This may have been discussed at some time in the past, on this board. But are there any records as to what the box office draws were, when FFD, FDM, and GBU were originally released back in the late 1960's?

It would also be interesting to know what sort of revenues were accumulated during the re-releases as well, of these films, in the early 1970's, after Clint Eastwood had really made it big in Hollywood.

(Does anyone in my age bracket - I'm now in my mid 50's 8)), remember attending triple features of all three movies? I certainly did, in Hollywood, with my college buddies).

Hi Bob

I've never been to a triple feature of the films, but after the success of GBU here in England, there were many showings of a double feature of FOD and FDM.  I hadn't even heard of those two when GBU came out!  From what I remember, they seemed rather short, about an hour and half each, which we now know is because of so many cuts.  It would be rather a feat to sit through the three films in their entirety :)

Jack.

Don't mean to 'break Jack's heart' (get it? ;D). But I hung out with three buddies in high school / freshman year college, and we could not get enough pinball and Clint Eastwood. We must have seen the three movies together, at least three times.

Sure, it made for a long Saturday afternoon. But is was a gas, sitting through nearly 8 hours of unedited Leone classics.

Sounds like a great time.

Except I would substitute Pool for Pinball.  ;)

Interesting digression from the main topic. From money, to movies, to pinball, to pinheads, to pool.

Has to be some deep meaning there.... ;)

How it relates to spaghettis, it's anyone's guess.

Ah-eee-ah-eee-yah!
