Also remember the snuff box had Bill Carsons name in it , and that Angel Eyes and his men were looting the prisoners possessions.

Hi kermit,
I also paid a bit of attention to the rifle at the end too, It was not the Henry repeating rifle with the side scope that he used before, That gun was lost long ago after their capture by the Union cavalry . This time he really used an appropriate gun for the long distance shot. I think it is a single shot Sharps Buffalo Rifle it looks to me that Leone got it right once again.  It also means that Angle Eyes was packing some heavy artillery, lol.

You got it!
They all wear their boots Texican or Texas Style (might have something to do with snakes if any board members are from Texas they may clue us in , lol) in the beginning, and only Lee Van Cleef does so at the end.

Ok viewed the AMC GBU last night and have confirmed more sightings of Colt conversions.

Tuco in gunshop, good view of cylinder of converted Colt when he asks gunshop owner "How much?"

Blondie cleans cylinder with brush pushes it all the way through which could not be done with a cap and ball cylinder.

Tuco loads converted colt in sequence at bridge battle, you see him put in cartridges then close the loading gate.

In corrida shootout during the fast cuts tuco's colt shows loading gate.  Angel Eyes's Remington I think I saw its loading gate but I'll have to review it to confirm.

The only interesting fact is that all the guns retained their ramers (the lever activated bar that seated the lead balls into the cylinders) these are possibly purposely left in place to be able to switch back to cap and ball if out of supply of cartidges. One could then simply switch out cylinders.

They did a great job, the other thing that you may look for with the trains is the wide gauge track, I think its 6 feet as opposed to 4 feet 8 inches the standard gauge for the US now, the one caveat is that in Texas and in other parts of the US at that time there was actually some 6 foot gauge railroads.

If you notice on OUTITW Morton's passager car/office has 4 or possibly 6 wheel trucks I believe that it may be an American made Pullman, any train buff out there that can confirm?

AMC did a great job on intergrating the missing scenes into GBU, Eli sounds a bit his age and so does Clint but only if you are really listening for it and the impressionest that did Lee sounds great.
12595  General Information / Trivia Games / GBU Trivia on: May 11, 2003, 08:54:22 AM
Ok which item of clothing do Eli, Clint, and Lee, wear in the same style at the beginning of GBU but only one of them at the end?

Bonus, name the style?
12596  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Magnificent Rogues on: May 09, 2003, 07:04:53 PM
We have voted favorite villians but now lets come up with a list of  favorite Magnificent Rogues, villians that kind of grow on you that you end up liking, movies and TV.

I'll start:
Eli Wallace as Tuco in GBU of course.
Wallace Beary as Long John Silver in Treasure Island.
Dustin Hoffman as Ratzo Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy.
John Hurt as Caligula in I Claudius.

I'll post more when I think of them.

Angel Eyes
12598  Other/Miscellaneous / Ennio Morricone / Re:Morricone on: May 09, 2003, 06:55:05 PM
I like Angelo Badalamenti and his work with David Lynch.

I agree, Das Boot is the submarine movie above all others.

I saw it in cinerama on Times Square, it was on a huge screen and I was in the front of the balcony, you could barely discern the three projections. It could almost be equated with Imax.

I haven't seen it in ages and only remember the Ohio river flatboat sequence, and the train sequence. I sure don't recall Eli, Lee, and Henry, that would have been a good trivia question.
