not sure.

The band at the Betterville prison camp scene was composed of local professional musicians (none were actors or extras from the army). There were two harmonica players - Domingo Contreras from Salas de los Infantes (shown here) and . . . I need to check the name when I get back from work. Domingo played the harmonica at the recent 40th anniversary of the filming of the GBU in Salas - a very nice man. In fact, all the locals participating in the celebration were very friendly.

  The one musician who always stick with me after watching GBU is the one who does start crying while playing.  He had a face that fit in so perfectly.  I've heard people say," Leone didn't cast people, he cast faces."

It's so true. The faces in Leone's pictures seem to fit the atmosphere, I guess that's why he loved close-ups!   Grin

I'm sure you all know the story about when he cast Lee van Cleef, but I'll tell it anyway.

Van Cleef was almost broke and had begun to paint to make a living. When Leone called him for the interview he jumped on it. He arrived at the hotel to meet Leone and as soon as Leone saw him he said, "That's the guy, that's the guy I want to play Colonel Mortimer. Don't let him speak, just pay him the money and sign the deal. Just don't let him speak lest his voice is bad"

(I added the lest in for fun, I think that's the first time I've used that word Grin)

I wonder what it was that LVC had started to paint: walls or canvas?

most wish to think canvas. apparently there is a rumor going around that he was a gifted painter (Frayling has said it in the SE of FAFDM) but I have another source that claims he became a house painter to bring in some money.

Agree...it is nice to have a connection with the past, whether they are old school friends, actors etc.. The older one gets the more of a need for these connections. I always wondered why. Huh

Well,I guess probably because most people remember only the good things from the past,like good movies or friends from the school...I'm no exception either

I can't relate being that I'm only 15, but I understand what it must be like.
