For a Few Dollars More / Mike's FDM memorabilia
« on: December 21, 2010, 11:43:08 AM »
Here's some stuff on FDM. Somehow the most difficult one to collect. Italian
first release paper is really hard to find (and very expensive). Same goes
for the UK and various other countries.
I'll start with the complete German first release material:
Scarce double panel (very few copies survived), rare advance 1-sh, 1sh Style 'A' & 'B'
plus the set of 24 cards. For the 1972 RR's Style A was reprinted with a different slogan
at the top and a set of 16 cards was reprinted (so 8 cards of the first release are
quite rare). For the early 80's RR Renato Casaro created two nice new posters
(1-sh &  2-sh) and a set of 18 cards was reprinted. At least one card was used
that didn't exist before).

A Fistful of Dollars / Mike's FOD memorabilia
« on: December 20, 2010, 03:50:40 PM »
guess I'll keep on posting some posters & photos...

Here's the bigger part of my FOD collection. I'll start with
ITALIA. 2-foglio (100x140cm), locandina & 8 photobusta (2 still missing).
They all date back to 1966 when most of the FOD so-called 'first-release'
material was printed. It is all the same styles and design as printed
in late 1964, but because it was released so poorly in the beginning,
naturally there wasn't much material printed. When the film became
a hit, this stuff displayed here came into action (still very hard to find & expensive):

Off-Topic Discussion / BLAKE EDWARDS 1922 - 2010
« on: December 16, 2010, 03:12:25 PM »
Another one of my favorites gone.
A low rich life with many ups and downs, a true
inspiration for film makers all over the world.

DAYS OF WINE & ROSES & 10 are among my favorites.
But he made many more worthwhile entries.

Thanks for a different 'style of comedy' :)

Not a great week. Two of my favorites gone in a matter of three days :(

Next to Rock Hudson (& Jack Arnold :)) probably the best guy
that came out of Universals post war studio contract system.
He made countless good films.
Funny, talented and good looking  he never took himself too seriously
and enriched the American film for many decades. Like Hudson he had
his problems finding more serious roles after the 'classic' Hollywood
genres faded away in the late 1960's. But like Hudson (in the fantastic SECONDS, 1966)
he showed he could carry even a dark sinister drama (THE BOSTON STRANGLER, 1968).
And he gave us a fine daughter too :)

Some of his best films:

His autobiography is highly recommended.

Will miss you terribly Tony Curtis!

Couple of rare stills from my archive, some other greats from
the film biz are pictured. 'guess you all recognize them :)

Off-Topic Discussion / Vonetta McGee 1940 - 2010
« on: July 15, 2010, 02:22:35 AM »
She died July 9th, the day after my birthday :(

The leading actress of my favorite non-Leone SW IL GRANDE SILENZIO was born
in San Francisco and died in Berkeley last friday.
She had some good parts during the blaxplotation years (BLACULA,
SHAFT IN AFRIKA) but also co-starred in THE EIGER SANCTION (Clint)
and did a lot of TV work (STARSKY & HUTCH, MAGNUM P.I. ..)

a nice 1972 TV appearance:

Back in 1980 I feel in love with Black Beauty in the snow. From my archive:

Other Films / Peckinpah's The Deadly Companions (1961)
« on: March 03, 2010, 02:24:01 PM »
I just produced the supplements for Koch - Media's fine German DVD - release
of Peckinpah's debut film. It will be the first worldwide with DVD extras:

- featurette PASSION & POETRY - THE EARLY SAM (28 min. Engl. w. optional German subs)
- Galleries with some 130 posters, LC's & stills
- Audio-Commentary (German)
- Booklet (German)

Of course it's the new wonderful 1:2,35 widescreen print that was done a couple
of years ago. Really fantastic.

Other Films / Posse from Hell (1961)
« on: February 13, 2010, 03:31:14 PM »
Just saw that one for the first time.  Anybody seen it?

Very interesting Audie Murphy Universal film from 1961. Really dark and violent,
quite unusual for a Hollywood western. Already goes in the SW direction...
Interesting John Saxon support and Lee van Cleef is in it too. Recommended.

Duck, You Sucker / GIU LA TESTA memorabilia thread
« on: October 24, 2009, 02:37:27 PM »
I'm going to post my items on GIU LA TESTA here, hope you enjoy the stuff.

I'll start with the USA. Here's the insert, the 22x28 half sheet & the 11x14 LC-set.

From England here's the quad poster and the Front of house set:

The French 120x160cm poster, two rare door panels and 16 LC's. Two cards are missing (set of 18).
Does anybody know, which two cards are missing? I'd appreciate any kind of help here..

Off-Topic Discussion / Polanski in jail / shame on Switzerland
« on: September 27, 2009, 06:46:54 AM »
Over the last decades he spent a lot of time in Switzerland.
Just when the Film Festival in Z├╝rich invited him (lifetime achievement award),
the swiss G-Men busted him right away!

I guess the Swiss never really cared what other countries thought of them
(sometimes a good position), but this is a joke. A bad one for Polanski.

Once Upon A Time In The West / The name of the old station clerk ?
« on: July 15, 2009, 02:09:33 PM »

At the beginning of the film.

Can someone help me out please?
And he was also the old soldier in the restored GBU night sequence, right?

Hello friends and Peckinpah aficionados,
while the work on the film & featurettes for the 2 Disc Special Edition DVD for PASSION & POETRY
comes near to an end,
I uploaded the featurette MAPACHE TERRITORY on as kind of an apetizer for the fans.
It is a 13 minute film on my stay in Mexico and the WILD BUNCH location, Mapache's Hacienda.
You'll find the featurette in two parts (8 + 5 minutes), just search  PASSION   POETRY  MAPACHE

Off-Topic Discussion / Peckinpah's CROSS OF IRON plus documentary
« on: November 20, 2007, 06:37:07 PM »
I guess it's about time I too start a topic here.

CROSS OF IRON will be in my head for some time the next months - I just started a documentary about the film.
So much for the breaking news.

I celebrate the beginning of this new film in honor to Sam now with some Yugoslawian Wodka and hope this topic
will turn out as a good one. Will be back soon, 'can't write now - 'busy drinking...
