General Discussion / Almeria reunion 2004
« on: October 21, 2003, 10:17:06 AM »
We are planning on a reunion of aficionados of the Italowestern genre  in the Almeria -San Jose area
in the period 19-26 March 2004.  There will be film location hunting and  having a  good time. It will be the 40th anniversary of the birth of the Italowestern, if we take Fistful of Dollars as the initial event in time.
We have info for hotels, cheap and expensive.
Sergio Sollima might attend as well.
Email me for more info:

General Discussion / Leone influenced your life?
« on: March 08, 2003, 03:13:31 AM »
Besides the more artistic interest that we all have in Leone´s masterpieces, did his movies and Morricone´s score somehow influence your real, everyday´s life?
Did you soak up energy from the music, spirituality, did you get psychological  help in difficult moments seeing yourself as one of his characters, did you feel stronger???
One example in my life: when I went to exams in my chemistry studies, and had to face a professor, I imagined I was Clint going to a duel, so I had to shoot well of course..
that HELPED me in real life .
What about you?

Once Upon A Time In The West / Harmonica`s scar
« on: March 07, 2003, 10:43:04 AM »
Did you notice that Harmonica has a scar on his face when he meets Jill in the farm (before they go to the well)?
Stefanelli told me: after Harmonica "manipulated" the thick chinese spy in the chinese laundry (laundry press), Leone shot a sequence where Frank and his men get Bronson, beat him up, put his face through the iron -fenced foot board of a bed, so that Bronson´s face sticks out through the iron bars, and repeatedly beat on his face. He is then released, but his face shows the signs of punching. Leone did not
include this scene in the final version, but  Bronson kept the scar in the following scenes, obviously.

Off-Topic Discussion / TV screen format uncultural shame
« on: March 02, 2003, 09:43:06 AM »
This is maybe addressed to my US friends: why, in a country
like the US, home of the temple of cinema (Hollywood),
and of the OSCAR, and of the best actors,etc.etc..... why do some
boneheads repeatedly format widescreen movies to TV
size, when everybody knows that PHOTOGRAPHY is one
essential element in the art of cinema? When you rent a tape at Blockbuster, 90% probability of reading the hated
sentence: ... has been modified to fit your TV screen
Can you guys out there give me some explanation?
Thanx and good shootin

Trivia Games / shooting speed with a Colt 45
« on: February 14, 2003, 09:24:48 AM »
the fact: an average semiauto pistol cycles in approx.
0.015 seconds (15 hundreths of a second) when in skilled hands: all you have to do is press the trigger, the next
cartridge is fed by the mechanism.

QUESTION : when you fan a single action , like the Colt 45
that Monco uses, how fast can be the next shot be fired?
In other words: what is the minimal possible  time elapsed  between two shots?(in skilled hands)

1. 0.5 seconds
2. 0.3 seconds
3. 0.2 seconds
4. 0.15 seconds  

Film Locations / travel to ALMERIA and VHS made
« on: February 08, 2003, 01:57:54 AM »
Reading Cenk Kiral´s report about his trip to the Leone
locations at and around Almeria: I did the same and was able to find all civil locations where Fist of.. and Few D...
where shot. Also some places of Sollima and Damiani
movies. The movie is VHS PAL format, amateur quality but
nicely shows what is left today of those areas and pueblos.
I also found the LEGENDARY CIRCLE where Colonel dueled
with Indio. If someone reading this wants a copy of the video, please contact me. Sergio Sollima , a friend of mine, found the movie really good, was moved, and has got a copy already. My email:
THX and good shooting
