The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: GBU SEEMS TO BE THE BEST!
« on: February 28, 2006, 10:54:48 AM »
GBU is my favourite film, but I think OUATITW is a better film (from a critical perspective - then again who is to say popular opinion doesn't make a film great)

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Duster Jackets

Distressing the dusters is never a problem is simply the style that is so elusive these days.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Duster Jackets

It seems impossible to get a decent Spaghetti Western duster these days.

having looked at the dusters in both this film and GBU I have noticed:

1) Most of the dusters appear to have lapels
2) I see no codorouy collars

The only dusters I see today online for purchase are non-lapelled versions, either one fabric in linnen color only or  in the brown hues but with cororouy collars (eg - the wah maker offering).

Where can we get dusters like the ones in Leone's films and where did he get his!

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: "Keep your loving brother happy"
« on: February 25, 2006, 09:14:50 AM »
This seems to be something Leone likes doing - showing the bad guys laughing and enjoying themselves in other people's suffering:

Fistfull of Dollars - Ramone and the gang laughing in the firelight at the burning of the Baxter's House

Few Dollars More - Indion and gang Lauging when Mrtimer and Manco are getting beaten up

And Once Upon a Time in the West

I think it really makes the audience hate the bad guys all the more as it makes them seem really sadistic so when they do get brutally killed by the good guys in the inevitable gun battle you dont sympathise with them.

Other Films / Re: Death Rides a Horse aka Da uomo a uomo (1967)

I bought this from amazon.co.uk and have to say I LOVE this film -  they turn a classic cliche Western story on its head.

I got an email from this guy as well - he said for some reason he couldn't register on the board here.

I dont know if its possible that it can authenticated in some way? Maybe the money could be held in escrow or something while the buyer authenticates it?  I have no idea what the usual procedure is but I would not buy unless I knew and trusted the guy, or had a definite confirmation on authenticity and/or had the transaction done through an objective third party.

Well i must say I am totally gutted. The 2 disc Western Graffitti arrived today and not a single song on it was from Red Dead Revolver and most of the music on it that makes it a worthswhile CD I already have. :(

So anyone looking for the Red Dead Revolver music do not buy this CD set

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / GBU soundtrack inconsistncy?
« on: January 29, 2006, 07:43:28 AM »
Is it just me or does the soundtrack on the CD differ from that in the film? The bit I noticed was the final showdown - on screen there is a bit where the music stops for a few seconds and the tinkly bells ease you softly back into it again, right in the middle of the build up to the gunfire. However on the soundtrack CD this bit isn't present and it seems to be missing a final chord as well. Am I mad or has anyone else noticed this?

Whats the best way to learn how to do it? Couldnt find any online resources on how to learn it. Basically up to the kind of level you see Clint do when putting his gun in its holster?

General Discussion / The costumes

How accurate to the time periods the films were set in were all the costumes used in Leone's spaghetti westerns (in general) and where did he get them all from?

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Best hat in a Western
« on: January 17, 2006, 06:18:45 PM »
I think a lot with how good a hat looks also depends on the shape of your face, your height, your individual facial idiosynchratic features, etc. So what may look a good hat on Clint may not look so good on me necessarily and vice versa.

That said I see no harm in trying the same type of hat as the Pale Rider hat or the Dollars Trilogy hat because they do look so darn cool
