Sergio Leone News / Re: TCM Clint Birthday festival on May 31

Thanks for the heads-up(s)..!

Oh my, how great to see that mistake in somebody else's typing! I know, it's stupid of me, but... I keep typing it this way all the time. If not worse. I don't know why it's just this typo that keeps reocurring in my writing, it simply is.

Welcome aboard! :D

Thanks! Btw, I think it's kinda evident - it's the whole 'e' following an 'm' thing. While typing it, you accidentally repeat that pattern..

Hey everyone - it's been a very long time since joining, and I never really had the time to contribute in earnest, so this is
basically the beginning (again).

I'm 41, and a life-long Leonegeek. I was 11 or 12 when I first saw Once Upon A Time In The West on t.v. and immediately
fell in love with it's strange rhythms, haunting score, and complex dynamics. The soundtrack was one of the first vinyl
records I saved up for and bought, and I must've watched the double-vhs a zillion times.

In 1984, I went to see Once Upon A Time In America in the theater. I was 15, and though it was just a glimpse of what
SL intended I still loved it (at the time I didn't know I was watching a butchered, rearranged cut).

Over the years, I've gone out of my way to see cast memebers of SL films in person (Clint, Eli Wallach, Charles Bronson,
Jason Robards, Claudia Cardinale..), and a couple years back I got to see Morricone's first ever live U.S. performance
(which nearly brought me to tears).

I've got all the films, all the special edition soundtracks, all the books, and a box of posters and lobby cards.

It's great to be here (finally), and I really look forward to spending time with like-minded die-hards. Thanks..!

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: What a "powerful" movie !

I was born in the late Summer of '68 (I was forming while the film was) and I can
honestly say I know very few people my age who appreciate it. Sad but true.

OK, no  fighting.  Insert the second disc of the set in your DVD Player and on the Main Menu of the DVD highlight the menu entry 'Documentaries.' Now press the 'Left' arrow key on your remote control and the title 'Once Upon A Time In The West' will be highlighted. If you press the 'Enter' key now, you will be treated to a very cool – and brand-new - looking trailer for the movie.

Thanks guys - that is cool. As if they asked Tarantino to create a trailer...

Just imagine how many more Masterpieces Leone would have directed if he wasn't taken from us so young. This project was sure to be one of them.

I think about it all the time -  but not the quantity so much as the quality of whatever he did.

6.5 - 7.

Thanks for sharing so much - that sounds absolutely fantastic!

Hopefully one day I can venture over and do the same..

The Colossus of Rhodes / Re: Leone's First Film
« on: June 30, 2007, 05:16:43 AM »
I liked the film a lot. Saw it at a Leone retrospective in Queens, N.Y. back
in '99 - which at the time was pretty much the only place to see it.

I picked it up on Tuesday at SunCoast Video, for $9.99.

I've got the pressbook and 4 11"x14" lobbies from 'Once/West'
2 big Spanish lobby sets and 3 8"x10" lobbies from 'Once/ America'
A huge 47"x63" French poster and 10 lobbies from 'Duck/Sucker'
The pressbook from 'For A Few'
5 books on Leone, and books on 'Once/West' and 'Once/America'
CD soundtracks from 'Fistful' through 'Once/America', all extended
editions - including the 2 disc 'Duck/Sucker'.

..and I've seen Eastwood, Bronson, Robards, Wallach, Cardinale,
and Morricone in person (the latter in concert).

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: What if... Frank won?

That would make the film a 'spaghetti noir'.

Duck, You Sucker / Re: So what title best fits this film?
« on: June 25, 2007, 12:26:59 PM »
I'm not exactly sure what Leone's final decision was for the title. I would have to look this up to find out. Maybe somebody here would know?

I think Frayling said something about Leone believing that this was a popular(!)
American saying.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Not Even at the Point of Dying?

I love that this thread exists(!)

I've always kinda held with the belief (despite no actual proof) that Harmonica PROJECTS his
memories at Frank in the film's finale. Dramatic, yes - but a cool concept.

There are more things than Heaven and Earth, and Harmonica seems to be more/less than
human. He'a always just kinda THERE - materializing into scenes. I love that.
