I'd read somehwere that Manis the ape is dead and that there were actually two Clydes, one for each movie.

I think they meant the video game, too, since I'd heard that Clint was going to provide the voice.  IMDB.com didn't have a new DH movie listed the last time I looked.

Is it true that a different orangutan played Clyde in this one?  I saw on the internet that Clyde had passed away some time ago.

I read on NewsMax.com that Clint's newest movie is another chapter in the "Dirty Harry" saga.  I hadn't heard that anywhere else, so I don't know how accurate it is.

I saw an edition some years ago that had Clint resting his foot on the cannon on the cover.

I have a copy of the first one, and had a copy of the second one many moons ago.

General Discussion / Has Clint Eastwood Ever Posted Here?

I'm new here, so bear with me.

Has Clint Eastwood ever posted on this site?  It would be great if he did, just to offer some insight into some of his work.

It looks like a variation of a Sharps.  The Sharps was used quite a bit in the Civil War, so it's possible.  I went to the museum at Gettysburg a couple of years ago and saw just about every variation of every weapon used in GBU, so just about everybody's right to a degree.

Now that you mention it, I did think that Ramon's machine gun wasn't legit when I first saw it.

I read a few of the other "Dollar" westerns in my youth, and didn't Colonel Mortimer and Tuco make return appearances in one or two?  I'm thinking they did.

I know a lot about guns, I own guns and shoot guns. My whole family loves guns, but I just have never seen Clint's rifle at the end of The Good, Bad and the Ugly! It does not have a long cartridge tube under the barrel. It can't be a shotgun, because shotguns don't fire that very far. So I don't know what it is, help me out anyone?

It's a Henry repeater, which was introduced in the Civil War and was widely used until the Winchester repeater came out in the early 1870s.

Great thread and great pictures.

About two years ago, the National Rifle Association had a display of Hollywood weapons at its HQ in Fairfax, VA.  One gun on display was one of the .44 Colt revolvers Clint used in "The Outlaw Josey Wales" and its rubber prop counterpart.

Anytime Clint, or any other movie hero, drops his gun, he is most likely dropping a rubber copy to keep the real one from getting damaged.

If the drifter is a ghost, then some major poetic license was used to make the story more interesting.

I'll look in those places.  You all have been most helpful.

About 20+ years ago, I bought a copy of the paperback of "A Fistful of Dollars" overseas.  It was a British printing and was never in print in the US.  If anyone knows where I can get a copy, or has a copy, contact me and let me know.  I have PB's of the other two films in the trilogy.

Thanks, KC.  I checked that thread and there are some interesting theories about our favorite bounty hunter/drifter.  You were most helpful to this newbie.

She could have missed, but I thought I saw the bullet hit the water where his chest was.  Of course, it could have been a hallucination brought on by my believing that the drifter was a ghost.

Blondy and Manco could be the same person.  Both are bounty hunters and both carry a Henry repeater rifle, which was introduced and widely used in the Civil War.

Joe didn't seem to have a vocation, he was just a drifter who wandered into a money-making situation.

I'm convinced that he was the ghost of Jim Duncan.  His reaction to the whip, his flashback to the murder of Duncan, and the scene where Callie shoots at him in the bathtub convinced me that he was a ghost.

In the scene where Callie Travers shoots at him, one bullet hits right where his chest was in the water.  Even if he had ducked completely under, the tub was shallow enough to allow the bullet to hit him and do some major damage.

Just an observation.

Is it possible that the Man With No Name may have actually been three different men?
