31  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Sergio Leone on: August 23, 2011, 01:29:47 AM
What I think sets the Good Bad Ugly apart from other films is that Sergio Leone brought Style. Pathos,Humour,Violence,Sadness,and Fun to this film.......I think you would be hard pushed to find another film with all these attributes .The audience can assoociate with all three Characters.........He should have won an Oscar for this film............With all the modern techniques and film story lines ........Good the bad and ugly outshines them all.
All other Italian Westerns were just pure rip off !
Morricone should have received Oscar for Score
 and Eli Wallach as Tuco ,But it was ahead of its time and nothing had been heard like it then........Time goes past and now it is a classic
I would rate this as one of the most entertaining films of all times

34  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Re: Number of bullets in calloways gun??? on: August 05, 2011, 08:30:29 AM
The other day I think I spotted another continuity error in the opening of FAFDM, besides the obvios wanted poster. When LVC knocks on the door to calloways hotel room, the calloway fires 4 shots at the door. then LVC kicks the door in, sees that his target is escaping, heads downstairs and shoots the horse and nails calloway in the shoulder. but then calloway draws his gun and fires 5-6 shots at van cleef. when did he reolad??? Smiley
If you think thats bad watch Tombstone ....Doc Holliday ....(Gun fight at OK coral scene)] and Open Range Shootout scene at end..Kevin Cosner ...and you will struggle to undestand why they call them six shooters.........Also Gun Fanning whislt looking cool is very impractical as stated by Wyatt Earp ......No doubt Cigar Joe will explain to me the errors of my ways  us and lead me  into the light.

Never claimed to know it all pard, just laying out that its all very plausible.
Again carefully check out this entry:
Anything is plausible ........We have to offset that with what is likely .......Pard

In the fictional GBU universe Blondies gunsmith could infact have been Thomas Cofer, a Confederate gunsmith, who filed for a patent in Richmond as soon as the south succeeded for a revolver using a bore though cylinder with special metallic cartridges.  Cofer produced revolvers from 1861 to 1862 and is suspected to be the gunsmith responsible for one existing example from that time period converting a .36 cap and ball Manhattan to a .38 rimfire. #1 Blonideís gun!  And Iím not kidding you when I say that Sergio Leone could have quite possibly read this!

Thomas Cofers story is an interesting one and itís been a real treat digging up history on this guy.

I would be amazed if Leone had read this as I would have thought he would have other things on his mind like making an entertaining western !
Cofer's Confederate patent for a revolver with bore through cylinder and metallic cartridges dated 1861.

Cofer's first cylinder model.

#1- Page 140-144 of Confederate Handguns by William A. Albaugh, III Hugh Benet, Jr. Edward N. Simmons.  1963 Riling and Lentz, Philadelphia

i would like to give you more informations about these guns...i m a collectioner of black powder guns replicas and i can answer to all yours technical questions Wink Wink

first of all i m sure that you knows that the blondie gun is a colt navy 1851 in a 36 inch caliber...(octogonal barrel)

the tuco s gun is a sudist copy of the colt navy 1851 because in this case the barrel is  circular.the real name of this model is "griswold an gunnison" in a 36 caliber either. historicaly the gun s frame is not in steel  but in  an alliage of "bronze" (sorry i don't know the name of the metal alliage in english")
the production bought some italian copy of the great gun  firm uberti wich was the historically speaking the first firm to produce very good quality replicas of black powder guns...(first productionstarted in 1958!!)
the guns used in the gbu are not like the original guns because as you wrote before the conversion gun appeared later after the civil war
but it was more practical to use and safer for actors... (ask benito stefanelli he was a specialist as master of weapons...)
the angel eyes gun is a remington new model army in 44 inch caliber...

the color picture of the gun in josey wales is a model of conversion "colt 1861 army" it use normal metallic cartridge

the other one are colt 1861 army . only used with black powder (cap and ball system)
the difference between the 2 models is the steel stick under the barrel for the black powder model (in french it is named "levier de chargement " or loading *levier*

and as a conclusion the 2 enormous gun of clint in the movie "josey..." are  colt walker in cal.44 the most powerful (and heavy!)percussion colt of the black powder colt history:
Nice to hear an honest opinion .....and not  for once a  all in your face "I think know it all " view from Cigar Joe

Great stuff C.J.: keep them coming!! Afro
As for conveying odors and scents, who could have thought back 1964 that one day you could actually "own" FOD and watch it as many times as you wanted, freezing the frames etc.
So my guess is that our nephews one day will be able to buy a disc called "superscent pinkray" or similar. Can you imagine being actually able to smell Tuco's feet when he washes them in the bucket in the almerian desert?Huh Wink
Yes You are quite right........Back in 1967/68..........The only way to see anything .....was to see the whole films .i must have seen them quite a few times back then......The closest you could could to it then that was to listen to the  soundtrack albums and image the image from the films........I used to drive my family mad playing all the Dollars film soundtracks.........Because what has become classic acceptable soundtracks now......was very different in 67/68.............Watching it on dvd now is heaven
39  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: What is the most priceless GBU quote/line from the movie? on: July 28, 2011, 11:48:16 PM
I like the line when Tuco rushes out to get Angel eyes and his men on his own ....and Blondie says "You wanna die alone "? .......then the music starts.

I also like the scene where one of Angel eyes men is following Blondie .......Blondie swings him around says "Tut Tut "..then shoots him.

Point is .... it another independant view ! There are two kinds of people in this world my friend ........Those who think they know it all and those who do.

42  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Shane on: April 28, 2011, 12:23:32 PM
I watched Shane today and saw a lot of similarites to Dollar Films...........Mainly when Shane Twirls his gun at the end after killing Wilson........very similar when Manco does similar thing in FAFDW
after killing guys in saloon at beginning of film .Also when he rides in alone at beginning from nowhere similar in FOD as in Shane.

Eli Wallach was just on stage at 11:07pm to be honored
after getting his lifetime achievement Oscar earlier this evening!

Congratulations Mr. Wallach

Should have got an Oscar in 1966 for playing Tuco.

What did the UK release look like? Was it the basic orange cover with the red border?
Yes thats the one..Orange Cover thought quite basic for the film with minimal comments
