Eastwood News / Re:Where extras dare ..... Not !!!
« on: August 01, 2003, 04:55:13 PM »
I've just checked Ingrid's site, IT IS OFFICIALLY AVAILABLE!! :o

NOW, if the people responsible for putting the Where Eagles Dare dvd together do not chase up the material available on this tape, they should not be in a job!

Her Original screen tests, previously unseen footage from the film..

This material deserve's to be on the disc. I was telling Philo about this material way back, I did not post about it, as I don't think this tape was available to buy many years ago. But I knew the material was out there.

 :o I had no idea the Pit showcase tape was out there to buy?

I knew about the Where Eagles Dare material on this many many years ago, but until now, I did not know it was available to buy?
Or is it ???
For now I guess I better keep :-X

Eastwood News / Re:What's Everyone's feelings on.......
« on: July 27, 2003, 12:30:14 PM »
my feelings have not changed JJ, I'm disgusted at the lack of extras, on all of these titles. As for WED, I think it's shameful >:(, pure disgust, Philo and myself know exactly what should be on this release, christ, between us, we could fill it ourselves..
nuff said.

Hi M! :)
So it is in fact Anamorphic 1.85:1?
Is that correct?

The buyer has already paid for it Bren' ;)

The US Laserdisc was the widescreen version of 1.85:1 (that's why I stuck with that format)
I don't know of any DVD release though.

 ::) Yep, just checked it myself:
US $3,350.00 (approx. £2,065.99)

I'd like to know how much my Original Universal The Mummy with Boris Karloff would be worth now, only a Swedish insert, but original 1933 first issue... and in Nr mint condition, the US One sheet I think still holds the record price, If I remember right it was approx $425,000.  :o

..and I agree, I think this should be a news thread item.
You don't see Eastwood posters going for this amount everyday.

 ;) Could of been the episode Sudden Drifter  ;)
Only kidding, welcome womanwithnoname, I'm afraid Clint did not appear in The Twilight Zone. As KC said, the scene you describe does sound like a mix of High Plains Drifter and Clint did cause (possibly) a heart attack in Sudden Impact, the fourth Dirty Harry Movie..
The show did have some great guest stars, who have starred along side Clint, inc Lee Van Cleef, Lee Marvin, Pat Hingle, Don Rickles, Telly Savalas and his friend William Shatner who starred in one of the all time classic episodes Nightmare at 20,000 feet. At it's peak, I would guess that Clint's working on Rawhide was keeping him busy enough.. :)
Hope this information is of some help.

Wow, I think I went to bed last night with Two replies in this thread ;D ;D Misty you are right, the picture itself is not bad, I think I have many shots from the actual photo shoot, that were used on Magazine covers etc around the early 80's (minus the grey/silver paint job ;D) I'm sure Philo is familiar with these shots also...
AND it is for real, I can work wonders with an airbrush, but I promise this is not my work!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D
Yeah Video and DVD art sounds good Matt, are we talking just Eastwood or any subject?

 ::) check this out, this is the cover for a European release of THE EIGER SANCTION. Looks like the person in the publicity dept went out for a liquid lunch, came back and let their airbrush run wild :o :o :o :o

General Discussion / Hey Philo I've seen blood Work!!
« on: July 17, 2003, 03:17:00 PM »
I'm not sure but better add possible spoilers?

Well, well, well I have a feeling I am probably one of the very last members of this group to finally see BLOOD WORK... ::)

My Verdict, should anyone be interested: ;D
I have to say, I think this is probably one of the most enjoyable Eastwood films (for me personally) since IN THE LINE OF FIRE!!! Yes, I really thought it was that good! I really didn't know what to expect..
Firstly, and I know the book was a hell of a lot more complex, which would not of made for good viewing.
But purely as a film, I thought it was a great thriller, an intelligent story, although I have to say I was beginning to put 2 and 2 together before the reveals in the film, so maybe a little predictable in areas. (I must point out at this point, I have not read the book yet, but Debie had). So I really never had any pre conceptions of the actual story, yet my early ideas in the story were proved right. I did not work out who the killer was straight away, but had an idea about the guy helping in the store etc etc..
I thought there was some wonderful touches, including the way Clint holds on the trio eating donuts, just silence, as the 3 of them just sit/stand there and munch...  8). Performances were ok I guess :-\
For some reason it felt very Tightropeish for me.
But as soon as Clint reaches for that Pump action rifle..HI HO!!!! AND AWAY WE GOOOO! Just Great, blasting though the screen (and my centre speaker ;D)
and Clint looking right at home, silent, cool and deadly!
I was amazed how little score there was ???
Plenty of chances to use it, but it just didn't seem to come..
I have to say though, on a first viewing, I got up feeling very happy and with a healthy looking grin across my face, and I don't think I've felt that instantly good about one of Clints films since IN THE LINE OF FIRE..
Deb was filling me in how the book varied etc, which sounded fine from a reading point of view, but sounded as if it would of been a little dull from a watching point of view. Without taking into account the major difference between book and film, and without actually reading the book myself, it sounds as if the balance was probably about right, although as I said, I have not read the book ..
I was just pleasantly surprised, good, solid thriller. :)

Well done D!
Yeah the amount of Kids, I went by Scorpios line in the film, rather than trying to picture the scene in my head..

You've recently worked on additional dialogue for the upcoming reissue of The good, the Bad and the Ugly, which was originally released in 1966. What was that like?

Clint Eastwood
It was an odd experience. I found myself on a soundstage doing a voice over on myself. I looked so much younger then that it felt like I was voicing my son Kyle. It's different going back- that was made a long time ago. It was hard to remember the plot line of the movie, much less the new scenes.

It's not a great deal Matt, but it's there for the record..
