Once Upon A Time In The West / So Who Buries Frank?
« on: June 29, 2004, 11:55:26 AM »
Harmonica shoots Frank, bids 'the woman' goodbye, and rides off with what's his name strapped over the horse.  What happens to Frank's corpse?  Is it left lying in the desert for the crows and kites to come eat up?  Does Jil Bury it?  What?

"There’s something deliciously ripe going on in director Sergio Leone’s deservedly popular spaghetti western trilogy, featuring A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. These stylized studies of frontier brutality are orgies of more than simply violence. Early on Leone develops a schtick around the incessant inhalation of noxious substances derived from the tobacco plant and the recurrent deployment of handheld projected missiles that he soon builds to a fevered crescendo in the middle child of his trio, For a Few Dollars More. He indulges in a certain sexually-charged imagery lifted straight from film noir, but which he adeptly adapts to the demands and rigors of the spaghetti western genre of which he was both creator and master. Though Leone appears to back off some from the first two film’s steady leer in the series wildly successful finale, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, I reckon an argument could be made that it’s really just an elaborately staged menage a trois between Eli Wallach, Lee van Cleef and Clint Eastwood. Anyways, throughout his magnificent trilogy, Leone crams his work with the sorta man on man action that would have made those most infamous ancient Greeks proud."

Here's the link.  It gets even better.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Harmonica's brother part of Frank's group?

I wonder why Frank was hanging him?  As the brother was cussing Frank, it was as though they knew each other personally.  Could his brother have been in Frank's gang?  Being punished for crossing him?

After killing Frank, Harmonica rode off.  Years later, during the Great Depression, he became a bare-knuckles boxer for cash and changed his name to Chaney.
