So these are completely different transfers than the MGM discs?

Thanks for the insight into the exhibition.  The guy who has the metal breast plate from FOD is the assistant art director (CL). In relation to that point, were many (or just a handful) of CL's sketches in the exhibition?

Are you referring to Carlo Simi's sketches? I'm not sure who CL stands for? Do you know this person? There were maybe 5-10 sketches of Carlo's, including the original costume sketch for Eastwood (proving the poncho was very much Carlo's idea), costume sketches for OUATITW and I think GBU, and some blueprint designs for the house in OUATITW, I think most if not all of these sketches are reproduced in the exibit book if you're able to pick it up.
558  General Information / Sergio Leone News / Leone Exhibition Premiere! A couple of pictures... (large size) on: July 28, 2005, 10:39:58 PM
Well, I had a great time! It was a really well put together event.

I was lucky enough to tag along on a tour of the exibit that Frayling was giving to his family just before the presentations. It was amazing to see how much he knew about every peice in the collection, and how excited he was to show and tell. I also had a chance to speak with Mickey Knox, John Landis and Joe Dante. I embarrassed myself by going up to the bad guy from desperado and saying "hey - aren't you the bad guy from desperado?" He was very nice, but I think I should have tried to figure out his actual name before I approached him.

A couple of great tidbits I overheard/asked about/saw in person:

1. The one (and only) poncho is there. There are sewn up bullet holes on the back of it (confirming that there was only one used- these holes are from fistful, and they can be seen in stills from the good, the bad and the ugly. All of the other gear is there (boots/original snakeskin grips/belt/arm brace) - no sheepskin vest and the gun itself is as replica. I asked the Prof where they got it. He said from Eastwood who reportedly had some trouble finding it. (He had it on display at the Hog's Breath until someone tried to steal it - it was then stuffed in a laundry bag???!!! and buried under a pile of his other stuff (according to Frayling's wife)

2. They found the original steel plate from the end scene in fistful - but the owner would not lend it!

3. They also found the wagons from GBU and OUTITW, but had no space to display them!

4. John Landis was 18 when he P.A.'d on OUATITW. He tells a great anecdote in the small documentary that they have playing, which I won't spoil for you.

5. No pictures allowed ( the exibit book has pretty much everything in it anyways- it's a great book) I only found this out after I had taken a few shots. I kind of feel like I'm doing free advertising for the exibit, so I'm going to post a couple of shots I took before being confronted by a security guard (who kept his eye on me thereafter)

On to a couple of pics, I don't want to display too many, as I'm a little wary of permissions.....they are large size!

1. Here's the first meeting between Frayling and Claudia. I just happened to be there at the time....she had no idea who Frayling was at first!

2. Claudia in front of the posters....she still looks great...

3. I have more shots but I'll just whet your appitite with this....

I highly recommend seeing the exibit - I travelled all the way from Toronto and it was worth it!

I wonder if there's a scene like this in the novelization....hmmm...I'll have to check. I will say that this is probably(maybe) before the "6 is the perfect number scene" because we don't see any of the other bandits, and it doesn't look like we're in that forested sort of location at all...Notice van cleef is not looking at Clint but behind him...
560  General Information / Sergio Leone News / Re: An italian book on: July 20, 2005, 08:17:52 AM
Sorry, I don't read or speak italian - are you saying this is a book with photographs of promotional material? Could you sum up what the description reads? It looks interesting....

561  Films of Sergio Leone / A Fistful of Dollars / new Fistful dvd - any easter eggs? on: May 11, 2005, 12:49:13 PM
Has anybody found any easter eggs on the new dvd (or on FAFDM)?

Be nice if there was something....

563  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Italian version - list of differences on: December 13, 2004, 09:22:38 AM
I came across this at - didn't know that there was a longer version out there besides the one on the new dvd - a shame they didn't include this extra material on the us version-at least as deleted/alternate scenes (maybe the film is long enough however)

This list shows the differences in the italian dvd (original italian cut of the film)

amaze - if you could record it and make a torrent that would be "amazing" Grin I live in canada and don't have access to that channel. I would love to see this doc.

This is also a popular shot of tuco with the cannon:

The sound on the dvd & letterbox vhs is also horribly out of sync. Mgm should be embarassed. Just look at the punches in the beating scene and compare them in both versions. On the pan and scan they are perfectly in sync- on the letterbox they're like a full second off! They were showing FAFDM on television recently, and it was the same version- letterboxed, but out of sync and cut. You'd think they'd have better quality control at MGM, instead of letting the fans figure out they have an inferior version of the film. Back on topic- I have seen the still of clint with the hotel keepers wife- you can tell it's her rather clearly (especially with the dress she's wearing:). The picture is very similar to the one from the sorroco sequence of GBU, so I can see how there would be confusion.

Also, does anybody know what the line is in the italian language version- what the literal translation would be?

569  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Dub change on "Idiots- it's for you" on: June 07, 2004, 08:35:50 AM
Don't know what happened to my previous post- didn't seem to show up properly- I was asking if anyone had noticed that Clint's reaction to angel eye's note near the end of the film was actually "idiot's- it's for us" (watch his mouth) as opposed to the dubbed english which he says to Tuco- "it's for you" Was wondering if anybody knew if this was an Eastwood adlib later on - of if Mickey Knox (english dialog writer) changed it.
