Did managed to see the trailer on the 'Fistful of Trailers' DVD. Mildly amusing little bit with Carol Baker's charactor & the Captain sitting eating a meal. She states that he 'doesn't come across as a native indian'. Cleef finishes chewing his food and quite dryly puts is hand up a says 'how*' and carrys on eating.  Grin

Also this film is available on DVD in one of those 'canned laughter' audio tracks. oh dear.

* The univeral 'hollywood Indian' greeting 'how' is actually based on the Dakota and Lakota Sioux word 'Hau' which does mean hello. But only indians of the great plains used it. Not Navajo, Cheyenne or Blackfoot. Its like a Russians or Italians saying Hola or Bonjour all the time.  Grin

I've often wondered about LVC's choices post LEONE. But I suppose when he played the part in FAFDM, Leone had no real track record. When it and the rest were released, LVC like CLINT, had no idea how big they would become. And when they went thru the roof once the public caught em' and the word spread, maybe, LVC stuck around accepting all those SPAG roles hoping that each new film would be helmed by a new LEONE! And each new one would be as big and ground breaking as the ones he did for SL? But then again, maybe he viewed himself simply as a very lucky jobbing actor and took advantage of movie offers in a very precarious buisness! Either way I'm just glad that LEONE included him in, what is now  an historic spag hall of fame!

I'm just wondering if during the course of filming a SW back then with an international polygot cast and crew if you can really tell how anything is going to turn out as a finnished product.

Like you all have already stated a lot of chances and gambles must have been taken by all.

Well, I've been off gigging, so haven't been around for a couple of days, and thought I'd catch up with whats going on in the forrum!

I sat all the way through Bad Mans River last summer, having picked up a copy in a Bargain Basement (together with Future World...... and we won't go THERE!  Not the same appeal as West World, with a very freaky "love" cameo by Brynner).  To me, it was one of those Spaghetti Westerns where at times (some how) I enjoyed it, at other times my fingers twitched ever closer to the "off" button.  A feeling I get the impression may happen again when I watch Captain Apache by the sounds of it!  Although maybe this time there may be a flinch too many, and the button is finally pressed.

I think it is correct to say though that most actors are prone to the odd rubbish.  Even the mighty Clint made Pink Cadillac!!!

On a side note to Pink Cadillac did you ever notice Jim Carrey in the bg in one of the casino scenes?

The Captian Apache I watched was a very old VHS tape which may have played a part in the overall badness of the movie, they have a copy of BMR there too, but after getting burned again with an equally lousy VHS of  "A Bullet For Sandoval", I'm dis-inclined to rent it. lol

I'm thinking in my very very bad memory that he was also (i.e. Jim Carey) in the Dead Pool.  But I may well be wrong.

Your very very bad memory serves you correct, my friend, Mr. Carey did appear in DEAD POOL!

Captain Apache, oh boy  Roll Eyes

This movie is totally incoherent. Or maybe I was totally incoherent when I watched it. I bought the vhs for less than a dollar online. It cost me more to ship it. Ha.

Well, maybe its all your negative comments, but I haven't yet had the courage to watch it.  I think I may need to get drunk first.

Just watched Capt. Apache and reviewed it for the SWWB (yes, Marco you can use it *poke* *poke*).

Cheers for that.  I have suitably borrowed it!!!

Going back to my occasional comments about Return of Sabata, it was one of the first SW's I watched after the Leone ones.  It was therefore a bit of a shock to see the comedy element, and the James Bond-esq gadgets.  Taking on Joe's point, that may well be why a film such as Captain Apache (which I will get around to watching soon) is not for the Leone lover.  Slowly but surely the comedy westerns are beginning to grow on me.  I may even enjoy the Providence film if I watch it again, who knows!!

TONIGHT....... it is time!  Captain Apache is next in line to watch.  I'm cracking open the wine as I type, and nervously reaching for the remote.

"Ahahah, they call him Captain Apache"......

I'll report back my thoughts once I've had time to ponder!
