Not sure about other ebay outfits, although I assume the rules would apply anywhere else, but selling 35mm prints is illegal...

Such things apparently aren't enforced though as many celebrity photos, autographed and otherwise are plentiful on ebay.

  El Condor was on Encore Westerns last night if anybody has the channel and wants to see it.  For a pan-n-scan version, it looked pretty good. Smiley

This was on last night on Encore Westerns.
Stayed up long enough for the mexican pueblo raid with all the pretty women nude.
The print looked great! Did anybody have the chance to tape it?

I told you earlier in this thread that I'd made a DVD-R of it. Cheesy

I want this Cheesy Lee dies? Love it.

He should've died in many other movies... he was shot two times in TBG and also wounded in The Grand Duel. And maybe, he could've died in DRAH, to wash his sins off.
But he lived Cheesy

A good spaghetti-style western made by Americans. Van Cleef's plays a good role giving life to the likable character "Jaroo". Jim Brown also plays a good role, and Marianne Hill (in addition to a good acting) shows us her beautiful anatomy in a few nude scenes.  Wink  Maurice Jarre contributed a catchy score.

Obviously, the making of this movie must have cost quite a bit of money, as the fortress was specifically made for for this film, and it seems they used quite a number of extras to impersonate the Mexican army soldiers, the Apaches, etc. The fortress is the same one that was used for A reason to live, a reason to die, Conan the Barbarian, Get mean, and possibly some other movies. I think I read somewhere that (unfortunately) the whole fortress structure is nowadays in a deplorable condition. The village where the Mexican troops went for R&R also apperas in other spaghetti westerns (For a few dollars more, Death rides a horse, Tepepa, and Run Man Run come to my mind).

Not a western at the level of Leone's Sollima's or Corbucci's, but it is packed with action and adventure nevertheless. I would give it a 7 out of 10.

Not so sure about that as I think it was the same fortress used in Mann's Fall of the Roman Empire.
I could be wrong, and probably am, because I saw it some time ago but I do remember a fortress that looked just like it.

I don't know how accurate is the IMDB, but check this:

I think I have seen similar comments somewhere else.

Saw this 36 years ago on Times Square in NYC. Got a tollerably Good VHS of it on Amazon.com for about $5.

Hey, so did I. When I was too young to enjoy it.
I saw a lot of spaghetti westerns in the grindhouse in Times Square.
They'd let me and my friends in without asking for I.D. when we were under 18.
Spaghetti westerns were the whole point in going, and horror films.

Which poster is better?
The half-sheet with western art or the photographic one-sheet?
