General Discussion / Dinner with Leone (on DVD at least)
« on: August 19, 2004, 06:14:35 PM »
I'm having a spaghetti western night with a group of friends. My plan is to cook up some spaghetti, meat balls, sausage and good wine for my buddies who aren't familiar with good Italian-American cuisine.

A silly question but...what would the esteemed members of this group serve at such a meal? By the way, the film we will be watching will be The Good the bad and the ugly.

Perhaps something like the stew that Angel Eyes wolfs down in his opening scene?


Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Tarantino
« on: August 19, 2004, 06:10:16 PM »
Tarantino is still very young and while he makes all the "correct" hommages to directors that came before him (and more accomplished than him) he still has a long way to go. Call me a traditionalist, but I think Kill Bill is one of the most over rated films of recent memory. On the other hand, Pulp Fiction is one of the funniest films I have ever seen and can watch it at least once a week.

Although it's a completely different kind of film, I think the fellow who directed Three Kings has the potential to be a Leone heir. Time will tell.


Ennio Morricone / Re:MORRICONE NEWS.....
« on: August 19, 2004, 06:05:09 PM »
Wow! I'm so sorry my vacation time is used up. I wish this kind of program would come to NY. Unfortunately a concert of this kind is so expensive to mount and without the government funding that these concerts enjoy in Europe, it's impossible to have in America.

I've been listening to Morricone's non-film music and some of it is very modern, almost difficult to warm up to but worth exploring. He is an excellent organist (he played at Leone's funeral, I believe) and I wish he would record more of his non-film music.


Other Films / Re: My Darling Clementine (1946)

Oh yes, Stagecoach, a wonderful film. You really can't go wrong with any John Ford western. I would also recommend Ft. Apache; Rio Grande and, of course, The Searchers.

Other Films / My Darling Clementine (1946)
« on: August 12, 2004, 05:31:26 PM »
What a beautiful work! A young Henry Fonda, Victor Mature, Ward Bond, Walter Brennan chewing up scenery, a young John Ireland and dear God, the camera work!

What do you all think about this film? John Ford films?

Speaking of Ford, there's a good Leone connection to Ford's "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," which has Lee Van Cleef and Woody Strode in the cast.

Thanks, I'll get hold of the Frayling book.


General Discussion / Women don't like Leone, or Westerns?
« on: August 05, 2004, 05:28:54 PM »
I have never been with a woman who liked Leone. Girlfriends, a wife, more girlfriends (to her credit, one of them did like him) and another wife. These women had discerning tastes in literature and film, but they were no-go on Leone. In my experience many women don't like westerns either (although my wife loves HBO's Deadwood, making her the first woman in my life to like a western)

What do you folks think? I'm new to these boards and am sure there are women here who like Leone?

Hope I didn't start a controversy.



General Discussion / Reading Leone?
« on: August 05, 2004, 05:21:16 PM »
Can any of you very smart people recommend a good book about Leone and his films? The Frayling book, Something to do with Death, seems to be well-received. Any thoughts?

On a different note...Does anyone know of Leone scripts in print? Either in Italian or English.



Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Who killed Cheyenne?
« on: August 03, 2004, 01:08:32 PM »
Thanks! I thought Cheyenne said, "that half-man, Mr. Churchill." I thought to myself, "who the hell was Mr. Churchill?" All is clear now, thanks again.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Who killed Cheyenne?
« on: August 03, 2004, 04:34:52 AM »
I know this is probably quite obvious, but through lack of good hearing and my tv's poor sound quality I missed the answer. Who dealt the Cheyenne the fatal gunshot?
