Well I'll be.. You were 17 when the post was made !!! Thanks for the apology.

By the way who's wielding the Lewis guns and in what film ?

That plot line is not anything new, one of em working with the Tans etc, but it did happen.

I've not been active for some time and was reading some old posts and it shocked me that my post resulted in the literary lashing from such an erudite gunslinger like yourself. I guess it just shows your passion for his works. I do feel quite strongly about this film however.

Maroon ? Makes it even worse cos I think you must have meant moron !  :'(

As I write this some programme on T.V is playing FAFDM main theme !

I don't see the film as being cliche ridden. Not any more so than most of the stuff out there. The Peckinpah comment was in response to you calling me  a " maroon ?"  some years ago when I expressed my thoughts on Mr Peckinpah. >:(

Im just happy I kept hold of my VHS copy that has all the missing bits. Only problem is the sound is out of sync for the first kill and opening credits. :(

It's a pretty good flick, though riddled with cliches and the occasional plot contrivance. Very commendable in its moral ambiguity.

If you want cliche ridden watch a Peckinpah film.

I actually rewatched this again last night,  and figured out that the explosion at the end was just the dynamite that Mallory had in his duster and not the nitro.

I wondered this myself Joe. The smoke, lighting and eerie wind sound kinda made me think it was the nitro however and the explosion seemed big for dynamite, but also too small for that amount of nitro.
Im gonna stick with the nitro Joe.

If not Coburn, then Richard Harris -Gritty, he can act and he's Irish so he does'nt like the Tans just like Mallory.

Nice Joe, a touch difficult.

You ever thought of replacing the Sphinx pre Oedipus era ?

Glad to meet you Carson, I'm Lincolns Grandfather.

Seems like peolple have got this ALL WRONG.

Eastwood is the better anti hero. We learn about Bronsons reasons for his "Heroism" and heap on the sympathy.
With Clint however, we know nothing. well I suppose "There was no one there to help" once, but Clint was just making that up to make Julio and Marisol feel better !

If it came down the draw, Eastwood again. Bronson took a bullet against a measily 3 sun stroked show offs. Clint comes into town after riding a Mule for hours and hey quad pine boxes needed.

Line delivery, yep Clint again. theres too many examples to list. Look at his opener in GBU.

"Yeah, but you don't look like the one who'll collect it" Which pretty much indicates a running theme of money swapping owners and such.

Bet ya can't tell I'm a Clint fan.


No, I reckon not.

The titles coined a phrase.

The main theme from the score is heard and played seemingly everywhere on T.V and copied often for snippets etc in comparison with the other movies scores, and rightfully so. I mean Ecstacy of Gold, The Trio even The Rope Bridge, Its the best score.

Did I mention it was also the best film.

On the FFOD section theres mention of the various Yojimbo inspired films that pop up know and then,
I remember watching some dodgy film with Peebles, Lambert and Leary ! called Gunmen, comparisons with GBU are pretty blatent.

I reckon Arnies Red Heat is not too far off the mark either ( may have something to do with the writers).

Anyone know of any others ?
