Duck, You Sucker / DYS - Film and Illustrated Lecture in Dublin
« on: October 30, 2011, 02:01:11 PM »
Irish Film Institute, Dublin 1st November 2011

"To mark the 40th anniversary of Sergio Leone’s Irish-themed epic of the Mexican Revolution, the IFI is delighted to welcome Sir Christopher Frayling, the director’s biographer and author of the first full-length study of the Italian Western, who will give an illustrated lecture on Leone’s fascinating and frequently overlooked retort to the political Westerns of the late 1960s. Using excerpts from such films as John Ford’s The Informer (1935) and The Quiet Man (1952), Frayling will show how Leone’s film can be seen as a response to the American’s romantic vision of Ireland, as well as a commentary on Mussolini’s Italy, events of the Second World War, and the political turmoil of the 1970s.

Also in attendance will be director John Boorman, who assisted Leone in finding the Wicklow location used in the film’s complex and ambiguous flashback sequences. The lecture and discussion will be followed by the first Irish screening of the restored version of A Fistful of Dynamite."

And according to
"Anyone fortunate enough to be within a day’s ride of Dublin on Tuesday, 1 November, should saddle up bright and early to catch the Irish Film Institute’s 40th anniversary presentation of Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dynamite, to be introduced by Leone biographer and Spaghetti Western top-gun, Sir Christopher Frayling. Also participating in the event will be director John Boorman, who assisted Leone in finding the locations used in the film’s Irish flashback sequences, and Ireland’s top special-effects expert, Gerry Johnston, who worked on the action scenes shot in Toner’s pub in Dublin’s Baggot Street.

Frayling, whose last appearance at the IFI (introducing Once Upon a Time in the West) was the highpoint of the 2000 season, will use extracts from such films as John Ford’s The Informer (1935) and The Quiet Man (1952) to examine Leone’s response to Ford’s romantic vision of Ireland and Irish history, as well as casting an eye on the political Spaghetti Westerns of film-makers such as Damiano Damiani, Sergio Sollima, and Giulio Petroni. Also included will be rare footage of Leone directing the opening sequence of A Fistful of Dynamite. "

Yet another location I drove straight past without even realising it  ::)

Castillo de Rodaquilar - "DYS" and "FAFDM"

Bateria De San Ramon - "GBU"

I would like to just take this opportunity to send a big thank you to Regis Cluseau who has undertaken some fantastic detective work to find these locations.   O0

Couple more:

Cortijo El Sotillio - where the opening scene of "FOD" was filmed. Unfortunately the camera doesn't go in far enough.

Western Leone (entrance road alongside the A-92) - this is the location of Sweetwater ranch, from "OUTITW". - this is taken from the A-92, you can actually see the entrance to Western Leone and Sweetwater in the background.

Mini Hollywood (entrance only I'm afraid). This area of Almeria is just like one great big Leone movie. - "FAFDM", "GBU"

Almeria Station - "DYS"

Guadix Cathedral - "DYS"

Thought this might be useful to share maybe?

First off, Los Albaricoques: - Duel ring from "FFDM" - Agua Caliente entrance ("FFDM") - "Adios Amigo" ("FOD"), various bits of "FFDM"

Estacion de La Calahorra (Flagstone set remains - "OUTITW") - the station itself

I'm sure we could have some fun with this - I have to bail now, but will add more later...

Love to find out more on the book too!  O0

There's a few pictures I've never seen before on this page:, worth checking out.

Amazing stuff, thanks a lot for sharing! O0 O0 O0

Can you tell us what the file types are?

EDIT: Right, it's a bit complicated. The rar file has two files in it, a .dlc (download container) and a .nfo (Info). You can read the .nfo file with Notepad, its just plain ASCII, and it has the instructions. You need to install something called JDownload, it's a Java download tool - it will use the .dlc file to go and find all the bits of the DVD (78 different parts) on Rapidshare. Unfortunately, it seems all 78 parts are "offline" or "Unavailable", which makes me think they may have expired. So, this may be a fruitless exercise.
