I'm just curious. I wasn't sure how many of his own stunts that he did. The reason I ask is because of the scene in 'The good, the bad and the ugly', where they blow up the bridge.

Eli is face down in the dirt with his wrong end sticking up in the air.  ??? I think Clint is on the right. When the bridge blows, a bit of wood from the bridge comes flying through the scene and passes just the right of both Eli and Clint. It looks as if it is travelling at a fair rate of knots and would have done some serious damage to anyone getting in the way of it.  :o Clint is quite low but Eli was in danger, if it had been a few more feet to the left.



Not sure if this should have been in Questions and Answers.  :-[

Clint Eastwood Westerns / For a few dollars more commentary
« on: July 10, 2005, 10:46:02 PM »
I bought the film recently after having watched it numerous times on TV. I have to say that the restored DVD is fantastic. The sound level seems to vary a bit during speech but it doesn't detract from the film. Morricone's musical score is fantastic.  8)

Sir Christopher Frayling does the commentary, which I haven't listened to through the whole film but I've listened to part and picked up some great snippets of info. However, there's one comment Sir Christopher that I don't totally agree with. When indio is smoking the marijuana, Sir Chris said that the flash backs to the bedroom scene are brought on by the marijuana and that it was probably due to people not having an understanding of drugs in the early 60's.

I always thought that Indio smoked marijuana as a way of numbing out the pain of the evil things that he did. He was evil but sometimes his past came back to haunt him, if you know what I mean.

What do you think?

General Discussion / Anybody met Clint?

Has anybody here actually met the man and what were your impressions?

For myself, I live in hope. Someday, I hope to be lucky enough to be able to ask Clint to sign one of my DVD's and maybe get a picture with the great man.

If you did get the opportunity to meet Clint and get his autograph on one DVD. What one would you take along?

Decisions, decisions...  :o
