Not really. It's based on the same events.

True, the remake was head scratchingly RICIDULOUS but beatutifully shot.

I knew this was gonna be like some of the other comedic tone spags that i purchased and regretted, but gave it a shot anyway. I suffered all the way up to the scene where the trained pulled into the station and the gang member had a TELEPHONE as a ear Lips Sealed.  I shut it down after that.

It was a fancy victorian ear trumpet:

Yea think of it with The Wild Wild West in mind, Sabata kind of works if you are familiar with the tongue and cheek West of James West and Artemus Gordon.

Leone, knowing his fame would outlive him, prepared such conundrums for his future fans so they'd have something to discuss on chat boards. He was more than a film director: a visionary, a seer, a guru.

But it’s not a noir Shocked

Actually, noirs get at least a 9/10  Wink

Go Tell the Spartans (1978) a pretty good, early "adviser phase" Vietnam War film, that I'd never saw before, stars Burt Lancaster, 8/10.

If Wagner really murdered her, how on earth would they be able to prove it?

I have no theories, but I can't help but wonder why he would have murdered her with others on board (if he murdered her). If he was going to kill her, why not do it in such a way that he wouldn't be the prime suspect?

Okay, maybe I've been watching too many whodunits.... Grin

From a poster on  TCM weboard:
RJ (Wagner) and Lana Wood have not been on good terms for years. He wrote disparagingly about her in his memoirs as a leach and hanger on to Natalie who was always looking for a handout (she wrote a book about Natalie after her death apparently for money).

If I remember correctly, after Natalie died she raided Natalie's closets and took all of her furs and wardrobe............

The Hanging Tree (1959) - 2/10. All your favorites are here: Gary Cooper as Doc Frail; Maria Schell as Weepy the Wonder Wench; George C. Scott (woefully underused) as Grubb the Faith Healer; Ben Piazza as--who the hell is Ben Piazza?--Rune; Karl Malden as "Frenchy" (WTF?). Coop is one heck of a boomtown doctor. Upon examining a malnourished young girl he prescribes cow's milk. For a woman suffering exposure, sunstroke and (temporary) blindness he suggests recovering quietly in a darkened room. What an amazing physician! Of course, there's the also the Healer, Heal Thyself angle--what an amazing screenplay! Coop does his usual quiet sufferer routine. Meanwhile, back at the boomtown, sluices are being built. Panning for gold--such an exciting topic! Oh yeah, that hanging tree that gets called to our attention in the very first scene? It makes an incredibly unanticipated re-appearance at the end of the film. Who could have seen that coming? Or that Doc would be chastened and thereby learn to re-connect with his feelings? Is this the worst Western ever made? Well, it's in contention. The Montana setting was (according to IMDb) played by Washington state.

I'm so glad that Jessica Rabbitt and others told me to screen these movies before i purchase them.  This is one. I had high hopes for this.  It had some good points.  The cinematography was pretty good.  My problem was the plot itself.  I don't know if it was the acting or the plot, but for some reason i didn't think it was pulled off.  The whole thing felt contrived.

That's why I called it a gateway noir.  Wink It's a noir for Musical Genre fans of Ginger Rogers.  Afro

The Silent Partner (1978) A bank teller Eliot Gould is held up at gun point by a Santa Claus (Christopher Plummer), during the holidays in Toronto. The robbery takes place after a large deposit is made. But he's anticipating the heist because of two things, a discarded withdrawal slip he found earlier with identical capitol "G's" that match a hand drawn sign he spots held by the same Santa Claus, and the fact that the Santa was going to rob the bank right after a large deposit was made by a local business man, but he was foiled in the earlier attempt by a small boy who attracted a lot of attention because wanted to tell Santa his Christmas list.

Because the observant teller knows whats coming he devises a way to steal most of the money for himself while letting Santa get away with a portion.

Its a nice little cat and mouse game once the real thief figures out what happened and wants a cut of the loot. The rest of the cast  Susannah York, Céline Lomez and John Candy. 8/10

BTW, we're planning to start our trip from L.A. and drive to New Orleans or there about (and fly to NYC). Is it a total suicide mission to drive through Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and/or New Mexico in April/May because of the tornados?

If you have an app on your phone and are flexible in routes and time you can probably dodge the bad weather.

Murder, Inc. (1960), starring Stuart Whitman, May Britt, Henry Morgan, Peter Falk, Simon Oakland, and Vincent Gardenia was close to a Noir, it had the Dutch angles and some stylistics in enough shots to get that noir tuning fork vibrating.  Cool Afro
