Ten sticks...

What sort of energy would a stick of explosive produce.... can you compare it to something we can relate to...?

s - I will include the interview + photos/names in my GBU book when it finally comes out. I have a large stack of text plus a large stack of the page designs (i.e. photos). There are quite a lot of DVD frames and it would be nice to replace them all with higher resolution Blu-Ray framegrabs

Did the GBU book ever materialise mentioned above?

It wasn't dynamite, they were black powder sticks, the boxes are marked explosives not TNT not dynamite.

so if you drilled a hole in a rock face say 10ft deep and stuck a black powder stick in it...would it blow the lot up or would you need 10 sticks in the hole?

Seems like there is one over his right shoulder as well and another one  over to the right of the pic.,......

Suppose they could be telegraph type towers......

The gun shop scene is surely absolutely unimportant for the film's narrative (except for those of course who may say without this scene we do not know where Tuco got his gun ;) ), but it is a hell of a scene, it is Leone at his best for both directing and storytelling (within that scene). It is exactly such a scene which shows Leone's mastership, and which shows how different his films were back then.
And then again the loss of this scene would maybe damage the film's rhythm considerably.

D&d I can't believe that you would sacrifice such an essential Leone scene.

The gun shop scene is important...I dont think people watching the film would have even thought about where Tuco got his gun from...they would assume he got it from somewhere in the town...what is important is that it shows Tuco to be as good or maybe almost as good with a gun as Angel eyes and Blondie, making the final Trio scene even more exciting...I seem to remember first thinking..."this should be bloody good" when they moved into the centre circle......

I always wondered if Serio initially wanted Benny Hill to play the part of that nerdy hotel manager because they look quite alike.  Apparently Benny Hill was too busy doing Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines.

Our american and overseas brothers will be saying..Benny who?

There is a castle visible to the left of the locomotive right before Mortimer exits the train! It the La Calahorra. The tracks and set are gone; but the castle remains.

Nope...cant see a castle or a plane...a blurred bit of hillside yes, but not a castle. And no plane anywhere...there is a line like a wire from the corner of the building but thats it...any vapour trail would be above the clouds not below it.

When the passenger is speaking to Mortimer on the train, a car is visible out the window. It is the little black dot that is moving from lower right to upper left.

No!....Get away with ya! you'll be telling me you can see a car when they blow up the bridge...........tut tut.. ::) ::) ::)

Indeed it is O0

and by the time Joe had gotten from the prison to San Miguel, his horse had turned into a mule, his poncho had been cut in half, and the screen had gone from 2:35:1 to 4:3  ;D (actually, I guess the whole movie was cut to 4:3 to be shown in fullscreen on tv, eh?)

The full length poncho down to his ankles looks utterly ridiculous....wonder if it still exists somewhere.......must be worth an absolute fortu....worthless...LOL ;D ;D ;D

Also, anyone able to work out where the prison would be, if San Miguel was three days ride south, just over the border?
and another thing..

Did Joe or Blondie or Manco ever tie the holster to his leg or is it ever seen tied to his leg?...dont remember mortimer tying it when he used Manco's gun in FFOD?

According the IMDB, there is a scene during the final gunfight where you can see cars driving on a highway in the background. Has anyone else seen this?

I've heard of this before and I'm sure I searched the film and found the said cars...but now I cant see them. I thought it was when the camera has all three in shot...and clint is sat down with his back to the camera after he gives Lee his gun, and I thought it was in the background on other side of the coral where the trees are...but cant seem to see them anymore.........

no didn't notice the knot shift.
The knot shifts a few times in the scene where blondie dissolves the partnership in the desert

I seem to remember I was at school...probably 1968 ish (I would be around 15 or 16) and a whole bunch of us getting hooked on the trilogy. We used to take a small tape recorder into the cinema to record the soundtracks (still got them somewhere and we even used to pinch the posters which were put up around town advertising the films. We used to think Ennio was God and searched everywhere for the records and LP's. The first was by "the Hollywood soundmakers"...rubbish really but brilliant at the time...check it out here...

We then found the GBU soundtrack then the RCA Camdem Soundtracks for FOD/FAFDM all readily available now but like gold then. Then "The Best of Ennio Morricone". It really came into its own with the advent of Video VHS and you could then get the films from TV...brilliant.

Ah! so nostalgic....they were brilliant exciting times.....we didn't need drugs or computer games or tv's in every room to have fun....

I think we all know the sequence of events dont add up in the time line of the three films and the equipment and trains and guns sometime dont match the era, but just cause he is given a different name by different people he meets along the way doesn't mean it cant be the same person / character. Is it coincidence that he wears exactly the same clothes, fires the same gun, is a bounty killer, is the same age, trawls the same locations, smokes the same cigars, has the same morals....etc etc

Do we see the glove in the FOD and GBU, I forget, being a gunman would he not protect his right hand in any situation in any of the movies????
