1  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: WHEN DOES ANGEL EYES GET CALLED SENTENZA on: July 16, 2017, 02:31:34 PM
I had copies of all of those books when I was a kid and I read them all.
I probably got more enjoyment out of the books that were not novelizations of the 3 Leone films - Bloody for a Dirty Dollar, A Coffin full of Dollars etc, because I wasn't constantly thinking of the films themselves.
Having said that I did find some of the "fleshing out" of certain scenes from the GBU quite interesting. For example it described Sentenza waiting for Blondie (or rather, Whitey) and Tuco to turn up at the cemetery. You don't always think of things like that with the films themselves

If you follow this link, you can see the woman carrying a young / baby at 6mins 54secs.
Right after the close up with the bright sun behind him where Mortimer says "It's all for you, I think you deserve it", the camera goes back to Manco and she is some distance behind him, walking towards him. You see her between the blue of his collar (on his right side) and the large cactus.

Thanks for posting this - I've never noticed it.
Probably because the most I ever watched this film was back in the old days on vhs when it was probably not visible!  Cheesy Grin

In the US cut does Indio empty 4 bullets into the warden after shooting him thru the peephole?
I have the old MGM laser disc but my machine crapped out so I can not check.

Yes, that line is particularly cocky and seems to anger the hunchback "10 minutes? You'll be smoking in hell!"

I believe the boing sound is a Jew's Harp, which is used on the main title.

I love that whole scene but something that I always used to notice is how the hat that is supposed to be Manco's, being shot up in the air, is totally different!

I love the way that Le Bon can tell that the photo above the books is from the final shot of butch cassidy and the sundance kid - what an observation.

I have to say though, out of all the inhabitants of the mantelpiece - that mug is sheer tat!  Cheesy

Amazing. It's amazing what just a few newly discovered frames can do to a man.....!!!!!!!
Why the hell are we all so obsessed with this film?
Don't even try to answer that one!

Thanks for the cut.

What is this "Stanton cut"?

You mean Clint on horseback?
Nice still. But you will find dozens of stills you've never seen before. In those years they
took between 5000 & 20.000 stills for a film! I have about 250 photos
of the film and maybe 30-50 of those are in the book, all the others in the book I never saw before Smiley.

Yes, that is the photo that I mean and it was used on The Devil's Dollar Sign. I used to have all of those books.

Cheers

Sorry for the minor point on such a big and impressive project but I notice a still of Clint (on the amazon listing, taken from the book) taken during the scene when he shoots Tuco down at the end of the film. The still is not featured in the film but a drawing of the still was used on the front of one of Joe Millard's books. Interesting cause I feel that I have never actually seen the photograph before but it must've been circulated in order for the artist to have painted it.

Am I talking bollox?

better question -- how could Angel Eyes sneak up on Blondie & Tuco in a huge open field where there are nothing but graves as far as the eye can see?

you can't take this stuff too realistically. It's a fairy tale for grownups  Wink

Interestingly, and I know the book was written after the film was made, but when I read the Joe Millard GBU book as a kid he described how Sentenza actually arrived at Sad Hill before the other two and had to wait for them.

Nice job, Jordan.

It's so great to still be able to see new/unseen material 50 years later.

Strange how a still of the skeleton shot still hasn't surfaced yet we know that footage exists.

I don't follow?

Ok, so I have now have this version in front of me and it's like going back to the pan and scan days of old?

Sorry to be a pain in the ass but can somebody else confirm that their copy is the same?

Edit; I see that the extra scenes are in proper letterbox format

Just amazing to think how these photos make you feel isn't it. What was that scene all about? Presumably a bit of "padding" whilst on the way to Sadhill cemetary.
Sends a shiver down your spine though doesn't......!

Then you can sent the discs back, cause they have to sell you exactly the item which is shown and described on the page. And they have to pay the shipping costs for the return.

If it is a marketplace item you can also ask the seller before ordering, to make sure you get what you want.

I bought a CD lately, it was the same album, but not the remastered version I wanted. I got my money back, and in that case they let me even keep the CD, cause the seller was not interested to refund the reshipment.

It was sent back

?

It is still in print, and easily to purchase on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Good-Bad-Ugly-DVD/dp/B00004RCL6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1451751451&sr=8-1&keywords=good+bad+ugly

New and used and enough of it.

I understand your response Stanton but believe it or not, that is what I have tried to buy 3 times and each time the seller has sent me a different version to the actual listing.
I guess I could try Ebay and message the seller first to check that I will be receiving the version listed.

I realise you must think I am mad but this has honestly been my experience
