Off-Topic Discussion / F.W. Murnau!
« on: August 27, 2005, 04:40:58 PM »
Just watched MURNAU's FAUST (1926). Powerful beyond words! Grab a copy!

Off-Topic Discussion / Edda Dell'orso

Anybody come across this release? Worth grabbing?

Other Films / Dodge City (1939)
« on: August 08, 2005, 03:52:45 PM »

Just watched FLYNN in a humdinger old school western called DODGE CITY! Great fun. It has one of the most amazing off the wall bar-room fights I've ever seen! A sense of zaniness that CORBUCCI could only dream of (and I like Corbucci). Dodge City is great craic (as we Irish say!) ;)

Off-Topic Discussion / SUMMER READING.....
« on: August 06, 2005, 02:08:29 PM »
Couple of books I can vouche for as a summer read. Grab a copy of GOAL DUST, the excellent biog of WOODY STRODE and as a co-read  JOHN WAYNE THE POLITICS OF CELEBRITY by GARRY WILLS, SUPERB! Also am half way into; HE RAN ALL THE WAY by ROBERT NOTT, a terrific account of JOHN GARFIELDS short but electric life! But the kicker for me this year, is the release of KATE BUFORDS stunning biog of BURT LANCASTER called BURT LANCASTER; AN AMERICAN LIFE!. Ah, nothing like a cold can and a fresh page!  :)

Off-Topic Discussion / F-TROOP
« on: August 03, 2005, 05:15:20 PM »
Anybody fancy an F-TROOP re-vival?  ;)

Off-Topic Discussion / ROD STEIGER
« on: July 15, 2005, 04:40:00 PM »
Just watched a forgotten British classic starring ROD STEIGER called ACROSS THE BRIDGE (1957). This is ROD without the later over-the-top performance (s) that he became famous for! Stunning movie from a GRAHAM GREENE story. Rent it, buy it, borrow it, steal it! Once viewed.....never forgotten (imo).

Sergio Leone News / POSTER!

For any collectors of movie posters out there; A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS original is up for auction on E BAY UK. Best of luck!

Off-Topic Discussion / JAMES GARNER..........
« on: June 02, 2005, 02:31:21 PM »
The afternoon flick on Channel 4 today was the hilarious SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL GUNFIGHTER with JAMES GARNER n' CHUCK CONNERS! I swear I haven't laughed so much in years. JACK ELAM'S LEONE LOADED punch line (also the last line in the movie) is a killer. I won't spoil it if some of you haven't seen it. Great craic. If you can rent a copy you won't be sorry.  :)

Ennio Morricone / LUGOSI and MORRICONE!
« on: May 26, 2005, 04:40:59 PM »
This may sound daft but.....I recently bought a DVD of a movie starring BELA LUGOSI (big fan) called WHITE ZOMBIE! Now, I'm a huge MORRICONE fan (have seen him in concert twice) so no disrespect to the master intended. BUT, the opening scene contains a soundtrack, that I can only dream was written by ENNIO'S grandfather, cause this soundtrack from this 30's movie is straight out of a MORRICONE (music wise) movie. It sounds like something from THE BIG GUNDOWN or NAVAJO JOE. Please, somebody grab a hold of this flick n' reasure me I'm not losing my mind! It's very, very strange!  :o

Sergio Leone News / BBC 2.....
« on: May 22, 2005, 06:16:42 AM »

Sergio Leone News / LEONE TV SPOT.....
« on: April 17, 2005, 10:36:34 AM »

Other Films / Seminole (1953)
« on: April 14, 2005, 09:41:40 AM »
This is by no means a classic but made for  interesting viewing mainly for it's cast etc. Channel 5 showed today BUDD BOETTICHER'S 1953 western/cavalry flic SEMINOLE. Apart from BUDD at the helm it starred ROCK HUDSON, ANTHONY QUINN, LEE MARVIN, RICHARD CARLSON. Again, no classic, but a small humdinger!

Off-Topic Discussion / U.K. NEWSPAPER
« on: April 10, 2005, 03:53:26 AM »
Anybody in UK should run and get a copy of today's INDEPENDANT ON SUNDAY (10.4.05). Excellent article about Frayling, Sergio etc called CLINT AND ME. It also contains a photo I've never seen before with the cast and Sergio in a group shot on the set of OUATITW. Perfect read with coffee n' toast!
