1  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Favorite scene? on: December 07, 2005, 09:35:16 AM
Oh the best scene is Cheyenne's first meeting with Harmonica in the tavern, run by Lionel Stander's character.

That build up with a massacre outside - how many do you suppose Cheyenne killed? - the harmonica music accompanied first sip from the "JUG" and the swinging lantern light proving Bronson's ability not to blink makes him perfect casting in the part.  Cool

The soundtrack on this scene was changed on several versions I saw, but they seem to have got it right now. Would you believe that scene was cut in some versions. No wonder it made no sense. Neither Cheyenne or Jill had every met Harmonica - so the rest of the film was extremely confusing.  Roll Eyes Those American producers - "they didn't know how to play" "Bravo" to their stupidity.   Grin


Oh the train shooting, like Harmonica using that name, Dave Jenkins is pulling our chains - or maybe the one Frank uses to start the train moving. If that scene was every filmed I haven't seen it in over 35 years of watching the film. How unlucky must I be?  Wink

Largo

What music is used in the special feature trailer?

I recently heard it in a commercial, as well.

I'vesaid this elsewhere. They use different music for THIS film?Huh  Are they mad? It may not suit the EasterEgg trailer - but would you have Lee Marvin's voice dubbing Elvis or Freddie Mercury?  Roll Eyes

Yeah the special trailer is on diffferent discs - depending where you live in the world.

Joking aside - Dayle Haddon is now the face for anti-aging cream - and her "greatest role" ?

Yeah - it is crazy - Leone didn't credit his regulars more clearly.

Perhaps it IS Victor Israel (credited on IMDB in the Good the Bad etc.

What was the name of "the actor" who played him?

Cast list has way too many bit part names -  I have been looking and find it strangely difficult to find out this "actors" name.

Any of you people know? Help appreciated.

Once Upon A Time In The West has been my favourite film since its release in Great Britain in 1969 - so the query about The Good The Bad The Ugly film being better is a redundant question as far as I am concerned.

Just sit down and watch both films sometime and tell me that Leone didn't progress between the making of the two films. From the opening - which has never been surpassed (hell its soooo good, no-one has even tried to better it) it is a masterwork. I have had hours of endless fun discussing the nuances of this movie on IMDb and have enjoyed watching the train crash that was the first version released being rectified over the years until the movie is an acknowledged classic - discussed by professors and movie buffs the world over. The Good The Bad etc hasn't that sort of status and never will have - although it was a good film. Anyway, in my opinion, Sergio Leone best Eastwood western was A Few Dollars More - it was stripped down and exciting.  A good double act with Lee Van Cleef and it wasn't so bloated with Civil Wars, chasing Army Gold etc. Cool
