Trivia Games / question for cigar joe (and others, if you want)
« on: July 05, 2004, 03:28:13 PM »
I'll shoot a western this summer with a few friends. It's gonna be called "Colt Navy 1851", and will be the story of... a colt navy. I think it is the best way to show as many "classic" scenes of a western as i can think about, and do hommages to all the kinds of westerns: spaghetti, classics, realistic, "crépusculaire" (like peckinpah), and modern.
So, I need some informations about that gun, which is almost as famous as the peacemaker, even if nobody knows it: it is one of the most used gun in westerns.
So, Cigar Joe, because your an expert in weapons, what can you say about that gun?

I need especially:

1) i've read that there is a few differents model of that gun... which model is this Denix replica (that i have): 1040/L (you can find a picture here: )?

2) if you know, which famous people had that gun? (i've read that it was the favorite weapon of Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill H.)

3) which exact number of navys were produced in London between 1851 and 1874? (i now it is about 40 000)

4) some colts navy were .36, others .44. Which ones? What about the 1140/L?

5) what was the price of a colt navy? and what could be the price of this one (pretty worked)?

6) every nice information about that gun

Other question: (pretty easy for you, i think): how many bullets can you put in a Winchester 66?

Thanks a lot!

Trivia Games / Re:what is the parts combo of tucos gun? and why?
« on: July 02, 2004, 04:03:31 PM »
Just a question... Wallach said that the parts of the gun where not written in the script... but i can't believe it: he makes it so easily! So, cigar joe, please answer: is it realistic?

great movie, much better than the firts one. I loved all the "à la leone" ideas, like the arriving of bill (shot not like the one of angel eyes, i would rather think to the one of the harmonica; and with the music from GBU).

It is so amazing how QT can surprise us, after Vol1 and its revolutionnary form, we are surprised AGAIN (more?) with the vol.2... It's just "ununderstandable".

Shorty Larsen, what did you think about this movie? i think i remember that you loved the first one...

i have recorded it when it was on tv (arte) in france, a few month ago (cut in two parts).
That are great movies! i don't love it as a leone's movie, but that's great and pretty unknow! i didn't know that De Niro and Depardieu had play together in a movie, and that De Niro had the bad role!

I would rather ask: how do the other members of the gang not know?

Clint's answer, at the begining, is so stupid!

i love cokey's song... i love this character, kind of harmonica: he plays when he would have better to talk, and when he would have better to play, he... plays.

well, sorry, i can't be agree with that: Max is tall and fit... pesci is too little... they don't have the same silhouette at all!

But you are right when you say that the last scene with pesci is strange... i think he just wants to talk with max... and i think tryed together to trap all the gang.

Duck, You Sucker / Re:Final Flashback?

I love this sequence! does anyone know WHY people from MGM have choosen a version of the film without it? I just can't understand it! That was the most moving scene of the movie (with Coburn smilling... arg! that's too much!).

i think it is one of the great ideas in this film: sergio let us know that the characters know each other. How? We don't know. Sergio doesn't know, and i think Luciano Vincenzoni doesn't know too. It is just a way to make the audience enter in the movie in an active way, and that brings also three good points:
1) it shows that behind this movie, there is a coherent (is it realy an english word?) univers, even if actually... there is nothing
2) that brings a mystery, which makes us talking and talking about it... forty years after the film.
3) there is two kinds of people... people that know each other, that are the main characters, who are the strongest, faster, that won't die before the last 5 minutes... AND people who are in the movie for 1 or 2 scenes (and die after that). In fact, that put blondie, tuco and angel ON THE TOP, in a very closed circle, in which very few people are admited... (shorty tryed... and in this movie with so much hanging scene, he's the only one to be killed like that).
