Title: The Baby Jesus
Post by: General Sibley on January 13, 2004, 11:02:46 AM
Do you think the ungodly whining of the Baby Jesus in FOD is what inspired Sergio to incorporate child-killing into his future movies?  That has got to be the shrillest, most obnoxious kid on film - I'm sure they all wanted to strangle him on the set.

You'll notice that in FAFDM, El Indio gets out of jail and confronts the guy who ratted him out.   He takes one look at the whiny kid and immediately tells his henchmen to take the mother and kid outside and give them the good treatment.   They probably sat behind him on the airplane.

The whiny kid in FAFDM was played by one of Leone's own children.

Shame they didn't gag that kid in FOD though!

That was Sergio's kid in FAFDM - and he let that madman Indio kill him?  Wow, that's cold-blooded.

Allright, this is kind of a side track... The most obnoxious baby of them all has to be the one in Eraserhead by Lynch. Well, if you can call it a baby. Sorry about the tiny degree of relevance to this topic.

How about the scene when his mom bitch slaps him up side the head. :P

Maybe she was pissed at him for getting caught?

Don't be silly.  There are plenty of more whiny movie children out there.  It's a curse.

But Jesus was pretty annoying. :P

Was Baby Jesus dubbed for the English version?

I watched Fistful of Dollars again last week, and that thought crossed my mind. Maybe they got somebody else to dub him. If so, I wonder how the boy sounded in real life.

THE BABY JESUS IS ANNOYING AS HELL! BUT I THINK THE KID PEDDLING FOR MONEY IN FAFDM IS MUCH MORE ANNOYING. IN FACT I THINK IN THAT IN THE SCENCE WHERE EASTWOOD GRABS THE LITTLE WHELP  AND CALLS HIM A "SAWED OFF LITTLE RUNT"  THERE IS A EXTENDED PART WHERE HE BITCH SLAPS HIM IN SOME VERSIONS.




OK I AM JOKING BUT IT SHOULD BE I THERE




GOOD THING ANGEL EYES KILLS THE KID IN THE NEXT MOVIE. EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT THE SAME CHARACTER IT IS THE SAME ACTOR.

  The kid Jesus is far and away the worst/most annoying kid actor I've ever seen.  But one I've always disliked is Brandon de Wilde in Shane.  I've never been a big fan of the movie, but his Joey character bugs me.  When he's yelling Shane's name at the end and we're supposed to feel somewhat emotional, I find myself telling him to shut up.  Who knows, maybe its just me.

I hope so! If that's really how that kid sounds...I think Jesus' voice sounds more like a teenager trying to sound like a kid more than anything.

I have Italian version and saw English version before, and the voices really are different. Italian doesn't sound so terribly whiny, but I can't tell whether it is much better or only little bit.

Non-Leone lovers should never see this thread. For two reasons:

One) They suck.

Two) They might misinterpret the comments "THE BABY JESUS SHOULD HAVE BEEN SHOT!" if they haven't seen the movie.

Reason 2 makes a very good point!   ;D

Tuco would probably kill the Baby Jesus after about six minutes.  And what's more, his parents would thank him for it, and give him a bonus.  ;D

   Brandon DeWilde  undoubtedly was the most annoying child actor in westerns. That Shining kid was pretty bad, too.

Anybody else here agree that if the people in California played the voice of baby Jesus that the two trapped whales would swim the other way back into the ocean?  That was the most annoying voice ever, way worse than the voice of the daughter in "A History of Violence", which didn't fit the family.

Try new Baby Jesus brand decongestant, guaranteed to loosen the most stubborn phlegm. This may be an explanation, as to why child actors behave so F***ed up, when they get older.
