On the other hand, with each subsequent film he was probably more concerned with them than it might seem at first.

I don't know about that; there were anachronisms in weapons even in GBU. Some of the cannons used in the trench sequences were borrowed from a Spanish museum, and were not from the time of the American Civil War

btw, I was also wondering about the machine gun Ramon used to slaughter the Mexican cavalry unit in FOD: I guess the movie is set  sometime between the 1870's and 1890's: would that machine gun really have existed at that time?

Although I have not even attempted to go back to the leonenut restoration (I can't be bothered with complex internet downloads), I have found something just as intriguing a few nights ago.

Apparently someone put up the full Italian version of the film of youtube! Even though there is no English audio, any OUATITW fan certainly doesn't need it, and all the extra footage is there! It's quite exciting to see additional shots from your favorite movie for the first time.

Here's the link to the first of 18 clips:

For a side note: Much of the extra footage from the first two scenes made its way into the Scorsese restoration and then from that point on there was no more footage added in (even though there's a great deal of them). 

so this Italian version on youtube is longer than the "full" American version of 165 minutes?

I can't understand all the complicated download stuff on that page; it is confusing. If someone has it and is willing to copy it for me, I'd happily pay for it. Please PM me. Thanks

are there scenes here that are not in the full 2:45 American version?

Platonic lover...  Grin Mario Brega is so good in these bearlike henchman characters. Did he ever play anything else?

He was one of the gangsters in Once upon a time in America, although its easy not to recognise him unless you know he's in it.


who did Brega play in OUATIA?
8256  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / The Return of Frank James (1940) on: February 04, 2011, 11:56:23 AM

"The Return of Frank James" (1940) 8/10
 directed by Fritz Lang; this film is a sequel to "Jesse James" (1939, directed by Henry King).

"Jesse James" ended with Jesse's death by the Ford brothers. "The Return of Frank James" features Henry Fonda reprising his role as Frank James, and seeking to avenge Jesse's death.

As in the first movie, Henry Hull is absolutely hilarious as a newspaper editor whose frequent editorials support the James brothers. There is a long courtroom scene that is really funny as well.

This is a terrific movie. In technicolor.

Rio Bravo is my favorite American Western of all-time 10/10 Afro

with a wonderful score by Tiomkin.

and o btw, the film kills High Noon, which I always believed to be very overrated

RE: the criticism of lack of landscapes/scenery:I think one of the purposes is that we should feel the claustrophobia of Chance and his deputies holed up there all paranoid; I think vast landscapes would have taken away from that

I usually hate love aspects of a movie, unless they fit really well into the movie; but I think this one fits very nicely, and Angie Dickinson is really good here. so are Dean and Ricky. The comic relief with Walter Brennan and Pedro Gonzalez-Gonzalez is very good.

"She Wore A Yellow Ribbon" is a very good movie (as far as its place in Ford's Cavalry Trilogy: it is not as good as Fort Apache, but better than Rio Grande).

titoli and Groggy: what's with all the hostility toward Victor McLaglen? I think he was a hilarious and wonderful actor. I love watching him!

Stagecoach is the earliest great Western that I've seen Afro

Jesse James was also released in 1939 (actually a couple of months before Stagecoach -- and in Technicolor!) and I really liked that movie too. I have not seen a good Western that was released before 1939. (I'm only counting sound movies; I haven't seen any silent movies, except The Great Train Robbery)

This is the sort of movie that if it's playing on tv, you can keep the channel on and watch it.

I'd give it a 5.5/10

Morricone's main theme is funny

I think this film is very overrated
8262  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: Wild Bill (1995) on: February 04, 2011, 07:16:49 AM
My 2nd worst Western of all-time (worst is The Quick and the Dead)
8263  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: Wyatt Earp (1994) on: February 04, 2011, 07:14:08 AM
Ok getting "Gunfight at the OK Corral" last week and a short time before that picking up "Tombstone" sort of piqued my interest in "Earp" related films, so while at the local video rental shop the other day I rented Costner's "Wyatt Earp".

So far now I've seen Ford's "My Darling Clementine" (1946), Sturges' "GatOKC" (1957), Sturges' "Hour Of The Gun" (1967) Perry's "Doc" (1971), Cosmatos' "Tombstone" (1993) and Kasdan's "Wyatt Earp".

The only film I'm missing that coverd the events around the OK Corral is I believe Cahn's thinly veiled "Law & Order" (1932). Other films depict Wyatt Earp as a cameo type character (Winchester 73) but I'm just really concerned with these films depicting the famous shootout.

This one was a tad long basically a biopic.....

To be continued.....

There were also two films in the 30's entitled "Frontier Marshal," though I have not seen them and I'm not sure how much they focus on the gunfight at OK corral

Generally, it's hard to definitively "prove" anything about dates: there are some anachronisms with weapons in the Dollars trilogy, and as cigarjoe mentioned above, Tucumcari first became a town in 1901.
 If I had to guess, I don't think Leone was too concerned about dates/timelines. After all, he was making "fairy tales for grownups"  Wink
