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.....
1548  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.

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).

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.

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.
1552  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.
1553  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.
1555  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.
1556  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).
1557  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:Your favourite character in the film? on: December 14, 2002, 09:45:56 AM
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.
1558  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Re:Other favorites on: December 04, 2002, 11:34:50 AM
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.
1559  General Information / Trivia Games / Re:Trivia Question on: November 27, 2002, 06:34:08 PM
I remember the same rocks, long shot from the same site, in FDM and GBU.

But he who double-crosses Tuco and leaves him alive - he knows nothing about Tuco, nothing !!!
