 1. You missed out And For The Sky A Roofull Of Stars!!  :-\

 2. Didn't think Night Of The Serpents was available in English audio BA? :o

1.Yeah..It was on the list of Petroni's films that I planned to post...but it was inadverdantly erased as I tidied up the post....
It seems that my lofty opinion of "Tepepa" (#11 SW overall) isn't shared by all..that's cool...but that's what places Petroni, for me, way up there.

2. I don't know.

It seems that Petroni is the most underestimated practioner of the genre, what you think folks?

It's a good question....does Petroni belong on the same rung of the ladder as Corbucci & Sollima?
Not an extensive resume..but Sollima didn't have one, either.

Life Is Tough, Eh Providence?

Night of the Serpent


Death Rides a Horse

It's a close call...but on the strength of "Death Rides A Horse" and "Tepepa", with its great script, adult themes not totally reliant on a gunfight or some kind of action every 10 minutes, transcending the genre's too often 'cartoonish' entries rolling out of Almeria ...I wouldn't have a problem with it.

  The boardwalk_angel residence..a/k/a "The Mansion On The Hill"  8)

More of Somerville...about 4 miles outside of Boston

This is an aerial view of Boston w/ Boston harbor in the foreground..the Charles River in the background..Cambridge across the river on the right

Looking at a part of Boston called "The Back Bay" from Cambridge

  The local holy shrine  ;)

Concerts are held throughout the summer w/ the Boston Pops Orchestra

July 4, 2003

The large green open space is the Public Gardens & the Boston Common

Part of The Public Gardens..a little more up close & personal

  Public Gardens in Autumn

This is Trinity Church..built in 1876...
in Copley Square. This shot really shows what Boston's like...
there are 7, very distinct..
architectural styles,
from different periods, side by side. The art deco building next to the Romanesque church is
 the John Hancock Building..
at one time the tallest building in the city.

On our way out of the city, now..
these are some of the harbor islands..
where anyone can boat to..swim at...
or have a picnic.

The ocean waters in Massachusetts are
 prime romping grounds for whales.
On a summertime boat trip to Provincetown,
not long ago, we were greeted by
2  humpback whales. Takes your breath away!!!!!

My neck of the woods....welcome!!!!!  ;D

It's the best new Western...& I do classify it as a Western, even though it takes place in the Australian outback....that I've seen in years.

A Passage To India

Ride the High Country

Nice haul.......I'll look forward to your thoughts on "Passage To India"...I found it to be a 'good' film....not on the level of "Lawrence" , "Bridge" or "Zhivago", & better than "Ryan's Daughter".
The casting of Guinness was an interesting choice..I know you'll have an opinion on this.

As for "Ride The High Country", it's a very nice, colorful presentation...especially after watching the washed out print that TCM used to show.
Have fun... 8)

sounds like anthony hopkins

meanwhile, you can guess this. just movie-title is enough.

Correct...Anthony is...can you guess the movie? Clue--> Hopkins is playing a real character, who actually lived/is living and breathed/is breathing.

I have no idea about yours...nice sound bite.
