8236  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / Re: A Fistful Of Dynamite (R2 UK DVD) on: February 19, 2005, 06:38:03 PM
1) The italian version also has Steiger saying at the end: "What about me"? ("E io adesso...?)

2) I have seen the movie thrice at the theatres and once on TV and I would have bet that there was more to the rape scene  than I can see on the italian dvd release. But probably I'm not remembering well.

3) Are we sure that the last "flashback" is really such a one?  Couldn't be this just  a way Coburn finds to reconcile himself with the friend he murdered by sharing, though only in his imagination, his girl?

That makes me think that probably, when they dubbed it in italian, they made it "7.30" to lip-synch it better. 7.50 is a sillable more.

This has probably been noticed by other people, but I couldn't find any reference in this board so I post it anyway. When the old man at the station hands 3 train tickets at Elam which throws them away, he says that the price is $7.30: which would make a rather odd fare. Is the same amount quoted in the english version or is it a more reasonable $6.30?

I presume "nando gozillu" is for "nando gazzolo". A question for the american viewers: are the american releases of GBU, OUTW and FFD dubbed or with the original voices?

The only possible substitute for wallach that comes to mind is milian. but as much as i like him, i don't think he could have been just as good.
about taking the bad's role, well, it would have been interesting: it would have livened up a character which is not articulated enough. worth a try.
but i think an unpardonable miscasting is that of giuffré: no italian audience, i think, can take him seriously in that role.

last year i wrote an essay on Morricone and his use of music in the good the bad and the ugly. i was given top marks for it and would be happy to forward it if it will help you.

Why not post it here?

I don't think we can rank Leone with the truly greats (each one has his own. Mine: Fellini, Resnais, Godard, Welles, Kubrick, Antonioni, Chaplin, Ejizenstein, Lang, Murnau and somebody else that does't come to my mind right now) because a great movie is not just (but this is only my opinion) a matter of having a way with images, but it is also about something that makes you reflect, that lives with you after you have seen it. Leone's movies or Hitchcock's or the James Bond movies with Connery and Moore, entertain me like nothing else: but then the experience ends with the movie itself. So I think that he was at his best when he was just popular (in the trilogy), and when he tried to go artsy (which he couldn't because it didn't belong to his vein of great popular storyteller) he lost partially himself.

The film being described in the article was "Indio Black"

I went to see the movie with my father and two of my uncles who, after not even half an hour, decided they had had enough and left the theatre. I saw again the movie , or tried to, in the '80's, on TV, but can't remember much. Was it that bad?

Had been the topic about "character", then it would have been Tuco, followed - not so close, though - by Frank and Indio. But talking being about "hero", then it can't be but Eastwood.

Hi everybody! My first post here. I'm delighted and amazed to find people who believe, like me, that FAFDM is Leone's best. I think OUATITW is more pretentious and dilatated, though it contains memorable scenes. DYS, I'm tempted to prefer it to the former, but it is not as tight as FAFDM and politics in movies of this kind are better left off. So it's between GBU and FAFDM. The former has the best Morricone's tune, the best performance in a Leone's movie (and, who knows, maybe in any western movie at all) more production values. but it also has slow-moving and preposterous scenes (the bridge), the shoot-out in the dead city, half-serious, half not; the too melodramatic beating scene. FAFDM (which has been my favourite since I saw it as a kid in the theatres at least, if I remember well, 3 times) has none of these flaws: the plot is tighter, fast-moving, never boring. It has inconsistencies, but one doesn't notice them because of the rhythm.
OUATIA: one of the dullest movies I ever saw.
