General Discussion / Re: Bruce Lee a Leone fan??
« on: January 23, 2006, 08:56:40 AM »
I've since seen The Stranger & The Gunfighter with Lo Lieh and Lee Van Cleef which is daddy!  :D

Here's another - anybody else have any?

The documentary that's discussed in that article is quite cool - Westerns Italian Style! It avaliable as an extra on the Blue Underground Run Man Run DVD.

The BBFC have cut 6 seconds (a horse fall) from the Duck You Sucker! DVD.


I can't believe they've cut a horse fall when they passed this with an uncut 15 cert, in June 2003!!!  >:(

I was getting the r1 anyhow, already own two uncut r2 copies!

Did anybody notised that there is a sync problem when Blondie is walking to the center of the cemetary and then dropping the stone at the final shootout. Sound of his footsteps are little off and the score also starts little early(0,3 sec) when he drops the stone,(causing the shot lose all it's power.) :'(
Is this just on the English track or is it on the Italian too!?

It is interesting to note that none of the young actors met any of their adult counterparts.  Leone just cast it the way he wanted and then directed us appropriatly.
I did several other movies including Three O'clock high and City of hope with John Sayles.  
I'm ready to get back to business.  Thanks
Three O'Clock High?! That's the Phil "State Of Grace" Joanou flick, right? Cool! I'll have to give it a re-watch, I can't remember spotting you in it.

"Watch out he's a touch freak!"  ;D

I often spot Brian Bloom (Young Patsy) in stuff on TV he still has extraordinarily beautiful eyes.

The first time I ever saw you "all growed up" was in the UK documentary Once Upon A Time Sergio Leone. I was like "Well he looks nothing like DeNiro now!" :)

A couple of questions;

1) Was the childhood stuff shot before or after the other periods?

Someone has to ask this...
2) "What have you been doing all these years?" ;D

My thoughts are in this thread.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:GBU Special Edition DVD Review
« on: May 05, 2004, 06:59:10 AM »
I watched GBU:SE this weekend and as much as enjoyed the extra scenes the new sound effects were driving me crazy. It starts when Tuco jumps through the window at the beginning to be accompanied by what sounded like my whole front windows been smashed in! Great if I was watching a new movie but not on a 40 year one I've seen 100 of times...also the gun shots are awful - one only has to pop in the OUATITW DVD and check out the 'final' gunshot from Bronson (EVEN ON THE MONO TRACK!!!) to hear how damn cool Leone made sound effect back in '68 (and how cool they still sound turned up LOUD on modern systems!) The ones in GBU:SE sound like a generic blast that you find in every first person shoot 'em up on the PC. :(

It kind of made Clint's line about Eli, ironic...

"Every gun makes it's own tune!" well NOT ANYMORE! They all sound the same!  :-\

To be fair I don't think the problem John Kirk talks about would have occurred had this just been a DVD remaster, and not a full film (to be shown in cinemas) restoration. In fact the cut extended Tuco torture scene that was not put back into the film because the footage was too poor in comparison, well it practically looks the same on my 32" WS TV so it could have slipped back in no problems for the DVD.

Anyway! I was gonna save my grumbling for when I get the R1 with the Original ITALIAN Mono intact - when I can do a proper side-by-side.

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Kill Bill

Quentin's continued to pillage the Spaghetti Westerns to fill out his soundscape to Kill Bill...

Volume 1 used tracks from Death Rides A Horse, The Grand Duel, The Long Day of Vengeance and Day Of Anger and by the looks of it here.

He's cribbed from The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, The Mercenary aka A Professional Gun and Navajo Joe for the Volume 2 soundtrack!  :D

Can't wait!  ;D

Once Upon A Time In America / Re:OUATIA filming locations

Ok, dear Garry, could you please tell me where did you take that wonderful shot???
It's not my shot but the guy who took it said this...

I actually took that photo last week. It is in Brooklyn, ie not Manhattan. The exact name of the road I can't quite remember. I tracked it down by myself, no website etc. The bridge is very distinctive - it's Manhattan Bridge. I knew where to go as you can work out the angle and obviously it has to be near the shore. I took the blue subway line from Manhattan to - I think the stop was called York Street (it's a few after Delancy St). Once out of there you walk down York street and to tell the truth, after you've walked under bridge, keep checking the roads on your right and it won't be long before you recognise the street - its only a few minutes. There's a pretty good coffee shop there now too. Incidentally there is a small park at the bottom where you can go to get a magnificent view of the the Manhattan skyline with the Brooklyn bridge spanning it - that's where all those postcard photos come from.

This link shows a map of that area...
