Jason Robards is very suited as Cheyenne - have any of you thought of a slight resemblance with the Sergio image on top of this site?The beard, the look in his eyes...?

And.. I think that the remake should feature a sole revenging  angel immigrated from Scotland - Bagpipe  :D

  If we're going to be debating the topic of alterante casts, please use the thread already in existances.  (Sorry to sound like a pompous, self-promoting @$$hole, but . . .)

But anyway, one more while we're here: Stephen McHattie as Harmonica.  ;D

Well, then who's going to clean out the horse stables?  ;)  Since he did justice to a fine Chicago homeboy in St. Valentines, we'll give him a pass I guess.  I'm feeling charitable today.


And what if your hand should shake a little?  And that Gringo so fast on the draw.

Just to mention it: I think Jason Robards has the most impressing appearance in this movie (after Caudia Cardinale...she's just georgeous and impressing!). But the more I think about this Movie (which I've seen about 40 times or more) every main-actor is so perfectly inscened...I just love this movie. It's a milestone never to be reached again. I mean: whoaa, i just love it! :D Sergio forever!

Sorry General but what we know about Cheyenne ?:


 His mother was a prostitute but nobody could say a mexican one or a blonde and his father an unknown customer.
Why not a Yankee with Irish,English,Nordisc  blood, who knows ?

Cheyennes is perhaps his name because his mother was also Indian or only a nickname because he is wild and brave and cruel also ?

So using Jason (who is perfect IMO) as Cheyenne is not a miscasting. Using Rod Steiger as a peon is a TRUE miscasting. Because Segio said to Rod: please try to play a peon.It seems that  Sergio said to Jason: please try to play Cheyenne  

I imagine a young Cheyenne poor ,alone , fighting in the street with  olvidados/desperados mexican kids and building his mixed gang.
Obviously a mex-look gang

OK he uses a mexican saddle but his suits are typically US,  absolutely different than Tuco who is clearly Mexican.

The second question is : Is Cheyenne character useful?

Many people answered that in front of two non-human monsters Franck and Harmonica, Cheyennes plays the human one ,like Tuco in GBU in front of Blondie and Sentenza.

I would call Jason Robards' performance good and solid but not extraordinary and maybe that's the problem because "Once upon a time in west" is an extraordinary movie and an extraordinary movie needes extraordinary characters, especially if it is 3 hours long. Only Harmonica on the one hand and Frank on the other hand..., that isn't enough!
Claudia Cardinale does her best, but her performance is only a bit extraordinary because women never had a characterization in westerns like her before. Her part is a new part, not known before but not breathtaking.
In my opinion "Once upon a time in west" needs 1 or 2 extraordinary characters more. So it isn't one of my favourite movies, because it's too long for only 2 interesting main characters.

Well, I think all the actors are a good refresh to the westerns of leone.I also like Eastwood, Wallach, or Van Cleef, but... they're not the only ones int he world you know?
I think Robards does a great job in the movie.
