General Discussion / Re: Box Office Receipts?
« on: October 04, 2006, 05:36:09 AM »
Hi Bob

I've never been to a triple feature of the films, but after the success of GBU here in England, there were many showings of a double feature of FOD and FDM.  I hadn't even heard of those two when GBU came out!  From what I remember, they seemed rather short, about an hour and half each, which we now know is because of so many cuts.  It would be rather a feat to sit through the three films in their entirety :)

General Discussion / Re: NFT screening GBU with Eli Wallach
« on: May 28, 2006, 07:59:19 AM »
I found the whole experience very moving.  Eli and his wife and another woman were sitting in the row in front of me.  During the extended torture scene both ladies covered their faces and seemed to be looking through their fingers!  Eli just watched it with no expression at all, although he made the occasional comment to his wife. 

I also thought the interviewer was very nervous and didn't know how to react to some of the things Eli said about people he had worked with, and I was surprised to see Sir Christopher Frayling in the audience afterwards and also wondered why he hadn't done the interview, but still Eli was great and seemed very happy to chat and tell his stories.  I also though he was very gracious in the face of all the applause!

I've finally managed to get a ticket for this event   :D - any arrangements made for meeting up beforehand yet?

Other Films / Re: "Deadwood" (2004-2006)
« on: April 11, 2006, 05:25:33 AM »
Has anyone purchased Deadwood Season 2 (region 2) yet?  I have watched all 12 episodes and am desperate to watch them with the audio commentary by cast and crew, but can't find the link on the disc!  The commentaries are listed on the DVD box but do not seem to appear anywhere in any menu list.  Am I missing something?  I can only think that they are not on the Region 2 DVD, but if not, why would they be listed as an extra?  I have noticed that when the Region 1 set comes out it will consist of 6 discs not the four for the European release, and have documentaries, so I suppose that might have something to do with it. 

Any suggestions gratefully received!

The interview with Eli sounds really interesting.  i've just read his biography and he has lots of stories to tell and a gentle self-deprecating sense of humour.  Unless anything untoward occurs I'll definately be there - easy for me as I live in London.

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Sergio Sollima's Revolver

Grandpa - do you know if Ollie Reed had his voice dubbed in Revolver or is it his own?  Sometimes it sounds like him with the American accent but I'm just not sure.  His natural voice is fairly quiet.  I loved seeing him in the Revolver role, when he was still young and sharp, before he went off the rails.  He was a great actor and I IMO this was one of his best performances.  I thought Fabio Testi was good as well and especially the opening sequence was quite sensitive and yet harsh.  I loved the music too - really glad I bothered to get it.

thank you for your message Cigar Joe.  London is very subdued today, only about half the amount of people normally in the City.  My office is directly above Aldgate station where the first bomb went off.  The building shook with the blast.  We were kept inside by the police until 2.30 in the afternoon and then allowed to walk through the City to the stations to try and get home.  There are reports of people still trapped in one of the tube tunnels, and the latest news is that the death toll has reached 50, but I don't know if that is because people have been found or whether some in hospital have died.  Most people are being quite stoic though, and trying to carry on as normal.

Beebs, the quote is from the Book of Revelations, Chapter 6, verses 1-8 which deals with the four horses of the apocolypse, the end of the world, and all that goes with it.  The line is:

"I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him."

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Good WWII books?
« on: June 21, 2005, 06:33:22 AM »
One of the best WWII books I've read is Flags of our Fathers - its an account of the battle for Iwo Jima and the flag raising, and the stories of the six soldiers who are in the photograph.  Quite an emotional read and a page turner.  I belive Clint E has bought the rights to make it into a film.  That's a relief! Could be a fiasco in the wrong hands.

Sergio Leone News / Re: Great poster offer with new DVDs!
« on: May 20, 2005, 02:44:16 AM »
Hello Ray

My posters also arrived and I'm pleased with them.  BTW you can get film posters of GBU and copies of the Italian poster printed on T shirts in the Vintage Magazine shop in Soho.  They also have a website so you can shop on line, and they sell the frames that fit the film stills/posters properly.  Rather tempting to spend too much in there though!

I enjoyed looking at your pictures Ramon.  I was last in Almeria just after Christmas.  Drove through the desert but didn't stop at the film sets as I had spent a week there the previous September.   However did you discover all the desert locations?  You must have been researching for years.
