This is the LEONE board and nobody mentions that Lee van Cleef is in it :).

Lee van Cleef had some great funny lines in spahettis.  My favorite is "I generally smoke just after I eat; why don't you come back in about 10 minutes."

The Bad Seed (2018); the most recent remake of the 1956 film.  Rate 5/10, Mrs. Cusser wanted to watch it because a sequel to it is being broadcast in May on Lifetime.

Rob Lowe directed and stars; guest appearance by Patty McCormack (Rhoda in the play and 1956 version).

I just watched "A Bullet for the General" for the first time.  Yes, Volante was good, but I didn't think much of the film.

A Fistful of Dollars / Fistful of Dollars postcard - French?
« on: April 26, 2022, 05:33:36 PM »
Years ago my sister sent me this postcard, believe French.  Note that Ennio Morricone is listed, and that the photo is from Sad Hill cemetery in GBU.



Here's a lobby photo from For a Few Dollars More, also looks French.

Durango to Silverton Coloado (still running) is a narrower gauge, built that way because of the terrain, for mining.

Of course, the ONLY time I was in Durango I actually had tickets for this, but starting THAT DAY the railway was closed due to fire threat.  We drove up, saw flames maybe about 1 mile from the raod; fear was that a coal could spark another fire (early 2000s).  So we went on a 4-hour "City Slickers" cattle round-up with the refund money (the girls all ride super well, I'm the greenhorn).

In late 2019, we went on the Verde Canyon Railroad in Arizona, also a narrow gauge railroad built for mining because of the terrain.  The Perkinsville train station was used in How the West was Won (Eli Wallach, George Peppard there for that scene) and for the beginning scene of The Sons of Katie Elder.

But apparently no one knows what became of the "rock" from the GBU final gunfight.  Likely still buried somewhere at the restored site...

Same with the prop gold coins....must be "somewhere".

For the Los Angeles Leone Exhibit, Eastwood lent them the pistol, poncho, etc.  I don't know if those made it to the later European exhibits, but I know Eastwood wore the poncho in a parade a few years ago.

Anyway, I'm glad Cusser is being vigilant while doing his stint with the Merch Police. Hey, Cusser, you don't happen to own that item, do you?
No, I don't own that one.  I did have a GBU coffee mug from about the time of the Leone Exposition in Los Angeles, but my brother knocked it off my mantlepiece and broke it.  I don't see that one being available at this time, but I did buy some extra ones and gave away two to my brothers, and I have asked if they could locate these.  I also think I sequestered one for myself, but it's "hidden" somewhere. 

I own at least one other GBU coffee mug though.  And besides books on spaghetti westerns, I have a piece of The Arch.

While waiting for "48 Hours" to begin last night, flipped on Mackenna's Gold near the end.

I must say that I hadn't seen such poor rear projection and day-for-night shooting, and earthquake special effects since Godzilla films made much earlier. 

Let's just say that I will NOT ever watch the first 90 minutes of this !!!

I'm not sure that this thread is the "best" one for me to add this information.

The rattlesnake revolver makes its appearance in Rawhide episode "Incident at Alabaster Plain".  Bandit/gunfighter Ward Mastic (Mark Richman) has this revolver, refers to it three times in the episode, first time teasing Rowdy (Eastwood) to look out for the snake as they face each other, then says the snake " is oiled and packed in leather" and a close up of it shown in Mastic's holster.



Later, Mastic shows the rattlesnake grip to his stepfather, showing him the rattlesnake on both sides.

"Incident at Alabaster Plain" is the second episode of the first season of Rawhide. It aired on 16 January 1959. The silver inlaid snake grips adorn both sides of the traditional walnut grip. Rowdy Yates has the gun in the finale and he hands it to Pete Nolan played by Sheb Wooley.   Eastwood had purchased the gun from the production company and owns it to this day. In The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), the snake grips are seen on a different gun, the 1851 Navy Colt.
