#8: No.

Hm, good question. It's been a while since I saw it and I'm usually vague on how long it takes to get to a certain point.

But I'd say No. (#7.)

43
#6: No.

44
#5: No, just the one.

45
Is it associated with a member of Earl's family?

#4: No.

You guys might get this one faster than I thought! Good questions, so far.

It's been raining for about a month in Nashville, but no snow this year. :(

We've had some of our first real snow (that didn't change to and get dissolved in a "wintry mix" or rain) over the past several days ... one storm a day, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning, and now Sunday evening (though tonight it's still so warm outside that it looks like snow coming down but hits the ground like rain).

Friday morning there was about an inch of soft, new-fallen snow in the park. I love running in that stuff! It's so soft underfoot and it's wonderful when you hit a stretch where no one else has set foot yet. Like being all alone in the big city.

47
Is it associated with one of the cartel members?

#3: No.

48
Is it an object which is associated with a character other than Earl?

#2: It is!

49
Did you both have a nice weekend?

I did! :)

50
Is it an inanimate object?

#1: Yes.

51
Me too, and I have got one!

The film is The Mule. Ask away!  :D

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Name your Top 20 Westerns of All Time
« on: March 02, 2019, 11:16:08 PM »
This is an interesting topic, but it belongs here in the Off Topic forum, rather than in the General Discussion forum, which is for general discussion of Eastwood-related topics. I hope Moorman doesn't mind! :)

More than a decade ago, we had a similar topic here: http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=5425.0

Could we make it 8:30 Sunday? I just today got an invitation to a birthday party early on Saturday evening. I may get home by 8:30, but I can't be sure.

I'm posting the following images on GearDog's behalf:

First, the display window with Clint's poncho, the "Dollars" gun and the original snake grip, at the Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles. The picture is from 2005. GearDog told me that Clint had only lent the items to the museum for display that year.



Next, here's an enlargement of the explanatory sign with the items:



I note that the "Courtesy of" line for the poncho does indeed say "Courtesy of Clint Eastwood." However, the "Courtesy of" line for the gun says "Courtesy of Giovanni Corridori." Corridori, as I've just found out, was the man in charge of special effects on all three "Dollars" films: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovanni_Corridori

So while it's true that this gun was used by Clint in A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More, as the sign says, it is presumably one of several that he used, and remained with the special effects man rather than going home with Clint.

Since the sign is cut off at the bottom, I can't see the "Courtesy of" line for the original rattlesnake grip, but presumably that is from Clint's collection, and was originally on the gun he used in Rawhide.

Thanks, GearDog, this is fascinating stuff!  8)

If you still have trouble posting it, let me know and I'll try to help out! :)

You might also be interested to know that we have a thread for Clint's guns in general, here: http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=4347.0

Unfortunately, especially at the beginning most of the pictures are no longer showing. That includes the post about the "Dollars" gun.

But there is also a lot of information in a post by David Maccar on the Range365 site, here: https://www.range365.com/guns-clint-eastwood-movies-1964-1970

Also, there is the Internet Movie Firearms Database, probably the most comprehensive source for movie guns information in general. Here's the beginning of what it says about the gun in A Fistful of Dollars:

Single Action Army

Joe (Clint Eastwood), aka "The Man With No Name" uses a Single Action Army 5 1/2" Artillery with a color case hardened frame as his weapon of choice in the film. The infamous "Silver Rattlesnake Grips" were first seen in Rawhide, the 1959 television series he starred in, in which an outlaw used the same SAA and his character, Rowdy Yates, killed him and took the gun for himself. Multiple other characters are also seen using SAAs.

None of these sources, however, says anything about the actual caliber of Clint's specific gun, as opposed to the historic gun it was supposed to be. So again, thanks for that information.

Hi, GearDog, and welcome to the Eastwood Web Board.

There is a thread on how to post images here: http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=2338.0

However, it goes all the way back to 2004 and things on the Internet have changed quite a bit since then. There are some later posts in the thread that should help, but meanwhile I'll give you the gist:

1) Your image needs to be on the Internet already; you can't upload an image here from your own computer.

2) Most images that you find on the Internet can be posted here. Just right click on the image and from the menu that pops up, copy the URL or "image location" for the image, and paste it here between these tags, but without the spaces after the "[": [ img] [ /img].

So  [ img]http://users.erols.com/kcoblenz/Snake1.JPG[ /img] without the spaces becomes


(That is a screencap from Rawhide. I believe the "Dollars" gun was first used by Clint on that series. It's certainly the same rattlesnake on the grips.)

There are some images that can't be "hot linked" like that, but they are the minority.

3) If you have a picture of your own you want to post, it will have to be hosted on a site that allows uploads from your computer. These days, I think most of us use imgur.com. It's free and really easy to use. Plus, it gives you a link you can copy that's already coded to be posted here, no extra tags needed. Matt posted some instructions for Imgur towards the end of the image thread, starting here:

http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=2338.msg222004#msg222004

Thanks for the information on the specifics of Clint's first "Dollars" gun. I hope you have a picture of the Autry Museum display and will be able to post it here.  8)
