There's a interesting article on this link by Alex Cox. Pity he didn't print the photo though.

I already hate the opening segment.




"Nothing-NOT EVEN BROKE BACK MOUNTAIN -could bring the western back"




 I love the way "Brokeback mountain" is depicted as the "western that would bring back westerns". It isnt even a f***ing western!! And not a classic. It will be forgotten by this time next year.

Yeh seriously, the only reason everyone praises the movie is because it's pro-gay. I'm not anti-gay ( I'm a Liberal who believes in total equality ) but just because it's different doesn't make it a masterpiece! God!

Someday in the future, the western will return........in a whole new style ( wonder what? ).

lets not get me on the subject or THAT MOVIE
a more appropriate name would have been
Hairy back mountain
John Wayne, Ford and Leone would be turning in their graves having this disgrace classed as a western
what next a cross dressing cowboy or girl not quite sure but hey its normal, leave that sort of thing to Mel Brooks westerns

So anybody seen that LONESOME COWBOYS from 1969?
Which the article mentions: "In 1969, Paul Morrissey and Andy Warhol made Lonesome Cowboys, the first "mainstream" gay western."

The plot sounds interesting (taken from xploitedcinema which sells it, and has spoilers Tongue):

This experimental western from cult icon Andy Warhol concerns nine people in a ghost town looking for love. Ramona Alvarez (Viva) and her perpetually stoned nurse (Mead) run into five gay cowboys led by Louis Waldon. They all want to have sex with a handsome drifter (Tom Hompertz), except for the transvestite sheriff (Francis Francine), who can't be bothered about anything but his outfit. Ramona is raped by the cowboys then has sex with Hompertz and wants to form a suicide pact in the afterglow. Hompertz wants no part of such a pact, however, and rides off into the sunset with another man (Eric Emerson)

Will be on my to-buy list. Cool

sounds more interesting than the dreary Broke Back Mountain.

read the article, very interesting.
I would love to see the picture Cox talks about with Leone, Peckinpah and Monty Hellmen on the set of "China 9 Liberty 37". I saw "china" the other night. I have a crappy pan and scan version of it. it stars Fabio Testi as the anti-hero and Peckinpah in a small role as a "western fiction" book writer wanting to write down the exploits of Testi's character(he doesnt get far).
Overall the film was ok. pleasent time consumer. Wouldnt advise anybody to go out of there way to seek it out though.

But I am getting off topic. does anybody have the picture mentioned in the article?

!!! I think my aunt saw LONESOME COWBOYS from 1969... She actually often mentions a very strange western that she saw years ago, with gay cowboys... I think it was very "art et essais" as we say in french, and very engaged... But i'm afraid it is not so good...

Thanks Le Bon Smiley

Leone seems to be sending hateful vibes towards Peckinpah Grin

THANK YOU!  If the movie were about two heterosexuals who liked to "fish", then nobody would've went to see it, and nobody would have cared!

I assume Peck is the bearded fellow on the left?

Anyway, cool picture.  Now we have proof that they met at least once.

yes that is him. He is in costume for the film he was acting in(which he is pretty laughable in).
