The book is SENSATIONAL!  JUST GREAT. 1A quality, awesome images, a dream.

At first I thought about taking some pictures and posting them here,
but that is nonsense. If you're a Leone fan and care for film books in any way,
you have to get it. Plain and simple. Support Peter here as well of course,
I must say at first I was afraid it would cost more than 80, 100 or even more,
so the modest price is certainly no reason not to buy it. (go eat less expensive junk food Smiley).

In case anybody here is from Germany / Austria or Switzerland...

A friend of mine contributed to a new Eastwood book, packed with images. (Volume 1, #2 will follow)
They will present the book followed by a screening of FOD in Tutzing, south of Munich.
In attendance of Clint's co-star Marianne Koch! Free entry as well!
I might throw in a 35mm trailer reel of the Leone westerns as opnener for the program.

Thanks to the TWILIGHT TIME Blu-ray I re-discovered THUNDERBOLT which I hadn't seen for 30 years.
Liked it as much as back then... Too bad Clint did not make (for him) more unusual 70s 'New Hollywood' films.
Since the German lc's are quite scarce, I'll post my first release set here of course :)

It is Sam's 90th birthday today. Considering that he was unofficially blacklisted for over seven years, he only spent 15 years making feature films. What a remarkable impact his rather short career had and still has in film making. Of the 14 films that he made at least four to eight turned out to become classic masterpieces (depends on who you ask). The world will always remember his art. This year sees at least three new books on him published, a retrospective at Locarno Film Festival and my own PASSION & POETRY is on TV in France and Japan (released also on Blu-ray in Japan!), I also just helped co-producing the upcoming Kino Lorber US Blu-ray for CONVOY and my uncut interview with Senta Berger (PASSION & POETRY - SENTA & SAM) will also be released later this year. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!

Dear friends and fellow film fans,

I just started a crowdfunding project to help restore and release my 1999 feature film PENDECHOS! (former title: ROADRUNNER).
This gangster - roadmovie was shot on Super-16mm and was the very first project I ever did, therefore it is very dear to my heart. It was inspired by a meeting with US filmmaker Robert Rodriguez who had told me how he had produced his EL MARIACHI for some $7,000.-. It was quite an adventure and everything I learned I used shortly afterwards for my Sam Peckinpah-film PASSION & POETRY – THE BALLAD OF SAM PECKINPAH.

Like EL MARIACHI I shot PENDECHOS! on film and edited on video, therefore I have to go back and transfer the complete 6 hour film negative for a new cut (HD quality). I will use the opportunity to use whatvever I have learned since then and will give the film a new narrative, new sound, a new look etc. etc.
But this is way beyond my possibilities regarding financing, hence this crowdfunding project.
I appreciate any kind of help – promotion, word-of-mouth propaganda, links …

But of course you can help best this project if you support us, for instance by ‘purchasing’ a DVD/Blu-ray upfront! Just visit the crowdfunding website (there’s also a short video with film scenes and behind the scenes footage), any kind of interest from your side is much appreciated. AT THE TOP YOU’LL FIND A BUTTON FOR THE ENGLISH TEXT VERSION:

I don't know the details either yet, I'm always a bit behind. Just watched TRUE GRIT (Coen) this summer for the first time, if you know what I mean regarding 'being behind'.

But it's gonna be fantastic, that's for sure. We have so many great photos...
Maybe some fellow collector's here will contribute some rare images as well?

11
Sure :)
But that loud machine is not playing much here. Maybe once every other two years...

Because I have my little studio here, I can play a lot: 8mm, Super-8, VHS, MiniDV, LaserDisc, DVD, Blu-ray, Audio-tapes, Vinyl. I have also 16mm & 35mm (but no projectors)

12
NIce to hear VHS somehow will survive. I look at my 500 (original) tapes in the basement and think to myself 'what shall I do with it ??' Sometimes the boxes have great artwork, sometimes a film is not even released on DVD - yet it takes away so much space .. :)  I will always keep the very early tapes, early 80's.. Somehow they represent the start of a new era. I'll also keep the very first 'homevideo' products, my Super-8 films :). Today it appear like 'stoneage' to the film fans born after the 90s. But it was soo cool to have your own cinema in the cellar, a 150 inch screen, sofas & a bar...
I still have WHERE EAGLES DARE; ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZZ & FOD / FDM.

It's her.
Natalie would not have made much sense, that was my problem in the first place: Clint is quite young, this was obviousely taken
pre-1968 and he wasn't big enough (yet) to pose with Natalie Wood for fun (there's no movie or studio connection), who was a major star in the 60s.

14
Great job!
Somehow I was sure it is a lady I reaally like. Adoring N.Wood is a no-brainer, but I also like Susan Kohner a lot, especially
in IMITATION OF LIFE. Never thought I'd mix them up, but on some stills....

15
Like I said, at first I thought it is not N.Wood. But it comes awful close, don't you think :

16
I thought there'd be a lot of ideas here regarding this image ??
What is this? Aren't we curious?

At first I wasn't sure it IS Natalie Wood, but I guess it is her. It must date back roughly to 1963 - 1969 I'd say.. She was mostly with Warners or Paramount, so maybe 1968 around the time of PAINT YOUR WAGON?

There are three different French sets. First release was a set of 12, with 3 or 4 cards printed with wrong, reversed angles (mirror image).
The mistakes had been taken care quite quickly and those cards were printed again (same quality) the right way.
In the 70s the re-release set of 11 cards was printed. One card (Tuco & Blonidie walking in the trenches) was missing in that set, maybe the couldn't find the blue-print. Nice, (rather better than 67) image quality, the white title area at the bottom was smaller.

The French always knew how to deal with film art. I think it shows, considering how fast they corrected those 'wrong angle' lobby cards! In the US studios often treated the promo material like chewing gum paper and couldn't care less - the US GBU set is the worst (first release) set worldwide: wrong angles on 5 or 6 out of 8 cards! I hate that. Same with the US set for my favorite film, THE WILD BUNCH: the best card, the 4 guys walking - WRONG angle. And nothing is easier than to tell the right angle on a WESTERN photo - they made them all left-handed :)

Well, it's not that bad.  Condition B+, slightly used, small paperloss and light wear. Back to 'normal' in no time..
But the image is not clear, I can't recognize the film, which movie is it promoting ?
