Ennio Morricone / Re: LUGOSI and MORRICONE!
« on: May 27, 2005, 09:58:08 AM »
it 's not daft.

The main title to WHITE ZOMBIE was reworked by Morricone for use in EXORCIST 2.

Whether this was an "hommage", unintentional, or heaven forbid an outright swipe, I don't know.

I brought this up on the Morricone board some yrs back-and the subject was roundly and completely IGNORED.

Many thanks for that info, visitor. Had no idea of the WHITE ZOMBIE/EXORCIST 2 connection. Am going to watch n' listen again. WHITE ZOMBIE is a cracking (and dare I say crackling) piece of soundtrack. Couldn't believe it when I first heard it and had to play it again with my eyes closed. Could have bin' a MORRICONE western theme.

The movie, I saw on it's first release. Pretty poor. BUT, just bought the original poster under it's real name A TOWN CALLED B******D, on ebay for £1.00! Crap movie.....great poster!

Ennio Morricone / LUGOSI and MORRICONE!
« on: May 26, 2005, 04:40:59 PM »
This may sound daft but.....I recently bought a DVD of a movie starring BELA LUGOSI (big fan) called WHITE ZOMBIE! Now, I'm a huge MORRICONE fan (have seen him in concert twice) so no disrespect to the master intended. BUT, the opening scene contains a soundtrack, that I can only dream was written by ENNIO'S grandfather, cause this soundtrack from this 30's movie is straight out of a MORRICONE (music wise) movie. It sounds like something from THE BIG GUNDOWN or NAVAJO JOE. Please, somebody grab a hold of this flick n' reasure me I'm not losing my mind! It's very, very strange!  :o

A Fistful of Dollars / Re: Who to play the Man with no Name

MAN WITH NO NAME? It would have to be CHRISTOPHER JONES! (RYAN'S DAUGHTER etc.) Quirky, lined face, thin and dangerous!  ;)

Sorry I haven't time to write a full review but.....anybody into FILM NOIR has to catch up with a movie called STRANGER ON THE THIRD FLOOR. It co-stars PETER LORRE in what must be his most sinister performance ever (after M). I've read, that this movie is the one that kick-started Noir off? (Maybe?) All I know is, when I saw it recently (BBC2  noir season) it blew my socks off. It contains a dream sequence that defies logic (in a positive sense). A class act that begs a DVD release! Check this one out, folks, you won't be disappointed!  ;)

I'm thinking in my very very bad memory that he was also (i.e. Jim Carey) in the Dead Pool.  But I may well be wrong.
Your very very bad memory serves you correct, my friend, Mr. Carey did appear in DEAD POOL!

Does Sir Chris really not know where New Mexico is?
His geography may be dodgy but there is no question of his commitment and passion in regards a certain western genre. Hell, we all make mistakes! An ass? Surely not, sir!

Cheers, to St. George!  ;)

Forgot to mention in above. A must read in regards to FORD, WAYNE and the entire FORD COMPANY is an incredibly detailed book by one who was there, HARRY CAREY JR.
A short review I came across say's more than I ever could about this western movie fan's must have. (below)
Company Of Heroes is the story of the making of this film (3 Godfathers), as well as the eight subsequent Ford classics. In it, Harry Carey, Jr. casts a remarkably observant eye on the process of filming Westerns by one of the true masters of the form. From She Wore A Yellow Ribbon and Wagon Master to The Searchers and Cheyenne Autumn, he shows the care, tedium, challenge, and exhilaration of movie-making at its highest level.
Ah, perfect summer's day read. Enjoy!   ;)
