Was in my  local HMV the other day,came across a DVD of My Name Is Nobody,was surprised since I had not heard of any release on the UK[or anywhere].Picture quality is good if not great,extras are a bit limited but there is a 10 min interview with Terence Hill which is quite interesting.Good to see it in full widescreen at last.

Thoughtv you might be interested,it is available from www.play.com.

yes I bought it last week, I assumed it had been out for a while, haven't watched it yet but dissapointed to hear picture quality isnt great, unlike the Trinity DVD which is superb in picture quality.

I haven't heard anything about a Region 1 release for My Name is Nobody. I tried to look it up to see if it was going to come out or was already out, but couldn't come up with anything.

Been a long, long time since I've seen it. Glad to hear it's out on DVD in some regions, at least.

The quality is said to be rather good. You can read customer reviews at www.amazon.com

i think it is one of the best westerns, better than a fistful of dollars... (but a bit disappointing in a few ways). Why don't we talk about this very good "almost leone" western?

I also really like this film,though not as much as Fistful Of Dollars.The film seems a bit uneven,with some bits obviuosly coming from Leone the producer and others from Valerei the director.However,it's great fun!Some of it is indeed funny and the Henry Fonda character adds a touch of melancholy,giving the film some depth.I adore the Morricone score,which often seems like s spoof of his other Leone music.

what about the hall of mirrors scene, brilliant,
but (I know I've asked this before, but I'll try again) when Bond duels with Scaramanga at the end of The Man with the Golden Gun it is very remenisence of Nobody. There must be a Bond enthusiast out there who knows where the inspiration for this scene came from, it must be Nobody?
Unless, nobody knows.

Probable first use of Hall of Mirrors for a shootout is in Orson Welles' LADY FROM SHANGHAI.
Antonio Margheriti liked the idea so much he used a Hall of Mirrors fight in ANTHAR L'INVINCIBILE, and a Hall of Mirrors shootout in E DIO DISSE A CAIANO.
ENTER THE DRAGON features Bruce Lee in a Hall of Mirrors Kung Fu fight.
There must be many more instances.

Hi!

No doubt, Sergio Leone was a genius.
In 1968 he directed his first masterpiece ("OUaTiA" is the second) "Once Upon a Time in the West".

After that film everyone knew that he was a fantastic director.
But why was he in 1974 and 1975 just the Co-Director of the "Nobody"-films?

I mean, he was just the second director, although he did the cinematic masterpiece "Once Upon a Time in the West" almost ten years previously.

Can somebody explain the reason to me, please?

I just watched Nobody for the first time this weekend and thought it was Great!! I peronally think it's way better than FOD and Fistful of Dynamite, just my opinion though.

THe characters are great, and the comedy in it is hilarious.

A great movie, did Leone produce/present any other films, or is this it?

He did quite a few, including a (very poor according to what I've heard) sequel to "Nobody"; "The Cat", which I have no idea of what it was about; "I'll Get A Gun", about an Italian security guard (I think) who buys a firearm and grows dangerously attached to it; and a few more, which I forget at this moment.

health problems causing him to cut his schedule  ?
maybe he enjoyed co dir. the nobody films. possible he thought the public would like to see a western comedy.
earning money from these films to film OUATIA ?
a good question.
