Title: 24 hours of SW's on Encore Westerns, Thanksgiving

I was watching A Man Called Sledge and, shortly before I turned it off for being completely uninteresting, it was advertised on the bottom of the screen.

Its cut (A Man Called Sledge), that could be why,  the international print has more of Laura Antyonelli & the ending would have been more interesting if it wasn't, this is what I've heard.

Thanks for the head up..Poggle...this is the schedule:

Thursday, Nov. 23 12:00AM ET 100 Rifles   
  2:00AM ET My Name Is Nobody   
  4:00AM ET The Relentless Four   
  5:40AM ET Roy Colt And Winchester Jack 
  7:15AM ET The Longest Hunt   
  8:50AM ET Vengeance   
  10:40AM ET A Minute To Pray, A Second To Die   
  12:30PM ET Death Rides A Horse   
  2:35PM ET 100 Rifles   
  4:35PM ET The Big Gundown   
  6:15PM ET A Man Called Sledge   
  8:00PM ET My Name Is Nobody   
  10:00PM ET Death Rides A Horse   

The last time they showed  Roy Colt And Winchester Jack, it was letterboxed , in Italian w/English subs.

Death Rides A Horse, & The Big Gundown have always been shown panned & scanned.

My Name Is Nobody should be widescreen.

The others are probably panned & scanned...that's Encore's usual M.O.

What a time to NOT have television.

Ah well doesn't much matter any how. "Seen Roy colt and winchester Jack" and HATE IT. In fact I never finished it.

The only thing on that schedule I haven't seen, and I hear is excellent, is the "Relentless Four" (or am I thinking of the "Ruthless Four" that is the supposed "excellent" one?).


"100 rifles" isn't even a spaghetti western so I don't know why that is even on there.



EDIT: HOLY CRAP! I missed the "Longest Hunt" (shoot gringo shoot) when reading the schedule.

I have been dying to see that!

It was directed by Bruno Corbucci (sergio's brother) and is supposed to be really good!

CJ, ANGEL POGGLE...you must catch that. Tape it if possible!!!!!!

Yeah..it is pretty good..."Spara..Gringo..Spara."

"The Relentless Four"...not to be confused..in any way, shape, or form, with "The Ruthless Four", which is quite good........is an utterly dreadful Primo Zeglio vehicle starring Batman (Adam West). My review--> pungently yucky.
Title: Thanksgiving Day Spaghetti Festival

Thanksgiving Day Spaghetti Festival, all day on U.S. Encore Westerns cable.  Most likely not letterboxed, includes Big Gundown, Death Rides a Horse, A Minute to Pray, A second to Die...others..

As I've said before, I taped The Longest Hunt for Firecracker and watched it.

I thought it was horrible.

But I did enjoy the first 15 minutes of Vengeance immensely.
