61  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Mara & Marianne on: December 12, 2002, 02:29:45 PM
Here you go: after several searches on my film databases this is what I came up with.

Marianne Koch is listed as playing Marisol in AFOD. STUDIO SYSTEM (which our company pays thousands of dollars for per year) supports IMDB.

Mara Krupp is listed as playing Mary in FAFDM. Again using both databases, I only find her listed in this role and she never played a postitute. Interesting to note, she is listed in several places as "Mara Krup" just one "p".

Neither women were in GBU as far as credits are concerned and neither played a prostitute nor did any of them end up in bed with Clint. Hope that helps.

I have to agree with SHOBARY regarding Mortimer logic in where they would be. He understands his less experienced friend very well (he even said he was exactly like him at that age). Even more important, he understands Indio, who doesn't trust anyone. Indio even states to his Fat Buddy, " I knew he was a bounty killer (I think that's right) from the beginning." Seems to me, if I were Indio, I wouldn't do anything Monco suggested. Lastly, Mortimer knew as he stated, El Paso was West and the only logical dirrection to go would be East.
All those facts combined, Mortimer could easily anticipate were they would go. He probably knew were Indio's allies resided and let's be honest, there weren't too many towns to hide at this time.

I have to agree with 'visitor'. According to the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, Thunderball grossed 77.6kk intl. and 63.6kk us making worldwide gross 141.2kk to be exact.

I feel I can answer your question regarding Eastwood being called 'Blondie' with a degree of experience. I lived in Colombia for two years. I have what I would consider bark brown hair and I was often called, 'Mono'. Mono can mean two things (maybe more) the first is monkey and the second is slang for 'Blondie'. In other words, at least the people of Colombia, hair color what not so important as their ability to recognize a person as a North American.

At frist, I thought it was an insult but after a while I realized most Colombians used as a form of admiration and love. It was a loving way of saying 'Gringo'. Now I must say, TUCO would use this word with a variety of sentiments, anger, frustration, joy, etc. Most of all, I think there was an underlying sense of jealousy. That too is something I experienced in Colombia...their desire to be like us (Guns and Roses could be heard at every street corner and everyone asked me if I knew Michael Jordan but no one seemed to know what sport he played).  

Lastly (I hope I'm not boring ya'll), Gringo has an interesting history (if you don't already know). During the war in Texas (The stand off at the Alamo). The American troops wore green or had green on their uniforms.  As a form of taunting, in broken English, the Mejicanos would say, "Green Go" and it later became one word, 'Gringo' to refer to citizens from the US. This has stuck, at least in Colombia, as a strictly a word to be used for us folks from the US of A. For example, Germans, French or even folk from the UK were never refered to as, 'Gringo(s)'.

65  General Information / General Discussion / I have heard rumors... on: December 10, 2002, 07:32:09 PM
I work for a small production company on the WB. I continue to hear rumors of attempts to ressurrect, if you will, the SW genre. I know Mal Paso is on the lot (Eastwood's production company) and I'm trying to see if he's people have anything to do with it.

Part of the rumor is that if this were to happen it, there would be an attempt to shoot the film in Europe with a foreign crew as well as Leone's son's blessing...

I was wondering if any of you have heard anything.

Well, I haven't heard a better explination. I'm going to chalk this one up to blind faith in ya'll.

Mucho Thanks!

first and formost... this sight is exceptional and it looks great! thank you!

my question is this: as the man with no name rides into town, a man with sombrero rides a ass out of town. as the man with no name looks back at him, he sees a note tagged onto his back which says something to the effect, "adios..."

everytime i watch this, i try to figure out what's going on. is the guy blind, deaf, mute and that is how he has to communicate? has be been run out of town (doesn't seem the rojos style, they would have shot him)? or is it just some weird leone thing, something from his childhood he just wanted to put in there?

i would love to know if anyone knows or has their theories. either way i would be greatful!
