but I read that Leone insisted they got the duster off Mulloch before they drove him to hospital!
not sure about that one, but it wouldn't surprise me either!
This episode is definetely true as it was also confirmed by Claudio Mancini (executive producer of OUTITW and Bronson's hanged brother).
See Mancini's interview at 19.39 minutes. It's in italian, but he confirms that they were all living in a five story building in Guadix during the shooting and that poor Al plunged to his death from the fifth floor; he apparently was the first one to to reach the body and while he was wetting his lips, he heard Sergio's voice behind him saying "Claudio, get the duster! We need it!".
Mancini also states that while shooting, he realized there was something wrong with Al Mulloch as he wasn't eating anymore and he was quite strange..

trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders?

Yeah, that's a famous one :)
I think Leone said (may be in Simsolo's book?) that he needed "a close up". Or maybe I created myself this memory by noticing the missing close up everytime I watch the movie...

yeah, I definitely remember Frayling saying (i think in the dvd commentary) that Leone was upset cuz he needed one more close-up of Mulloch

I recently re-watched on Hulu the Bob Hope laugh-fest Call Me Bwana. Al played Henchman #2 in that.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Smoke Tuco, so you can't bullshit!

Al Mulock's (or Mulloch's) first Western role (though uncredited) was in Raoul Walsh's The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw; an unambitious US-UK co-production, starring Kenneth More and Jayne Mansfield. He played one of the henchmen, he can be seen only from the back and in semi-profile, and of course out of focus, if I remember correctly. The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw just happens to be the first Western shot in Spain. ;)

No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.
