1531  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Re:Why the wait? on: December 19, 2002, 12:50:46 PM
Before the film came out, I thought I heard that he wanted de Niro real bad, so he waited for him, too.
1532  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Was Harmonica on the train or not? on: December 14, 2002, 09:53:01 AM
Yeah, I noticed that discrepancy many years ago about the "three men in dusters", but believe that it was clever dialogue winning out over perfect continuity or re-shooting the Cattle Corner scene.  Remember, Al Mulloch killed himself, which would make it tough to meet new salary demands (look how successful Elvis has been since his death).  I think that Harmonica arrived by the train but wisely exited on the opposite side (rail cars all had doors on both sides; oftentimes cars are not turned around, just hooked up to different engine at the opposite end, that's happened on trains I've been on, like from Phoenix to Dallas).  And he didn't seem to have a horse there either, but interesting "train" of thoughts (couldn't resist that).

Of course, I also never realized (when I was younger) that the "kid" in the Magnificent Seven (maybe because he was played by Horst Bucholz) was supposed to be Hispanic, from his looks, but Chris does make references to it.  I guess at that age I naively expected all Hispanics to look like Tuco....I guess we all learn.

Michael Curtiz: Adventures of Robin Hood, Captain Blood, etc.  All had great similarities to the Spaghettis, similar use of humor, main character who appealed to both men and women, great use of musical score (and Academy Award there) by Korngold.

I remember the same rocks, long shot from the same site, in FDM and GBU.
1536  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:Tuco can't take a joke on: November 26, 2002, 12:06:19 PM
But he who double-crosses Tuco and leaves him alive - he knows nothing about Tuco, nothing !!!

I voted for Cheyenne; by the way, I never realized that he was supposed to be Hispanic until I read it in one of the books (can't remember first name, last name Gutierrez or similar).  When I last looked, though, he used a Mexican saddle on his horse.  Lionel Stander did a good job in his bit part.
1538  Films of Sergio Leone / A Fistful of Dollars / Re:Final scene - thoughts! on: November 25, 2002, 11:55:59 AM
Seemed unrealistic to me - what if Ramon got pissed and decided to shoot him in the head - there were other ways to get within shooting range.  I did like the appearance after the smoke cleared.
1539  General Information / Trivia Games / Re:Where's Ponch! (and I don't mean from CHIPS!) on: November 25, 2002, 11:53:05 AM
When I was in Clint's restaurant in Carmel in 1986 (Hog's Breath) there was no poncho on display, really not much of anything.

OK, Cal, I can log on from home now (or you wouldn't be reading this).
1541  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re:Other Favorite Non Spaghetti Westerns on: November 20, 2002, 03:08:09 PM
Man Who Shot Liberty Valnce (van Cleef), Death Rides, Sabata, Red River, Magnificent Seven, Stagecoach 1966, Searchers
1542  General Information / General Discussion / Re:James Coburn Dead at 74 on: November 19, 2002, 05:41:23 PM
Coburn was great in Magnificent Seven.
1543  General Information / Sergio Leone News / TCM showings - hurry on: November 18, 2002, 12:30:52 PM
TCM will have letterbox showings of the four Leone westerns back-to-back beginning Tuesday evening Nov. 19th.  I believe Death Rides a Horse is on the 21st. They call this the "All the great westerns (except Shane) festival".
1544  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / Re:Thoughts on this film on: November 16, 2002, 01:50:43 PM
I did see this in theater, when it first came out, just like all the Spaghettis.  I saw it again 20 years later, and enjoyed it more then.  Juan was apparently supposed to be Eli Wallach, who would've been way better than Steiger.  But interesting tale of the two-bit bandit who unknowingly becomes a hero and a leader.
1545  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In America / Debra on: November 16, 2002, 01:47:35 PM
OK, young Debra was hot, and grew up to be actress Jennifer C., older Debra was not good casting, in my opinion.  Anyway, I think Leone blew it a little here: when older Noodles meets up with her in her dressing room, she looks un-aged.  I would've had her look unaged when Noodles is looking at her but same age as Noodles when she looks at herself in the mirror, to show that in Noodles' mind and memory she didn't age.  Just what I would've done.
