#2 When Tuco and Blondie are riding in the wagon together in one part Blondie's voice is dubbed over with a different voice from his own.
That scene was not included in the initial US release. It was only included in 2006 edition. For those scenes, Clint and Eli were brought back to the dubbing studios, hence you hear the difference in voice. After all, it has been more than 40 years since the making of GBU.

Film Locations / Re: The Arch (2010)

I am planning to visit the "Arch" soon. Thanks to all the members, who provided the information regarding lodging and directions. I just have a question, can anyone provide me with a list of Do's and Dont's and certain other precautions, while I am around the "Arch"?

Thank you.

I am also 99% sure that the voice artiste who dubbed for Volonte's voice in Fistful of Dollars also did voice dubbing for Aldo Guiffre, who played the drunk Union captain.

I think it is the same voice artiste who dubbed for Groggy in FAFDM also dubbed for the hotelier with heart condition in GBU.

A Fistful of Dollars / Ramon Rojo: How do you read his reaction?
« on: April 25, 2010, 09:59:59 PM »
How do you read the reaction of Ramon Rojo towards his brother Esteban at the end of the massacre of the Baxter family? After John and Antonio are killed, Counsela Baxter comes out of the house and curses the Rojo brothers. While, Ramon is standing still, Esteban shoots Counsela, killing her instantly. Ramon looks back towards Esteban but does not say anything. I have always wondered about this scene and Ramon`s reaction. In my opinion, Ramon did not approve of Esteban`s action towards Counsela. Is it any bravery to shoot an unarmed, non-threatening person and that too a woman? Though Ramon was ruthless in his ways, in my opinion he was still "principled" to some extent and he saw the killing of unarmed Counsela Baxter as an act of cowardice from his brother Esteban.

Please share you opinion. Thank you.

"Yeah, but you don`t look like the one who will collect it. Couple of steps back." - Blondie

"You know whose son you are? You don`t , I do, everybody does......" - Tuco

"I am glad they got him. A man guilty of all those crimes." - Lady in the stagecoach

"People with ropes around their necks don`t always hang." - Angel Eyes

"One name is as good as any other. Not wise to use your own name, like you, I bet they don`t call you Angel Eyes...Sergeant Angel eyes." - Tuco

Thanks for the reply. The reason I asked was, because as per some sources Harmonica asks Snakey (Jack Elam) "Are you Frank?".

At the Cattle Corner train station, what exactly does Harmonica ask? Does he ask "Are you Frank?" or "And Frank?"? What is the exact dialogue? Thanks!

A Fistful of Dollars / Re: For those of you who have seen Yojimbo...

Clint shoots...Mifune chops the bullet into two pieces with his sword. Clint concedes defeat and they both become friends, drink beer and go home. End of story.

In the cemetery scene, when Tuco is digging up Arch Stanton's grave, Blondie walks in and throws a shovel in the pile of earth and tells Tuco to use it because it would be a lot easier. I have always wondered, why did Blondie ask Tuco to dig up Arch Stanton's grave, even though he knew that the money was buried in the grave marked "Unknown"?  I think Blondie knew that Angel Eyes was on their trail and it was only a matter of time he (Angel Eyes) would show up and thus planned out a final standoff well in advance (Unloading Tuco's gun was only part of his final standoff plan). Any other idea?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: What are they eating?

Has anyone noticed how often LVC is seen eating a meal in the two films?
I can think of 3 occasions, where LVC is seen having meal.

For A Few Dollars More:

At the 'Taberna' in Agua Caliente.

The Good The Bad and the Ugly:

1. Steven's ranch.

2. At the P-o-W camp.

A Fistful of Dollars / Re: Best FOD Character Actor[minus Clint]

How can we forget Don Miguel Rojo (Antonio Preito)? I think his was the most likable character amongst all the baddies.  

"Ah..a bullet in the back eh..and it's ended!"

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / What are they eating?

I have to admit that every time I watch the scene of Steven and Angeleyes sitting on the dinner table, makes me feel to partake in the meal. Does anyone know, what exactly is served on the table? Also, what was Tuco and Angeleyes eating at the prison camp?

Thank you CJ. It always feels good to get a reply from a learned member like you. I just wanted to make sure that I went ahead with my project the right way and not end up being labelled as "plagiarist".

Thank you. :) :)

I wish to make a film (rather write a script/screenplay) that would be my tribute to Sergio Leone and Spaghetti Westerns. I  have the concept and the characters in mind and I want to introduce Sergio Leone style of film making (extreme close ups, sudden gun shots, wide angle shots, background music etc) to the Indian audience. I even wish to "adapt" some scenes, from SL westerns, in the screenplay, for example, three men waiting for train at a lonely railway station as in OUATITW or Clint's standoff with three Mexican gunmen at Agua Caliente as in FAFDM. Now here are my questions:

1. Is it ok to adopt a director's style of film making?

2. Is it ok to shoot scenes which are in a way similar but not exactly a copy of the original?

3. Would my work be considered "an adaptation" or "an inspiration" or simply put "plagiarism"?

Thank you all for your advice.

I think Agel Eyes, for all his cleverness, ruthless and sharp mindedness, was foolish enough to confront Blondie and Tuco at the Sad Hill cemetery. He knew that these two people were already together before they were captured and incarcerated at PoW camp. Then again, when Tuco and Blondie joined forces against Angel Eyes and his gang, he should have kept a safe distance from them. What the hell was he thinking when he joined them? Plus, during the standoff, only blondie knew who he would target, as Tuco with an unloaded revolver was a no threat, but sadly for Angel Eyes, he did not know who to kill and with whom to have an alliance. He paid for this faux pas with his own life.

What do you all think?
