"When you've got to shoot, shoot...don't talk!" --Tuco.  It's been mentioned already by other people, but it's always been a favorite.  Hell, I could write down the whole script before running out of favorite lines.

Speaking of that, do deleted scene lines count?  I like the one where Blondie is 'camping' with Angel Eyes and the men come out of the woodwork, Blondie counts them, and mentions something about that perfect number in relation to the bullets in his gun.   ;D

I don't believe there's any threat on Noodles' part, but he is slyly telling Bailey that he's declining the opportunity to play  the Secretary's game. My favorite bit of sarcasm is when Noodles finishes by telling Bailey he hopes the man's troubles will work themselves out. Caustic!

Heh.  They worked themselves out, alright--in the back of that 'hot rod' garbage truck.  Most stylish garbage truck I've ever seen.  O0

Thanks for the reply.  This can indeed be interpreted a number of ways; in my own mind I just like to assume that Noodles is quietly threatening Secretary Bailey/Max, and Max just misses it with his usual anger. 

I really wish there was the original 4-6 hour movie Sergio Leone intended.  I've seen pictures of deleted scenes online with Louise Fletcher, etc., but I see from reading other posts and topics here that this is probably just a wish that will never come true.   :'(

Once Upon A Time In America / "I wouldn't want to miss, Mr. Bailey"
« on: May 02, 2010, 10:57:31 AM »
First, I'd like to apologize for not posting for so long, if anyone here remembers me (a wife's surgery can set you back a few years on message boards), secondly, I just saw OUATIA a couple of years ago; I was hesitant at first, because in my own mind, I believed Sergio Leone's genre was Westerns alone--boy, was I wrong! I'm so addicted to this movie now, I watch it every night. 

Anyway, the question/discussion point I'm raising is when older Noodles is talking with Secretary Bailey about his eyes, hands, etc., being not adequate enough to handle a gun any more.  The quote that comes to mind is "and I wouldn't want to miss, Mr. Bailey!"

Now, Max just glosses over this with "cut the bull----, Noodles," and yada yada.  I'm wondering how many people here think this is genuine rage seething within Noodles at making this remark, or he actually thinks he's incapable of handling a gun at his age.  I'm on the side of the rage angle--please discuss, and it's nice to be back!  O0

What is the pixel limit on Avatars here?  I've got a good picture and can re-size it myself if someone could tell me the height/width (100/100)?

Thanks for the warning, Firecracker.  I was on Google this morning and saw that site and almost checked it out.  The last thing I need is a computer virus, 90% of my day would be shot if I had no Internet... O0

The Great Escape. I've been wanting to see it for years and it just slipped my mind every time I went into the video store, and I actually checked it out of the library (that's where I get most of my movies nowadays; it's FREE)!
Anyway, it was fantastic.  I'm sure most everyone here has seen it, so I won't go into the plot.  9/10!  8)

A Fistful of Dollars / Re: Man With No Name Talking to Nobody?
« on: April 24, 2007, 07:27:21 AM »
He probably wouldn't; it was just an impression I got upon first seeing the movie.  The Man With No Name has been warned by Sulvinito that the town is dangerous and a 'graveyard,' and he's going to face the roughest of the families, and doesn't even look at the Rojo he's speaking to.  He just seemed to have an air of confidence this way.
Of course, after many viewings, I see that Don Miguel is curious about the new man in town, and wants to see what he's up to.
--When I first saw the title to this topic, I thought it meant 'Nobody' from "My Name Is Nobody," I thought I'd missed a deleted scene from that movie!  ;D

Thanks to both of you! Actually, I don't think I ever have fast-forward(ed) through a Sergio Leone movie.  I've watched them over and over and that 'tension build-up' aspect never dies for me!
Marmota-b, yes, I understand about that.  Some English words are ridiculously spelled.  The word "Wednesday" is one of my favorite examples.  Why all the extra letters?! ;)

Yes, and that scene seems to show The Man With No Name's confidence.  He's not even looking at Don Miguel, like he's not the slightest bit worried about the possibilty of the Rojo brother shooting him.

Ha-ha, when I have the closed captions turned on for my FOD VHS tape (hope to get the DVD soon), they say "weak men weep," I wonder where they get these ideas... :-\

General Discussion / Re: Dirty Harry video game update-BAD NEWS
« on: April 22, 2007, 05:13:09 PM »
Damn.  I was hoping both  the Dirty Harry and GBU games would happen.  You're probably right though, Firecracker--The NES version of Dirty Harry years ago was certainly crap!
Don't we have enough Batman games by now?  ::)

Thank you...I had to look up the word in the dictionary to spell it myself!  ;D

Thank you, Leone Admirer! And I already made my first mistake.  ::)  It was actually For A Few Dollars More that I saw after the other two Clint Eastwood ones.  For some reason, it wasn't 're-run' on TV as much as the others.  And of course, nothing on TV compares to the uncut versions!

A Fistful of Dollars / Re:Favorite moment
« on: April 21, 2007, 03:08:23 PM »
The fav parts come out in spurts for me.

1.The opening up until the gunfight over apologising to the mule.

2.Though the massacre of the mexican soldiers is badly handled, it's always cool to see a gatling gun in a spaghetti western.

3.The shoot out in the outhouse with Clint finishing off a baddie with a machete.

4.The Barrel kill

5.The massacre of the Baxters

6. The grand finale. Which incidently is one of the best scenes Leone ever filmed.
All of those points make the movie great for me, but also the dialogue between Joe & Sulvanito (am I spelling that right?), there's some excellent humor there ("I want to find out for myself how you're going to get yourself into trouble"), it's just funny.
