ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST Is famous for its almost dialouge-less opening. What American movie of the late 1950's (a western) is equally famous for a nearly five minute opening, in which several of the main characters are brilliantly established without any  talking? Pint of Guinness for the first correct answer. ;)

Sorry, this should have ended up in TRIVIA GAMES.

High Noon, ain't it?

btw Belkin - paid careful attention to that pub while watching FOD, very cool!  Seems like a perfect place to toss back a pint or 12.


And what if your hand should shake a little?  And that Gringo so fast on the draw.

No, high noon has dialogue from quite early on. I watched it last night as it happens. Although interestingly Lee Van Cleef's character (Colby) never utters a word, although the other two members of Miller's gang who are on screen quite as often get quite a few lines. He's also the first character to appear on screen.


It's class.

High Noon, fraid not, my friend. One clue, the movie I have in mind was made some years later, 1959, but good try.
TONER'S BAR (FOD) is a very cool pub. If you ever get there, the old barman is a grumpy throw-back but after you sink a few pints of THE GOLDEN NECTAR, he will appear almost friendly. Then is the time to ask him about SERGIO and COBURN taking over his bar.  ;)

OK! Think I'll put this one to sleep. The answer is RIO BRAVO!  ;)

  It's not a western, but The Mechanic has an excellent opening with no dialogue.  I think the first word isn't spoken until 15 or 16 minutes into the movie.  And OUATITW's Charles Bronson is in it.

  Spooky.
