Could be the very first film depicting that wonderful Western All'Italiana combination "Gringo/Latino/Machine Gun", which
made for great scenes in MERCENARIO, QUIEN SABE?, GIU LA TESTA ...
Good film. Mitchum in Mexico is great, also highly recommended: THE WONDERFUL COUNTRY !

4  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Re: Klaus Kinski on german lobby card on: January 29, 2018, 11:07:12 AM
I doubt that is a deleted scene... they took a lot of promo stills with Kinski (some with Eastwood), I have about six or seven from that session...

Sorry, the days are over I had the time to create "extended versions". Although SORCERER I might do all over again, this time in HD...

SCRIPT: I'm sure 90% that Sam did not write scripts before 1955 (and then only two-three reelers). RIDERS OF VENGEANCE is such
a mediocre title, it could be a 30s Monogram western, or anything for that matter. Probably a working title or something like that.
But still very interesting. What puzzles me is that my colleagues in the US never came across it anywhere (or at least did not
mention it in any of the books).
6  Films of Sergio Leone / A Fistful of Dollars / Re: Mike's FOD memorabilia on: January 27, 2018, 02:00:26 PM
Yes, a pity.
I don't have the time really these days, other threads are also concerned...

But all these items (and many more) will be included on the animated picture galleries I just
produced for the upcoming US Blu-ray release....

About time! I'm assuming the transfer will be the same? I've been enjoying my UK release for years now.

By the way, over at the Peckinpah forums, my theory is that "Riders of Vengeance" is "The Raiders" from 1952. Also "The Osterman Weekend" was just released on BD in Japan and is apparently not stellar but much better than the Anchor Bay BD debacle.

I feel slightly guilty about OSTERMAN. I never liked it much and maybe watched the DVD once in 15 years. I have a nice 35mm print which I screened twice - that is about enough Smiley. Thanks for the note, I'll get that one... (what gives you the idea it is THE RAIDERS? I have no time to research right know, but I can't remember Sam already wrote feature scripts on spec back in 1952. I'd say he started later. Interesting.)

I was never into "teasing", 'consider it a waste of time Smiley.

Let's see... (I don't have THAT much to offer anyway, there's isn't
much to produce about SILENZIO, not much available, and my audio-commentary
is in German anyway.)

But I finished supplements for the upcoming Kino Lorber FISTFUL blu-ray,
and CROSS OF IRON will finally be released in the USA as well with
my 2 hours of supplements this year...

Maybe the upcoming US blu-ray will include some of the supplements I produced for the German release...

Saved some money.

And neither QUIEN SABE? for that matter.
Damiani would be angry with me.

Colizzi was a protege of Leone. He used a lot of Sergio's actors (like... the leads besides Hill-Spencer, for instance Smiley ...)
14  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: Villa Rides (1968) on: January 12, 2018, 05:21:54 AM
A good joke, 'gave me a most welcome laugh...

Absolutely. I understand why many hold up FAFDM as their favorite, it is a perfect western - if one is going for that. GBU is much more mature and artistic and I can't find more or less "comedy" elements in it than in any other Leone. He was a very humorous man and it shows in his films. Even GIU LA TESTA, who has the saddest scenes of any of Leone's westerns, has some funny moments to relief the audience. Tuco is my favorite performance in any of Leone's films, which are full of great performances from GBU on...
