Duck, You Sucker / Soundtrack Question
« on: June 29, 2016, 07:06:32 AM »
Hey everyone, I haven’t posted on here for a few years now, mainly because I ran out of Leone stuff to talk about. Hope everyone has been well, nothing too crazy going on with me save for the normal life progression and whatnot. Anyway I had a soundtrack related question and came here to ask those who know best!

I was discussing Duck You Sucker with a coworker and I was struck by his interpretation of the final flashback based on the infamous music cue. Like many Leone fans, it’s really bugged me ever since getting the DVD so many years ago (my how a decade goes quick). Now that I have more knowledge and equipment, I wish to put together my own fan edit with correct musical cues so I don't quietly curse to myself every time I view the film.

I know for certain that the flashback to the pub where Mallory kills his friend should feature the Giu la Testa #6 track on the expanded soundtrack (the restoration folks seem to have used Giu la Testa #5 instead with an odd cut and cross dissolve, why this was changed in the first place I haven’t a clue). The final flashback should obviously feature the full Giu la Testa theme that was released initially on vinyls in the 60s and 70s instead of the horrendous mix of GLT #5 again and another version of the main theme (I think I Figli Morti on the CD). The rest of the alterations seem minimal and IMO does not warrant reworking for my personal edit.

My main confusion comes from the end credits which, after hearing an Italian cut of the film online, sounds different from anything I’ve heard on the expanded CD. Here is a link to it (starts at 2:40):

Is it GLT #5 with a PAL speedup? Or is it a different version of the main theme that was never released?

Other Films / McKinley! - a film by yours truly
« on: April 13, 2011, 09:29:50 PM »
Hello all! Recently I have been working with my film team on a short comedy that we entered into Campus Movie Fest, the nation's leading college film festival. We won Best Comedy at my school, as well as Best Actor for the role of the villain, and a secondary prize, plus we get to move onto the international level.  8)

Anyhows, I have posted a link to the full version of the movie below rather than the shorter (and I feel slightly inferior) version currently competing in the festival. I would certainly appreciate some comments, thoughts and suggestions regarding the film. It is titled "McKinley!"

Other Films / To those who live in or near NYC

All through the month of June and July, the world famous film forum in downtown Manhattan will be hosting Anthony Mann films including all the western collaborations with James Stewart!

The only problem I have is choosing which ones to go see!

Just wanted to give everybody a heads up on a new project by yours truly. Over the past few months I have been writing and planning for my new short film, The Harringtons. It's a western which we plan to submit to a national college film festival, if it does good enough, I plan to extend it and try for more prestigous festivals.

Here's some production stills:

As soon as the project is completed I'll be sure to post it here for y'all.

Once Upon A Time In The West / National Film Registry

Apparently this movie has now been selected as part of the National Film Registry.

Good to see it's finally getting the attention it deserves!  O0

General Discussion / Heat and the Old West
« on: July 31, 2009, 04:23:04 PM »
One thing I've often wondered is how people in the old west were able to cope with the extreme heat while they were wearing layers of heavy clothes. It was the victorian age when showing skin was a big no-no and besides, back then you would be considered lower class if you had a sun burn (obviously no one was rolling up their sleeves either.

So how did they tolerate it?

Once Upon A Time In The West / Youtube video - some alternate shots
« on: June 13, 2009, 07:01:36 PM »
To those who were not able to download the leonenut full version of the film, I found the Italian opening credits with alternate shots (quite a few might I add).

What's interesting is how even the credits are altered in this version. They're much more obtrusive than the American credits appearing at awkward moments (between two shots), and very minor characters are mentioned above keenan Wynn and Frank Wolff. Not to mention the sound design kinda sucks in places.

Off-Topic Discussion / Movie Premiere Photos
« on: April 13, 2008, 09:40:33 PM »
Here's some photos from my film's premiere that I'd like to share with you guys.

It was quite a big turnout.

The two main stars of the film, Joseph Pollicino and Christopher Grasso.

Everyone rushed onto the stage after the film.

Some of the cast that's shown here is Terrence Smith, Andrew Harts, David Harel, and Rita Calviello.

Joe really looks like a movie star here for some reason.

Kenneth Beattie, myself in the back with the long hair and beard, Robert Fauci, and Binh Luu.

My executive producer Felipe Dieppa with one of the main actors, Kenneth Beattie.

Some of the cast and crew.

There are more and I'll post them another time.

I found this old trailer on youtube. Very scratchy and obvious color fading, but at the end where it says Musique de Ennio Morricone, you can see what looks like a frame from the missing horse flashback scene. You can find it at exactly 4:00 on the timer:

I'm almost positive it's a frame from the missing flashback scene.

Off-Topic Discussion / The Brink of Eternity
« on: March 29, 2008, 02:06:36 PM »
Last night I premiered my film The Brink of Eternity to an audience of over 300 people and got a standing ovation! The greatest night in my life so far. It was shown in my high school's auditorium to students, teachers, parents, and people from other places.

This was the first time I ever shot a film on a big scale. We filmed in a studio, had a great lighting guy, filmed in a helicopter, and had a budget of around 5000 dollars.

I'm trying not to brag, but I'm just so excited, I want to tell everybody. Once I get the pictures of the event from my friend I'll be sure to post them here.

I just want to say thanks to the mods, Banjo, Leone Admirer, Sonny, and to Cal, for being so open-minded and taking everyone's suggestions. The recent changes liven things up.

You're all doing one hell of a job. Cheers to you!
