These just came out in Denmark - I bought "My name is Nobody" for next to nothing - discount release but widescreen presentation:

http://www.star-video.dk/

Click on the Nobody-film and you'll enter a site with a little trailer from the saloon. Personally Nobody is the only of these films that I can stand to watch. And still, at times it's nearly too damn hard. The mix of melancholic feelings, grandeur, and comedy... it is more pastiche than anything else.

Like that pseudo-Bond movie.. Casino Royale.. The problem with Nobody is that it still tries to maintain some corny seriousness, like when Fonda is writing his cheesy farewell note in the end. With Leone all these things are left unsaid or expressed in subtle facial movements, music or scenery.

Anyway, some scenes in Nobody makes me laugh out loud. The "take Squirrel's gun and slap him 40 times in the face" scene gets me every time. And so does the scene with the "turning slapping doll". It's pure Charlie Chaplin slapstick.
And OK, the scene with the train and the Bunch is pretty cool too.

The "Valkyrien" Wagner theme that Morricone included in his theme for the bunch remind me of "Apocalypse Now" and the Choppers. Maybe Coppola got the idea from the wild bunch in Nobody....

sorry about this long post, cheers  :o

   I got a few Morricone songs from this movie, and I like them quite a bit. More light than the Leone films, but still quite creative IMO.
   I was just wondering if anyone seen "My Name Is Nobody"? I am big Henry Fonda fan and so.....
   How was it?
   Is this out on DVD or VCR?
   blah blah blah

 Thanks so much in advance,
 -Tom

Long time ago, more in the comedy spaghetti western phase. In a different class altogether IMO. Its on Amazon:

I really like My Name Is Nobody quite a bit. It is, of course, not in the same league as Leones (other) movies, but then again, it's not the same kind of movie. It's more like a parody of the entire genre and you can find lots of connections. Especially to Leones movies and The Wild Bunch. If you've seen those you will probably end up either loving it or hating it. I'd say it has a cute, kinda dream-like story. And of course, there's the music. At first I didn't really like the main theme, but as I have gotten alot better acquainted with Morricone's music over the years I have really taken a liking to it. There are other great tracks on the soundtrack as well, especially the track called "The Wild Bunch" (aka "The Wild Horde") and "With Best Wishes". There's even a track called "Valkyries", and Morricone has indeed borrowed alot from Wagner's "Ride Of The Valkyries". ;) I think GDM just released a new version of this album this december. Check it out. http://shop.gdmmusic.com/index.php?f=scheda&s=txt&id=172

As has been said , doesn't have the qualitity feel of Leone, but is a great lighthearted feel. it has got something and is better than most other spag.westerns that i've seen.

I think only a very small sequence was shot by Leone but its mostly a Tonino Valerii film, you may want to check out his other serious SW's "Price of Power" and "Day of Anger".

At the beginning, with the barber, it makes Leone no, with the sound... And the end has been shot by Leone himself!!! ;)

There are some good scenes but the entire movie doesn't really work for me.

It's not nearly as bad as people make it out to be... it's a very good movie... you heard me correct... very good... not up with anything else leone did... but definitly up there with the best of the rest of the spags.

I totally agree with you. It's just different. A totally different style and it has a totally different goal. I mean, you can't compare a submarine and an airplane, right?

i agree: it''s a good movie, not great but better than many other spag westerns. Morricone did a great job, and fonda is wonderful.
But there are too many ridiculous thing, that could recall the "trinita" kind of western.

mmm, sorry guys, it looks nice and its quite good fun, but any message its trying to convey is a bit confused and 2 be honest i think its a bit stupid really. I dont like what Morricone did with the parodies of his own scores, though the main theme is quite catchy
