For a Few Dollars More / Questions that scream out for an answer
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:39:10 PM »
Some things that need answering...

Ok.. the scene with the bank. You had the bad guys and the good guys counting along  before the big boom. Just wondering a couple things.

a) how did everyone know when to start counting?
b) how did thye know to even count in the first place?

Also, about the so-called partnership between Clint and Van Cleef. How did Van Cleef know to go the oposite direction that he told Clint to take Indio? Lucky guess if you aske me. And since he was double crossed, why not get even with him, hmm?

Yes these are indeed questions that scream out for an answer.  :D

General Discussion / What is your favorite Film?

I had to leave out GBU and Once Upon..West to keep it interesting!  :o

General Discussion / What would have been his next film?
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:27:15 PM »
Was there another film Leone was thinking about directing after Once Upon A Time In America?

Once Upon A Time In America / Why the wait?
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:25:41 PM »
Ok so does anyone know the reason Leone waited so long to make this film? Were talking over 10 years, no?

For a Few Dollars More / Boy? How old is he?
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:23:09 PM »
Throughout the film, Lee Van Cleef constantly calls Clint 'Boy'. Clint is like 35 in this film. How old is Van Cleef supposed to be? Hardly a boy, no? But then again, I would hardly call Clint a 'Blondie' in GBU. His hair is darker than most but I guess compared to the other Italian actors at the time, he was a blondie  ;D

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Tuco can't take a joke
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:20:02 PM »
Anyone else feel that Tuco went a bit too far to seek revenge against Blondie? I mean, Blondie split the reward money with him and only left him 70 miles in the desert and left it at that. Tuco returns and attempts to kill Blondie several times. What's that all about. Blondie never truely tried to kill Tuco. Had he tried, Tuco would be six feet under and that's no joke. Just things to ponder...hmmmmm  ::)

Once Upon A Time In The West / Final Duel Scene
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:16:05 PM »
Just something I noticed when I saw this film the other night. During the final duel scene between Frank and Harmonica, I noticed that the wide shot was set up to make the men look the same height. It is clear that Frank is  much taller than Harmonica, but Leone angled it slightly to possible hide it, I guess.  You'll see that the ground slants way down from Harmonica to Frank. Anyone else ever notice this? No biggy - just things that make you go hmmm.

Duck, You Sucker / Thoughts on this film
« on: November 11, 2002, 07:22:28 PM »
I'll admit, I've never seen this movie in its entirety. The parts I did see were good but I'm not sure if I'd place it in the same ranks as the "Dollars" triology. It's  a very different kind of film. Opinions?

Once Upon A Time In The West / The role of Harmonica
« on: November 11, 2002, 07:20:36 PM »
Since this is a brand new board, I figured I'd start some posts.

It's been written that the role of Harmonica was originally for Clint Eastwood.  Though this film is perfect as is, the idea of Eastwood in this role has always intrigued me, offering more insight into the past of The Man With No Name. ANyone have any thoughts on this?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Box office dollars
« on: November 11, 2002, 07:18:19 PM »
Since this is a brand new board, I figured I'd start some posts.

Does anyone know how much money this film made at the box office?
