Other Films / Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
« on: January 20, 2008, 01:55:24 PM »
This may sound like a really stupid question but I've searched the net and cannot find the answer...... Where did the old footage that they used for this film come from?? It's either made in 1969 to look old or is indeed from the turn of the century. I'm guessing that it was made in 1969 to look old but can you enlighten me please

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: Music Score in the Grotto Scene
« on: January 15, 2008, 04:46:48 AM »
Personally I think that the music was added along with the new Tuco dub - as in, it did not appear in the original Rome premiere.

The music itself is an excellent piece that is quite moving and fits the scene that it has been copied from to great effect. I don't think however that the music fits the Grotto scene at all and I think that Eli's dubbing and the editing is dreadful. I do however still love that scene!! I watch it with the sound off to appreciate it's quality.

As for the very intro of the music I have no idea where that came from. I like it but the editing into the other piece of music sounds worse than the editing that I used to do on cassettes with my raster blaster back in the 80's....  ;D

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Music Score in the Grotto Scene
« on: January 14, 2008, 03:54:58 AM »
The scene begins with Tuco dangling a chicken as he enters the Grotto - that always makes me smile!
I cannot remember the actual name of the piece that they chose for this scene but it is the same as when Blondie is recovering in the hospital and Tuco is talking to one of the priests (when he necks the whiskey).
My question is where did the very intro come from that is played right at the beginning of the scene which badly cuts into this piece that we already know? It is only a couple of seconds long but I do not recognise it from anywhere on the official expanded score that is commerically available.

Do any of you know?

Wow! Thank you very much

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Question about Soldier's song

Scene: Confederate Soldiers have abused Maria and drop off her in the town at night.

I just wondered if the sing-a-long was actually a song that exists or was made up for the film
Do any of you know?

For a Few Dollars More / Re: Finally....

I guess you've just gotta be cool as f*ck.....
Clint even looks cool when he's getting his ass kicked!

Back to the point of the thread, I always  remembered the deranged Indio laugh and the (full) beating scene from when I first saw the film over 20 years ago. Those kind of things stay with you don't they.
When years later the 3 films came out on vhs in widescreen (mid to late 90's?) I was gutted to see these scenes cut down. I hate things being cut. Anyway by this stage I had already given a previous 'full screen' copy that was otherwise complete to a mate..........
Stupid me for thinking that the DVD wouldn't be cut..... I guess there is perhaps a genuine reason though in this case for the beating scene? Still annoying

Not much to add but that's my two pennies worth

Thanks for all your replies, I think I definitely prefer most of the other posters...

For a Few Dollars More / Original Poster
« on: December 13, 2007, 06:40:00 AM »
What was the original artwork for this film? I know that the distributors may have used different art from country to country but can someone upload some images please.
I guess I will have seen it before but I'm just curious because I am used to seeing the image that is for example on the cover of the CD.
For the other 2 films the CD's have original artwork (which I think is brilliant by the way) but the 1 used for FAFDM is a bit tacky I have always thought, like a quick job done at a later date
Anyone share the same view?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Observations
« on: December 06, 2007, 02:01:48 AM »
Did any of you ever notice the same "crowd noise" soundtrack being used in Fistful of Dollars and GBU. I'm talking about the scene in FOD when Joe has escaped from the Rojo's and they are frantically searching for him and the first Tuco hanging sequence in GBU as Blondie shoots the hats off everyone. In actual fact the piece is only really a few seconds long but put on a loop and played over and over....

This one I noticed when after reading about all of the errors in GBU on this site (cars in the background etc...) I noticed when Tuco and Blondie enter the POW camp you actually see in the background a man, presumably a Condeferate POW hanging from the gallows.

Finally the scene where Blondie hands Tuco over to the Authorities to begin their scam. Blondie flicks a match at Tuco when he is tied up on the floor cursing him and as the camera scans to Tuco you see the match apparently fall down from the ladies dress standing behind him!!
Do you know the bit I mean?

Anyway, hardly groundbraking stuff but there it is!

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly novel
« on: September 26, 2007, 01:29:00 AM »
I think I have all of the Joe Millard books. I remember that they used to be available from W H Smith here in the UK in the late 80's but I got most of mine from a second hand UK book shop in Alberfera when I was holiday there when I was 11 (with my parents!). Off the top of my head I think these are all of them:

A Dollar to Die for
Blood for a Dirty Dollar
A Coffin full of Dollars
The Million Dollar Blood hunt
The Devil's Dollar sign
The Good The Bad & The Ugly
For a Few Dollars More
A Fistful of Dollars

I remember being disappointed with the 3 novelisations of the films but did quite enjoy the rest. I think that they were good adventure stories for the age that I was at. But yeah, I agree with other people here that for GBU it padded out a few areas that were not in the film albeit that they were created for the novel.

I wonder how many books we could write to add to the collection with the word 'Dollar' in the title............

Hello everybody, I'm a Newbie here although I have been reading your posts for some months.

I have always gathered that what Blondie means is that only he knows which grave the money is in so if Tuco kills him he will always be poor - Tuco would be left only knowing that the gold was burried in Sad Hill cemetery
