Hey Blondie, no offence intended, but if you don't feel like playing the game why shouldn't you let the others do it?

I'm not preventing anyone from playing I'm just being realistic.

I'll go with Fistful of Dollars as well, but seriously what's the point of this thread? We all know that the final showdown will be between The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly and Once Upon a time in the West.So lets get down to it. Who should be the Leone Survivor, Man with no Name or Harmonica?

There is not an old and new West. One of the titles of this film is "There was Once the West" Jill and the train arriving represents the growth of a society. This town runned by Jill is becoming civilized so Harmonica and Cheyenne don't belong here. Morton was also more civilized the Frank which is why he was always telling him that money is more powerful then a gun, but in the West the gun rules.

Harmonica: So you realized you're not a business man after all.

Frank: Just a man!

Harmonica: Ancient race.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:Ebert's New "Great Movies" Essay!
« on: August 04, 2003, 08:25:47 PM »
I'm going to agree that this review comes as a surprise, because Ebert rarely speaks of Leone, so like many of you I was surprised. Nonetheless, it was a great review, better then I expected.

Batman. I think Sergio Leone would have done a great Batman film.

Once Upon A Time In America / Re:Is Leone the ticket-seller or not?
« on: June 16, 2003, 07:26:10 PM »
It really depends when that scene was filmed because lets face it with the exception of the nose and weight the ticket seller and Sergio Leone look a-like.

And both IMDb and AMC have said that the ticket seller is Sergio Leone.

Now I saw a documentary on Leone where it says that he became very ill during and after filming. So perhaps it depends when the scene was filmed I guess.

Sergio Leone News / Re:De Niro about Leone (and Scorsese)
« on: June 16, 2003, 07:01:37 PM »
Well, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese are great friends and have great working relationship but just because De Niro says he likes Leone better doesn't mean anything. De Niro and Scorsese have worked 8 times because they have had the chance. De Niro and Leone only worked once because Leone passed away.

General Discussion / Re:"Duck, You Sucker!" vs. "Fistful of Dynamite"
« on: June 16, 2003, 06:47:08 PM »
I like the title "A Fistful of Dynamite" but "Duck, You Sucker!" seems like an appropiate title as well.

Well, lets put it this way. Name the film "A Fistful of Dynamite" because first of all there is a fistful of dynamite and Sean is not only a dynamite expert but he is killed in an explosion.

Now at the end when Juan asks "What about me?" just have the words "DUCK, YOU SUCKER!" appear.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Harmonica`s scar
« on: June 16, 2003, 06:29:20 PM »
I think he may have cut the scene out so there wouldn't be any connections between The Man with No Name and Harmonica.

Remember that the role of Harmonica was originally written with Eastwood in mind. Whatever were the original plans for the film is unknown to me but since Harmonica already is Eastwood-ish and since OUATITW is like an epic version of the Dollar Trilogy I think Leone didn't want to make more connections.  

For a Few Dollars More / How Does Indio Know?!
« on: June 13, 2003, 08:38:12 PM »
Okay I may be able to figure out how Indio knows that the Colonel is a bounty hunter but how the hell does he know Blondie is a bounty hunter?! Did he see it in a newspaper like the Colonel or what?!

For a Few Dollars More / Re:A few discrepancies in the movie
« on: June 13, 2003, 08:35:00 PM »
For fairytale's sake i will stick with the idea that he keeps it and buys himself a pig farm.

Sorry guys but even if we hate to admit it Unforgiven is not the unofficial fourth installment.

For a Few Dollars More / Re:Better Lee Van Cleef Character?
« on: June 13, 2003, 08:31:41 PM »
Yes I am aware that Angel Eyes had more screen time. I have the DVD and seen the deleted scenes. I really like the scene where he is searching for Bill Carson in the camp with the confederate soldiers.

Still the Colonel was a better performance because while I love the character of Angel Eyes and think Van Cleef did a wonderful job. As Colonel he not only had more screen time but interacted better with the rest of the characters. As Angel Eyes there wasn't that much interaction either.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Life after OUTITW
« on: June 13, 2003, 08:16:55 PM »
How many times did Bronson and Coburn work together?

They did the Magnificent 7, Great Escape, and Hard Times.

Is that it or is there more?

Okay let's clear some things. First of all Clint and Sergio didn't leave GBU with a feud. In fact the role of Harmonica was written with Eastwood in mind. Which would explain why Harmonica is so Eastwood-ish. The role was intended for him. Now Eastwood didn't refuse to do the opening sequence. He didn't do the opening sequence for the same reason he didn't play Harmonica.

After the success of the Dollar Trilogy Eastwood became a star and he got dozen of movie roles. And here is a list of all movies Eastwood released in 1968 and 69:

Two Mules for Sister Sara
Paint Your Wagon
Where Eagles Dare
Coogan's Bluff
Hang 'Em High

So go figure.

Also the role of Sean in Duck You Suckers was not written but offered to Clint Eastwood. He turned it down for two words: Dirty Harry.
