The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:Blondie and his gun

Hey Joe.  The gun Josey pulls from the smokey ruins is a 1861 Navy Colt cap and ball, not a conversion... FYI

Woops, I posted a picture of the wrong gun, duh?  The one above is an Army Colt model and the one below is Josey's Navy Colt model...

Bogie! 8)

I think that it is safe to say that in making FFD Leone had no idea that it would turn into a huge success and therefore, at the time, no other movies were planed.  After the success of FFD I am sure Leone, feeling that he had of something great, jumped at the opportunity to make a sequel.  We know it is  a sequel because everything about Joe is the same.  Same Poncho, same cloths, same horse, same cigar, same silver handled colt .45s, same attitude, and same squint.  Not to mention the fact that in FFDM Manco wears a leather hand brace on his right wrist and does absolutely everything left handed in the movie with one exception,  Shooting!!!  Now the hand brace in my option is worn by Manco as a direct result of Chicos beating in FFD.  There is no reason whatsoever Leone would have added this extra prop if that were not the case.  As far as him being the same character in all three movies lets just say that he (Joe/Manco/Blondy) must age gracefully.   I put the time line between GBU (1862) and FFD(1884 or 85) and FFDM(1885) at around 23 or 24 years.  Now unless Blondy dies after GBU and becomes a Mythical Stranger, an angel of death if you will, or else has a real good plastic surgeon.  There is no way of hiding 24 years worth of again.

I really do not think that historical continuity was a priority for Leone.  He was more interested in telling a story.  After all the monies generated from FFD and FFDM, he had the budget to do an Epic Western with a grandiose civil war battle scene.  The way to make certain it would be a sure-fire success was to bring back Eastwood and the man with no name pretence.  Money in the bank.  

In my opinion Eastwood is the same character in all three films.

"How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders, Man can't even trust his own pants..." 8)

What movie was it said in? Who said it and to whom?

When you answer it you can post up your own quote from a Leone movie and let somebody else try...

I must admit back when this movie came out I had no idea about it and ended up watching it on my girlfriends couch at the time and really enjoyed it that night but everytime I've watched it since then I think of it as a cheap rip off of alot of great westerns... :-[

Ahhh... You can see the stick or branch, or whatever holding him up as Eastwood turns around to tip his hat to him...
