I was just talking to a friend, and he claimed that only blokes watched westerns, i challenged him, "do don't be so discriminating you pig."  Now i am being put to the test, how many woman really look up westerns on the internet.  I would be intrested to know the percentage of males to females on this site.  Thanks  Caius

in all fairness to the ladies...i have met a few young gals on the web who are huge fans of leone (especially the sw). i spent six weeks chatting with a girl regarding leone via a chat room. it wasn't until she mentioned something about her BOYFRIEND that i began to wonder if she was man or woman. she told me she was not gay but a female. i was impressed with her passion for leone... too bad she doesn't live in california...

Well I'm a girlie AND a fan of Leone.  I always enjoyed the cheesy wham-bam John Wayne style westerns as a kid, but the Leone films are in another class!  There is so much to think about in every movie.  So lads, there are some appreciative ladies out there - too bad I don't live in California!  ;)

Wow,you must be the FIRST woman that I've ever encountered on a Sergio Leone message board(not that there are many SL message boards  ;) ),at least you're the first poster that I've known to be a woman.I think there are very few female Leone fans or even female western fans.In fact,I believe westerns to be one of the most male-dominated things in existence.

Well, my wife (born & raised in Montana) has always liked westerns, she said they showed an aywfun lot of them at the local "movie house" but her tastes run to the more comedic side, some of her favorites are "Cat Ballou", "Support Your Local Sheriff/Gunfighter", "The Halleluia Trail" etc., etc.

I disagree.  I know quite a few women who like westerns.  My grandmother was the person that introduced me to watching westerns - she always had them on in the aftrenoons when I went to visit.  And I know of other members of this board who are women - including the lady who is currently 5th on the list of top posters!   :)

My wife, unfortunately, has never understood my love of Sergio Leone's masterpieces. I tried to get to sit and watch OUATITW with me and she was dying of boredom during the scene with the opening credits.

Here I am thinking that it's really a piece of cinematic genius with the closeups of Mr. Elam and Woody Strode and the sounds of the train station and a fly buzzing or water dropping and she thinks it's just artsy-fartsy crap.

I love her dearly, but she just doesn't get it.

The showdown between Frank and Harmonica with Morricone's spellbinding soundtrack playing or the The Trio in the The Good, The Bad and The Ugly waiting to shoot it out in Sad Hill cemetary  is some of the most incredible and mesmerizing film footage ever shot in the history of film.

Well, I'm 20 years old and I know about ... zero girls that like Leone...  Too bad, I don't understand it...  Maybe they think it's too macho, or too slow.  It's strange that they like films like Pulp Fiction then...  I think it's the general idea people have about westerns.  A lot of people still have the old-fashioned American westerns in mind and I still have the feeling that westerns are a 'guy thing'.  Too bad.

Il Buono..

The bad news is that even though you're only 20 and think that you may have alot of years in front of you to understand the female mind, it actually doesn't get any easier...!!..    ???  :)

My wife can sit through The Terminator or any other modern action film and really enjoy it...

But there's just something about the fact that a great story with great actors happens to take place in the West of the late 1900's that just turns her off.

It might have something to do with the fact that in order to fully enjoy a movie or a book or a song, for example, there has to be some connection - on some level, between the viewer/listener and the piece of work. You have to identify with some of the lyrics or identify with a particular character in a film and understand his motives.

In TGTBATU, there's not exactly alot of women for her to glom onto. The same with FAFDM. Of course, in FOD and OUATITW, there is a couple of woemn who are important to the plot.

But she doesn't like those either.

So go figure.

That's funny... oldtimer... ;)  Yeah, it must be something with the old west specifically, because a lot of women like Dances with Wolves... strange.  And indeed, figuring out the female -seemingly extraterrestrial- race is impossible...  If they don't like Leone, they are not to be saved...  They will be cursed into damnation... ;D

Hi everybody. I have to say - Leone's films are my favourite. There's everything I require from films. Great plot, great acting, great characters, great camera .......... I can watch them over and over. Despite I'm a woman.  :D :D ;)

For years I tried to explain to my girlfriend why the first scene of OUTW is one the four or five mythical openings for a film.

For her, ir's a boring scene.

I think it explains all.....
