Beginning Sept. 10.........Independent Film Channel will be showing:

"Spaghetti West"........an original documentary featuring interviews with Clint Eastwood, Sergio Sollima, Ennio Morricone, and others.

and.........on successive Saturdays:

GBU...........Sept. 10

For a Few Dollars More"......Sept. 17

and what I think is very compelling & most welcome...on Sept. 24...a double feature of:
The Big Gundown......& The Great Silence

Boardwalk -you beat me to this.  I just saw it listed in my newspaper, turned on the cable to get description.  I'll be taping it tonight.  I wonder if Big Gundown will be letterboxed on the 24th - I have the other three on DVD.

I'd like to mention...........if you haven't seen "The Great Silence"......you might consider skipping the documentary until you have. A bit too much info there.
 Tape it if you can........if you're not setup for that.......then I don't know what to tell you..as "Silence" is the last film to be shown...but a *SPOILER* warning is definitely called for.

It means that the documentary...in its excerpt on "The Great Silence"........reveals a very important plot point..in this case...far too much about the ending.

I had thought about tuning in to watch the documentary, but I'm glad I didn't since they give a little too much away of The Great Silence.

I wonder if Big Gundown will be letterboxed on the 24th - I have the other three on DVD.
I would imagine so, IFC usually shows movies in their correct form.

I wish they didn't have The Great Silence on so late Sept. 24. I just looked it up. 12:45 a.m eastern time! Shocked

When I first saw the ad for "The Spaghetti West," I was hoping they'd show more movies than what they are (and at better times of the evening than what they are Wink).

Did you see the great one hour documentary "Spaghetti West" on IFC? If not, you can still catch on 17th. It contains rare footage of behind the scenes and interviews with Corbucci, Solima, Damiani, Thomas Milian, Sergio Donati, Morricone, Eastwood and more! You'll be sorry if you miss it!!

I merged this topic with the one Sanjuro started. I guess it is a "News" item.

For some reason, since switching to sattelite, our VCR's don't work anymore. I don't have a clue why, or if there's anything we can do to get them to work. There's one TV at home with the VCR built into it that works, but it doesn't have a timer.

The IFC showing of The Big Gundown is listed as 1:31............for those in the know...does that sound like the uncut version?

EDIT: Apparently not...that would be the abridged English version...if my research is correct....about 15 minutes are cut from the original.
Now I have to decide whether I want to watch this...or not...or hold out for Franco Cleef's version or whatever.
