47  General Information / Sergio Leone News / Re: Eastwood puts on the original poncho again! on: April 24, 2017, 07:50:41 AM
It is the same poncho in all three movies

There is a thread http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=2360.0 that shows some stills from For a Few Dollars More and GBU where someone forgot that the sewn-up bullet holes from Fistful were in view; typically, the poncho was rotated for a scene so they wouldn't be visible, but sometimes someone forgot.  Even in Fistful - since shot out of sequence like most films - has a few instances of this.

Look in this photo: sewn up bullet holes are visible.

But in westerns, so far as I can remember, he always shoots at the person and never at the horse.

In The Magnificent Seven, after killing a bandit riding away from long distance, after Horst Bucholz says that was the best shot he'd ever seen, James Coburn says it was the worst shot - that he was actually aiming at the bandit's horse.  So Coburn was smart enough to aim for the horse.

This doesn't make it on the cable networks often. 

But apparently there is a re-make due out soon, with Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning.

Zookeeper's Wife - I enjoyed it.

Marisa Solinas had a nice extended scene without knickers.

I DVR'd "Blindman" last night, now on Encore Western channel, starring Tony Anthony and Ringo Starr.  Have never heard of it.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blindman

But if you do, make sure we still have access to the originals. I can forgive anything as long as we are left with choices.

Yeah, I want regular French Fries, not the so-called trendy stuff with paprika and spices.  And I want regular iced tea, not my only choice being mango tea or something !!!
55  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: The best movie ever made... on: February 25, 2017, 07:41:49 AM
And Maureen McBain (Simonetta Santaniello) and Timmy McBain (Enzo Santaniello) were real-life sister and brother !!!

And more trivia: Simonetta Santaniello is best known for being Michael's Italian wife in Godfather; she got blown up in the car explosion.
56  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: Original intermission on: February 15, 2017, 07:12:24 AM
I saw all these in theaters as first run, except Once/America later in 1985 as it was put back into the Leone timing.  That was the only one that had intermission as first run.  But I did see GBU years later and there was an intermission just after Tuco cuts the chains and jumps on the train.

Yesterday, the baby cat jumped up on my mantlepiece and knocked my copy of 'Once Upon a Time in Italy' to the ground; that tore off the covers, made a real mess of it. 

I glued it back the best I could, and contemplated having barbequed cat for dinner....first my GBU mug bit the dust, now this....

I liked that Van Cleef was first face in the film, that he played a harmonica, and never said a single word.

I feel Cooper was way too old for the part, and too old for Grace Kelly.

I didn't like Katy Jurado.

We were told in film class - might be true - that pre-screenings of this film were a flop; then the clock stuff and the music/lyrics beefed up.  I liked the build up of the music where it ends with the train whistle.

Waiting a while, or a day, for the train was likely commonplace back then.  Nowadays folks get peeved when a flight is 10 minutes late.

I'd say that at least 5 of the additional scenes are worthwhile.  Most notable: the Confederate outpost, Tuco getting information that Mission San Antonio was only a few miles away, and he might be able to get help there, leaving the mission, all the dead bodies on the way, Tuco telling Blondie that they have a long way to go, will need to cross enemy lines several times.

When Mortimer says "Maybe next time" after Clint says "What about our partnership?"

That was a rhetorical response, like Harmonica's response in Once/West when Jill asks him if he'll be back some day, and Harmonica responds "some day".
