Welcome Benedicto! Don''t worry about your English you just may be indespensible here.

I''ve been waiting for a poster from Mexico, we have posters from all over the world (a few from South America), but none from Mexico.

Now that you have arrived I have a few questions that I''ve been wondering about for a long time.

1., How were these Italian-Spanish westerns recieved in Mexico at the time or now even? I always wondered about this, especially how Mexicans reacted to a South West/Mexico that was filmed in Spain?

2., Did the Spanish town sets look real to you, or were there any glaring differences that any Mexican could point to and say no its not like that here?

3., How did the actors and extras playing Mexicans look to you, your opinions?

4., Are there any comparably great Mexican Westerns that you can put us on to, I''ve never heard of any but don''t know if that is because we just don''t see them or if there are none? What I know of the Mexican Film Industry is nada.

Thanks in advance,
Cigar Joe

I''m from Arizona, and the landscapes in the SWs look pretty much like lots of Arizona, New Mexico, and west Texas to me.  And for the GBU sound, how about my Alltel GBU ringtone (and it was free).

I think the GBU main theme ("Ayeayee,wah-wah-wah") is the most widespread movie sound/music ever.I has been featured in numerous films,series and commercials,and usually it has been presented in a humorous context.

Would it be possible to compile a list of all the films/series/commercials that include that legendary sound?If you can think of any,let me know.I can compile a list on the basis of your replies.

You will notice on the new live Ennio DVD ARENA CONCERTO that he uses a wind instrument (like a clarinet...maybe someone can clarify) to produce the sounds, although it doesn''t sound quite like the film score, which sounds more like a human voice is being used.

GBU music turns up in new film "Rumour has It", showdown between Costner and MacLaine.  Ennio is credited at the film's end.

Once again, GBU theme music turns up.  Today, while watching NBA basketball, saw a new Mountain Dew TV commercial with the GBU theme, in a showdown.

GBU title music turns up again in "Racing Stripes", 13 minutes into the film (currently on Cinemax).  The mailman and the zebra face off, with close ups to eyes, and to hand of the mailman.  Ennio Morricone credited at end of film.

Early 20 seconds or so of "The Ecstasy of Gold" turned up on History Detectiveds today on PBS HD near about 45 minutes into the show, at beginning of the third "search", trying to authenticate a poem from 1780 written by a Daniel Goodhue.  GBU music turns up everywhere - has to be the most "honored" film score in that way.

You're right about that, but I believe the Rocky theme is more overused and ruined by pop culture.

I would have to say no. I think the GBU theme is used far, far more than Rocky theme, or any other movie theme, for that matter.

And thank you Cusser for telling us all those GBU uses!  Smiley

Shows up again, this time in "We are Marshall".  Matthew McConaughey whistles it to the Head of Marshall, after telling him to approach the NCAA in person, with a gunfighter's mentality.  That was in 1971, so GBU was already out a few years.

what about the title?!!!!!!!!!
talk about a phrase becoming part of the language!

Ironically, the Italian is good, UGLy and Bad.
I doubt that version would have become so famous (Sergio and hizza titles).
You gotta giva United Artist credit for re-ordering the title. Of course "bad' should follow 'good'
