It may include such things, but not usually for consumption on the premises. You're supposed to buy it and haul it away with you. A tavern allows consumption on site.

I hate to keep harping on the same issues all the time. I don't want to come off as a scold. But titoli is right: Eastwood and company didn't even loop their English dialog until the fall of '67. GBU proper didn't hit US theaters until 1968.

June 1968 for me in Arizona.  Never saw a trailer or TV commercial for it.  We heard Montenegro version on radio, and knew Eastwood from Rawhide.  We didn't know Eli Wallach was in it, knew him from Magnificent Seven.  When GBU titles started, not only was that real different, but my brothers and my friend and I couldn't figure out why almost all the names were Italian.  I was 15, but into film music from films such as Magnificent Seven and Time Machine, so was blown away like 2.25 hours later with Ecstasy of Gold through the end.

Fistful and FDM didn't hit Arizona until months or year later, as a double feature.

Debbie Reynolds was a great talent, impeccable in Singin' in the Rain, and she held How the west was Won together.

And no one can ever top her encore !!!

I am however regretting not having gone to see The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (which I've heard mixed reviews about, but at least wouldn't induce me to suicide) or even Australia again.

Mrs. Cusser just got NetFlix, we watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas last night.  I thought it was quite good, and really showed differing beliefs of ordinary Germans during the war (as did The Book Thief, also very good).

Leone invented the Kwik-E-Mart?

Very good link, thanks.

I'd think the toughest part would be finding actors who knew how to ride or horse or handle a gun so it looks real.  In the old days of the studio system, many young actors learned this stuff, learned to dance, etc.

Eli Wallach had known how to ride a horse before Magnificent Seven, but was not familiar with guns, he talked about that on the DVD extra feature.  In the scene near the beginning where he shoots the guy coming at him with a machete, Eli has to look down at his holster to get the gun holstered, something an experienced thug would have mastered long ago.

I saw this in the theater when it came out, OK.  The Nazis were true thugs and criminals.

12. Why is there an old railroad track buried at Sweetwater (as discovered by Cheyenne)?

I think he finds a marking stake, put down by McBain.

We saw "Allied" yesterday, liked it.

I also liked Hacksaw Ridge, saw it last night.  Battle scenes were graphic, likely realistic, like in Saving Private Ryan.

Two things did bother me a little:
1.  Nurse/wife was just too hot for him !!!

2.  Who built that rope ladder thing, and why didn't the Japanese just cut that/destroy that so the Americans could not access the cliff/ridge in that way?

Watch Saturday on Turner Classic and see where he drops it....
75  General Information / Sergio Leone News / Re: Eastwood puts on the original poncho again! on: November 04, 2016, 08:00:56 AM
I also saw the original poncho, at the Once Upon a Time in Italy exhibit at the Autry museum.  Also confirm greenish/brown and sewed up bulletholes.

At that exhibit, the entire outfit was on display, not just the poncho.  Clint was smart enough to save all that stuff.  And he told Van Cleef and Wallach to take their stuff back to hotel with them each night for safekeeping, that Italians did not have multiples.
