Title: gian maria's ability to horseback
Post by: KERMIT on May 05, 2006, 08:29:34 AM
when the madman indio & gang ride into el paso to rob the bank they look like the hell's angels on horseback. CJ pointed out how ramone could horseback sitting straight up. gian maria seems
to be in such "cruise control" on his horse. he looks errect, but unconcious on his hoese when pulling into town, head bobbing around on what looks to be angel eye's horse.

at least angle eye's ? a nasty dude,  a nasty dude w/ a plan. indio is out of his gourd motioning nino for another toke of wacky tobacky.  ;D

I'd say he's a pretty good horseman. In FOD he seems so in control. When he jumps on that horse after meeting Joe he seems like that.

I noticed that too. Clint in this movie didn't look in control. Look how he struggled with the horse after the El Paso bank robbery or when he meets Lee Van Cleef near the mountain pass ( remember? Clint's talking horse!  ;D )

when clint did FOD he had just come from the set of rawhide.  when FFDM started shooting, i'd think clint
had already decided to be a director and his horseback skills wern't up to par.

the only guy i know who rides like gian might be richard forester who has that same stocky build.

Well, Clint does himself 2 stunts with a horse in the dolalr trilogie... In FOD, he stands on the back of his horse, and in GBU, he picks up Eli after the shooting of the 2nd rope. That's not to bad... (I have no idea for the "My mule doesn't like people laugh' ").

Volonte's a good horseman...the best rider I've seen in SW is Gemma...who did his own stunts...having been  a stuntman before starring in westerns.
He does a great stunt in the first Ringo movie..where he dismounts from a galloping horse..that's exceptional.

I always wanted to see Pistol for Ringo.

I've been looking for "Pistol of Ringo" for a while. Hard to find

Clint's allergic to horses so I think I can understand why he's not an expert.

I always that was just a rumor.

no rumor. i read it in "clint " an unofficial bio.
the book was a good read. found it at the library
and it's fairly dated.

it also mentioned clint suffered from some sort of anxiety attacks that would find him wriggling on the floor of the set.  we all know clint is much more in charge behind the camera.  we all have our limitations ,
as do those  "tell all " bios....which ARE fun to read.  ;D

That's a good topic idea. I won't steal it from you, though. You should start a "Who's your Top 10 extraodinary people?"

Well, are you going to make the topic? I appreciate you giving us the credit but I have to say, it was all you, friend. ;)

I'm here I just have a more temporary limited computer access, (one is down, lol), so I'm not on as for as long time as I was in the past, also been guiding but the recent floods have put the kibosh on that for at least a week.

I'll try and think of a list too, but it will be a while.

Sorry, I didn't mean to be pushy. I just didn't know if you were waiting on me to make it. I didn't want to anyway, your idea. I'm thinking it would be best to leave it at top 10 most extraordinary people. just people. Because we have the 'best actor in the history of cinema" topic already.

Cheers,
Beebs

there is some kind of glitch in the board, I get the same message ramdomly Kerm, I can get around it sometimes by instead of clicking new click on page 1-2, whatever and it gets you there.

I've mention it before to Chris

Kermit. As far as I can see there is nothing for you to apologize about.

Peacemaker, I suggested to Kermit that he make a topic in Off Topic Discussion called "Your Top 10 Extraordinary People"
That's what the list is about.
