Off-Topic Discussion / Umberto D (1952)

A classic by the great Italian director Vittorio De Sica. Not only is it a powerful tear-jerker, but it has the greatest performance ever given by an animal: the title character's dog. Just amazing!

The answer is actually five. Richard Bright played Holly in "Pat Garret & Billy the Kid", and Chicken Joe in OUATIA. His most famous role was Michael Corleone's trigger man Al Neri in the Godfather films.

Laurence Harvey was in the film Room at the Top (1959) with Simone Signoret. His most famous role was the brainwashed assassin in The Manchurian Candidate (1962) starring Frank Sinatra directed by the great John Frankenheimer, a classic.

Doesn't anybody watch these movies? He loads one, hears the "spurs", then the men marching and quickly loads three more. Not a trick question.

Three of the Magnificent Seven died in a short span. Coburn in November. Brad Dexter in December. And Horst Buchholz died last March. All that remain of the Seven are Charles Bronson and Robert Vaughn.

Oh please! Don't kid yourself. Watch the scene again. Angel Eyes is staring at Blondie in most of his closeups and he's looking to his left when he draws his gun. He knows Blondie is the faster draw because of the way he killed the man who snuck up on him while he was "asleep." And also the way Blondie handled his gun when Angel Eyes returned it to him at the prison camp. So he's got to kill him first or else he's dead.

Other Films / Ride the High Country (1962)

Has there ever been an actor other than Randolph Scott whose best film was his last?  Peckinpah's second film ranks with his best. Beautiful photography (Lucian Ballard) and muscical score (George Bassman) along with a terrific and touching finale.

There's no doubt these actors ruled their decades.

1930s: Clark Gable/Greta Garbo
1940s: Bogart/Ingrid Bergman
1950s: Brando/Elizabeth Taylor
1960s: Paul Newman/Audrey Hepburn
1970s: Jack Nicholson/Faye Dunaway
1980s: Harrison Ford/Meryl Streep
1990s: Anthony Hopkins/Susan Sarandon

20th Century: John Wayne,Cary Grant/Bette Davis,Katharine Hepburn

In between:(1) the music playing after Angel Eyes says, "Even a filthy beggar like that has a protecting angel." (2)Angel Eyes saying, "A golden haired angel watches over him."

It goes without saying FAFDM and OUATIA are superior films artistically, but the kid in me still prefers A Fistful of Dollars. "Joe" is the catalyst of the entire plot because he is alone and doesn't share in the main heroics with anyone, although he does have help from Silvanito and Piripero the undertaker. The Rojos are a truly evil adversary and the final confrontation is the most personal between "the man with no name" and the villain(s) in the dollars trilogy.
