Thanks for posting that jenkins. I hope your "Uh Huh" wasn't a smartass remark. If it was, take into consideration this was the first time I seen this, so no need to get mean.  Afro
I was just answering your question.

Considering the fact that Peckinpah shot all the time at numerous objects and people (by mistake though),
ol' beloved Serge wouldn't stand for 10 secs. Besides he was easier to hit, big wide fella, while Sam was almost slim (tenacious though).

Peckinpah grew up with pioneers in the Sierra Nevda hunting all his life. Target-practicing all week long, even on the set (with knifes). 'used it to intimidate people too. Leone was more Italian - they bark a lot (masters in that game they are), but seldom bite. Peckinpah did bite for survival, for pleasure and in the end it just became a habit. Peter Fonda wanted to show me a wall in Livingston/Montana, where Peckinpah lived along with Fonda (still there) and Warren Oates. That wall is full of holes by Sam's Colt 45 (target practicing again).  No wonder he loved Emilio Fernandez (who killed a critic over a bad review).

I disagree with that, Tucumcari. There was like ten/fifteen minutes of build-up to the beginning of "The Wild Bunch", and the whole Walk Thing before the final showdown in that movie. Roll Eyes

That's true Groggy, but there was a lot going on in Peckinpah's scene's in terms of diologue more than Leone is what I'm saying.

No it's not. There was a thread featuring Emilio Fernandez just recently.

Can't find it any longer.

All entries (but KINSKI) by MAN WITH NO DAME deleted?
What's the point in that ??
Waste of time, really.

Fernandez... really killed a man?  Shocked
Uh. That's hard. Was he in prison for this?

He played perhaps too much evil son-of-bitches...  Tongue Like Mapache and El Jefe.
