Title: "If I really am the father of Italian Western"...
Post by: moviesceleton on May 25, 2007, 10:07:45 AM
"If I really am the father of Italian Western, how many bastards I've impregnated!" -Leone (Or something like that. I translated that from Finnish.)
Any thoughts?

There's something wrong with either your translation or Leone's original formulation. "How many I've impregnated with bastards" gets at the idea but is inelegant. I would go with "How many bastards I've sired." (or "spawned").

   I think your thinking of a line Tuco spouted in GBU.

I knew it was bad idea to try to translate that by myself ;D! But do you get the idea?

"How many I've impregnated with bastards"


the exact quote is...

"How many S.O.Bs do you think I have given birth to?"

Thanks! O0 I really should have sought that and not tried to translate it by myself. (If you understand what I'm trying to say here.)
