I don't think anyone knew who he was in 1965. Who would remember the second baddie to the left who never spoke in High Noon?


Leone did.

And I highly doubt many can forget a face such as his regardless of how small his role was.

He had larger roles than that between High Noon and FAFDM.

I have seen him in several western (most recent a kiddie western titled "Gypsy Colt") and yes he does have bigger roles but never becomes anything more than a villain's lackie that gets ofted rather quickly.

I believe LVC was on the verge of quitting acting before he got the call to do FAFDM. He was unactive for atleast two years (I think he only had bit parts on TV) and suffered a serious leg injury of some sort. FAFDM made his career, there's really no doubt about it.

Thank god he got the call for the film! The rest is history.

I would agree that Indio did steal the show from LVC and CL, but I also thought that this was the case with FOD where "everyone talks about Ramon", where I found that GMVs performance an character was way above everyone elses in that film. Just a personal thought.

I think there are 5 great performances (we don't want to leave out Pistilli and Kinski, uh? (Actually, if somebody steals the show, that is Kinski, who built a world career with just those few seconds: and rightly so). The fact is I couldn't imagine one of these five being substituted by somebody else, not even Fonda for LVC or Wallach (too old for the part, anyway) for Volontč. Coburn for Eastwood? Maybe, but only if he had been in FOD too. Mac Queen too clean looking and Bronson not quite gringo enough.
We could argue that Indio is stealing the show because he is the most complex character. But without less defined characters like Il Monco andn (partially) the Colonel the movie couldn't have been made and\or be that successful. Eastwood's character was the main reason people went to see the movie and still watch it today: we don't want him to be complicated or inner-tortured: we want him to be efficient and badass. Anybody better than Eastwood at that in the history of movies?

Probably not. Grin You're right about Pistilli and Kinski, too. Groggy is a great, stylish character.

And don't forget Mario Brega  Grin El Nino is a very good henchman.

What about the Indio-Nino relationship? Nino takes care of him like a beast of its kid... what's between this two?

I wanted to mention him, too, but then felt I don't know what to say about him, except my feeling he's also important. Grin
