Off-Topic Discussion / UNDER TEN FLAGS
« on: March 08, 2005, 04:46:45 AM »
I had a day off work and was idly watching tv when this movie came on this morning on C4. I became more interested when i saw the producer was Dino De Laurentis and then way down the cast were the names Walter Barnes and Gianmaria Volonte (that's how they spelt it). Barnes had a dark beard and had more screen time than the bespectacled Volonte's two short scenes. The director of this 1960 B/W US/ITA production was Duilio Coletti and the music was by Nino Rota.

I have seen both films although not for quite some years. 5 Man Army was shown by the BBC a couple of times around the late seventies to early eighties and M Clay i remember seeing on ITV in their 10.30 slot on a monday i think about '75 (the first Euro Western i ever saw) and as far as i am aware has never been on terrestrial TV the London area anyway. I am going to get copies of them simply as it is so long since i saw them and they are rarely seen. They aren't that good actually but 5MA does have a great score as mentioned.

Yes Belkin i have this book. I got mine when it first came out in '92 at Zwemmers (a great Arts bookshop) in the Charing Cross Rd. I would recommend it although i do remember fellow subscribers to Westerns All I'taliana fanzine finding a few errors. It has some nice european posters but B/W only. I paid forty quid for mine... Mcfarland books tend to be pricey. It has forewords by Tom Betts and Craig Ledbetter.
There is another book you may be interested in called ONCE UPON A TIME: The Films of Sergio Leone by robert C. Cumbow Published by Scarecrow Press 1987 which has a similar plain brown cover and 266 pages & B/W photos.

Could it be... DUEL AT DIABLO 1965 with James Garner, Sidney poitier and Bill Travers.
I remember this had a nice score too.

Here this is from the IMDb on its certification:

Certification: Finland:(Banned) (1972) / Sweden:(Banned) / UK:X / USA:R / Canada:18+ (Quebec) / Canada:R (Ontario)

Wow, banned in Finland & Sweden, rated "X" in the UK, its pretty tame stuff, lol.

How did you get in the theater back then Belkin?, lol.

The X certificate in the UK back then was the equivalent of the 18 we have now which came in in the 80's. So it was just for adults, a bit different than the US X cert.

Yes i love this movie. I sadly didn't see it at the cinema like you though.  It was a flop on release and bankrupted the studio...United Artists i believe.  The photography is stunning and has some great set pieces.

I was a Marvel Comics fan so my favourite artists would be: John Buscema and Barry Smith... he did the art for the first Conan issues. I also like Frank Frazzeta and i loved Tintin as well.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Same hat
« on: January 20, 2005, 03:24:35 PM »
Clint's hat has a pattern on the band and a straight brim whereas Robard's is plain and the brim is slightly turned down at the front and back. Also i just can't see any part of his costume being used by another actor. In interviews Clint says that he bought the costume in the U.S. and took it to spain.

I think i read somewhere that Clint kept his costume after making the trilogy. He used to have the poncho hanging up in the restaurant he owned in Carmel.

I remember first seeing Mercenary on BBC1 about 1979. It was the first sw shown after the Dollars trilogy. I can remember thinking GREAT! if most of the spaghetti's are as good as this...but alas that was not to be.
I think it is Corbucci's closest copy of SL. Cool anti hero, the mexican he teams up with, gundown in a circle supervised by one of the 3, and a great Morricone score.

Keith Carradine the star of the movie comes out of a Cannes hotel looks around and the camera picks out a few stars and directors amongst them Leone who is sitting chatting to a friend. And that''s it, literally 2 secs of screen time!!
