A lot of people thought Rod was over acting. I thought he was brilliant.

"Hey God, you sure this is Mesa Verde?"

I know. I don't get where this overacting crap comes from. If he was overacting, don't you think Sergio would have told him so? It's obvious Sergio wanted him like that. Some people say the same about Al Pacino. I read the recent book about Al Pacino. It's a assortment of interviews put together through the years all in this one book. An interesting read. He says that he hates director's that don't direct, director's that tell him to do what he wants. Pacino said he does not like that. He loves when the director takes command and directs you. If Pacino seems to be overacting in some films, which many people accuse him of, then I don't think it's his fault. I don't think he ever overacts, I think his behavior in certain roles are necessary. Take Scarface for example, the ending. His sister has just been killed, plus his so high on cocaine he probably doesn't even realize where he is at the moment. Don't you think you'd do the same thing in that position, act the way he did? He acted perfectly!

Rod Steiger did not overact in Duck, You Sucker. He was perfect.

Pacino overact? He becomes his characters. It's too bad Sergio didn't get a chance to work with Pacino, I heard Sergio say that De Niro was a real actor unlike Eastwood. A little harsh for Eastwood.

I think it was unfair of Sergio to say that about Clint. Clint and Robert are two totally different actors. Can you honestly see De Niro playing The Man With No Name? Heck no! Eastwood is extremely talented, just has a different style than De Niro, plus he can direct!

De Niro has directed some decent films, but he is no comparison to Eastwood. Eastwood was good enough to earn an oscar nom for his performance in Unforgiven, he has come a long way from Rawhide and he owes it to Sergio Leone.

And De Niro as The Man with No Name...that would be amusing. He would talk a lot and point to himself and look around and doing what he does best.

Oh he owe's a lot to Leone. He shows it with his dedication along with Don Siegel at the end of Unforgiven. De Niro has directed some good films yes, preticularly A Bronx Tale, but not a lot of people's body of work as a director has compared to Eastwood's as of late, reward wise none the less.

If Scorsese would have made a western years ago, we may have at least seen something like it. I still wish Marty would direct a western, I mean he loves the genre so much, it be only fitting. You know he'd most likely have some type of roll for Robert De Niro to play.

That's exact, that "overacting" is part of Juan's character and it's what I love on him!

And Leonardo De Caprio, his "new de niro"

Marty needs to get Leo his oscar.

Same here. It was his first film I saw.

But, still, I would give the Nr. 1 to OUATITW. Just my opinion, of course.

I absolutely agree! Afro

Once again, I absolutely agree! Afro   What a colaboration it would be in some new SL film: Leone and Pacino!!! Afro

Same here. It was his first film I saw.

But, still, I would give the Nr. 1 to OUATITW. Just my opinion, of course.

 Afro Afro Afro   Yes! I simply adore GBU too, but I would probably give the #1 to OUATIW! Probably my favorite film ever, and in my humble opinion, the best movie ever made! Afro
