1516  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:leone breaks a classic western rule... on: January 22, 2003, 11:47:36 AM
A few years ago the Autry Western Museum in L.A. showed Once/West and with Christopher Frayling there giving a talk about it.  Once/West is shown widescreen on TCM without commercials about once a year (last time in November), along with the other Spaghettis.  It is also widescreen on the old Videodisc format, a friend recorded it for me from that.  Luckily, I was able to see all these first run in the real theaters, including Once West original and 1985 restored, and intact Once/America, also 1985.  I have to admit, theater surrounding is still the best.

Yep, I spaced, Sabata is definitely Spaghetti, directed by Gianfranco Parolini (Frank Kramer) same with Adios Sabata (Indio Black).  And sorry about mis-spelling Valance, I spell much better than I type.

Hey guys, please edit your profiles so you're not described as llamas.  On the other hand, if you really are llamas, how do you click the mouse???

Remember, it translates better to the good, the brutal, and the bad

Yeah, Cal, I hope the gang appreciates how you saved the board from the scum that had been posting at the old URL after Mike lost interest.  Not only that, it loads up tons faster (and I've got a 33.6K modem).  Thanks again.

When ABC broadcast GBU (first in 1977, shows what staying power it had, to take that long to reach TV), it deleted the scene at the gun shop which had the targets as Indians - which of course would've been a natural in those days.  It's not appropriate to assign standards of today to periods in the past, just move forward.  on the other hand, ABC also made the fake beginning for FOD to try to give a moral justification to "Joe's" actions.
1522  General Information / General Discussion / Re:How old was leone when he died, on: December 27, 2002, 05:09:49 PM
Frayling (Something to do with Death) lists Leone as being born in 1929 and dying in 1989.  Definitely get this book and "Once Upon a Time" by Cumbow.

I think there was a mean dog out back.....
1524  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:leone breaks a classic western rule... on: December 27, 2002, 04:59:29 PM
When this film was first shown in USA (Arizona) in 1969, the print didn't show Harmonica getting wounded, only referenced with newly-escaped Cheyenne seeing the bullet hole at Stander's saloon.
1525  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:Trilogy? on: December 27, 2002, 04:56:07 PM
OK, if it's a trilogy, then I agree it absolutely has to be GBU, then FDM, then FOD, just from the dates in the films (civil war, newspaper, headstones).  But agree that $100,000 was a ton of money, so I strongly doubt that Blondie would've ever needed to work again, and become a bounty killer in FDM.  Even if he had my luck at blackjack (0 for 23 hands last time I played, my best total was two 17s, with which I pushed, never got 18, 19, 20, or 21, even after hitting, even lost double down to dealer's six showing).
1526  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:why does Blondie keep tuco alive? on: December 27, 2002, 04:48:33 PM
Angel Eyes doesn't tell Blondie the name of the cemetary or its location, he only tells Blondie that he has gotten that information from Tuco.  Remember, under the bridge, Tuco shares the location from Blondie.  In one of the deleted scenes, after leaving Brother Ramirez', Tuco remarks that the cemetary is in Texas, no more.
1527  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: Tommie Connor on: December 27, 2002, 04:45:09 PM
Personally, I think that it's just part of the mystique that Leone/Morricone decided to write a new song for the prison camp scene rather than use a "real" historical song, which really would've been easier.  I really think Leone was trying to get an anti-war message across, this was only 20 years after WW2.
1528  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:Cusser on: December 24, 2002, 08:54:00 AM
Chas, I remember on the old Leone noard that someone actually researched this at the New York City library, to make sure it was the same Tommie Conner (it might be spelled Connor).  But evertime I hear that song (I play oldies radio at work, and it's on at least once a day this time of year) I just shake my head in amazement.
1529  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Final Duel Scene on: December 23, 2002, 02:47:28 PM
In final scene of GBU, similar as Wallach average height and Eastwood and Van Cleef at least 6 ft. 2 inch.

Since it's Christmas season, just wanted the newbies here (Cal - why am I still a "newbie"?) to know that Tommie Conner, who wrote the lyrics for "Story of a Soldier" is best known for the Christmas classic "I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus", unbelievable.  "Story of a Soldier" was apparently his last published work.
