I think Yul Brynner is standing on what looks like a stack of leftover OUATITW ties in the great opening of 'Adios,Sabata'. :)

Sorry if this is old news, but from a filming standpoint the tracks were laid in when everything else was prepared before shooting began, then covered. From a story standpoint ,McBain maybe laid in a few feet because he had such a chubby about the railroad prospect?

I have to say the quality of the Legend CD is quite poor, just like the original U/A LP, but it's the only full score available (there are a few boots, but the sound is lacking on them as well). There's some REALLY nice sounding stereo cues that have appeared on a few comp LPs, but why the rest have never surfaced remains a mystery.

These pics have always fascinated me. As stated. he's clearly in his FDM gear, but other than that..quien sabe? If they are just publicity shots, why go to a remote location. As it's near Madrid, maybe they went for a day while they were shooting at Hoyo De Manzanares (the FOD town, redressed for FDM as the opening town and White Rocks)?

I've been more disturbed about the camera shadow as the stuck henchman turns around. :)

Could be any early SW but ,as the town looks basically the same, it could well be 'Pistols Don't Argue' (the film shot back-to-back with FOD).

Yeah, often the pairings didn't make a lot of sense, but the SWs the majors had sure did sterling duty as the lower half of a double bill: I saw an ad for 'The Wrecking Crew' + 'The Big Gundown', and went to see 'My Name Is Nobody' with 'Swashbuckler' and again with 'American Graffitti'!

For a Few Dollars More / Re: Col. Mortmier on horseback

Van Cleef was an excellent rider: Check out 'Death Rides A Horse', 'Sabata' or 'Beyond The Law' for some examples of his skill. It is true,though, that stuntman/actor Romano Puppo often doubled for him in long shots. I think he was still quite ill (not his knees) at the time  FAFDM was shot, so maybe a lot of horseback time wasn't an option.. Compare how much more hale he looks a year later in GBU.

Great pictures (thanks!). Too bad they've painted some of the buildings,though. :(
