4921  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: Leone Lover's Guide To Other Spaghetti Westerns on: July 14, 2005, 09:42:20 AM
Yes,but do you really think that a co-international production directed by a British James Bond director(sorry i didn't check all my facts! ) qualifies as an Italian western? Likewise it is big news to me that among many other great things Sean Connery is now a spaghetti western star,not to mention Ursula Andress!!!.I have yet to see any literature films that refers to these films as being Italian(spaghetti) westerns.Thinking about it i seem to remember Shalako being shown on television recentlly and it was described in a TV guide as being the best British western ever made!!!

Red Sun,Shalako,100 Rifles and El Condor need to be dropped from the list as although some were filmed in Spain they are  big budgetted American financed productions with American directors.However much influenced by the spaghetti's , they should not be mistaken as Italian westerns.
Off the top of my head from the 80+ spaghettis i have so far i would  consider for the "A" list:-

I'm sure i have read somewhere that there was the odd spaghetti western made here and there after 1978 including the excellent Jonathan of the Bears from 1993 starring Franco Nero and directed  by Enzo Castellari who made the classic Keoma(1976) and numerous Leone parodies in the 1960's.

I also found Hughes book(plus various polls and review sites) an excellent starting point and although i disagree with somes of his opinions  i already have 26 of the 31 films reviewed and i feel they were good choices.I have also bought many of the additional key films listed at the back of the book.
Like Marco i have tended to concentrate on certain actors(and directors).I have all  Franco Nero westerns(bar Cry Onion-this really is bad apparently!!)and these are all great.Tessari's  Long Live Your Death(with Eli Wallach)is very similar in quality and style to Corbucci's Companeros/Mercenary films.Likewise Castellari's Jonathan of the Bears  is a deadringer for his own classic Keoma.Other top notch Nero films never mentioned here are Man,Pride and Vengeance and Deaf Smith and Johnny Ears.
It would be a shame if anyone was put off the Gianni Garko Sartana series as personally i think that the one discussed  in this thread is easily  the weakest in the series.The organ doubling as a cannon and the exploding indian robot in Light the Fuse Sartana is Coming need to be seen to be believed!!!
4925  Films of Sergio Leone / For a Few Dollars More / Additional scenes on new GermanDVD? on: June 29, 2005, 04:02:59 AM
I guess most of you know from another thread that Torsten Kaiser from TLE will be issuing, in due course ,new editions of  the  Dollar films including among many other goodies additional scenes in both films!!!This comes as a big surprise as i was under the impression (from the limited reading material i have)that both films were released uncut and pretty much as Leone intended(yes,i am aware of the recent butchered FFDM dvd's)
As Torsten cannot say at present,does anyone know what these new scenes could be?

Hi Torsten,
Brilliant news about your upcoming "Nobody" and "Dollar" releases.Does this include GBU as part of the "Dollars" trilogy and if so will there be any new/extended scenes which were not  included on the MGM Special Edition DVD.
Are you by any chance planning to release a Fistful of Dynamite  as I understand that there are 162 and 157 minute versions out there?
4927  General Information / Sergio Leone News / Re: Best Soundtrack CD? on: June 23, 2005, 04:54:09 AM
I have very recently bought the Morricone 2cd "Western Quintet" set which comprises the complete soundtracks to a Fistful of Dynamite(my personal favourite!!!),My Name is Nobody(great),Tepepa(superb),Companeros(excellent) and A Fist Goes West(pretty good).
The total running time is about 155 minutes and unbelievably i  got my copy brand new  for just under £8 on UK Amazon(i've also seen this for $15 on Amazon USA).I cannot recommend this set high enough and i have forever been playing this !!!
