Part of the magic was the fact that the SW's broke the conventions of Hollywood formulaic westerns, without the multitude progression of mind numbing shlock, the effect would not be the same.

What ever happened to this film, is it available on DVD? I never see it listed, at least in the few spots I've looked. What do you guys know about it?

I remember reading a book by, I think it was Joe Miland?, I think there were more than one, anyway they were extentions of the "Man With No Name" stories. The one I read had Tuco and Blondie on another adventure that I think was in Mexico, it was not bad and it was entertaining. Does anyone know if I remebered the author's name right and how many of these were written and their titles?

I'd like to read the whole interview to get a feel for the context in which it was said.

Don't know of any on the net but some of the DVD's have special features that have the trailers to some of the Leone films.

Hi Caius,
In small towns in Montana there is a relatively big turn out for films, take Libby in Montana (pop about 4000), its the county seat of a basically three town county that is roughly 100 miles by 80 miles, each town does have a small theater Libby's can seat maybe 100, Troy's (pop about 1000) can seat 60, and I never been to Eureak's theater, the towns population is maybe 2000. There are other hamlets strung out along the back country roads, Rexford, Sylvanite, Yaak, Happy's Inn, Pipe Creek, Upper Ford, Bull Lake, etc, that are clustered around either a saloon/bar/gas staion, a general store or a combination of all.
The new movie is the social event of the week especially for the kids and teenagers, adults can go to the bars to get entertained by the local characters.  Wink

Hi Caius,

Most of the info on cartridges I found just searching the net, I'm not any expert.

I actually got interested in the guns from Leone's films, I grew up in New York City and did not really have much access to firearms at all, however a high school friend of mine parents owned an army surplus store and they happened to be civil war memorabilia collectors and they had a collection of various US and Confederate rifles, most is mint condition. Their crown jewel piece was a 1867 gatling gun, it was neat cranking the handel, it had a cartridge magazine that top loaded rather than the usually seen belt feed.

In college in the Adirondacks I bought a Remington New Model Army cap and ball (like Angel Eyes's). When I moved out west to Montana 1970's, guns were part of the everyday culture almost like toys. Think about it, you are 50 to 60 miles from the nearest neighbors or town. For recreation you don't have a television or a cinema or a few friends that you can get together with to play football or roundball, so you learn how to shoot varmints from long distances, you save your brass and learn how to custom re-load on a loading bench (it is very very inexpensive, you buy gunpowder by the pound, the bullets by the box and the primers by the can, you can easily load a hundred rounds in a day), You hunt deer, antelope, and elk for food, etc., etc. its a part of life still. We used to target practice just for fun and entertainment with revolvers shooting cans and bottles. By the way a good fast way to learn how to shoot and aim from the hip and actally hit somethingis to tape a lazer pointer to the barrel of the pistol, after a while it becomes instinctive.  Wink

I have a good buddy who grew up on a cattle ranch and this is pretty much his life, though now they have dish tv, and herd cattle with 4 wheelers, lol. But shooting sports are still a big thing out there. A lot of this culture rubs off on you when you are immersed in it.

Just caught "the Outlaw Josey Wales" the other vday on TV, after his farm gets torched he starts to practice his marksmanship with a cartridge converted Colt. It gives a good close up of it.

Yes that is the scene, it bogs down there for me somewhat.  Smiley

Chasman, you're right, I forgot about that line of Tuco's, I was just going from memory.

Oh yea, Blondie is taking advantage of Tuco no doubt, but at that point he doesn't know that Angel Eyes knows Tuco and also knows about the cash box.
12839  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:This has always confused me... on: January 16, 2003, 03:42:45 PM
Carson's name is on the list because Maria told Angel Eyes that that was the name the man with the stolen cash box was going under.

Wallace is calling out the name because of the snuff box found on Tuco from the search of the prisoners.

Blondie tells Tuco to say he's Bill Carson because he has some idea that Angel Eyes is after him.
