Wish my German was better 
German language book "Wie aus Wildnis Gesellschaft wird: Kulturelle Selbstverständigung und populäre Kultur am Beispiel von John Fords Film "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance""

Tuco has a personalized pistol made from parts of various weapons.  So it might have a unique sound.
Maybe the gun he owned when Blondie first knew him was the same?

Tuco's "personalized" pistol was taken from him when he and Blondie were taken prisoners by the Union Army after leaving Mission San Antonio.

Extremely doubtful he could've "found" that pistol again after cutting his ties with Sgt. Wallace !

With TV it's different. The broadcaster has no control on who is viewing the material so consideration needs to be given to what time of day the item is being shown, whether the the channel is open to the public or private and the broadcaster's own standards.

Hmmmm - "great dad" Lucas McCain killed about 160 guys in 5 seasons of Rifleman !!!  Poor Mark had to be warped to accept this !

A video by Firecracker that busts this myth with several pre-1964 examples of shooter and shootee in the same frame:

I think Eastwood was talking about Rawhide guidelines.

Watched the YouTube video, and by the way, the clip from Man Who Shot Liberty Valance shows apparent shooter Jimmy Stewart shooting Lee Marvin, not real shooter Wayne.

I think the Angel Eyes/"Fort" scene is very important, especially for its anti-war  elements.  And same for scene leaving the mission, showing dead soldiers along the trail, and detailing how long a journey it would be.

Scene where Tuco learns the mission is not too far is short, no need to excise.

"The Girl Who Had Everything"  1953, starring Elizabeth Taylor.  Rate 3, Mrs. Cusser wanted to watch on TCM.  Rich girl gets enamored with an older thug.  At least it was only 75 minutes long.  Lots of smoking in pretty much every scene, lots of drinking too.

None are intended to be 100% historically accurate.

As far as I remember GBU contains also some anachronistical stuff.

Yeah, like dynamite not invented until after the Civil War.

Blondie (he looks in his 30s in 1862), would have been too old to be Joe or Manco Fistfull Of Dollars has to fit between 1895-1898 (fully automatic machine guns and US soldiers still in kersey blue uniforms), while For A Few Dollars More is roughly around 1905 (railroads in both El Paso and Tucumcari). So Joe and Manco could theoretically be the same guy.

I say Joe-Manco is Blondie's Uncle who taught him everything he knows.  Azn

Fistfull Of Dollars: there are dates on markers in the cemetery, don't remember what they were.

For A Few Dollars More: earlier than 1905, there's a date on the newspaper where Mortimer sees photo of "Manco", earlier than the dates on the "Fistful" cemetery markers.

11  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Re: Arnon Milchan: Super Hollywood Producer on: February 15, 2018, 09:01:41 AM
It was interesting that Di Caprio & Inarrito praised Milchan for championing & sticking by The Revenant - by all accounts  a tricky and troubled production and a project that seemingly had been around Hollywood for years

Wasn't this film essentially a re-make of "Man in the Wilderness" ?

Last night, with Mrs. Cusser out at a horse event, I watched again "Saboteur", hadn't seen it in at least two decades, and that was at the theater.  Since this was released in 1942, and I know tons more WW2 history, wanted to see how the war was addressed.  I enjoyed this a lot, a common storyline (like "All Through the Night") where an innocent guy really has to find the perpetrator to clear himself.  The Statue of Liberty scene is a classic, as is the bickering Cummings and Lane commented on by observers as "they must be so much in love" (similar to scene in "39 Steps).

The Nazi sympathizers were called "The Firm" and had no accents, unlike the commonly used sinister-appearing Conrad Veidt.

If Wagner really murdered her, how on earth would they be able to prove it?

No way to prove in this instance without an actual eyewitness.  If she fell off and Wagner didn't try to save her, that's not prosecutable according to a news report I saw.  No, I do NOT believe she would've climbed alone into the dinghy by herself, especially at night and in choppy sea and in PJs - and she didn't know how to start the dinghy engine either according to the boat captain.

I have no theories...

I think O.J. did it.

But most likely from the accounts is that she fell/was pushed overboard during a drunken fight with Wagner, who then untied the dinghy, maybe thinking she could grab onto that, or to support a flimsy "alibi".  On the other hand, Wagner is now 87, what more to gain from prosecuting???

"On February 1, 2018, Wagner was named a "person of interest" in the death of Natalie Wood by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department."   The term "suspect" is not really used these days, the new term is "person of interest", as in this instance.
