The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / 40 years ago today 12-29-67!
« on: December 29, 2007, 09:35:37 AM »
According to Internet Movie Data Base (, 40 years ago today December 29, 1967
"The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" premiered in the USA.

Remember the discussion about the 40th anniversary of
 "Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo"  (BBC)

Well happy anniversary to the English translation of BBC
and premier of GBU to the American audience!


Here are two clips of the final shootout. The first one is in Italian. Not sure if this is the original 1966 BBC version, (were there several dubs??) but notice  in this BBC version the Morricone  musical score is slowed down especially at the extreme end with the fast paced close-ups.

and compare with the GBU which I guess we are more used to, however the faster paced score seems to fit better with the quick multiple close-ups.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Explanation on this British poster?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Another scene dub and something I noticed!
« on: November 16, 2005, 09:00:12 PM »
Hanley what can you tell me via the script about this scene. It's when Blondie and Tuco get captured. Some of this scene is dubbed over. I can't make out what Tuco really says, but it is dubbed  over "How peaceful and quiet Amigo".  When Blondie says "Like a cemetary for instance" his is really saying "How much further is it?" Does the shooting script differ.


Funny thing about this scene, Tuco has a piece of tissue paper stuck to his lip, one reason I can't tell what he is really saying!  Did you guys ever notice this? He has it when he gets off his horse and then blows it off his lip when the bayonets are raised to his head. And also funny is that it is this exact  scene with the tissue paper stuck to his lip that gets chosen to be put on this French poster (face image horizontally reversed)!


The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Seperated at birth!

Just some GBU actors and who I think they look like.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / The Poncho! Holes and color.... pictures.
« on: September 21, 2005, 12:51:04 PM »
There has been a lot of discussion on the boards about the poncho, its holes and  its color. Here are some screen grabs that show several things. First the series of gunshot holes. These were actual holes as seen in AFOD, Eastwood wears the poncho with the holes over his heart. In the next movies he wears it backwards but not flipped (topside/underside) and the holes are seen on the rear right shoulder area. This was also a good way for Eastwood to know exactly how to wear it the same way in each scene.

 The orginal color does appear to be green, and since Eastwood wears the poncho the same way every time, with the sunshine bleaching it out, fading, never washing it, and dirty it turns brown over the next movies. You can  clearly see this in the GBU when the poncho is flipped over his shoulder. The underside still retains its green color.

p.s.  In AFOD the holes are seen before the final shootout with Ramone, when Joe gets paid by Don Miguel.  Eastwood wears the poncho backwords and tries to cover up the holes with the saddle bag slung over this shoulder. They probably shot this scene after filming the ending shootout. (not a nit-pick!  Just info on the shooting sequence of this movie)

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Kitty scene dubbed
« on: September 15, 2005, 02:30:41 PM »
I asked a question about this scene a long while ago (2-21-03), and asked what was the original  sentence Eastwood said that was dubbed over, I got no answer then. Well if you mute it and watch I think he says

"Five to one makes it easy. That's a perfect number large one." (check this out muted and see if I'm right)

 However as you know  it is dubbed over "Every gun makes it's own tune, and it's perfect timing large one" (according to the subtitles).

So why was this dubbed over?  I think it was done because Blondie assumed Tuco just killed one of  Angel Eyes' gang, now making 5, but since the movie was edited, we never saw that "in the woods" cut scene where he meets the 6, and states 1,2 3 4...6 a perfect number. So his above statement about 5  would make no sense  to the viewer without seeing that  edited out woods scene, and thus the dubbed voice over. (It would also have  sounded repetitive and inconsistant about the 6 then 5 being a perfect number.) And besides how would he have known that Tuco killed one of the gang? In fact Tuco just killed the man with one arm. Also still assuming Tuco killed a gang member and then after Blondie kills Lorenzo Robeldo in the street, he would have met Tuco and said there were 4 not 5. But as it is shown he says " He's not alone theres five of them" so this would be a missmatch in the numbers. Maybe another script edit in there somewhere.

What do you think? Any other thoughts?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Blondie/Tuco like brothers
« on: July 26, 2005, 04:42:24 PM »
After all they put each other through, I think this scene shows the bond between Blondie and Tuco, almost as if Blondie thinks of Tuco as a brother of some sort! The offering of the cigar, the slight look they give each other, and the classic Tuco cigar chomping grin set to Morricone's musical score...a great scene!

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Tuco's ever changing gun barrel!
« on: July 25, 2005, 06:18:19 PM »
He pieces together one with an octagonal barrel, gets Blondie with it,  it then goes to round when he tries to shoot off the legs of the chair, back to octagonal (hey Beebs there is that wine bottle with the straw outer cover!), back to  round and ends with octagonal. Obviously there were 2 guns  used and each had his trademark leather lanyard attached to the butt. I know the gun issue has been talked about many times before but I don't know if this has been brought up?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / French trailer download
« on: July 22, 2005, 08:00:34 PM »
Here it the entire GBU french trailer, note it is 36MB in size so a high speed (dsl/cable) would be best
click link and go to bottom of page, click "free box" another window will open, scroll to bottom, now a download ticket timer will start wait till hit hits zero and up will pop a "download: gbufrenchtrailer.mpg" click on this to open/ play or save to your drive. Sometimes the site is busy (too many user..try again later)

Several thing of interest I have noted, but one is the scene with Tuco at the cemetery, while running, not all that frantic as in extacy he stops and looks at something (directly at camera) and looked suprised/stunned, not elated like he found the grave but like he see's someone? What do you make of this scene?
