Sergio Leone News / Re: Another great Leone book on its way
« on: Today at 02:49:27 AM »
Sorry I got the 2 threads mixed up.
So to say something on topic: I think I spotted it in a bookstore the other day. I was running out of time before closure so I couldnít check it out. Iíll read a few pages next time.


I ordered mine at Amazon UK few days ago and it was shipped immediately.
About 40 pounds to Germany ($50.-), that's great (46 Euro - Amazon German asks for 60 Euro!).

Good year for 1969 classics :). We're just about to finish out 100+ page
Cinema Retro special issue on WILD BUNCH and I also work on a big 50th anniversary
book on another '69 classic.

Was this a made for television film?
It looks and esp. Sounds like one musically.

Watched the DVD thinking it was a classic Audie Murphy flick.
The RoyBean bit seems lifted almost exactly from MAN OF THE WEST ( a Gary Cooper film with Walter Brennan as Bean).

You mean The Westerner (1940)

Christ Stopped at Eboli (1979) - 9/10. Saw this almost exactly 40 years ago at the 1979 Chicago International Film Festival. I couldn't remember much about it and decided to try it again now that a restored version is touring. It was showing at Film Forum and I took the wife. She loved it. I also was impressed. Gian Maria Volonte plays Carlo Levi, an intellectual placed in internal exile by Mussolini during the war with Ethiopia (ca. 1935). This was made for Italian TV and it's a quality production in 4 parts. Part one is mostly Levi's journey to his place of exile, Lucania, the end of the world. In part 2 Levi's sister (Lea Masari) visits him, and he secures the services of a housekeeper (Irene Pappas). In part 3 he reluctantly begins providing the peasants with medical treatment (he trained as a doctor but heretofore never practiced). In part 4 he gets the better of his masters just before the war ends and his amnesty comes through. Based on, I gather, real events. It's an impressive bit of filmmaking at 220 minutes. I guess some feel this is Rossi's masterpiece and it certainly must be Volonte's.

saw it about 40 years ago also, thanks

for FAFDM, I have the MGM DVD, MGM BRD, Mondo BRD, and this new KL BRD (which I did not watch yet). So I have 4 copies.

for GBU, I have the theatrical release DVD, MGM Restored DVD, MGM BRD, Mondo BRD, and the KL piss BRD. So that's 5.

FOD I have the MGM DVD, MGM BRD, and the beautiful Ripley's BRD. 3 copies

OUATITW: Paramount DVD and BRD. 2 copies

DYS: MGM DVD and BRD. 2 copies

OUATITW: WB DVD, WB BRD, and WB extended Cut BRD. 3 copies.

MNIN: RLJ BRD. 1 copy

That's just hard copies. I also purchased on iTunes, and have on my computer, digital copies of FOD, FAFDM, GBU, OUATITW, and OUATIA. (I believe FOD, FAFDM, and GBU are the MGM DVD versions; OUATITW is the Paramount DVD version; and OUATITW is the WB DVD version).

you win

Probably not all of these are true Noirs, but oh well.

Same with the first list.

I already own The Killer That Stalked New York, and 711 Ocean Drive seen The Black Book and Johnny Allegro I've never seen Address Unknown, Escape in the Fog, The Guilt of Janet Ames, or Assignment Paris! and not sure I'd want to.

I don't care all that much for Nina Foch, Paul Lukas, George Raft, or Rosalind Russell.

Assignment in Paris does have Dana Andrews and Audrey Totter.

Take the bullet for us....

Got the book today. Pretty much everything we could have hoped for - a real treasure for those who love the film. Can't wait to dig in properly. It's huge and filled with pics and interviews.

Thanks for the info will be looking for more of your findings when you do dig in.

                                                                                   ALIBI MARK (1937). Rated 6/10.

I have to admit that I was drawn to this by it's intriguing title. TCM have got this. It's also on You Tube. It is only a 13 minute cheapie but I couldn't resist adding it to my crime list. It's about a homeless man who gets accused of murder.

It illustrates the Great Depression era when people hitched free rides on trains. By people who had been cast adrift in that period.

Thanks I'll check it out

Over the past few decades, home releases have included a logo that was being used by the studio at the time of release. The UA logo (9th logo) that you posted was used from 1982 to 1987.

Like I said it was "something" like what I posted the "UA" but without the United Artists below. I saw the films on Times Square in 66-67 and it definitely wasn't the colorful one.


I remember something close to this logo for the films.

Roma (2018) entertaining enough, interesting location/sets beautifully shot 7/10. Not something I'd watch again though.
