco (right in front of her husband), it's funny -- much funnier than if she had been a pretty, skinny girl.
Of course, that may not have been the original intent, since they shot the sex scene; which THANK GOD they did not include in the final cut. But as it is now, where she just have those two brief scenes, it's funny how this nasty woman with the enormous wobbly melons is prancing for Monco 

On the commentary, Frayling says that Krupp was used cuz she bore a strong resemblance to the wife of a producer that Leone detested  ;D

I wonder if that producer got the message when he watched this film.  ;)
