General Discussion / SERGIO'S DAD.....
« on: April 09, 2005, 06:41:32 AM »

 Vincenzo LEONE (stage name Roberto Roberti) directed and acted in films during the silent era, but for reasons that are not entirely clear he was prevented from working during the 1930s by Italy's Fascist regime. He did manage to direct three films between 1939 and 1945, although the last of these was not released until 1951.

Has anybody ever seen the movies of Sergio's father?

Off-Topic Discussion / MICHAEL WINNER.

I'm not a fan of Michael Winner, but, today in a second hand store, I picked up two westerns directed by him. LAWMAN (1971) with BURT LANCASTER and CHATO'S LAND (1972) with CHARLES BRONSON. Got them both for 50 pence! That might be a bad omen but I reckon I'll watch em' over Easter to escape THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD and a host of ROMAN VS. CHRISTIAN movies that are on the cards over this chocolate festival!  ;)

Well, got my day sorted. Copious cans of Guinness cooling in d' fridge. Movie menu for this great day includes: in the morning, JOHN FORD'S "THE QUIET MAN" (what else could it be?). Lunch time (after a plate of boiled bacon n' cabbage) will be THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (in honor of BRONSON'S character who is part Irish) and round of the evening (after the televised highlights of world parades and another plate of boiled bacon n' cabbage) with another FORD classic.....SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON! Cheers my friends and a HAPPY ST. PATRICKS to yis' all!

Other Films / The Outlaw (1943)

Just watched HOWARD HUGHES obsessive Billy The Kid western THE OUTLAW. Not a great movie but containing some great scenes. One in particular stands out. A stand off between Billy and Doc in which they decide to draw on the last note of a chirpy cuckoo clock! FAFDM sprang to mind as I watched it. Am sure LEONE musta' caught this one. Anybody else ever catch it?

Other Films / Boetticher Westerns
« on: February 02, 2005, 02:11:16 PM »
This movie (BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE) is playing on Friday afternoon (UK. TV). I've never seen it but, one newspaper reviewer has given it five stars out of five. What intrests me about the article is he (the reviewer)states that this western pre-dates the spaghetti's in style and character. Once I see the word SPAGHETTI mentioned in any context, makes it (for me) a must-see. Anybody here ever catch it? Hear of it? Any info on it? Will watch it and let yis' know what I think!  It stars RANDOLPH SCOTT, who, funny enough, starred in a western shown on TV this very afternoon "RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY". Have seen it countless times before and look forward to seeing it again as it is A BLOODY MASTERPIECE!!!!! Found this (below) on net.

Plot Summary for
Buchanan Rides Alone (1958)
On his way home to West Texas, Tom Buchanan rides into the Californian border town of Agry, and into a feud between several members of the Agry family. In helping out a Mexican seeking revenge on one of them, Buchanan finds himself against the whole family

Other Films / Yellow Sky (1948)
« on: February 01, 2005, 01:38:36 AM »

Just watched YELLOW SKY. A fine western. Classic even. Apart from opening and closing soundtrack there is no music throughout the movie just heightened sound effects. A terrific desert scene where PECK and gang dying from thirst come across a town.....a GHOST TOWN called YELLOW SKY. This early American movie must have been seen by LEONE! Shot in glorious black n' white this movie felt like a young spag straining at the leash!  ;)

General Discussion / LEONE BIO-FLIC?
« on: January 22, 2005, 11:16:24 AM »
With all the movie bio's jumping out of the woodwork (RAY CHARLES, BOBBY DARIN etc.) isn't it time for a LEONE movie biograph? What do you folks think? Good idea? Bad idea? Who would you cast as SERGIO? Or indeed the young (ish) Clint? LVC? Etc. Would this be a way of (re) introducing a fresh audience to the spag genre? Would love to hear your opinions!
