Title: Goofs in For A Few Dollars More
Post by: Brendan on May 16, 2003, 09:25:37 PM
Over at the IMDB, it has this listed in the goofs (http://us.imdb.com/Goofs?0059578) section:

Quote
During gunfight at the climax of the movie, automobiles can be seen driving on a highway in the background.

During the opening scene when mortimer lowers the bible that he was reading in the train, in the background, you can see a fast moving vehicle driving down a dirt road.

Can anyone see these?

I checked this one... if you have the dvd go to 0:04:34, it's the scene before Mortimer lowers the bible, the other passenger is talking to him and there is a black dot -which I guess it is the car they talking about at IMDB- going from the right side of the background into the left.

(it's at the same height as the passenger's glasses, if you zoom into the corner of his glasses you will see it).

So I guess there are other reasons for the "zoom" button! ;D

I saw that black dot as well, but I also noticed something else. Just after the passenger gives the guy his ticket theres a shot of Col. Mortimer with the Bible in front of his face. If you look out the window a white object (which is line with the words The Bible) is there, it sort of looked like a van to me, but I suppose it could just be a building.

The other vehicle though that you asked me about, Xichado, I dont see. I watched the scene closely but didnt see anything. Can you get a screen cap of it and highlight it? Or can you tell me what the shot of Clint is when you see it?

I am also interested in this.  If anyone can provide some screen captures to look at it would be most appreciated.

Christopher, I actually thought the same thing as I was pressing the zoom button  ;D

Now I see two cars, or what it seems to be two cars, on that scene  :o.

I don't mind sending it to you. ;) I'll get back to you later on.

Nightwing and Meridico,

Here's the picture:

(http://home.swfla.rr.com/mattreigns/FAFDMscreencap.jpg)

The red circles mark the vehicles, or what it seems to be vehicles on the road. They move quite fast, from the left to the right of the screen, and are only on the screen for +/- 2 second.

For those of you with the dvd, you can find this scene at chapter 31, at 2:05:58.

Matt, thanks for everything  :)

Oh that, yah I saw those, I thought they were just chickens running around. I could be wrong, I'll have to take another look.

If you look over the shoulder of Blondy and Tuco in The Good the Bad and the Ugly when they blow the bridge you can see very clearly a white van driving on some hill side road in the background.

These goofs don't make it less of a movie however. :P

or do they?
