Sergio Leone News / Re: My name is nobody rerelease
« on: August 26, 2005, 07:21:04 AM »

The Smoker, some people were reporting several errors or typos in the English subtitles on one of the discs. Since you already have them, can you verify that?


I managed to watch two of the documentaries on the "My Name Is..." film. The problems with the UK subtitles that I noticed largely stemmed around hyphens being erroneously replaced by the "?" character (question mark). So, for example, "wide-open-spaces" might become  "wide?open?spaces". A bit off-putting, but not the end of the world.

On a related subject, it was quite strange seeing clips of both "...Nobody" and the "Dollars" films in these documetaries with German dubbing and then the English subtitles. Some of the script in German came out quite different to the English - as an example, Clint Eastwood's "my mule don't like people laughing" speech from FOD had differences, such that Clint's character was still speaking (in German) when the camera was on the Baxter boys he was about to shoot.

Also, some of the dialogue between Fonda and Hill in "..Nobody" was different - when Hill walks in on Fonda with the bomb in the basket, the German version just seems to add more dialogue.

Very strange...

The documentary on the restoration is pretty cool, shows you how mistakes were made in the past with broadcast versions (for example). One scene in particular ends up with Fonda and another character both completely out of the picture while they carry on a conversation in a room. Would like to have heard how they arrived at the conclusion that what they have is complete though, I'm not saying anything's missing, I'm just interested to understand how they know.

Just got my copy too (4-disc slip-case) - haven't seen either of these films so I have nothing to compare against, but will post some details ASAP, unless someone beats me to it.  ;)

Slip-case is quite slim, cover is in landscape as opposed to portrait.

Just noticed this on eBay - I'm assuming they're not legit (but they look intriguing, all the same). Anybody seen them before ? Claims to be a 35th Anniversary edition. 27-track OUATITW CD.

I''ve just noticed an even better set of comparison shots on the FistfulOfWesterns website - amazing comparison shots, even got the location of the waystation (which must have been no mean feat). The exact link for the page is below
http://website.lineone.net/~braithwaitej/mainsite/overview/monval/monval2.htm or head off to http://www.fistfulofwesterns.com/.

Ramon, sorry I didn''t reply to this earlier, but no, I didn''t find the hanging arch - in fact, I didn''t realise that was shot in the US. If I had known, I would have gone looking for it..... ???

Lastly, arriving at the rest stop, OK, I didn't *exactly* get this one ;) but you can see some of the Buttes are there....



I think my viewpoint was through "The Window" (??) - the very small pointy feature and the four pinnacles to it's right appear in Sergio's shot above (from a different angle).



That's it, enjoy !!

 ;D

Now we move to "John Fords Point" (named of course after the movie director).



My own shot shows a friendly Native American who poses for the tour buses at this point. The plateau he is standing on can be seen just to the right of Claudia & Paulo's heads, directly on top of the horse. I suspect that some of the ground that appears in the movie still has literally disappeared....

The "W" shaped formation to the left here is "The Three Sisters" (not sure what the one to the right is !!).



... and my own shot....

Next, we have the carriage charging through the railway workers. To the left of the horse's ears is "The Totem Pole" and (I think) "Yei- Bi-Chei" pinnacles. "The Totem Pole" was also used by Clint Eastwood in "The Eiger Sanction".



My own shot is the taken from the other direction.

Carrying on, we are still near the beginning of the loop road, and the carriage is passing 3 Buttes which I think are called "The Mittens". There seems to be another track joining the main one on the right of the grab, but I'm not sure if that is there now.



My own shot was taken from the visitor center, just outside the entrance. You can see the roadway near the bottom of the picture.

The first one is actually taken at the entrance to the park itself. I think the carriage is moving down the entrance road  to the 17-mile loop that takes you around the valley. There is a visitor center at the top left area of this grab.

You can take your Merc or your BMW around this road if you like, or your RV, but it's better to take the Navajo guided tour. (I don't have a comparison shot for this one....)

I was lucky enough to spend part of my recent holiday in Monument Valley, and I managed to grab some shots to make comparisons against the carriage ride by Claudia and Paulo. Starts about 28m - 29m into the film, pictures (hopefully) appear below....
