Who the hell is "Wallace"?

Persumably Mario Brega's character, Cpl Wallace?

Looking at the review from Mondo, looks washed out to bejaysus to me... still yellow
2  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: One Upon A Time In The West arch location on Google Earth on: July 26, 2017, 04:11:15 PM
The pictures I've seen over the last few years show there is not much left. I think it was some wood poking out of a brick base.

Interestingly, I looked at the Google Earth link, it looks like there must have been an airstrip there - you can see pretty clearly what look like the remains of two runways (or maybe one runway and a taxiway). And one of the tiny nearby roads is "Old Airport Road". I wonder if that had any bearing on their decision to film at that spot, assuming it was still functioning in 1968 (maybe easier getting people & equipment in)... Gotta have a trawl around the Interwebs!

Edit - lol, that didn't take long - looks like it was / is this one, opended in 1958 http://www.airnav.com/airport/03UT and possibly still viable

OK; so i messaged Kino Lorber Studio Classics via Facebook regarding all things yellow, and here is how it went:


Me: Can you tell us if the new GBU Blu-ray will be yellow tinted like the last MGM effort? Thank you
Kino Lorber:   we're working on this issue.

Me: Thank you very much, that is indeed good news. I see only blue skies ahead! The life of this film is in your hands - we need no yellow, and the original mono soundtrack. You have a *real* chance here to make this release beyond definitive. Its life is in your hands...

So... it could be good news, lets hope so   Grin

According to a post on Kino Lorber Studio Classics Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/KinoLorberStudioClassics/):

"The disc will have the full version of the "skeleton scene" (without audio) which L'Immagine Ritrovata found when working on their 4K restoration"

I'm trying to find out about the pi$$ yellow situation.

Just noticed in Peter Hanley's GBU book there's a still from the Sad Hill cemetery scene where  a crew member is holding a microphone too.

The fantastic CineArchive site has just posted these on-location shots - I've not seen some of these, intrigued by the first one clearly showing a microphone recording sound (maybe they were recording sound on-set at that point?)













See http://cinearchive.org/ and http://mabellonghetti.tumblr.com/post/144126307907/henry-fonda-claudia-cardinale-charles-bronson for more. Also http://mabellonghetti.tumblr.com/tagged/sergio-leone  Smiley
8  General Information / Film Locations / Re: Request: exact leone locations in Monument Valley on: October 20, 2014, 07:29:13 AM
The carriage ride begins  where the "road" around the valley starts from, as you enter the National Park. Its a dirt track (or at least it was 10 years ago) but people can drive around in their BMWs and Winnebagos. You can also take a Navajo guided truck-ride, which will take you past the main formations (two sisters, totem pole, john ford point) all of which feature in the carriage ride. I did post some photo comparisons on here many years ago, not sure where they are now. The "bar" is no longer there, just some bricks and pieces of wood. Look for Herve Attia's "now and then" videos on Youtube. The guy's a master!

Scroll down a bit, some great behind-the-scenes shots, looks like they're taken from various French magazines of the late 60's.

I have this one - it will probably be cheaper for you to buy from Italy directly:

http://www.amazon.it/Per-Un-Pugno-Di-Dollari/dp/B00416RQLA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1339943189&sr=8-2

I believe that this is the re-release of the red box one (be careful as the DVD version and the BD version have the same box) without all the supplementary stuff in the box that I don't care for anyway.

Novecento, does that one have the English Mono soundtrack? I have the red box DVD and want to get the Blu-ray without re-buying the box. Although both are Ripley's Home Video, I'm not sure the single-disc Blu-ray has the English mono track. Thanks  Afro

14  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / DYS - Film and Illustrated Lecture in Dublin on: October 30, 2011, 03:01:11 PM
Irish Film Institute, Dublin 1st November 2011

http://www.ifi.ie/cinema/dispfilm_07.asp?filmID=7649

"To mark the 40th anniversary of Sergio Leoneís Irish-themed epic of the Mexican Revolution, the IFI is delighted to welcome Sir Christopher Frayling, the directorís biographer and author of the first full-length study of the Italian Western, who will give an illustrated lecture on Leoneís fascinating and frequently overlooked retort to the political Westerns of the late 1960s. Using excerpts from such films as John Fordís The Informer (1935) and The Quiet Man (1952), Frayling will show how Leoneís film can be seen as a response to the Americanís romantic vision of Ireland, as well as a commentary on Mussoliniís Italy, events of the Second World War, and the political turmoil of the 1970s.

Also in attendance will be director John Boorman, who assisted Leone in finding the Wicklow location used in the filmís complex and ambiguous flashback sequences. The lecture and discussion will be followed by the first Irish screening of the restored version of A Fistful of Dynamite."

And according to http://www.cinemaretro.com/index.php:
"Anyone fortunate enough to be within a dayís ride of Dublin on Tuesday, 1 November, should saddle up bright and early to catch the Irish Film Instituteís 40th anniversary presentation of Sergio Leoneís A Fistful of Dynamite, to be introduced by Leone biographer and Spaghetti Western top-gun, Sir Christopher Frayling. Also participating in the event will be director John Boorman, who assisted Leone in finding the locations used in the filmís Irish flashback sequences, and Irelandís top special-effects expert, Gerry Johnston, who worked on the action scenes shot in Tonerís pub in Dublinís Baggot Street.

Frayling, whose last appearance at the IFI (introducing Once Upon a Time in the West) was the highpoint of the 2000 season, will use extracts from such films as John Fordís The Informer (1935) and The Quiet Man (1952) to examine Leoneís response to Fordís romantic vision of Ireland and Irish history, as well as casting an eye on the political Spaghetti Westerns of film-makers such as Damiano Damiani, Sergio Sollima, and Giulio Petroni. Also included will be rare footage of Leone directing the opening sequence of A Fistful of Dynamite. "
