The full Italian catch frase is  "Giu La Testa..Coglione!"

Which literally translates to  "Down the Head...Balls!"


Or cannon balls, or musket balls. I can picture a captain calling to his troops "Duck, you suckers, Here come the cannon balls."

now wait a second,
if the complete title in italian is "giu la testa...coglione!"
                                                                            


It's not. the title of the film is "Giu La Testa", the first three letters of a well known insult or joke in Italian.

According to Frayling of course. Somebody like Titoli can help us out here.

How anyone can refer to a pic of Bruce Campbell as gay is completely beyond my comprehension.

I think he was talking about Silenzio's annoyingly large signature photo.

No offense Silenzio. I just got Signature envy ;D

I was wondering if my new sig was obnoxious.

I'll try to . . . crop it down a little.

I'm having some troubles cropping down the image, so until I get it right, my sig goes back to the boring old "only text" version.

I don't think the large picture is obnoxious, I like it. I like the text " play so you can't bullshit. "

Was Army of Darkness filmed in almeria? That looks like the fort from "Blindman" in the back ground.

We need, I think, not only someone familiar with Italian, but with Roman slang. Titoli is our man, of course.

While we wait for him to chime in, I will offer my own speculative idea: there is a play on "head" in the expression. One assumes you are talking about that thing on top of your neck until the  word "coglione" comes along: then we suddenly understand that a lower part of the anatomy is indicated. A somewhat literal translation of the expression would be "Duck your head, scrotum!" We don't really call people scrotums in English (I guess scrotum-face is possible), but we do have the term ****** (the word "head" preceded with "dick"). Since translation is more than transliteration, a suitable English equivalent would have to be something like "Keep you head down, dick," or perhaps "Keep your dick down, ******." Some might prefer "Keep your dick down, scrotum head!" I'm sure others would like to play, so I open the matter to further contributions...

But perhaps titoli will disabuse me of my speculations.

That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
