Cigar joe, just browsing through the post, I noticed some entries mentioned on your Feb 03 update are gone now. Did you deliberatly scrap them or did you accidentily restart from an old version of the list ?

2  Films of Sergio Leone / A Fistful of Dollars / Re: Help with nagging question? on: April 22, 2005, 02:59:09 AM
Ok, have been searching around a bit.

First of all I think we all agree Ramon's gun is an automatic one. There's no crank visible in the movie, we don't see Ramon cranking. There's clearly two handles on the backside which would be stupid if you had to put one hand on a crank somewhere anyway. So, automatic ...

All machine gun sites I've come accross agree on one thing. The first automatic machine gun was produced by Maxim and demonstrated in 1885. They also say it was purchased by the British Army in 1889 and first used in 1893, but then again you never know who was at the demo and learned a thing or two there  Grin .

So if Leone was true to history it gives us a minimum timing for FOD. However I've not seen a single picture resembling the Ramon gun, so I stick with Harmonica's first opinion, it's just a cool looking prop.

From the same site, seems like handcrank to me. Also the hole-pattern in the barrel doesn't look the same to me.
4  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Wrist support used in Once upon a time in Mexico on: April 04, 2005, 01:19:05 AM
Found this trivia for Once upon a time in Mexico on imdb :

The leather wrist-support strap that Antonio Banderas wears on his hand is the same that Clint Eastwood wears in Per qualche dollaro in pił (1965). Also, both characters hurt their hand in the their respective previous movies.

But they got it wrong as The man with no name was hurt on his left hand in FOD while he's wearing the wrist support on his right hand in FFDM.

Could be this link was posted already, but it contains some interesting info about Sibley, Canby, Glorietta Pass all mentioned in the movie. Seems most of the action in that region was in New Mexico and not Texas.

dyu know what pisses me off - the poster the sheriff shows tuco in GBU has tuco's face off, but u can clearly see 'Guy Calloway' is the wanted name!! obviously couldnt fit 'Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez' on the poster so just used the old one from FAFDM!  Grin

You can actually see the photo of Tuco is stuck on the old poster, right bottom corner is not stuck well and is showing a shadow.

I doubt however it's the exact same poster as in FAFDM. That one is slightly torn on the left side and I can't see that on the GBU poster. Also the drawing of Guy is bigger than the picture of Tuco, but you can't see it in GBU. It could be that they whiped out the drawing. Even the paper color and thickness looks different to me(though that might be just an impression). My guess is they just used another print of the FAFDM poster.

Actually just looked even a bit more in detail. The poster in FAFDM hanging in the train station is not even the same one Mortimer slides under the door thought the story makes you believe it is.

For one it's lacking the two zero's Guy supposedly added himself but that could just be a continuity error. But I took screenshots and it's actually not even the same drawing of the face on both posters. So even those two are two different copies.
